News: NFL Player Prevented From Seeing His Dying Mother Due To Racist Cop?
Mar 27 | by Natasha
Houston Texans running back Ryan Moats was held up--right outside the hospital doors--by Dallas police officer Robert Powell. Ryan was rushing his wife and two of her family members to a hospital, where his mother-in-law lay dying. They even told the cop what was going on and he did not care. She died while Moats and his wife's grandfather waited outside the hospital for the officer to issue a ticket. Check out the unedited police car dashboard video here. People are in an outrage with how completely disrespectful and ridiculous this officer was being--esp. because he was only pulling him over for not completely stopping at a stop sign. When you have just seconds to see your dying mother, making a COMPLETE stop a stop sign when no one else is around is not your first thought. The officer said his dying mother was not an excuse to come to a complete stop. And he screamed and ordered the wife to get back in the car when she hopped out of it to run in the hospital--before she even knew they were being pulled over. The Dallas police chief has "apologized" and suspended the cop with pay. He says it was a completely uncompassionate act and embarrasing. Others are saying it's much more than that. It's simply a reflection of the racism amongst the cops that is still alive and well in Texas. This is a mess.
