It would seem that standing around and talking with friends outside of a Chili's in Virginia is worth of having Cops being called.

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/06/watch- ... e-talking/.

The group in question had picked up their to-go orders and were talking when the staff of the restaurant called the police.

But hey, it's all about Civility Right?

just curious does the San Fran area news constantly prod people to call police if they are suspicious or see something suspicious like they do in the Detroit metro area? a big difference in calling the police if you see someone being mugged or beaten or some actual crime committed than peoples comfort issues or feelings of suspicion which are in the eye of the beholder.


I'm not sure about the news, but so-called "see something say something" warnings are everywhere on public transportation.

Black parents question why police were called on them at movie theater in West Philadelphia - Phila. Inquirer

Quote:
Update: Police said Thursday that a radio miscommunication caused numerous officers to respond to a West Philadelphia movie theater on June 22. “As best as we can determine at this time,” the department added, “no 911 call was made by theater staff regarding the incident.”


Uh-huh.

Quote:
The family involved said they assumed a theater manager had called 911, because the manager threatened to do so during a dispute.

About 10 officers responded to the situation. Read more about how police say the situation unfolded here.

Earlier story:

A black family who attended a screening of Jurassic World at a West Philadelphia theater Friday says a manager called police on them following a verbal dispute about being able to retrieve their kids in the theater.

The ensuing response — which drew at least a half-dozen officers — was captured on video and shared on Facebook, where it has been viewed more than 60,000 times.

Ismael Jimenez, the father in the video, said the incident at the Cinemark at 40th and Walnut Streets fits into a broader pattern of white people calling the police on black people for seemingly minor issues.

“A black person’s considered a threat immediately,” said Jimenez, 36, a teacher at Kensington Creative and Performing Arts High School, who lives in North Philadelphia. “So therefore, if they are defiant to you, instead of actually dealing with the issue, you are calling the police.”

See something, say something, is supposed to mean that if you see people involved in obviously illegal or terrorist activities, you call the anonymous tip line. It means that if someone wearing all black with their face covered and pulling a heavy suitcase comes into a subway station, you call the anonymous tip line on your way the hell out of there.

It does not mean that you call the cops on every person of a different race having the temerity to violate your personal boundaries.

Yeah and even that is appropriated from the younger set, who originally coined it as an anti-bullying measure.

Neighbor calls the cops on 12-year old boy mowing neighbor's lawn.

Quote:
A 12-year-old black child had the police called on him simply for mowing the lawn as part of his summer business.

News 5 Cleveland reports that 12-year-old Reginald Fields was mowing the lawn of Lucille Holt, a resident of Maple Heights, Ohio, when suddenly police officers pulled up near where he was working.

The police were on the scene because Holt’s neighbors had called 911 and claimed that Fields had inadvertently cut some of the grass on their property and they wanted the police to come ask him to stop.

“They said I was cutting their grass,” Fields told News 5 Cleveland. “I didn’t know it!”

A Priest at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Charlotte Hall Maryland called the Police after he kicked members of grieving African-American Family out of the church after a mishap with the" Holy" Chalice.

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/watch- ... alls-cops/.

The Washington, D.C. Archdiocese has since issued a apology the family.

The family and parishoners along mourners watched as Fr. Michael Biese blew up after a family member accidently knocked the chalise over.

Throwing the grieving family out of the church and calling the Cops.....no problem here....move along.

Is Gentrification Fueling More 311 Calls & Police Harassment? - Gothamist

Gee. I wonder. :problem:

Quote:
In 2017, Harvard sociology professor Robert Sampson told The Atlantic “There’s some evidence that 311 and 911 calls are increasing in gentrifying areas...that makes for a potentially explosive atmosphere with regard to the police.”

Now, a new Buzzfeed News data analysis of NYC 311 calls between 2015 and 2017 found "a dramatic increase in 311 quality-of-life complaints" in gentrifying blocks in Harlem and Bushwick. "Tracts that gentrified have received more complaints per capita than those that didn’t, according to BuzzFeed News’ analysis of Census and 311 data."

In all the many years that I walked Marin City/Sausalito for various Campaigns, I never had the cops called on me. Doors slammed in my face yes, a few "I'll have to talk with my huband" type encounters and couple of offers for NSA Sex but I never had the Cops called on me.

