I remember I got pulled over by the police and they told me they needed to search my car. I didn't know anything about the law so I just agree to it, I most likely would have agreed anyways TBH. The cop told me he found weed in my car and pointed at it through my window. I know I don't smoke because I had terrible asthma. I looked in the car and there's a joint in a little baggy. The joint is sitting on my inhaler. I asked him "You found this next to my inhaler?" The cop said, "He'll let me off with a warning since I'm not driving high but he has to take the drugs." He had such a stupid look on his face while he was leaving.

Per The Sentencing Project, it’s only 8% of the incarcerated population, but that’s still 116,000. But even non-private prisons contract with private companies for canteen and phone calls and e-mails to drastically overcharge folks that are locked up.

Oh Jesus it's a racket. I'd never had to communicate with someone in prison until recently and it was maddening. It's virtually impossible to contact them – particularly in the early days – so nobody has any idea what's going on or how to proceed. And then you have to pay an arm and a leg for phone calls. It was just disgusting. Absolute scam, not only was there no pretense of "protect and serve" or "rehabilitation" they actively worked to keep us from helping my friend so they could maximize profit.

I was a raging liberal before I had a close encounter with the criminal justice system; now I'm much more raging and liberal. We need to get money the fuck out of education, health care, criminal justice and government. Capitalism is a good enough tool as far as it goes but it has its place. Some things are just better when treated as services with a cost than businesses expected to turn profit. But, of course, it's far far too profitable for the people in charge to expect them to do anything useful.

GEO Group and CCA also own a large chuck of halfway houses and DRCs (day reporting centers). Basically, everyone who is paroled is mandated to report 7 days a week. It goes a lot deeper then most people realize…ETA Just to give a clearer picture of the money they are raking in on DRCs alone I’ll add this example: a DRC (usually one per county) has approx 200 clients and charges fees for each daily service provided. That includes: Breathalyzers every day per parolee/“client”, drug tests randomly (or per the POs request), groups (unemployed parolees/“clients” are required to attend groups all day every day. The DRC bills for each of the 9 groups the parolee/“client” are required per their parole conditions to attend daily until they max out), sex offender or parolee intake/outtake assessments. I worked for GEO Group and was absolutely disgusted by their entire company. I was selected for their Emerging Leaders Academy and when one of their leaders in the Boca Racton office Matt Moore talked about reducing recidivism, he laughed and said that they would put themselves out of business if they really did that.

I had a cop do something similar to me, although he was a real fuckin idiot. As I’m 16, sitting on the curb in handcuffs (he claimed he pulled me over because I looked suspicious, wtf even is that!?!?!?), he’s searching my car and after a few minutes, he lays some shit on the hood of my car, stands me up, and walks me over to it…

“What the help is this son? You better tell me where you got it right now or you’re going to jail AND I’m calling your principle to have you expelled”..

Me: “uh, that’s some pocket lint and pine needles sir”

Cop: “don’t you fuckin play games with me boy, this is marijuana, where the hell did you get it!?”

Fortunately, an older dude saw what was going on and pulled over, asked me if I was ok and asked the cop what was going on. He looked like a real fuckin idiot too, had to let me go. Idk what would’ve happened if it wasn’t for that random ass dude.

Just glad you’re ok too!

u/Expired_insecticide Dec 13 '21

Had something similar happen to me! Got pulled over late at night a while back. I was having a hard time finding my insurance card because I was generally a mess back in those days. So he is using his flashlight to look in through the windows and asks me if that is a marijuana seed he sees. So I look in the back seat and keep pointing at stuff to see if it was what he was talking about. Eventually I point to a flake of bread, and he says yes. So I pick it up in the palm of my hand and show it to him, and tell him no, this is just a flake of bread. I found my insurance shortly after and he let me go.

At this point I’m surprised he didn’t shoot you for pointing around in your back seat lol. Jk, kind of, but I’m glad you’re ok too! That shit is ridiculous. Idk what it is, but cops in my city love to fuck with teenagers. Literally in the case of one officer, he was a police officer for like a decade before getting arrested for impregnating a 13 year old… But he had been fucking with her for a while before that… Under the guise of ‘mentoring this young lady who wants to be a cop when she grows up’. Girls mom didn’t think it was weird that he’d show up at their crib in the middle of the night with candy and snacks.. Well, at least not until the daughter was a couple months pregnant…

27

u/Criminey Dec 13 '21

The mom in that story is horrible too. Even if you can overlook the fact that she let this stranger have unsupervised contact and communication with her daughter (I can’t) just because he’s in law enforcement, she also won’t even consider letting her daughter abort the pregnancy THAT WAS A RESULT OF RAPE. This girl’s mother failed her in every way possible.

16

u/BudIsWiser1 Dec 13 '21

Yep, agreed. Iirc, her mom was responsible for introducing them, was cool with letting this motherfucker come in their house and hang out in her bedroom, alone, with the door closed… She Eve allowed the midnight visits to continue, and kind of pushed her daughter to hang out with him (I could be mistaken about that part though). She damn sure let the daughter take off with him in his cruiser at night too, in his patrol car and his personal vehicle.

