Here we go again, another prominent black person has lied about being racially profiled by cops.
Dorothy Bland (no relation to Sandra Bland), a dean at the University of North Texas, said she was out running in her upscale neighborhood early one Sunday morning when two local cops stopped her for no other reason than being black and wearing a hoodie.
Bland wrote an article for the Dallas Morning News about the incident and claimed when she asked the officers why the stopped her they couldn’t give her an answer. The following is part of the story she wrote:
Although I am not related to Sandra Bland, I thought about her, Freddie Gray and the dozens of others who have died while in police custody. For safety’s sake, I posted the photo of the officers on Facebook, and within hours, more than 100 Facebook friends spread the news from New York to California.
For anyone who doesn’t think racial profiling happens, I can assure you it does happen. For a sanity check, I stopped by the mayor’s house and asked him, “Do I look like a criminal?” Mayor Bill Heidemann said no and shook his head in disbelief. I appreciate the mayor being a good neighbor, but why should he need to verify that I am not a menace to society?
What a stinking liar and why is this the explanation of choice for blacks who are caught breaking laws? The true explanation of the incident, backed up by dash cam video, is given by the Corinth Police Chief. The officers saw Bland running earlier but didn’t stop her until she was almo0st run over by a truck… Because she was running in the middle of the street… With ear buds that kept her from hearing traffic…
The officers stopped Bland, told her about the close call and suggested she run on the sidewalk or facing traffic, then asked for ID which is standard. The Police Chief explained:
“unaware that there was a pickup truck directly behind her that had to almost come to a complete stop to avoid hitting her.”
“The driver of the truck looked at the officers as they passed and held his hands in the air, which implied ‘aren’t you going to do something about this?’ The officers turned around and drove behind Ms. Bland.”
“Ms. Bland had been observed earlier by these same officers, but she was not in the street and impeding traffic, so she was not contacted.”
“Impeding traffic is a Class C misdemeanor, and it is our policy to ask for identification from people we encounter for this type violation. I am surprised by her comments as this was not a confrontational encounter but a display of professionalism and genuine concern for her safety.”
Another lying liberal spreading propaganda and inciting more hatred towards America’s police officers. Thank goodness for dash cam videos.
