Aiight Family I would like your feedback on this... It really has been bothering me...
Now for the record I have very specific socio-political views and dictate my strong affinity for my own African-American heritage. However, I treat people on a one on one basis and how they interact with me.I dont encounter an entire race when meeting individuals, so although I have very strong feelings about OUR history in deez here United States; I recognize that everone is an individual and deserve to be treated on their own merits... That being said.. this is what happen'd to me yesterday.
I was picking my son up from my sisters and as we were getting into my car, another car back'd up and hit my car (driver side rear panel). My sister was standing at the Trunk.
Rocked it pretty good and did some nice damage.
2 Latino gentlemen got out of the car. The passenger spoke very good english and apologised.
I was calm and said no big deal we can just exchange info and handle it from there. The Driver did not speak english very well. I got my insurance info.
I asked him for his drivers license with my info in my hand ready to exchange our info. He says his driver's license is in their house. He walks to the house... He was in there for a while. I aske the other gentleman where did he go. The passenger guy started laughign, said this was no big deal and said that he could take care of it... *okay my radar is on high alert ...right?* I told the passenger guy, no problem I just need the driver's info. I.e License and insurance stuff. moments later a Lastino woman comes out of the house that the driver enter'd. She introduces herself, I do the same. She informs me that its her car, and he was her husband. I said fine I just need his info. She proceeds to call her insurance company. My sister and I realize what was going originally I wasnt trying to call the police... wasnt necessary. But that changed. The refused to give me the info of the driver, the Latino lady gives me the phone to talk to HER insurance company... My sister calls FiveO. Insurance lady on the phone tells me the Latino lady says she doesnt know who was driving her car...
The guy doesnt have a license!! I tell the police what happens. They talked to me and my sister then the Latino group. They tell the police that they didnt do it!!! LOL My car was already damaged. *Thank God my sister began taking pictures as soon as it happen'd and she got a pic of the car's position in relation to mine before they moved it!!!*
Okay so Im pissed off now... We are talking to the police... they find out the guy is prolly an illegal immigrant, no license ... on a VA id.with the name Alexis Barahona.
So far, he has NO Driver's license, she gives false info at the scene of an accident. Which to my knowledge are infractions that result in being jailed especially the driver's license thing!
I asked for a report to be written. The police officer ( WASP) tells me and my sister He doesnt think that is necessary. and then says unless I insist... I tell him... I INSIST!!!
He enters their home, nothing in hand... comes out 5 mins later and hands me a form with the guys info. No report #... no tickets at all were issued to them ....
I left disgusted!
I told her to contact the police station on a 3 way call.
My sister waited for the police to leave and called the Police station and asked for the Major. He came back out to her house... and he went to their (The Latino couple) and issued tickets to the guy...
NOW... My issue is ... WE (Black Folk) rarely get those congenial type of cops who minimalise the sitch, and just want to do very little paper work.
brothas get lock'd up on the spot for a whole lot LESS...
The cops that were there did everything in their power to ignore the situation. And refused to lock up or issue tickets to any of the Latino people.
feed back please!
