Response to Major Nikon (Reply #22)

Mon Mar 26, 2012, 07:51 AM

24. Where did he get the idea that being a cop meant that he was obligated to police young black males?

It's a rhetorical question, of course. I'm not asking that you answer it.

But, he was clearly demonstrating what he thought his duty would be in his adoption of wannabe copness.

He felt that his wannabe copness allowed him the authority to question anyone he deemed suspicion, even in the absence of probable cause.

He understood as little as possible about the proper role of law enforcement as a wannabe and even less about the rights of others.

His own fear was his badge, his gun was his clout and that made him a very dangerous predator on that rainy night when he shot and killed an innocent young man.
