    Tyler perry incident

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...73884520120406

    i read this article. I have two cops witness a traffic violation. They pull the driver over. End of story. HOWEVER>>>

    Tyler Perry admits to breaking the law left turn from right lane. gets pulled over. Windows tinted. Complains he is pulled over cause he is black. No dipshyt you got pulled over for an illegal turn.
    Now the cops are under investigation.

    So the windows were tinted. They could not have seen the color of the person driving. investigation complete. Mr. Perry, sign here for your citations.

    Just a publicity stunt. I've got money says he's lying through his teeth

    One thing I have often wondered:

    Where is the outrage by the Jackson / Sharpton camps when "The Card" is played but race truly has nothing to do with the issue?

    In my opinion it detracts from actually addressing real race issues and racism that still exists.

    This story is complete bogus. A defense of racial profiling is null and void when you're pulled over/cited due to breaking a law with no indication of nonprofessional conduct or undue aggression. Ugh. Perry is just stirring the kettle.

    I just lost what little respect I had for Tyler Perry.

    But the real shocking part of this story is:




    Tyler Perry has a security detail?
    I yell "PIKACHU" before I tase someone.

    According to Bob Costas, Sandusky's penis raped those boys, not Sandusky.

    Tyler Perry 'non-incident' is more accurate.

    If I were the officers, I would sue. You may not make a case but it puts a fire up their butt.

    When people scream racial profiling on traffic stops to me, I just tell them next time they are driving at night, try to determine the race of the person in front of them. Usually shuts them up.

    Tyler Perry is an actor, screenwriter, director/producer, etc. Not too long ago, I think he was the biggest earner in all of entertainment.

    It is a shame; I always had a bit of respect for him. A lot of it has disappeared, now.

    Just sayin here, there's a possibility he was truly joking about the race thing. He might not be, but there's a chance of it.

    A rather sick and stupid joke to make, if that is the case.

    When he used his personal jet to fly crackhead Whitney Houston's body back to no, I lost the tiny respect I had.
    Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

    I really hope the investigation has more to do with the 3rd cop showing up and letting him go, rather than Tyler Perry's complaint of "racial profiling", which this is an obvious case of NOT racial profiling. If I pulled someone over, and I didn't know they were a celebrity, and they started talking about not wanting to be followed, etc.; I'd suspect they were a tad bit crazy.

    A few days before President Obama was supposed to speak at my studio, I was leaving the studio, headed to the airport. Most times when I leave the studio I have an unmarked escort. Other times I constantly check in my rearview mirror to be sure that I'm not being followed. It’s a safety precaution that my security team taught me. As I got to an intersection, I made a left turn from the right lane and was pulled over by two police officers. I pulled the car over and put it in park. Then, I let the window down and sat in the car waiting for the officer. The officer came up to the driver’s door and said that I made an illegal turn. I said, "I signaled to get into the turning lane, then made the turn because I have to be sure I’m not being followed." He said, “why do you think someone would be following you?”

    Before I could answer him, I heard a hard banging coming from the passenger window. I had never been in this position before so I asked the officer who was at my window what was going on and why is someone banging on the window like that. He said, “let your window down, let your window down. Your windows are tinted.” As I let down the passenger window, there was another officer standing on the passenger side of the car. He said, “what is wrong with you?” The other officer said to him, “he thinks he’s being followed.” Then, the second officer said, “why do you think someone is following you? What is wrong with you?”

    Before I could answer the officer on the passenger side, the one on the driver's side had reached into the car and started pulling on the switch that turns the car on and off, saying, “put your foot on the brake, put your foot on the brake!” I was so confused as to what he was doing, or what he thought he was doing. It looked like he was trying to pull the switch out of the dashboard. I finally realized that he thought that switch was the key, so I told him that it wasn’t the key he was grabbing. I reached down into the cup holder to get the key, not realizing that the key had a black leather strap on it. As I grabbed it they both tensed up and I dropped it as I heard my mother’s voice from when I was a little boy.

