Racial Profiling Cases: Uber Driver Survives Raging NYPD Detective

Racial Profiling Cases

Tracial profiling stories and cases unarmed black man shot by policehe recent motor vehicle stop by a New York Police detective assigned to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force was once again caught on an amateur video cam and has gone viral. The detective launches an all out verbal assault on the Uber driver who appears to be of Arab or East Asian decent.

The number one complaint that citizens file against police officers in most racial profiling cases,  is for verbal abuse. In most cases, the incident occurred during the course of a motor vehicle stop. Often, the citizen reports that he was pulled over “for no reason,” and the officer began to yell at him “for no reason” and then began to harass and insult him “for no reason.” The irony is that most of these complaints are filed after a citizen has been arrested during that motor vehicle stop. And, when the Internal Affairs Division begins to investigate the case, the investigator finds that, in most cases, the citizen became loud and rowdy with the officer, which led to the officer arresting the citizen for disorderly conduct or interfering with a police investigation.

Law enforcement officers should take note of the information listed below that holds them to specific standards of conduct when performing “routine motor vehicle stops.”

Taken from State Infraction Ticket Book:


At all times be COURTEOUS, FAIR, and HONEST. Remember the public opinion of law enforcement is judged almost entirely by your (the officer’s) conduct.

In issuing a complaint (ticket).

  1. Introduce yourself to the accused by saying: “I am (give your rank, name and the enforcement agency you represent).
  2. Ask for the driver’s license and registration certificate or other identification.
  3. Advise the accused of the offense committed.
  4. Advise the accused that you are going to issue a complaint (ticket) for the offense(s).
  5. Ask for any additional information necessary to fill out the complaint.
  6. Fill out the complaint, have the accused sign the original and give the accused the proper copy along with an envelope. If the accused refuses to sign the original, print “REFUSED” on the signature line.DO NOT– Quiz the accused on knowledge of the law.
  7. DO NOT– Indulge in personal remarks or altercations.
  8. DO NOT– Lecture the accused.

Schedule answer date for the second Friday after the date of the offense, even if such Friday is a holiday (may vary State to State).
