Police arrested a man 56 times at work for trespassing.

September 11, 2019


THIS HOLIDAY FRIDAY. IF I WERE EARL SAMPSON, I THINK IF YOU WERE EARL SAMPSON, WE COULD ALL AGREE WE WOULD BE REALLY TICKED BECAUSE EARLICISMSON IN FLORIDA HAS BEEN STOPPED BY POLICE A TOTAL OF 258 TIMES. 258, AND ALL OF THAT IN FOUR YEARS. THE SEARCHES, 100 TIMES. ARRESTS AND JAILINGS, 56 TIMES. ALMOST EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE CITATIONS WAS ISSUED AT THE SAME PLACE, THE CONVENIENCE STORE WHERE EARL SAMPSON WORKS. OUR CORRESPONDENT JOHN ZARRELLA IS TRACKING THE STORY IN MIAMI. FIRST OF ALL, CAN WE BE CLEAR. IS EARL SAMPSON AN INCREDIBLE CRIMINAL, OR IS THERE SOMETHING STINKY IN THAT TOWN?>>NO, ACCORDING TO HIS ATTORNEY, THERE’S NOTHING ON HIS CRIMINAL RECORD OTHER THAN A MARIJUANA POSSESSION CHARGE. AND MOST ALL THE TIMES WHEN HE’S BEEN PICKED UP, DETAINED, EVERYTHING HAS BEEN DISMISSED, THROWN OUT, NOT ADJUDICATED, NOTHING WITH MR. SAMPSON. IN FACT, HIS ATTORNEY SAYS IF YOU ADDED IT UP, ALL THE TIMESES YOU MENTIONED, THAT’S THE EQUIVALENT OF BEING ARRESTED ABOUT ONCE A WEEK FOR THE LAST — OR PICKED UP OR DETAINED ONCE A WEEK FOR THE LAST FOUR YEARS. NOW, MIAMI GARDENS POLICE SAY THEY’RE TAKING THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THEIR OFFICERS SERIOUSLY. THEY’RE LOOKING INTO THE COMPLAINTS AND ALLEGATIONS THAT THEIR OFFICERS ARE TARGETING BLACK MALES. AND THE MAYOR OF MIAMI GARDENS, WHICH IS JUST SOUTH — NORTH OF MIAMI, SAYS THAT, LOOK, THIS IS A HIGH-CRIME AREA AND WE HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE. HERE’S WHAT MR. SAMPSON TOLD THEIR LOCAL AFFILIATE.>>THEY ALWAYS STOP ME, GOING IN MY POCKETS. ASKING ME FOR MY I.D. WANT TO KNOW MY NAME.>>SO HOW DID ALL THIS GET ST STARTED? ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO, THE OWNER OF A CONVENIENCE STORE HAD ENOUGH, SO HE INSTALLED SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS TO CATCH THE POLICE IN ACTION, TO SEE WHAT THEY WERE DOING. HE RECORDED DOZENS

    How is possible that those cops don't have Earl's driver's license memorized by now. They must be looking at it about as close as Earl does when someone buys a six pack.

    Something definitely wrong there. Interesting how the only narrative that can pop into a cnn anchor's head is racism. That's their opinion. Assuming that white people MUST be racist, is, in fact, racism.

    That's how far the police would go in trying to gentrify a black man, 200+ times. What's more disturbing is the law enforcement agencies don't investigate their own crimes like harassment, but it has time to go on tv for amusement. Fucking disgraceful world. If you shot one of them they all get in line to do something.

    So Earl has a job at the Quickstop store which he is being arrested for. White people would say Earl needs to stop working at the Quickstop an get on welfare because the job is making Earl a better man and paying his taxes is bringing down the neighborhood. The cops stopping Earl for 258 times is a sign that cops are not racist and really love black people. (This was viewed by the racist white prospective who view cops as the best thing since white sliced bread)๐Ÿ˜ž

    Sounds like they're trying to simply build up an arrest record so if he does anything close to serious he'll be toast.
    I remember as a teen growing up in Chicago getting stopped and searched all the time. The problem: I was a geek that while also was on high school sports teams my main love was video games and computers. I wasn't into drugs, gangs, or booze. So they would find nothing. Every time: Nothing.
    I just chalked it up as part of being a teen in Chicago at the time.

    You should report what black people do, among, other racist. You will only show the white people, while all races do this. Stop blaming the white people being racists. All races are racist against others. So stop putting the blame on one race.

    I AM NOT RACISTS. I HAD BLACK MEN MOLESTING ME A CHILD AND I DON'T HATE BLACK PEOPLE. THEY ALL ARE NOT THE SAME.

    SAME THING WITH WHITE PEOPLE, ASIAN PEOPLE AND OTHER CULTURES, NOT EVERY ONE THOSE RACES ARE RACISTS.

    ALL WE ARE DOING AS A SOCIETY, IS TEACHING OUR CHILDREN, IT'S OK TO HATE OTHERS FOR THEIR RACES. YOU HAVE TO THE CHOICE TO END IT BUT YOU DON'T.
