For whom the bell tolls. A fugitive from the law of averages. I guess he just looks guilty.

Florida police accused of racial profiling after stopping man 258 times, charging him with trespassing at work.
In the last four years Earl Sampson, 28, has been questioned by police 258 times, searched more than 100 times, jailed 56 times, and arrested for trespassing 62 times. The majority of these citations occurred at his place of work, a Miami Gardens convenience store where the owner says police are racially profiling.
You know, being stopped that many times by jumpy cops, I guess he should be grateful he hasn't been shot yet. Talk about being a fugitive from the law of averages.

Sue them, both the department, and individually. Make it painful to their pocketbooks. And if the price gets steep enough, the citizens who pay the taxes (who pay their wages, and ultimately, the lawsuit), will do something about it too.
Maybe if this young man gets enough out of it, he won't have to work at the Kwik-E-Mart anymore. There! Problem solved!

If a bunch of the shop owners get their cameras up and running to document the PoPo abuses it would sure make a dandy Class Action federal Lawsuit. I think that with enough documentation from enough cameras, it should be a slam dunk. Sue the pants off those Out-Of-Control cops and the city gubmint officials they work for. Should really be interesting to watch.

I first looked at his face and thought that he looks as dumb as Forrest Gump. Then I looked again and realized that he just might be the very next winner of the "Florida Dumb City Multi-Millionaire Lottery". If those cops are so stupid as to allow themselves to get caught ON VIDEO violating this man's rights then they will have no choice but to make this man a MILLIONAIRE. I always find it amazing that when people get into a position of POWER that they lose their minds and make stupid mistakes that will in the end, cost them and their city millions of dollars.

Its our tax dollars that they end up giving these people
Its OUR money these people are winning in these law suits

Until we hold the cops responsible for their actions the police state is and will grow to affect each and everyone of us

If you were a fuck up but your boss kept paying for your fuck ups , would you work on doing better? nope you'd continue to be a fuck up and that's exactly the attitude these punk cops have

How many cops does it take to change a light bulb?

None..they just beat up the room for being black

It goes both ways on the race issue too, if you really want to take it down that road. Were all going to get F'ed by this police state and its actions
