Each time I tell my daughter, sister, and brother that police officers are to be trusted rather than feared or loathed, something shitty like this happens.
Ryan Moats plays for the NFL, for the Houston Texans. On March 18th, he was speeding in Plano, right by the hospital. His mother-in-law was literally dying at that moment and he was pulled over. Below is the video. What follows when he is pulled over is asinine, heinous, and completely uncalled for. When I saw it the first time, I was shaking with anger. And then I read in the paper that the mother-humper actually pulled out his gun on Mr. Moats and his family. Are you kidding me?
Police Officer Robert Powell needs to get his ass kicked for this. At the very least, I think he needs to lose his job. I don't think he should get a second chance at being a cop. He doesn't deserve that honor. He had absolutely no reason to act like an ass to these people. They didn't give chase, they weren't being non-compliant or rude. And it's not like they ran a fucking red light because they were drunk, high, or young high school punks. Or, for that matter, NFL football players that think they can do whatever the hell they want.
They ran a red light because a member of their family was dying. They were still being as safe as possible, and had their flashers on.
I am shocked, saddened, and disgusted. Who the f- does this police officer think he is?
I am so incredibly sorry that this happened. I have no words to adequately convey my anger and regret.