    My mother would always say to me, “if you get stopped by the police, especially if they are white policemen, you say ‘yes sir’ and ‘no sir’, and if they want to take you in, you go with them. Don’t resist, you hear me? Don’t make any quick moves, don’t run, you just go.” My mother was born in 1945 into a segregated hotbed town in rural Louisiana. She had known of many colored men at the time who were lynched and never heard from again. Since I was her only son for ten years, growing up she was so worried about me. It wasn’t until after I heard her voice that I realized that both of these officers were white.

    The officer on the driver's side continued to badger me, “why do you think someone is following you?” I then said, “I think you guys need to just write the ticket and do whatever you need to do.” It was so hostile. I was so confused. It was happening so fast that I could easily see how this situation could get out of hand very quickly. I didn’t feel safe at all. But one officer stopped his questioning and said, “we may not let you go. You think you’re being followed, what’s wrong with you?” At this point, I told him that I wanted to get out of the car. I wanted the passersby to see what was happening.

    As I stepped out of the car another officer pulled up in front of my car. This officer was a black guy. He took one look at me and had that “Oh No” look on his face. He immediately took both officers to the back of my car and spoke to them in a hushed tone. After that, one of the officers stayed near his car while one came back, very apologetic.

    I said all of that to say this: do you see how quickly this could have turned for the worse?

    Now I know that there are many great officers, patrolmen and security guys out there. I am aware of that. But although we have made significant strides with racial profiling in this country, the world needs to know that we are still being racially profiled, and until this situation has improved greatly, I’m not sure how a murder in Florida can be protected by a “stand your ground law.”

    And in another case that I have been screaming at the top of my lungs about, also in Florida, is the case of Terrance Williams and Felipe Santos, a young black man and a young Mexican man. Eight years ago, in Naples, FL, they were both put in the back of Deputy Steve Calkins' police car and never heard from again.

    They were never arrested, never brought to jail. They were put into the back of Deputy Calkins' car and never heard from again. And to this day Deputy Steve Calkins is a free man.

    I guess it's time to march in Naples now.

    RACIAL PROFILING SHOULD BE A HATE CRIME INVESTIGATED BY THE FBI!!!

    That way local government can’t make the decision on whether or not these people get punished.

    -Tyler
    Seriously?!? So if he was a white guy claiming to be followed (aka possibly crazy) the cops would have just let him go?? **SIGH**

    It's crap like THIS that keeps the racism flowing in this country - on both sides....

    WHAT. A. DOOSHE!

    He wants to talk about racial profilling, how about he stop profilling those cops as racists just because they are white.
    I yell "PIKACHU" before I tase someone.

    Like you can tell the race or gender of a driver whose vehicle has tinted windows!

    I didn't know who he was until his "private" jet flew Whitneys body back to NJ and it was all over the news.
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

    Agreed 100%! A lot of people in this country do not care about race and have left it in the past, it is people like this who keep bringing it back up.

    My dad told us kids a very similar same thing: "When stopped, show respect to authority, keep your hands visible, don't resist or run." He was explaining the officer safety aspect that we should always consider. He didn't say "especially if they are white policemen" since race had nothing to do with the general advice. Saying that is instilling in your child to think that any white officer is automatically bad.

    Exactly!!! Telling them to automatically treat white cops like they're evil racists is setting EVERYONE up for failure. Because if you're doing something wrong and get stopped by a black cop, you can forget all about treating them with respect and act like they're your best friend.

    My dad taught us that if the Officer said "Halt" and I did not, the officer could shoot me. Where he grew up in RI they could and did shoot at fleeing vehicles, he had a friend who outran the cops, heard stones hitting his car during the chase, when he got home there were bullet holed in his car.

    White/Black did not enter into the situation in the town where I grew up...there was some stuff down in Toledo in the late 60's but at home 25 miles from there we simply had no exposure to it for the most part.
    Just pay your dues, and be quiet :-)

    I'd take that bet. Everyone who has ever met Tyler Perry (and I have) knows he bat%#$% Crazy to begin with. It probably went down like he said and the officers who did the stop probably thought he was an "EDP". They weren't far wrong....

    The Boondocks TV show had an episode about him. It's the truth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=wCNWsWFVjS8
