The men claim they were victims of excessive force following a crash on Dec. 14, 2016.

Two black Idaho State University football players are suing law enforcement in Idaho and Utah, claiming they were illegally detained and arrested, and victims of excessive force based on their race.

Nehemiah McFarlin and Atoatasi Fox filed a civil rights lawsuit Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Utah.

According to the complaint, McFarlin and Fox pulled over at an exit in Box Elder County, Utah, following a single-car crash on Dec. 14, 2016, in McFarlin's 2017 Chevy Camaro.

The complaint says officers arrived, and with weapons drawn, ordered McFarlin and Fox out of the car, searched them, handcuffed them and told them they were under arrest for robbing a bank in Malad.

The complaint says McFarlin and Fox insisted they were innocent, had alibis and could not have been in Malad at the time of the robbery.

Sounds like a more to the story story. I doubt they were pulled solely because they were black. More likely they fit the description of a couple of bank robbers.

Suing while black seems to be a new category of lawsuit.

they were beat up. they constantly said they had alibis. no police officers need better training in common sense.
a young officer was going to search a friend of mine for drugs a few years back, a very elderly white woman on her way to another town to visit relatives. Luckily an older officer stopped to lend a hand and stopped him saying, "Have a look at your situation here..."
the lady was driving a newer sedan (in a color popular with seniors), had a bobble headed dog toy in the rear window, etc.,...
people including police officers don't get enough common sense cause almost everybody's off the farm now and most people don't create things from scratch...etc.
yes there needs to be retraining.

Where did you get the idea they were beat up? Not from anything I've read.

I have no idea what your post has to do with the current situation.

If any person with a badge and a gun talked to me with those words coming out of the hole under his nose, I think I might enjoy my time in jail for wrapping his testicles around his neck and tying them into a bow.

I agree. Too many dumbasses out there playing professional police officer, and they probably still live with their mommies or grandmothers, and they know doodly squat about their job.

Note--I do know some people who were spoken to in that manner by doughnut eaters, but no professional police officers.
