    Doesn’t matter black. We have to stop with the black thing. That same thing happened to me in broad daylight leaving my high school. I’ll never forget the Troopers name. SG Burke. Nj state police. This was 1996 and my mother just bought me a brand new car. The Troopers were standing in the street literally 5 feet from my car. I looked left and I looked right because they were right there. Then as I was about to go. The Trooper told me to pull over. He was to my left standing and I was in my car window down thats how close we were. I litterally puked maybe 15 feet to the right and stopped. I asked why I was being pulled over after he asked for Dl ins reg. He said I have no front plate on my car. He was correct from his view point however when I pulled to the right and he had to walk up I’m sure he could see the TEMPORARY TAG. I said to him your right I don’t have a plate because it’s a new car then said the temp tag is in the back window. He could see that obviously but he instead continued with his stop. Dl ins and reg he said again. I was confused and said you pulled me over for not having a front plate but I have a valid temp on the car so what is the problem. Anyway I’m not black and this was a Sgt standing infront of a high school at 2 pm when the kids get out looking to harass kids. This is the high school in my town that is the richest mostly white high school kids. Mostly white means like probably 90 percent or higher white kids. This cop was a total loser and I’ll never forget his name. Sgt Burke Nj state troopers 1996. Total tool.
