Reminds me of that Harvard prof who had the cops called on him for going into his own house.
"Race is the modality through which class is lived"
EDIT: quote obviously not from henry, but by stuart mfin hall
How late was this maybe neighbors could tell who was going in maybe they heard the locksmith and thought someone was forcing themselves in to many variables
In the end cops showed up to do there job
How much is she suing for?
to be fair, maybe the neighbor saw the locksmith opening the door?
the neighbor called the cops on a hispanic female, not a male locksmith
What I don't understand in all these situations is are there not people of color on the force/at the scene when this stuff is happening? It makes me think that police aren't racist as they are they are power blind or groupthink blind. Somewhat similar to how some guys act when they are with their frat and how different/nice/conscientious they act when you are with them in a different setting.
I'm assuming you got this off Huffington Post?
They have a recording of the 911 call on there. The caller says that he saw a a male tapping on the door, that's when he called the police. He describes the locksmith as a latino male with a hat on. He then he describes two females that he "thinks" are hispanic.
Its a hardknock life
My thoughts are this doesn't just happen to black people. Once had 14 officers (seven cars) descend on my friend's house because someone thought we were breaking in (we were locked out and trying to find an unlocked window). The neighbor, who even knew the friggin' guy, called police. The two of us are white as hell and it happened in the whitest neighborhood on the planet. This was 15 years ago, btw. This is just how cops are. The guns drawn is a little much, but it's not necessarily a racial thing, it's often a bored, overzealous cop thing.
Naive *** little boy
Well, if this happened to a white person, the cop would simply be called an a-hole. If it happens to a minority, the cop is a racist. I'd say there are more a-hole cops than racist cops, but that doesn't fit the narrative.
^^In all seriousness,when does this ever happen to white people though? I don't think I've ever heard of an example
cant respect people who cant take responsibility for their own misdoings.
Why's he gotta be white tho