This is what happens when you have a Racist in the White House.

was Walgreens. making their stores more secure from honest paying customers.

LOCAL Man accuses Walgreens of racial profiling

Quote:
........Dozier said store employees accused him of stealing high-end beauty products while he was in the store. He said minutes later, police searched him. While they didn't find anything, they asked him to leave the store.

"I felt like I was being treated like I did something wrong. And the way they looked at me was if I was a criminal," he said.

According to St. Louis police, investigators did go to that Walgreens for a suspicious person, but no report was ever filed. Police left the store with no one under arrest.

"I’ve never stolen anything in my entire life," he said. "I just simply want to feel comfortable in my own skin."

He hopes — while fighting against what he says was racial profiling — the company will step up to make things right for him and his family...........

A Subway sandwich store employee is being accused of racial profiling after she called 911 and requested police because a black family of seven who stopped to eat were making frequent trips to the bathroom which made her nervous.

<snip>

According to the report, the employee told the 911 operator, “I need somebody to come through here please, ASAP. Now. There’s about eight people in a van, and they’ve been in the store for about an hour. They keep going back and forth to the bathrooms by my back door.”

The Dobson’s related that the responding police officer apologized to the family after speaking with them — and the family was able to go on their way, but not before stating that they feel the employee should be fired.

Was gonna post that here yesterday, as I recall I didnt because I didnt have the energy and time, there are too many.

There is no end to white supremacy acting out all over the country due to Rump and Putin being in charge. Putin hates Black folk and he is the president the way Cheney was.

A Saskatchewan First Nations man says he feels he and his son were racially profiled when they ended up being detained by RCMP on suspicion of breaking and entering because they stopped on a rural road for a bathroom break.

"​It's a very different landscape now for Indigenous people in rural areas," said Seraine Sunkawaste, who is Dakota/Cree.

"I want everyone to feel safe. I was just scared for my son."

Sunkawaste and his 17-year-old son Alexi, who has Down syndrome, were driving to Regina July 1 after a trip to their home community of White Bear First Nation.

He said halfway to their destination, Alexi said he need to use the washroom. Sunkawaste was hesitant to stop at first, thinking about the death of Colten Boushie.

<snip>

​But with his son's urgency to use the washroom, he said he had to stop, and said this was something the pair had done many times before.

Concerned for his son's safety on the shoulder of Highway 33, Sunkawaste pulled onto an adjacent grid road and stopped.

He said he relieved himself near the rear of his car while Alexi went further away from the road, into the ditch, for privacy.

"He did his duties and was standing about 15 feet away from this quonset [a kind of steel barn], in the ditch," said Sunkawaste.

He said he yelled out to his son to come back and Alexi hurried back to the car.

"I was stressing to him 'You cannot go on farm property.'"

The two then got back into their vehicle and got back on to the highway.

<snip>

But within a few minutes, an RCMP patrol car pulled them over.

He said the RCMP officer approached the vehicle and asked for his licence and registration. Then the officer told him he would need to exit the vehicle, and that he was being detained for suspicion of a break and enter.

"I was like, 'What? Break and enter?" said Sunkawaste.

"I was trying to make sense of what is going on."

Alexi attempted to get out of the vehicle when the RCMP officer was handcuffing Sunkawaste.

Concerned that his son was frightened, Sunkawaste said he asked that Alexi be allowed to stay with him, explaining that he was special needs. Father and son were both placed in the back of the police cruiser.

Sunkawaste said a second RCMP cruiser arrived within minutes.

He kept asking questions about what was going on and the officer told him his vehicle and his son matched the description given by a property owner about a break and enter.

<snip>

Cpl. Rob King, media relations officer for F Division, said the Fillmore RCMP detachment received a call at about 6 p.m. July 1 about a possible break and enter on a farm in the area.

The complainant stated she witnessed someone running from a building on her property to a car parked on the road at the end of her driveway.

King said a member of the Fillmore RCMP who was in the area caught up with the vehicle and detained the driver.

The farm owner then contacted the detachment and informed them there was no break-in and nothing was missing from her property.
