NYPD Officer’s Secret Taping Reveals Superior Ordered Him To Stop And Frisk Black Males

The Political Agitator response: Folks you can be fooled to think that only the children are at-risk when it comes to being profiled, well you better wake the hell up because all of us are at-risk. I have said that years ago when the at-risk mess was so hot and heavy in the schools as it related to our young black males.

An NYPD officer gave a powerful assist to a class-action lawsuit against stop and frisk Thursday, according to a New York Daily News article.

Officer Pedro Serrano (pictured), who also testified in Manhattan Federal Court Wednesday, secretly recorded deputy inspector Christopher McCormack telling him to stop “the right people, the right time, the right location,” at a Bronx precinct.

“He meant Black and Hispanics,” Serrano testified on the stand Thursday. Serrano can be heard voicing that suspicion on the tape: (Source: Read more)

Men And Women Showing Their A….. Literally. Is It Racial Profiling?

Why do men and women want to show their a….. literally? No a law should not have to be put in place in order to make these guys and gals pull their pants up. If all public places would not allow it then I believe we would see a change. I see signs on doors we will not serve you if you don’t have a shirt and shoes on so incorporating saggy pants could be added.

It is not all about young folks because I see some grown folks men and women showing their a…. as well.

Some folks say it is the parents who are responsible. In some cases yes because if they buy them baggy pants then what do you expect. The pants that fit some leave home with them up but let them sag when they are out of their parents site. I have seen some children who come from religious homes so either these parents don’t know or just don’t care.

I have seen schools, churches and other places allow these guys and gals walk around with their pants sagging so why should I say something to them when it will means nothing when the powers that be who runs the schools, churches and other don’t say anything.

I heard someone say it is about economics but I disagree. It don’t cost anything to pull your pants up.

I know some folks say it should not become law and I totally agree but something needs to be done. It is sad when we can’t trust the law enforcement to handle laws on the books.

It should not be racial profiling but just like anything else it could lead to that. However obviously if law enforcement has to act then there will be others present because I would think it will be in public facility with others around. People have cell phones and if the situation seems to be out of control all they have to do is take some pictures.

All I know is something needs to be done.

NAACP TO HOLD REGIONAL PUBLIC HEARING ON

POLICE MISCONDUCT, RACIAL PROFILING IN GREENVILLE

The NC State Conference of the NAACP along with the Southern Coalition for Social Justice and the UNC Center for Civil Rights will conduct a public hearing for Eastern North Carolina to receive public comment on police misconduct, excessive force and racial profiling.  It will be held on Monday, June 28 at 7:00pm at the Lucille Gorham Intergenerational Center located at 1100 Ward Street in West Greenville.  Persons or youth who are 18 years and younger and have experienced an incident of excessive force or police misconduct must present with an adult. All speakers must sign in before speaking. 

Through its Law Enforcement Accountability project, the NAACP has developed a “smart and safe” framework in which to advocate for equal justice and safer communities.  This hearing is an effort to receive live reports of incidents and allegations and to collect statistical data from the region.

NAACP strongly believes that all communities seek a fair and just administration and enforcement of the law, and that all communities, irrespective of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or religion have a right to be safe.  A report released by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and The Rights Working Group indicated that, “racial and ethnic profiling by members of law enforcement at federal, state and local levels is one of today’s most significant challenges to equality.”

State NAACP President, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, remarked, “Our goal in advocating for justice in the criminal justice system is to eliminate disparate treatment of African-Americans and other minorities in all aspects of law enforcement and criminal justice.  As the oldest civil rights organization in the nation, we are mandated to stay informed of issues that occur in our communities, and investigate and then working with key stakeholders such as civic leadership the faith community, and other organizations to ensure that law enforcement is just and fair in both administration of justice and the enforcement of the law.”

Mr. Calvin Henderson, Pitt County Branch of the NAACP can be contacted at 252-758-7645 or the State Office at 1-866-NC-NAACP. ###

Racial Profiling Winterville NC

Dennis E. Bottoms

421 Angier Court

Winterville, North Carolina 28590

January 24, 2010

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

Around 10:30 the evening of January 23, 2010, a Winterville Police Officer rang the door bell. There were two police cars with all lights flashing surrounding the rear of my drive way. Upon answering the door, I was asked if the black Mercedes (my son’s car) parked in my drive way belong to me. He stated he received a complaint from a neighbor about a suspicious vehicle in a yard. There was no loud music or criminal activities taking place in my son’s car. Also, a concealed weapon was founded on my son (while he sat in his car) and was confiscated. An unoccupied house (three to four months), sit two doors down, had a vehicle in it yard (front end facing the street) with no one in the car, no lights from the house, and no movement. Not once did the officer(s) approach that house or investigate the vehicle parked in its drive way.

Upon coming into the house, my son explained that the police officer sat near his vehicle for a long period of time (twenty minutes), before he put on the blue lights. I explained to him that the officer was waiting for back up before approaching the (alleged crime) scene. He went on to say the officer asked him did he live here and his response was yes. The policeman asked him to step out of the vehicle and he was frisked (searched) and a weapon was founded and confiscated. He was never asked why he was sitting in the car (with his friends) but was told of a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood was called in.

I have a degree in criminal justice, and one thing that was taught is the first thing an officer does, upon arriving at a scene (involving vehicles), is to verify the license tags. Having a weapon in your possession on private property does not constitute concealed weapon. To frisk or search an individual requires a probable cause. We have lived in this neighborhood for nine months with the same vehicles. My son often sits in his car and listens to his music. Never had anyone complained or call the local law enforcement about a suspicious vehicle.

Where in the constitution does it state that a teenager cannot sit in his car (while it’s parked in his yard)? I do think racial profiling is unconstitutional. Many of nights there have been young teenagers parked in the parking lot of Food Lion (Winterville) and no blue lights or police officers on the scene. Is it because they are young, innocent, and not suspicious vehicles?

My son and his friends were asked for their names, addresses and telephone numbers. Again, this is all for sitting in the drive way of our home. They deserve an apology and their names, addresses, and telephone numbers should be discarded. Not that I trust or many other trust the police officer to be trustworthy due to racial profiling. Is this the reason why young teenagers do not respect men in blue?

As a member of a local city board I’m embarrass to say I live in Winterville.

Thank You,

Dennis E. Bottoms
