Princeton professor arrested for outstanding parking tickets; cites police racism

discuss:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...arking-ticket/

Quote:
A black Princeton professor says she was handcuffed to a table for her unpaid parking tickets

A professor at Princeton University wrote about her arrest this weekend for what she said was a three-year-old parking ticket, sparking debate on social media between those who see it as an example of racist behavior by police and others who believe it was an overreaction to a minor incident.

Her account tapped into the national conversation over police treatment of black people that has led to protests, including demonstrations at Princeton and many other colleges.

It reminded some of the 2009 arrest of the prominent Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. when he tried to force open the door of his own home.

But others pushed back, saying the scrutiny of police actions and tensions over race make officers' already dangerous jobs even more difficult.

Imani Perry, a professor of African American studies at Princeton who earned her doctorate and law degrees at Harvard, told this story online:

Yesterday, on my way to work, I was arrested in Princeton Township for a single parking ticket three years ago...

- Imani Perry (@imaniperry) February 7, 2016

The police refused to allow me to make a call before my arrest, so that someone would know where I was...

- Imani Perry (@imaniperry) February 7, 2016

There was a male and a female officer, but the male officer did the body search before cuffing me and putting me in the squad car.

- Imani Perry (@imaniperry) February 7, 2016

I was handcuffed to a table at the station.

- Imani Perry (@imaniperry) February 7, 2016

At any rate, I was afraid. Many women who look like me have a much more frightening end to such arrests.

- Imani Perry (@imaniperry) February 7, 2016

But the larger point is that I'm working to move from being shaken to renewing my commitment to the struggle against racism & carcerality.

- Imani Perry (@imaniperry) February 7, 2016

Nicholas Sutter, the chief of the Princeton Police Department, said, "We're having it investigated by our prosecutors' office to be totally transparent and objective. We'll make any changes to our protocol if deemed necessary."

He doesn't anticipate any changes, though. Sutter said he has reviewed the video and thought the officers responded fairly and in accordance with policies.

Perry was stopped Saturday morning for driving 67 miles per hour on a street with a 45-miles-per-hour limit, he said, at which time officers found an outstanding warrant for her arrest for two unpaid tickets. Under New Jersey law, if there's an active warrant, officers are required to take the person into custody, he said. She was handcuffed, as is everyone taken into custody, he said, and she was searched.

"It's common, it's not intrusive," he said. "I understand the perception and concern but it was well within policy."

He said "I totally understand, any time someone is arrested it's traumatic - I totally understand perceptions, and I'm very sympathetic to perceptions," that officers may treat people differently based on their race. "A police officer has an extremely difficult job in this atmosphere but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's something we have to adapt to. We're doing a lot of community outreach, and being extremely transparent. ... We're open to discussion and critique - it's a healthy conversation."

The Daily Princetonian first reported the story.

Perry declined to comment Monday. The chair of the African American studies department did not immediately have time to comment, but the department's Twitter account posted a link to a statement from Perry, "My encounter with Princeton police & the aftermath."

It read, in part:

The response I have received since sharing my story has been overwhelmingly caring and thoughtful. Many people are vigilant and impassioned these days regarding policing. This is a direct result of the social movement that has emerged over the last several years. That is good. And it personally feels wonderful to be so supported. However, there are quite a few people who seem upset that I received support. Mostly they are suggesting that I am playing "innocent" when I am "guilty." What they fail to understand is that I did not purport to be without fault. Now, make no mistake, I do not believe I did anything wrong. But even if I did, my position holds. The police treated me inappropriately and disproportionately. The fact of my blackness is not incidental to this matter.
In every profession, as in every life endeavor, people exercise discretion according to who they favor and who they disfavor, who they believe matters and who they consider inconsequential. And, as my own work and that of many colleagues has established, in this society abundant evidence exists that discretion is exercised, in general, in racially discriminatory fashion in virtually every arena studied from elementary school suspensions, to car purchases, to teachers recommending students for gifted and talented programs, to how often waiters visit your table in restaurants, to mortgages, to police stops and arrests. All things being equal, people in this society consistently disadvantage Black people compared to others. (And all things are rarely equal, but that is another matter.)

... We already know it IS the standard protocol for people in poor Black, Indigenous, and Latino communities to experience disproportionate police surveillance, harassment, violence, and punishment. That is the graver injustice. I'm asking you to understand that my experience, and my feelings, are directly and intimately tied to that larger truth. We unquestionably have a serious problem with policing in this society.

This was my first time in handcuffs. They were very cold on my arthritic wrists.

Amazing how she left off that she was going over 20 mph over the limit and had an outstanding warrant

Warrants only apply to poor people. If the person is UMC or higher, then it's NBD and the police ought to let you go with a warning to "get that cleaned up when you can."

If you want to do 22mph over the speed limit, expect to be pulled over. If you don't pay your parking tickets (or contest them in court), expect a warrant to be issued. If you are pulled over and have an active warrant, expect to be cuffed and arrested.

If equality is what you truly strive for, then you should not be offended if they treat you like a hardened criminal.... because according to your desires, that treatment should be the same across the board.

So, which is it? Without fault? Or didn't do anything wrong?

Hey last time I watched Cops it did seem like they gave all the white people a phone call before they cuffed them so "they would know where they were".

What a sanctimonious bitch. If she thinks she is helping black people with her stupidity, she is sorely mistaken.

Stop giving your attention to the media then with their bullsh!t click-bait articles. I know very well how these things work. The more outrageous the article is, the more clicks they get, the more adds the will show, the more money they will make. Profit over substance or pretty much anything else = modern capitalism.

You must be new here. Click bait threads is what e46 OT is about and the several pages of the same old arguments that accompany each thread. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Why do you hate America? You're so anti capitalist that you run your own business.
