    Looks like a black officer in the rear view, so how is it racial? Did he really tweet what was really going on? Maybe he was speeding and he pulled the ‘do you know who I am’ card on them or the ‘I know your boss’ card. C’mon.

    Still happening in 2012!  So much for our ‘post-racial society’.  I am a Black man who has been pulled over not for a traffic infraction, but so that the officer could check the license and registration on my new vehicle.  No citation was issued.  I have been stopped walking down the street in a shirt and tie because I “resembled a robbery suspect”.  And if you dare question the authority you just might get an azz-whipping and be arrested for ‘resisting arrest’.
