  • Florida man accused of illegally detaining Black 18-year-old

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-ma...ry?id=72051445

    A former Florida theme park security guard has been arrested for allegedly acting like a "vigilante" when he "racially profiled" and falsely detained a Black teen who was on his way to basketball practice, prosecutors said.

    Santos called 911 claiming that the unidentified teenager was seen on video "breaking into cars" and that he thought the teen had stolen a bike. Prosecutors with the Hillsborough State Attorney's Office said there was no evidence of any crimes.

    Santos identified himself to the 911 operator as an off-duty officer, according to the call recording. Santos had left his job as a theme park security guard six months prior to the incident, but because his required security officer certifications were still valid at the time he confronted the teenager, he isn't being accused of impersonating an officer, prosecutors said.
    What the fuck is this?

            How are you an off-duty officer if you detain someone in a neighborhood but you are a theme park security guard?

              It looks like this Paul Blart got booked, which is a good thing. The only chance to stop stuff like this is to actually hold people accountable to the law. You can't roam around and detain people because you "think" something happened.

                And if the Black 18 year old stood up for himself this dickknob could “stand his ground” and shoot him.

                  so nobody died and the former guard got arrested. Feels like a coverup

                    Your capacity for self-delusion is nearly unparalleled. Do you think that, just because this guy got away alive, and the guy posing as an officer of the law got booked, but not with impersonating an officer — which he actually did — that somehow that makes this okay?

                    It’s not okay, dude. Shit is most definitely okay. Your favorite President is stoking racial animosity at a dizzying pace. His rhetoric is resounding with people like this guy. And, there are many of them out there.

                    Sure. I’m glad this instance ended without anyone getting hurt. But, you can’t just blow it off.

                            Yeah but it’s not, so who gives a shit? Paul Blart bothered someone’s kid and now he’s facing charges, what’s the problem? Shit like this happened to me like three times as a kid to one degree or another, and those assholes never even got punished.

                              Did the man get arrested? Then it was clearly not OK. Knew you'd somehow blame trump for this. Literally, not a cop, not white, detained a black kid illegality, and got arrested. This was a win for the public in general.
