When I saw Officer Mccurry #5781 walking towards me, I instinctively pulled out my camera phone.
Then when Officer Mccurry #5781 walked past me, I began recording. After he began to walk towards the way he came, I filmed him from behind and he can be seen turning around facing me several times, while Officer Pimienta # 6201 comes from the opposite side and parked on the street facing traffic on a busy intersection, when he accosted me, grabbed my phone from me, twisted my arms behind my back and hand cuffed me. Then the illegal interrogation and detention began. Shortly Officer Jordon #5818 whom seemed to be in charge arrived, and then Officer Hobbs # 4672.
And of-course they did their AWPSP (Award winning protect and serve performance). For those that do not know what AWPSP is; please allow me to explain. AWPSP is when an Officer detains a person of color on the street, for any reason; then the performance begins. Depending on how many hours they have left on the clock; they will detain us for some times hours, just for all the community to see, to reinforce stereotypes, racism, and pretend they are actually here to protect “US” from people of color, then if you’re fortunate you’re released with certainty, that they are not here to protect and serve us. Only to be frowned upon by those that are actually being protected and served; later to be disbelieved by those that are being protected and served, because they can’t fathom the aforementioned.
As evidence by: while I was assessing them, even though both my hands were twisted, shackled, and hand cuffed behind my back; they were still afraid of my pigment, even though it was four of them, I was sitting down legs crossed, and hand cuffed; they were still scared and uneasy! So I kindly replied “Here is something to ease your mind”; I then turned to the side and pulled out my California Registered Nursing Licensed from my hip clip, and handed it to him which Identifies me as a “PEACE OFFICER”.
Then the Officer in charge Jordon #5818 replies “No that does not ease my mind!” and I’m heard replying in shock ” WOW REALLY? I am sorry to hear that”.
Now, I have been a Medical professional for over ten years (all my adult life) and have been trying to prove every stereotype incorrect and for him to tell me “No that does not ease my mind!” was an insult. Does that mean whether I am a Doctor or gangster their minds will never be at ease?
Does that mean history will have to repeat it self? Shall we have another Riot like the riots in LA?, after the Rodney King Beating? Or will justice prevail for Malik King? I am praying for the latter, may peace be upon you all; and always all praises due to the creator, the most gracious the most merciful…
