I personally think it’s sad that a situation like this even happened. In my opinion, whether a celebrity or an average person, it shouldn’t have turn hostile so quickly. Director/Actor Tyler Perry took to Facebook to share his story about a run in with the Atlanta police department only days ago.
A few days before President Obama was supposed to speak at my studio, I was leaving the studio, headed to the airport. Most times when I leave the studio I have an unmarked escort. Other times I constantly check in my rearview mirror to be sure that I’m not being followed. It’s a safety precaution that my security team taught me. As I got to an intersection, I made a left turn from the right lane and was pulled over by two police officers. I pulled the car over and put it in park. Then, I let the window down and sat in the car waiting for the officer. The officer came up to the driver’s door and said that I made an illegal turn. I said, “I signaled to get into the turning lane, then made the turn because I have to be sure I’m not being followed.” He said, “why do you think someone would be following you?”
In a day and age where racial profiling seems to be exposed more and more to the general public everyday, this story could have ended differently. Read the rest of the story and Tyler’s opinion on racial profiling, when you continue…
