SO NOW COPS ARE A TAXI SERVICE TO MORONS?

The police chief needs firing for just saying it.

And , of course, the nigger yells, “RAY-CISSSSS!!!!”

A misdemeanor charge has been dropped against a Black man who was arrested last week for walking home on a street during a snowstorm in Texas.

Rodney Reese, 18, was arrested Feb. 16 in Plano and charged with being a pedestrian in the roadway, news outlets reported.

Police said officers received a call about a Black man seen stumbling along in the middle of the snowy street wearing a short-sleeved shirt and were sent to perform a wellness check.

Police released body camera footage of the encounter on Facebook on Friday. In the video, police are seen following Reese and repeatedly asking him where he is going and if he was OK, to which he replies that he is fine and he is on his way home.

Reese told KDFW-TV that he was walking home from his job at a Walmart and didn’t stop for the officers because he didn’t need their help.

Officers continued to follow Reese for about two minutes before stopping him, telling him they were “doing an investigation” and informing him that he was being detained.

Reese replied “no” and continued walking, but was stopped again. In the video, a brief scuffle is seen as officers attempted to handcuff Reese, who can be heard asking to be released.

According to the Facebook post, the arresting officer noted that Reese resisted arrest but chose not to charge him.

Plano Police Chief Ed Drain told KDFW-TV that the charge was dropped against Reese because the arrest wasn’t consistent with why officers were called to investigate.

“They should’ve taken him home, is where he should’ve gone,” Drain said.

Drain backed his officers, stating that at the time of the arrest they didn’t know Reese’s age, where he worked or where he lived.

Drain also said he doesn’t believe race was a factor in the arrest, but added that he “can’t get inside people’s heads.”

Reese said, however, that he believes the call that brought officers to the scene and his subsequent arrest were based on the color of his skin.

    The cops asked him if he was OK and the guy replies he’s fine and on his way home. Shouldn’t have that been the end of the conversation and encounter? The only other thing the cops could have done is ask the guy if he needed a ride home. I know cops who if they see people walking in bad weather will ask them if they would like a ride home.

    When i was on the job back in the 1960s I was young and a hard charger. Going on patrol with an old timer “Sandy” I learned some valuable lessons. One was if there was no crime reported and the individual on the road wasn’t doing anything illegal or asking for assistance just keep on truckin’, Sandy’s immortal words: “A bucket of shit don’t stink if you don’t stir it” still echo through my mind.

    Problem today is that if you drive by some fucker will take down the car number and file a complaint saying you abandoned him….and then demand 1,000,000 dollars.
