  1. I am going to start calling the cops on white people and see how they get treated. Anyone up for the challenge.

  2. People call 911 for anything. A woman called 911 once on a ship after the whales swam up to them. You know she saw suspicious activity and the police needed to arrest the whales.

  3. Blacks can pay taxes, serve the country and work everyday and still your seen as black and beneath racist white people.

  4. Wait a minute! How could it be race motivated when the call that came in didn’t mention anything about what race they were? 😂 they weren’t slam against the car like they claimed they were! I think this is a money grab what do you guys think? And for the record I’m usually on the civilian side but in this case I see no wrongdoing as far as what the video and what the dispatcher call showed.

  5. Whites give us a legitimate reason to hate them it's not what y'all do but it's how (some) of y'all go about doing things to make us feel the way we feel I have alot of military homies that agree and feel the same way I do even some of them told me they can't stand their own kind 😂💯👌

  6. 911: 911, how may I help you?
    CALLER: I see 4 extremely large ninjas in bulletproof armor and shiny shields. Something is bout to go down"
    911: Thanks. We're on our way.

  7. Wait, the caller said four people in a Malibu, wearing shields and bullet proof vests and the dispatcher didn't think they were cops in an unmarked vehicle…what a dysfunctional country.

  8. Who gives a fuck what a caller says , before approaching someone over a phone call the officer needs to use common sense callers words can not be taken as gospel. I mean come on!!!when there is a crime and they are asking for tips or leads how many of those tips are what the caller claims ???

  9. the stupidest fake bullshit job you get is a nazi loser cop job same cop job that bring drugs into urban neighborhoods for the fake war on drugs white racist use cops to drop drugs in urban neighborhoods then sent them steriod looking terrorist to ride around urban neighborhoods and terrorize the black community

  10. Bull shit they were pulled over cause they were wearing vests and that's a crime. I would have called too.

  11. I think the police were doing their job, now they want to sue. The caller did not mention their race so they police did not know until they stopped the car.

  12. None of the officers ran the license plates? They were driving a freaking company unmarked unit? WTF is wrong with police officers these days? WOW

  13. Black civilians need to start wearing bullet proof vests in their neighborhoods to protect them from their neighbors and the police!!

  14. Once that tin is showed it should’ve ended it period, Rampart just looking to make a collar because all they get is traffic violations.

  15. When these blacks realise that America doesn't want them. U been brought to America by slavery. U did not come by your choice. It means that you don't have the rights as others who came by choice .in order for you to have that choice you need to free your self by force. Have u asked yourself wy whites keep harassing you make life difficult kill you all times…so you don't think for a second to take arms and fight back…..I ve been researching African race for now 10yrs guess what .they not that smart after all. No wonder why they are the last on this earth….

  16. Worse country in the world. I mean YOUR OWN FELLOW officers. They should be charged for discrimination!

    So grateful to be Canadian.

  17. You're second rate officers. You're not one of them. Wake up black people. You're there just to make it look good. They'll kill you just as fast as they will kill any other black person. Stop being a fool.

  18. 😂😂😂👮🏾‍♂️👮🏾‍♂️👮🏾‍♀️👮🏿‍♀️🔫👮🏼👮🏼👮🏻👮

  19. The 911 caller was most likely a old white lady who pretty much started this whole shitshow. Also these PO s are just tryna get that settlement money. Can you say greedy? Ex. The guy said he was slammed on the car when he wasn't. Also when they say they were assaulted they didn't mean physically they meant they were offended which is why they will lose the case. Greed

  20. Of course these lazy greedy motherfuckers would try to sue the police station even though nothing violent took place. I dont give a fuck they are black they are also parole officers fuck em. They are trying to be the victims by embellishing the situation

  21. Yeah ok if they were cops then they'd be let go which I'm sure they were after the cameras stopped rolling this is a crock of shit and everyone knows it.

  22. A black officer is more likely to shoot blacks than a white officer.

    A black person is 18.5 times more likely to shoot a police officer of any race than vice versa.

  23. Anyone can purchase a shield and play officer!.. that's why I believe undercover agents should always have a officer present at a civilian stop in a marked vehicle…

  24. They were stopped because they were in an unmarked car and were not in uniform. If I was a cop and saw that, then I'd do the same thing. Skin color has nothing to do with it. As a cop if you saw a car full of people with bulletproof vests on, then you're a complete moron.

  25. You know you’re still black right? That uniform doesn’t hide that fact to racist 🐖
