    Re: Cop prevented RB from being with dying relative

    I won't comment on how i truly feel about this subject.
    I will say that as a black man, the police are a 2 headed coin. Whenever I am in trouble, I call them and they are professional and pleasent. They run t trouble when most are running away from it. That's heroic and one of the reasons my 6 year old brother wishes to be a cop.

    On the flip side, police are people and many have their own biases and prejudices. I have been pulled over multiple times for driving a car that appears to be out of my class range (appearently SC430s and fitted caps don't mix) and I was in a "notorious drug neighboorhood". Honestly, I think this cop would have been more compasionate to Moats had he been white. I think some cops defensive alarms start going off when a person of color is in the stopped car in front of them.

    I'm not saying that this guy is racist. I don't beleive him to be. I am saying that this level of disrespect and the subhuman treatment of Moats and his family by this officer is common in the black community. Some fears are warrented others are based on pre judging a situation prior to actually understanding who you are interacting with. I don't think this officer should be fired but he should be retrained.

    If this was my mother or my future wifes mother in law...I may have been shot dead that day! You don't f*ck with a mans family, let alone his dying family. I get watery eyes just thinking about it.

    I think people forget that Moats ran a red light and that is why he was stopped but come on. As a cop you have to know when to fall back and be show compassion.

    I respect the fact that he did this.
