    Racial Profiling

    I was sitting outside with my wife, son and two friends when the officers approached me. They were looking for two black men with red beaters. I was actually wearing a blue beater my friends were both wearing white beaters. They just assumed that it was me due to the color because I am black. They asked for my name and date of birth thinking they can link me to their investigation. After we argued for a while they handcuffed me and told me they were taking me to the county jail. I know my rights. In a few minutes they just let me go. When I asked him why they let me go he replied I just had a change of heart. To me that is not how the constitution is written to approach me coming out of my house. You don't use the law to discriminate your race. To me that was humiliation in front of my neighbors my coworkers and especially my wife and son. Please review the video and if you cant see these videos I have it up on my Facebook link. My Facebook name is Abdul dhalow ​
