|Michael Bennett was roused by the Las Vegas Metro Police.|
The police don't care who you are. Whether you're a NFL star or a person of color, some cops see you as a threat to the public. Of course, Seattle Seahawks tight end Michael Bennett learned that out the hard way when he was forcibly detained.
Reminder to those who read our blog.
WHEN COPS SEE A BLACK MAN WITH A FIREARM REGARDLESS OF IT BEING LEGAL OR ILLEGAL, THEY AUTOMATICALLY SHOOT THE BLACK MAN. EVEN AN UNARMED BLACK MAN JUST REACHING FOR A WALLET OR A DOOR HANDLE COULD BE KILLED BY THE COPS.
THE POLICE AND JUNK FOOD MEDIA TRY TO MAKE THE VICTIM, "THE BAD GUY" BY BRINGING UP HIS PAST HISTORY, HIS SOCIAL MEDIA OR HIS FAMILY LIFE.
MANY WHITES (IN LARGE GROUPS) HAVE FIREARMS IN FRONT OF POLICE AND THEY NEVER GET SHOT OR KILLED. WHY AREN'T THEY AFRAID OF THEM?
WHENEVER SOMEONE COMPLAINS ABOUT LACK OF BLACK FATHERS, I CONTINUE TO DENOUNCE THIS BULLSHIT. I REMIND THEM THAT THE POLICE KILL BLACK FATHERS. THE POLICE LEAVE CHILDREN OF COLOR WITHOUT A BLACK FATHER. AND NO AMOUNT OF MONEY COULD BRING THE PEACE AND TRANQUILITY TO THE FAMILIES OF THOSE KILLED BY THE COPS.
FOR EVERY BAD COP, THERE WILL BE A DEAD COP!
I DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING ON THE INTERNET OR THE COP'S VERSION.
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE NUMBER ONE THREAT IN THE UNITED STATES.
DONALD J. TRUMP, REPUBLICANS AND DEMOCRATS ARE INEPT. THEY ARE NUMB TO GUN VIOLENCE. THEY CONTINUE TO ALLOW FIREARMS IN THE HANDS OF TERRORISTS AND BAD COPS.
EXPECT MORE COPS SHOOTING UNARMED OR LEGALLY ARMED PEOPLE OF COLOR.
EXPECT BAD COPS TO GET SLAPPPED ON THE WRIST WHEN THEY COMMIT CRIMINAL ACTS. BAD COPS USE EXCESSIVE FORCE ON DETAINED SUSPECTS. BAD COPS ARE DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE. BAD COPS HAVE USED DRUGS. BAD COPS ARE DRUG DEALERS. BAD COPS ARE SOLICITING FOR PROSTITUTES OR SHARING IMAGES OF CRIMINALS ON SOCIAL MEDIA. BAD COPS ARE PLANTING DRUGS AND GUNS ON INNOCENT INDIVIDUALS. BAD COPS ARE SPEEDING ON OUR LOCAL ROADS AND RUNNING TRAFFIC LIGHTS. SOME BAD COPS OPENLY ADDRESS ISSUES ON SOCIAL MEDIA WHICH COULD BE SEEN AS A BIAS TO PEOPLE OF COLOR OR CRIME VICTIMS.
BAD COPS BELIEVE THEY'RE ABOVE THE LAW.
EXPECT COPS TO WALK WHEN THEY CLAIM THEY USED DEADLY FORCE BECAUSE THEY FEARED FOR THEIR LIVES.
EXPECT MORE MASS SHOOTINGS.
EXPECT GOOD COPS TO BE KILLED BY TERRORISTS.
POLICE DEPARTMENTS CONTINUE TO ALLOW BAD COPS AND CORRUPT POLICE UNIONS REIGN STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM UPON PEOPLE OF COLOR.
POLICE KILLING PEOPLE OF COLOR IS STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM.
BEING A COP IS A THANKLESS JOB. THEY CONTINUE TO SERVE AND PROTECT THE PUBLIC IN AN EXTREMELY DANGEROUS JOB.
WE DON'T CONDONE VIOLENCE AGAINST LAW ENFORCEMENT OR ANY HUMAN BEING.
After the boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor ended, Bennett and his crew went to a local bar on the strip. There were reports of gunfire in the area and the law went to investigate it.
Bennett recounted he was detained and threatened by one of the cops. He said that the cop was using excessive force and threatened to kill him.
He believed race played a role in this encounter.
The cop who wasn't named didn't use his body camera and the filming is being done by witnesses and cameras in the area. He was detained for 10 minutes before he was allowed to be free.
He shared this experience Wednesday and it went viral.
Now the Metro Police are doing damage control. The undersheriff for the department said that race didn't contribute to the detainment.
The corrupt police unions across the country are trying to make the case against Bennett and others who accuse police departments of racism and corruption. Most police unions are doing their best to make the case against Black Lives Matter.
Steve Grammas the union leader representing the Las Vegas Metro Police said that Roger Goddell should look into the actions caused by Michael Bennett.
On behalf of the rank and file members of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, I request that you conduct an investigation, and take appropriate action, into Michael Bennett's obvious false allegations against our officers.While the NFL may condone Bennett's disrespect for our American flag, and everything it symbolizes, we hope the League will not ignore Bennett's false accusations against our police officers.
As you may know, Michael Bennett posted a Twitter message regarding his interaction with our officers. Bennett wrote, "Las Vegas police officers singled me out and pointed their guns at me for doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time." Bennett's message included additional comments, which we believe are false and defamatory.
We believe that a fair investigation will establish that our officers responded to one of the most dangerous calls a law enforcement officer can be assigned - an active shooter firing rounds in a crowded casino. As our uniformed officers entered the casino, they observed Bennett hiding behind a slot machine. When officers turned towards Bennett, he bolted out of the casino, leaped over a four foot barrier wall, and hid from officers as he crouched close to the wall on the sidewalk.
I am sure that your attorney will tell you, our officers had resasonable suspicion, which is the constitutional standard, to detain Bennett until they could determine whether he was involved in the shooting. Our officers, who are both minorities, had the legal right, and obligation, to detain Bennett based upon the nature of the call and Bennett's unusual and suspicious actions. Our officers did not detain Bennett because he was, "a Black man in the wrong place at the wrong time."
Michael Bennett's claim that our officers are racists is false and offensive to the men and women of law enforcement. We hope you will take appropriate action against Michael Bennett. I am available to meet with you and will provide any other information you deem necessary.
Michael's brother Green Bay Packers tight end Martellus Bennett is not taking this one sitting down. He along with many of Michael's fellow Seahawk teammates joined in unison to denounce the union president's letter.
Roger Goodell also offered support for Michael.
Colin Kaepernick also came out in support of Michael Bennett as well.
This is a real issue and many professional stars are speaking out against police brutality.