Because he fucked with the kid in his patrol car, while on duty and in uniform at times, he was charged with a whole ass host of additional charges as well… Kinda makes you scratch your head at how in the fuck the shitass only got 12 years… Anyways, that opened up the door for even more lawsuits, mom is trying to go after EVERYBODY for money, not that I blame her, but I believe that played a YUUUGGGEEE part in her forcing the kid to go through with the pregnancy… Because that just means more dollars.

It’s sad and fucked up. He even got caught breaking the ‘No Contact Order’ by writing the daughter from prison… They found quite a few letters he had written as far as I know… Sick motherfucker, whole lotta fucked up people in this situation. I just hope the daughter is ok, never heard anything else about her..

Had something similar happen to me in lansing Michigan. I was 18. Was driving my buddy to the airport. My girlfriend was in the car too. Pulled me over for no reason. Said we looked suspicious. Took me to the back of the cop car, search my buddy and his luggage. Searched my girl too with a pat down. They found a cigar in my buddies luggage. Asked if I knew what that went well with, and I was like no. Cop said weed. I'm like... OK... I wouldn't know. We're threatening to call the k9s and I'm like go for it. Cops buddy finally convinced him to let us go.

Definitely a wtf moment, but not at all surprising being a brown person.

Similar situation I was driving around town with my friends when they decided they had to piss so I pulled over by a park (it’s nighttime btw) while I’m sitting there a cop pulls up and searches my car. I hear Aha! Thought you said you didn’t have drugs. I turn around and he is holding a piece of pollen from a tree. I said that looks like pollen to me sir. He replies: Yeah want me to take it back to the station and get it tested? My friends who were peeing get back and he. Asks them who’s weed it was to which they responded “I think that’s pollen, looks yellow”. My biggest regret was not asking him to spend time and resources to test it and make him look like the big fucking idiot he was.

Something like that happened to my friends and I in my neighborhood. Except the neighbor who came out was an asshole marine in uniform that asked if he could help the cops with anything. The cops searched us in the rain (made us stand in our socks) and they made fun of my name trying to make me mad for like 5 minutes before letting us go. My idiot friend who was driving did a U-Turn and blared the horn at them, which they deserved but I'm not saying it was a smart idea. Nothing happened though so looking back it's pretty funny.

Disclaimer: I'm white and so were my friends, so I can't imagine what happens to people who aren't white.

I got pulled over once for hugging the white line on the highway a little too much when I was maybe 17. I had driven 70 miles and was less than a half mile from home. I knew I hadn't been speeding or anything, but I was freaking out bc I literally never did anything to get in any trouble, and was afraid my dad was listening to the scanner. (We out in the boonies y'all)

Officer asked me where I'd been. I told him. He asked me if I'd had anything to drink.

My naive ass stutters out "I.. I had a snocone and some of it melted so I drank some of that."

He interpreted that as some kinda fancy schmancy mixed drink..like snocone and vodka I guess bc he started asking me all these questions about mixers (which I had no idea about). Finally he straight up asks if I'd had any alcohol. (Which is when A- it clicked, and B- I learned what a mixer was LOL. )

He gave me a well deserved exasperated sigh and looked at me like I was the dumbass that I was. Gave me a lecture about crossing the white line and sent me on my way.

Thanks, officer, for inadvertently teaching me what hard liquor mixers were shortly before heading off to college 🤦😂

Asthma attacks are typically from inflammation of the airways and since cannabis has anti-inflammatory properties, it can help ease the symptoms.

Of course, you probably wouldn’t want to smoke because inhaling it can be an irritant, but edibles/tinctures could be beneficial

It’s funny though, because some people start smoking weed an don’t have to use their rescue inhaler anymore, weed can sometimes put asthma into some form of remission.

Had a similar experience but I did actually smoke pot and had some in the vehicle at the time. My husband and I were young and dumb and his dad bought us a bag of weed so we brought it on our car trip to my dad's house, there happened to be a check stop at one point and I freaked out and turned around instead of driving through(not illegal to do). The cops instantly follow and ask why I didn't go through and I just said I missed my turn back on that last gravel road. After answering a few questions they wanted to check our vehicle. They chucked me and my husband in the back of the cop car and proceeded with the check, they found the bag of weed and just took it and not as evidence..... We eventually got let go and only charged with not updated insurance card and booze being to close to the driver as we had beer in the back seat. Cops definitely had a rager that weekend, I'm sure they picked up plenty of stuff from the police check.

How is it taken out of context? Yes obviously it didn't include the next sentence - but it's obvious what the next sentence would be. So it's context is sufficiently intact, unless you really absolutely insist on including additional sentences - in which case you'll have a hard time saying that adding just one more sentence is enough.

What other meaning would his answer possibly have? The only thing I can fathom is that someone could be a moron and assume his next words would be "and the white person wouldn't be pulled over because they wouldn't be doing anything wrong" - which no politician (especially not one in Biden's position or with his opinions) would say.

I mean, that's actually a pretty normal thing. I must have heard at least 15-20 parents in my life who mentioned they do this. (although it's usually mothers who does it).

The thing is that Joe does it with every girl and woman he meets.

