Default NAACP leader's racial profiling claim challenged after bodycam footage released

There's been so many stories of blacks lying 'bout police harassment so sorry if I already posted this.

A NAACP leader race-baiting. Nice, huh?

This is pretty much the MO of most blacks and the NAACP as a whole. There's no real epedimic of racism so they just make it up.

When will blacks stop this nonsense and be happy race relations are generally good? And when will blacks create a legit civil rights organization and have real leaders?

Scumbag. This pos pastor needs to resign as a NAACP leader and actually read the bible instead of making a mockery of it by lying and spreading hate.

NAACP leader's racial profiling claim challenged after bodycam footage released

A South Carolina NAACP chapter president who says he was racially profiled during a traffic stop was accused of lying after police released video footage of the encounter, according to reports.

"Tonight, I was racially profiled by Timmonsville Officer CAUSE I WAS DRIVING A MERCEDES BENZ AND GOING HOME IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD," Timmonsville NAACP President Rev. Jerrod Moultrie said in an April 13 Facebook post, according to Fox 5 Atlanta.

"He made a comment that the officer accused him of having drugs in the car,” Timmonsville Police Chief Billy Brown said, according to the station. “He said that his wife and grandchild was in the car. He asked them not to move because the officer looked as if he might shoot them or something. He also made mention that the officer continued to ask him about his neighborhood. Why was he in that neighborhood? And threaten[ed] to put him in jail in reference to something dealing with the registration to the vehicle."

Brown told the station that after reviewing the bodycam video of the stop, he determined there was nothing to Moultrie’s claims.

"When I saw the video, I was shocked that someone who is supposed to be a community leader, a pastor, and head of the NAACP would just come out and tell a blatant lie,” the police chief said. “It bothered me. It really bothered me, thinking about the racial unrest it could've cost in the community and it's just troubling to me that someone who held a position like that would come out and just tell a lie.”

Based on the body camera footage, the officer who stopped Moultrie neither asked if he had drugs in the car nor why he was driving in the area,” the Raleigh News & Observer reported.

The paper reported that the officer stopped Moultrie for making a turn without signaling.

According to the paper, Moultrie’s Facebook post had been deleted.

Fox 5 quoted a local community activist as saying that he was so upset by Moultrie’s claims that he went to the police department to take a look at the video.

Timothy Waters of Florence said the video just made him more upset, the station reported.

"Once I got a copy of that bodycam, it's as if he made the whole story up. And I felt like he set us back 100 years because think about all of the racial profiling cases [that] are true," Waters said.

The station quoted Moultrie as declining further comment.

Dude's first attempt at lying/race-baiting failed so he's changing his story with a brand new accusation.

Scary thing is this dude is a NAACP leader. This is one of many reasons blacks constantly lie 'bout racism. Truth is racism rarely happens in this day and age. Almost every alleged incident is complete bs...just like this one. Dude was busted lying and still wants to pretend he was harassed.

Video contradicts NAACP president’s story. So he tries odd new angle to target cops.

So what’s happening now?
Timmonsville, South Carolina’s local NAACP chapter is apparently displeased with the findings on the video — and Moultrie himself is now claiming that two officers conducted the traffic stop in question, and it was the other one who reportedly racially profiled him.

WPDE released a Wednesday statement from the NAACP which revealed that the org was embarking on their own investigation into the alleged incident.

In response to questioning by the NAACP’s Regional Field Office regarding an account of the traffic stop he posted on social media, the branch president, Rev. Jerrod Moultrie, addressed apparent contradictions between the body cam footage released by the Timmonsville Police Department and his social media account of the incident. Rev. Moultrie asserted that two different police officers questioned him after his car was stopped in the subdivision in which he resides.

According to Rev. Moultrie, the body cam footage captures the arrival of the second police cruiser on the scene, but does not capture his interaction with the officer who conducted the initial stop – in a separate vehicle – and who interacted with Rev. Moultrie before the second police cruiser arrived.

The NAACP is continuing its internal investigation and seeking the full disclosure of all relevant information regarding the incident involving Rev. Moultrie and the Timmonsville Police Department.

