I think the past few years I have really become paranoid when I drive. My head is constantly on a swivel surveying what is going on around me. The sad part is it isnt because I am worried about some Vatos, Blood, Crips or a possible CarJacker but I am Paranoid because weak ass Jake's that have handed out numerous ridiculously dumb ass tickets to either me or my boys and or family. The Following are some examples..... No Front Plate, 2 weeks Expired tags, No Seat Belt, Tinted Windows a little too dark, Not carrying License but it was in the system and clean, Insurance Card was expired but once again in the system because the DMV has direct ability to check on Car Insurance- yet a ticktet for not having the card, Passing the field sobriety test but the Cop still thinking said person was drunk and subsequently taken into custody and past the blood test, Now WTF does that have to do with Protecting and Serving, this is literally getting out of hand. I grew up in a decent area but the "hood" was right down the street and I can remember learning from a young age not to talk to Police and it hasnt changed. I dont know where putting on that uniform all of a sudden gives these regular ass dudes an I run the world Mentality, being perfectly biased when talking about cops I have never ever met a decent police officer!
True Story: My cousin Jesus moved from SD to Utah to do high school and he told me that one day walking home from school he said two cops pulled over and asked him "where you get the money to buy those shoes(he had the Jordan 11's on), are you selling drugs" my cousin said he didnt say anything and they proceeded to tell him "where talking to you spic dont make us take you to jail for selling drugs" my cousin said that he told them that his brother bought the shoes for him and the cops told him "go back to LA we dont want your types around here and we dont want to see you again in the street or your going to have a problem" My cousin said he went home told his brother and mom and they just told my cousin to drive to school from now on.The crazy thing is my cousin now wants to get into law enforcement which is a whole different story, no way does one good honest dude change ages of cultural corruption and decete by the Jake, anyways I digress. This story is not uncommon; this type of sh!t happens ery'day in every city.I understand Police probably deal with a lot of negative shit on the daily basis but does that justify in acting like a complete ass and treating regular hard-working minorities like animals F0ck no!
I dont like police never have and never will and I know there are probably some honest cops out there getting a bad rap.I think our countries police are given too much authority to do what they morally think is right, but if they think its wrong to be black or hispanic then it isnt anything to them to blast a unarmed black man 50 times . Somewhere along the line as I have gotten older I find it hard to respect a highschool educated cop with full authority to kill if his instincts tell him its ok (let alone that he is probably younger than me) not to mention that dude is scared shitless that something might happen to him everytime he pulls someone over. Now a nervous Cop with a gun is all of a sudden a dangerous man armed. I dont know the right why to rectify this because our society is really fucked up(i.e. killing Liquor store owners, robbing old people, etc.) but I do know that giving out shitty ass tickets doesnt help the public perception of cops. What do ya'll think?