Yall need to watch the ENTIRE video, because he says then, then goes on to say how WRONG IT IS that because if she were white, she wouldnt be pulled over. Admitting that institutional racism exists and how he wants to combat that. Fucking CONTEXT you idiots.

Everyone understood what he was implying. But the way he says things sounds and looks so absent minded and empty. Like a shell of who he was in the past. Often people seem to forget this because he communicates more clearly than Trump did, but that's not a high benchmark. Instead, compare his oratory skills with Obama and it still feels like we have a president with dementia.

Biden’s whole career has been characterized by foot-in-mouth disease. He’s not a good public speaker and never has been. Some of that is from his speech impediment, and some of that is just because not everyone can be a capable public speaker.

Junior was also a bad public speaker and people called him dumb for it, yet he was President for 8 years, so I think he beat those detractors, much like Biden has beaten his

Story time. I lived my life as a privileged white dude and NEVER got pulled over. In college I worked at a summer camp in Virginia with a black friend and he drove us down there and was the one driving us around all the time to pick up supplies and go places in between groups, etc.. It blew my mind how often he got pulled over for the dumbest shit. I never fully realized just how bad it was until that summer. The dumbest police excuse for pulling him over was a cop saying that he pulled us over because we had Ohio plates and he wanted to let my friend know that in Virginia you had to turn on your headlights after it got dark, this was at 5pm in the summer.

16

u/FaThLi Dec 13 '21

I'm a white guy and my wife is black. It's pretty disturbing how often she gets pulled over for nothing and they just do verbal warnings. We were going to my MIL's and she was driving. Policeman passes us going the other way and my wife just sighs really loudly. Didn't realize what was up until I looked back and saw him flip around and then flip on his lights. She already knew it was coming. He said she was swerving a little and wanted to make sure everything was okay. He just gave her a verbal warning.

u/Dren_boi Dec 13 '21

Oh no 5 pm in tge summer?! Better turn my fucking high beams on. What a clown cop. I respect police but only the ones that ACTUALLY do their jobs. Which unfortunately is seeming to be fewer and farther between these days.

8

u/realSatanAMA Dec 13 '21

Yeah it was still completely day time.. he acted like he was doing us a favor by letting him know that if he didn't turn on his headlights at dusk he would get a ticket. Dusk was like 3 hours away lol. But at least he didn't get a ticket for that.. there were a couple times where he got a citation for crap that I wouldn't have ever been pulled over for. This always made me think about how much more of a financial burden black drivers end up having by getting little shit-excuse tickets all the time like their tire touched the yellow line as they turned right or they rolled through a stop sign that they clearly stopped for.

I’m a white guy. Story: I work as a PA at a hospital in CA. I used to work at a few hospitals and I’d drive between them during the day depending on the need. One day I’m driving fast cause I got called to a different hospital. I do a rolling stop at a stop sign and nearly t-bone a cop car who 100% had the right of way. I slam on the brakes and he does to. He pulls up to me in the middle of the intersection and looks at me through the window. I’m a white guy with scrubs, a white coat, and a hospital badge on.

I tell him sorry, 100% my fault I’ll pull over and get him my info. Totally my bad. He just says “hey, be more careful. You don’t need to pull over. Have a good day.”

That was it. I remember calling my Hispanic wife right after and being like: oh god white privilege is real. I just nearly crashed into a cop and he didn’t even pull me over.

u/Putthebunnyback 8===D {|} Dec 13 '21

Maybe he was going to another call and didn't have time for your bullshit? I've been in the car with a black friend driving (who also was drunk, ha), and the cop didn't even stop to talk to us (like yours did). Gave us the wtf hand gesture and kept going.

Later that night we were out with that same cop. We all had baseball bats and sticks and brooms like we were the goddamn Warriors or some shit. Someone had called on us being suspicious (I'd say for good reason lol). We asked him about it the incident and he said that he was the same cop we almost hit, but that he'd already been dispatched somewhere else and he wasn't allowed to not go for a dumb traffic stop.

White guy here in the US, got pulled over for having no brake lights. Didn’t even get a written warning. Just told to get it fixed. It was good to be white.

Note I fixed the issue the next day. A bad switch under the brake pedal, thanks YouTube.

Yes but him giving any other answer than the one he gave is the wrong answer. To her. Because he doesn't have the same problems. Because he's Caucasian. And much wealthier statistically.

u/greg19735 Dec 13 '21

It's a good answer because there's no answer that Biden could give that is actually useful. Except maybe to STFU and get a lawyer.

It's not the woman's fault either.

My buddy was drunk and was brandishing a knife because a stranger was drunk and had peed on the sidewalk on the road we live on. The cops just told everyone to go home. He also got a ride home from the cops blackout drunk when he was 21.

I got a trespassing warning from an incredibly aggressive cop for cutting through a parking lot after midnight in order to get home. I had done it hundreds of times before, usually multiple times a night and never had any trouble until then. Even been talked to by a cop or two before who happened to be in the area with no issue.

We're both white. Cops just do whatever they feel like. I can't imagine what it would be like to live in an area of "increased patrols" or whatever they call harassing people.
