I seen a news segment on a Florida police officer who gave tickets based on race. He only gave the tickets to minorities, and gave causes such as running a stop sign or running a red light. When complaints started coming in about the officer, an investigation took place and it was discovered that the officer had fabricated many tickets. The officer served with the department for 25 years so no one really knows how long he has been doing this.

  1. Things like this make me understang why black people are paranoid about things like this. people say blacks always complaining but because of things like this we have to be suspicious.

  2. That is CRAZY! In truth i really don’t care for Florida police, and especially UFPD. Yet, this only verifies my feelings about police all because one lone officer makes the rest of them look bad. Being a minority this only pisses me off more, and makes me question whether the next ticket i recieve is for my race or becuase i legit broke the law.

  3. I just can’t beleive this and he was serving the law enforcement for 25 years, 25 years of racism! That is ridiculous. People with power really abuse their power. To think that someone that is suppose to protect citizens is going out his way to feed on his racism that is just sick. I def. agree that this is why blacks are so skeptical about polie officers and what they said at the end that the lawyer expects him to be back on the job, yea that would be great! I just dont get it.

  4. I never had a doubt in my mind that these types of things happen. I don’t know what la la land everyone is living in but if you ask me… this is typical! I can predict that for the 25 years that someone had to know what he was doing or atleast knew his views and just never reported him.

  5. Even though things like this are suprising, things like this go on all the time. This cop just so happen to get caught. People discriminate all the time but nowadays it is mainly covert and subliminal. These types of things are the things that keep race a very big issue in America today.