The NAACP also takes this opportunity to counter misleading assumptions about racial profiling in the context of traffic stops. Racial profiling, in this context, concerns the reasons for stopping a particular vehicle at a particular time, not whether the officer conducting the stop (or any other officer on the scene) is impolite. In the incident involving Rev. Moultrie, the officer in the body cam footage states that the reason for the stop was the driver’s failure to signal for a turn. Whether that justification is a pretext for racial discrimination is an issue separate and distinct from whether any officer displayed racial bias against Rev. Moultrie during the stop.

WPDE reported that Police Chief Brown, however, said Moultrie’s account is wrong once again.

WPDE reported that Brown said a South Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper stopped to officer assistance during the stop — as is fairly customary — but that the Highway Patrol Trooper allegedly never left the doorway of his cruiser.

“[The second trooper] never left the doorway,” Brown said. “He had no contact with Moultrie at all. Now, and it’s common sense, anybody who has ever been stopped by law enforcement, and there have been times where there was a backup officer.”

“But, give me a case where one officer will come and ask for your credentials, deal with you, and after he finishes with you, another officer comes up and ask for your credentials again, and deal with you again,” Brown explained. “It just doesn’t happen that way. It doesn’t work that way.”

Brown emphasized that the original video footage showed the entire interaction between Moultrie and the officers.

“The video tells everything,” Brown said. “The video tells you who had dealings with Moultrie. The video tells you who, what he claimed happened and what didn’t happen. And the video would clearly tell you that there was only one officer who approached Moultrie.”

Brown also disputes that the NAACP chapter is conducting a fair investigation.

“How do you conduct an investigation and you don’t contact the agency that it involves? We have heard nothing from the NAACP. Nothing whatsoever,” Brown said. “What should’ve been done was contact me, let’s look at the video. Let’s come to some type of conclusion. Our apology whatever to the officer, to the community, and let’s move on, instead of continuing trying to cover. Because that’s exactly what it is. The video speaks for itself. We don’t have to say one word.”

When people like the person in the OP have to make up stories about racism, it distracts from any actual racism that is happening. I am sure there are racists incidents daily in most cities in this country. But how many of those are actual racism and falls allegations like the one in the OP?

If people could just get on with their own lives and quit focusing on everything that may or may not offend someone else, I am sure that race relations in this country could be to a point where racism is no longer an issue.

NAACP is by definition a racist organization. If it weren't it would be the NAAAP.

In the last couple weeks there seems to be an abundance of these made up claims. Several have been posted here. Defending these claimers serves nothing for the cause, but instead negates other possibly accurate claims.

that's a very hopeful view. but racism hasn't just generally faded away with the passage of time during our country's history.
At every step of improvement people have had to shine an uncomfortable light on the darkness. slavery didn't fade away, Jim Crow didn't fade away, civil right didn't gradually just happen, people had to make some noise. many whites where UNaware of how bad it was and Many where in complete denial of the problems at every step.

There's no doubt there are some people that have lied about racism that never happened. But most blacks and other minorities simply don't have time to just MAKE up racist events and accusations or spend time looking for them.

I've mentioned elsewhere that for myself and at least 2 black men in my profession we went in extremely optimistic and not very concerned about racism but ended up being warned by whites above us or on the inside that it it was happening to us or others who had tried to get jobs in the field. In most cases we'd been oblivious to it and were NOT looking for it and frankly tried to rule out every other option ..."bad day" "generally a jerk" "bad boss" "poor decision maker"... until you sadly realized it's not just that they don't like you, it's not your work, they're uncomfortable becasue i'm black.

And If you live in a mainly white area and the same cop is pulling you over 3 times a month for nearly a year. Fairly early on you begin to think that the cop might have problem with your race. that happened to a close friend of my wife, she just put up with it never reported it, finally the cop stopped.

the fact that there are fakes doesn't diminish the reality.
the fakers should be exposed. But so should the racist acts... especially of law enforcement and public officials.
Neither should be minimized or used as and excuse to ignore the issue.

and while it's a nice idea that racism will just go way if we all stop talking about it. it's never worked that way before. and frankly based on human nature, it's never going away. But it can still be held up to public scorn.
