Hispanics accuse Pasadena police of harassment

PASADENA, Texas — Members of the community group ACORN marched on the Pasadena police station on Thursday, to complain about what they consider police harassment of Hispanics as a means to enforce immigration laws.

The group had hoped to meet with acting Pasadena Police Chief Michael Jackson, but instead had to deliver a list of questions they sought to be answered.

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now member Jose Valdez accused the police department of pulling over people “because their skin is brown” and alleged that in addition to asking for the drivers’ licenses and proof of insurance of seeking out the drivers’ Social Security numbers. He said the methods were a tactic to enforce federal immigration laws.

Valdez complained too about Mayor Johnny Isbell’s recent order to crack down on drivers who do not have state mandated liability insurance. Earlier this year Isbell pushed through a zero-tolerance policy within Pasadena when drivers are found not to have liability insurance.

The policy leads to an almost automatic impounding of the driver’s car and in some cases arrest.

OK, maybe I’m missing something here. It happens from time to time. Is this one of those times? What’s wrong with this story??

The Pasadena PD is doing the job they are hired to do. They are stopping traffic violators, asking for their drivers license, proof of insurance and a social security card as proof of U.S. citizenship.

So, what am I missing here?? What is it these clowns from ACORN are upset about?? The fact that the officers are doing their job??

I can’t say for certain what the law reads in your particular state but here in Texas if an officer stops you for a traffic violation he IS going to ask for a drivers license and proof of insurance. And if you don’t have proper insurance, in many towns in Texas, your car WILL BE TOWED. That’s the breaks, you are driving an ILLEGAL vehicle and now you’re going to pay the price.

“Why is Mayor Isbell been enforcing the insurance laws that are in affect for Texas and the fact that they have been targeting Hispanics and they don’t stop as many whites or any other people with a tone of skin other brown,” said Valdez. “It’s costing us money to be able to get our cars back, to be able to get people out of jail for having to pay bail bonds to get them out.”

Uh, why are they enforcing the law?? It’s what they do dumbass, it’s called Law Enforcement for a reason and it’s what cops do. And maybe they stop more folks with brown skins because they are maybe, just maybe, the highest percentage of violators. Just guessing here, but that would make a lot of sense don’t you think?

Police Departments do NOT sit in the briefing room before the shift and make statements like, “OK men, today we have a 10 ticket minimum and there’s 2 extra points for every one you write to a Mexican…”, it just doesn’t work that way. Law breakers are all the same in the eyes of the police, they’re ALL cretins and a menace to society, regardless the color of their skin.

ACORN was also seeking to have the Pasadena Police Department to accept Mexican consulate identification cards as proper means of ID.

Here’s a suggestion, get a real drivers license, proof of insurance, a green card and become LEGAL, then you don’t have to sweat it the next time that mean old policeman stops you and that piece of shit Tijuana Taxi you drive, the one with the dingle balls all around the windshield, the little bobblehead dog in the back window and smoke pouring out of the exhaust pipe.

    Oh. My. God. That has to be one of the most insane stories I’ve read. It matters not they break the law, they are being picked on ???? Puhleeze.
    They are criminals…they need to go the hell back to wherever they came from, and bitch and whine there. Damn cowards !

    Damn it, even if another Chinese was a criminal I would be all too willing to beat up the bastard. If the cops go after him nobody is going to cry “racism”. This may be coming to my country sooner than I think, it has already spread to Englanistan.

    Does anyone know of a good electronic cleaner? I have coffee everywhere!

    I’m speechless. Utterly speechless. “Why” enforce the law? Uh…. why the hell NOT? It the law. It’s a damn GOOD law. It applies to everyone equally. Just because more hispanics BREAK the law, does not mean they are being ‘targeted’. It freakin’ means they are breaking the law!

    Criminy! I can’t even find the words.

    Are ya’ll aware that the Obamanation is a past member, supporter and all-around cheerleader for ACORN?

    Ya might want to check into that angle, too. Sure sounds like the kind of influence I want someone to have on MY President.
