Police pepper spray black teen because he couldn't possibly be part of white family
 
by  I give in to sin

Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina

Foster parents Ricky and Stacy Tyler left the side entrance door unlocked for 18 year old DeShawn Currie, on Monday afternoon - aware DeShawn was coming home early that day to an empty house. A neighbor spotted the teen entering the home and called 911 to report a break in. Three officers responded in pavlovian fashion, handling the teen as a suspect rather than putting aside racial bias and giving the black kid the benefit of the doubt. After ordering DeShawn to put his hands on the door,

said DeShawn. "I was like, 'For what? This is my house.' I was like, 'Why are y'all in here?'"
the cops pointed to photos of the Tyler's three white children and decided he didn't belong there.
DeShawn, justly upset, objected to being treated like a criminal in his own home. Of course, in Copworld, that translates to being threatening and belligerent so that's a pepper spraying to the face. Stacy Tyler arrived home to find E.M.S workers tending to DeShawn. Cops didn't pepper spray her.

"My 5-year-old last night, she looked at me and said, 'Mama I don't understand why they hated our brother, and they had to come in and hurt him.'"

In addition to DeShawn still being alive, the best part of this story is being reminded that yes, wonderful people still exist.

"He's my baby boy just as much as my other three children are," said Stacy.

But, uh, naturally, this is just an "isolated incident", of course. I mean, if this had been a BLACK neighborhood and a BLACK person called 911 that a WHITE prowler was seen....(You get the idea... ;D  ;)), I am CERTAIN the police would have pepper sprayed the WHITE kid after seeing pictures of BLACK kids on the wall...  


Racism? What racism? Quit tryin' to play the racist card! Gott mit uns! 



Whoops, wrong picture.  :-[ But the past is sometimes prologue. Have a nice day, GOOD GERMANS!
Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps. 97:11
