Why would you lie, and accuse on officer, who was very cordial, and polite of racism? Especially since he did not even write you a ticket? I mean why would anyone do such a vile thing? Oh, wait, you are a big shot with the perpetually aggrieved NAACP? I understand now. Race pimps gonna race pimp!
You have seen the video, you KNOW what happened, now compare the facts to the narrative!
Moultrie’s post said, “Tonight, I was racially profiled by Timmonsville Officer CAUSE I WAS DRIVING A MERCEDES BENZ AND GOING HOME IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD.”
Moultrie recounted his conversation with the officer in the post.
He said the officer asked him if there were any drugs inside his car.
Moultrie said in that post the officer told him, “I am doing you a favor tonight not taking you to jail or writing you a ticket.”
Florence community activist Timothy Waters said when he saw Moultrie’s Facebook post, it made him very upset that a black person could be racially profiled for driving a nice car in a nice neighborhood.
Waters said he went to the Timmonsville Police Department to take a look at a copy of the officer’s dash and body cam video.
He added when he saw the video, he became even more upset, but not at the officer, rather at Moultrie.
Waters said the body cam video totally contradicts what Moultrie posted on Facebook.
He said the officer was very pleasant and kind to Moultrie during the entire four-minute traffic stop.
“Once I got a copy of that body cam, it’s as if he made the whole story up. And I felt like he set us back 100 years, because think about all of the racial profiling cases (that) are true,” said Waters.
Timmonsville Police Chief Billy Brown said Moultrie contacted him the morning after the traffic stop with claims that Moultrie had been racially profiled and mistreated by the officer.
“He made a comment that the officer accused him of having drugs in the car. He said that his wife and grandchild was in the car. He asked them not to move because the officer looked as if he might shoot them or something. He also made mention that the officer continued to ask him about his neighborhood. Why was he in that neighborhood? And threaten(ed) to put him in jail in reference to something dealing with the registration to the vehicle,” said Brown.
Brown said he investigated, reviewed the body cam video and determined there was nothing to Moultrie’s claims.
“When I saw the video, I was shocked that someone who is supposed to be a community leader, a pastor, and head of the NAACP would just come out and tell a blatant lie. It bothered me. It really bothered me, thinking about the racial unrest it could’ve cost in the community and it’s just troubling to me that someone who held a position like that would come out and just tell a lie.”
What a dirtbag! Is he just seeking publicity? Maybe he thinks he has some sort of, dare I say privilege that allows him to lie without fear of being exposed? If so he is not alone
Again, you saw what happened, YET this is what this race pimp said
