Cops are masterful liars and they lie all day, everyday to Black People. An experienced defense attorney will explain that most police officers will lie under oath in order to protect the fruits of legally questionable arrests or searches or even to uphold a minor traffic ticket. To these officers, a “white” lie to prevent an “injustice”—the judge suppressing the evidence because of his interpretation of some vague constitutional precept—is morally acceptable. And a psychopathic racist cop has no morality where race is a variable. His lie includes fabricating the police report, lying to the prosecutor, lying to the grand jury, and lying to the trial jury. The lies sit easily upon a racist officer because to them there is no innocent Black male, just Black male criminals who have not yet been detected, apprehended or convicted. [MORE] Defense counsel’s cross-examination is part of the game. The officers are not so much lying, they reason, as matching wits against an adversary. [MORE]
From [HERE] Duncan Hicks, a black man, went to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s station last month to file a report but was met with obstinate bureaucracy and eventually threats.
Hicks was attempting to file a report with the department and had done so on multiple occasions without incident. Hicks told CBS Los Angeles this was his third time there and he also called once to file a few custody disputes with his child’s mother. But this time, he says, the white deputy refused to write his report down and then took it a step further.
Hicks was politely trying to explain to the deputy that his report was not stating the problem when the cop lost it.
“This is not explaining the incident, sir,” said Hicks.
“K, Duncan. You know what man? I’m about getting tired of you and you’re about to go to jail just so you know,” barks the deputy, threatening an entirely innocent man.
“What am I going to jail for?” asked Hicks.
Remaining vigilant and unafraid, Hicks stood his ground as he knew the cop had no basis to make such threats.
“You can’t say that. How are you gonna create something? That’s against the law,” Hicks said.
Apparently then the deputy then notices Hicks filming him. “Recording me like that. That’s illegal without my knowledge. You want to go to jail for that too?”
According to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, however, audio and video recording in the station is allowed.
Hicks then fires back noting that he is only filming because an armed man is threatening to kidnap and cage him for no reason. “You have a gun on your hip. I’m doing this for my protection,” he says.
“Uh, uh, you’re not starting that in my lobby,” says the clerk before the video ends.
As CBS Los Angeles reports, Sheriff John McMahon, released a statement that read in part: “Since viewing the video, our employees’ response to the citizen is not consistent with my expectation of customer service. Additionally, the deputy’s responses are not consistent with the interpretation of the law…”
Hicks told the local news that “If that’s his way of protecting and doing his job I would like him to be fired,” and he is right. However, as of Thursday, the officer in the video is still employed.
Imagine for a moment that you made threats to kidnap and cage [a white] person for the sole purpose of being aggravated with them. Imagine that you made these threats while on the job, at your place of work, and the person you threatened — was a customer. Do you think that for one second you would be able to keep that job — not too mention avoid jail for those threats?
However [in a system of injustice], if you are a police officer, you can do so with impunity.
