Bama cop is upset that his racial profiling of Blk man went viral & says people are 'race-baiting'
Alabama police officer disgusted by 'race-baiting' after safety stop
Pleasant Grove police Lt. Danny Reid is outraged. He's been called a racist, a terrorist, and told it's a good thing when cops get killed.
And that was just this morning.
A video is making its way across the internet showing a Pleasant Grove officer questioning a young black man in a Subway uniform, a conversation recorded by the young man on his cell phone. According to the website photographyisnotacrime.com, the young man is Deonte Lynn and he believes he was stopped because he is black.
The video shows the officer pulling out his notepad and pen, and asking for Lynn's identification. Lynn complains about being stopped, says he just got off work and was only walking across the street.
The conversation gets heated – at least on the part of Lynn, who starts to curse. The officer eventually made Lynn put his hands on the car while he patted him down. That's when the video ended.
Reid said the interaction between the two actually happened three months ago. And naturally, he said, it doesn't show everything.
"This guy was walking in the street and he was dangerously in the road, so the officer rolled down his window and told him to get out of the street so he wouldn't get hit,'' Reid said. "He copped an attitude and got out of the street."
The officer drove away, and Lynn got right back in the street, Reid said. That's when the officer turned around, stopped and got out of the car. "The officer said, 'Can you get out of the street. You're going to get run over and I don't want you to get hit,'' he said.
Lynn wasn't arrested and wasn't even given a ticket. "This is a case where he was stopped for his safety and tried to turn it around into some sort of racial issue, which it wasn't,to make a police officer look bad,'' Reid said. "This is disgusting."
The officer, Reid said, did everything the right way. "This is a police officer telling a person to get out of harm's way,'' he said.
At the bottom of the photographyisnotacrime.com article, the author lists the telephone number for the Pleasant Grove Police Department and encourages readers to voice their complaints. And that they have.
"What's further disgusting is people from all over the country are calling, regular people with nothing better to do than sit there and watch YouTube,'' Reid said. "One man called and said, 'Why do you hate black people?'"
Another told a dispatcher, "Tell that officer he is a terrorist, and I like it when cops get wasted."
Reid said it's nothing short of race-baiting.
"It's unreal,'' Reid said. "It's disgusting that we're even having this conversation."
Damn black people & their smartphones.. Why want they let us profile them in peace w/ their phones turned off...
