White police officer to black female motorist pulled over for traffic stop; failure to make a complete stop at a stop sign:

Ma'am can I see your license and registration?

Black female motorist:

Oh no you didn't just pull me over... mother ****** I ain't showing you nothing you ain't got no right to pull me over this is nothing more than harassment and racial profiling and I aint saying **** to you honky you better get a black cop out here to deal with me.






Five minutes later black police officer arrives:

Ma'am can I see your license and registration please?

Black female motorist:

Nigga I ain't showing you noththing You Ain't Nothin But a God damn Uncle Tom a lap dog for whitey and I ain't talkin to you no more you better get a female cop out here to deal with me.

10 minutes later black female police officer arrives:

Ma'am can I see your license and registration please?

Black female motorist:

Bitch you I ain't got no reason to pull my ass over I ain't doing nothing wrong this is nothing but the police harassment and racial profiling my rights are being violated and I want to talk to a supervisor I'm not talking to you no more.

15 minutes later black female police sergeant arrives:

Ma'am could you step out of the vehicle and talk to me please?

Black female motorist screaming:

**** you I ain't getting out of my car you got four cops here and I know if I get out of my car one of you motherfuckers is going to shoot me dead I'm calling the news media I want this videotaped I want everybody to see that this is nothing but police harassment and racial profiling you all pulled my ass over for no God damn good reason and now you got me surrounded by four pigs I'm just one person.

2 minutes later the local news truck shows up with a live report breaking in to National programming.

Black female motorist being interviewed now in a very calm voice:

I don't know why they pulled me over I wasn't doing anything wrong and now I've been surrounded by four police officers I'm in fear of my life I feel that if I get out of this car that one of them is going to assassinate me.

Thirty seconds later Al Sharpton arrives screaming for all the media to hear:

This is a travesty... This is what it's come to when a black person can't drive down the road without being pulled over by four police officers on some trumped-up charges... This is obviously a clear-cut case of racial profiling and police harassment.

Two minutes later 200 black lives matter protesters show up holding signs saying hands up don't shoot chanting: Pigs in a blanket fry them like bacon... What do we want Dead Cops when do we want it now.

15 minutes later Obama is on CNN calling for a federal civil rights investigation.

1 months later the black female motorist receives $50,000 to settle out of court... The federal investigation cost 13.5 million dollars and determines the police department to be racist because they only have one female black sergeant on the Department and has it disbanded... Local community residents now have to wait 20 minutes for state police to respond to Priority calls.

@dalehileman,
The plot's thin. The characters are cardboard.

Seriously, if the OP wants to sell this story, he's going to have to introduce better dialogue and set the scenes better. Perhaps a romantic subplot would endear a publisher.

The Romantic subplot is that BLM and people like AL Sharpton love to hate.

@giujohn,
Odd capitalizations? Honestly, you need proofreading services. Writers striving for believability need to capture readers' attentions and keep them. Spelling, punctuation, and capitalization errors take readers out of the story. The suspension of disbelief is lost and, once it's gone, it'll never return.

Plus the swearing. The YA market is not going to buy this.

I oft ask the a2k folk such. There must be dozens of similar sites, so isn't it natural to wonder what it is about this one in particular

The occasional participant fields a great, long op that must have taken hours to write, entailing the q, why should one care about the notions of several total strangers

...unless it's just to innocently chat

Well since I don't have to type because I can just talk into this and it does the typing for me it only takes as long as it does for me to say it... Which is nice, and no, I don't bother with correcting the punctuation... if the reader can't figure it out they're probably not that intelligent anyway.

@giujohn,
Or the reader might feel little to no care was taken in the posting of such statements.

'Cause, you know, it's like making sure your shirt isn't stained when you go out in public.

But hey, whatever. If you don't want anyone to find your posts credible, that's hardly my problem or concern. And feel free to dismiss my years of posting and moderating sites.

Have a nice day!

PS Take care, Dale.

Ya...OK...a little thin-skinned aren't we? It's an Internet site not a college English composition course... I'm not here to impress anybody... Just to get my point across. I don't take it that seriously I don't know why you are . Have a nice day.

The dialogue isn't realistic, in my opinion, since not one police officer mentions the reason for stopping the driver. Also, there isn't any reply from any officer, apparently acquiescing to the tirade from the driver? It could be a sketch on some comedy show?

What I find sad about this is that when Amos 'N Andy was listened to/watched by millions of Americans, the humor was just self-deprecating Black on Black humor. There was no attempt to make it adversarial with whites. If that is a sign of the times, I pray for the U.S. to think where we are going as a society.

This would be funny if it weren't so true - you must have actually been there taking notes.

Unfortunately the dialogue is all too real.

The officer is not obligated by any law or regulation to
immediately tell the motorist the reason for the Stop and usually does not interact with the motorist on that level until he has first identified the motorist and establishes that the motorist is legally operating the vehicle. The officer as a trained Observer is also evaluating the overall situation based on the response and demeanor of the driver... One of the things he is immediately assessing is whether or not the driver may or may not be a threat to his safety or well-being as this is Paramount in the beginning of the traffic stop as it is always an unknown.

Nowadays acquiescing in any fashion when dealing with a motorist in the above scenario regardless what the officer says especially if the motorist is recording the encounter will be taken out of context and negatively portrayed in the media by people who have an axe to grind and have no idea why the officer does what he does nor do they care... they will purposely give it a negative slant in an effort to broadly paint all police officers as jack-booted Thugs and Stormtroopers in order to further their cause or simply for higher ratings. With the hostile environment that persists today exasperated by liberally biased media and radical liberal organizations such as BLM it seems now that is better for the officer to remain silent because anything he says will be unfairly used against him.
This ladies and gentlemen is what the state of policing in the United States is coming to... And then we will all be asking ourselves why has the crime rate exploded and why aren't the police as effective as they could be... So endeth the lesson.

@giujohn,
You probably meant "exacerbated" instead of "exasperated," although I'm sure the officer was certainly exasperated after this exchange. Cool

Yes this voice recognition that does my typing is not perfect and I didn't notice the mistake but thanks for pointing it out
