    Texas Officer says Blacks Have "Violent Tendencies"

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/video-sh...lack-motorist/



    "I've become fearful to live my life," King told the newspaper. "I would rather stay home. I've become afraid of the people who are supposed to protect me and take care of me."

    In one of two videos, Officer Patrick Spradlin is heard talking to King, who was pulled over for speeding, about race while driving her to jail.

    "Why are so many people afraid of black people?" Spradlin asks.

    King replies that she is also trying to figure that out.

    "I can give you a really good idea why it might be that way," he said. "Violent tendencies."

    Spradlin goes on to say that "I don't blame" white people for being afraid because of violence in the black community. "Some of them, because of their appearance and whatnot, some of them are very intimidating," he says.

    The newspaper identified King as an elementary school teacher. Her attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment.

    Imo - the so called 'LE training' needs not only a review but scrutinizing from a major 'think tank'. This thinking and or perception did not happen all by itself to individual people.

    Historically a large group of people can be led to do the unthinkable. Imo, that is what has happened in the US over a long period of time.

    I read about this yesterday at MyStatesman and watched both videos and didn't feel at the time that I could handle another one. In any case looking at it again today, I just realized that the actual incident took place a year ago!!!

    “The traffic stop happened in June 2015 but wasn't made public until the Austin American-Statesman published the video Thursday. Acevedo called a news conference hours later and said both officers have been taken off street patrol and are on desk duty pending new internal investigations, which he said will include both officers' conduct in the year since the incident.”

    So, what's been going on for the last year?

    MyStatesman (4 free articles)

    http://www.mystatesman.com/news/news...emium-referral

    “Video from the previously unreported June 2015 incident was obtained by the American-Statesman and KVUE-TV this week. The video shows the traffic stop escalating rapidly in the seven seconds from when officer Bryan Richter, who is white, first gives a command to 26-year-old Breaion King to close her car door to when he forcibly removes her from the driver’s seat, pulls her across a vacant parking space and hurls her to the asphalt.

    Richter wrote in his report of the incident that he acted quickly because King demonstrated an “uncooperative attitude” and was “reaching for the front passenger side of the vehicle.” He didn’t know whether she had a weapon, he wrote. He said King resisted by pulling away from him and wrapping her hands and arms around the steering wheel.

    Police charged King with resisting arrest, but the Travis County attorney dismissed the case after reviewing the police dashcam video.”

    This video just sickened me. Ms. King is so small and lanky and he throws her around like a rag doll. It's outrageous!! And who did the first investigation that left these two bozos on the force????

    I have encountered people elsewhere on the Internet with the same attitude. When I dispute their notion that blacks naturally have violent tendencies, I'm told I have my head in the sand. They support their claims by stating there are 100's of videos on Youtube of blacks fighting. Ummm....I've gone to high school and college with, worked with, and lived among many black people and yet I can think of none who've had "violent tendencies." But, apparently I have my head buried in the sand because I don't search Youtube for certain videos.

    It's unacceptable to allow people with the same ignorant misconceptions in positions authority, when they are supposed to protect everyone in society. There seems to be a vicious cycle in this country, fueled in part by a lot of ignorance.

    Which means that the cops share the same attitude as internet racist trolls. It’s kind of ironic too, considering all the thousands of YouTube videos of cops displaying their violent tendencies.

    I am judgmental. It's what has kept me alive.
    I understood every word you said. It was the order that you said them that has me confused.

    I've seen some of those videos. Terrifying. A lot like this one, honestly.

    Attitudes like this in what should have been a simple stop it's not hard to see how the attitude can interfere in any interaction between LEOs and AAs. I have no doubt the officer in this video believes what he said. I doubt this is the first time he's treated someone like this and I doubt it's the first time he's said something like this.
