A white woman sees a black man inspecting a house and calls the cops. But there’s a twist!

The police show up — and arrests, or angry conversations, or cries of racism follow.

That seemed to be the trajectory of an incident in Memphis earlier this month, but then there was an unusual twist. When the police showed, they backed the black guy.

A wave, then a dispute

On May 5, African-American real estate investor Michael Hayes was inspecting a house he’s interested in buying in a Memphis neighborhood.

He was pulling a board off the boarded-up home’s front down when a woman next door came outside. Hayes said he waved to her. The woman, who is white, asked him what he was doing. He pointed to the sign he had placed in the front yard.

“I told her that I had a contract and that I was an investor,” Hayes, who wanted to get inside the house to take pictures, told CNN. “But she wasn’t listening to that. She didn’t want to hear it.”

She said he had no right to be in her neighborhood and should leave, Hayes said. Then she called the police.

The police show up

At this point Hayes, who often records his activities as a real estate investor for his YouTube channel, pulled out his smartphone and started recording.

He was rolling when a squad car from the Memphis Police Department rolled up. The video shows Hayes explaining why he was at the home to a Memphis police officer.

The officer, soon joined by a second officer, seems to be convinced that Hayes has done nothing wrong and tells him that if he has anymore problems with the woman to call him back over to the house “and she will go to jail today.”

The officer then walks over to the woman’s yard and talks to her, warning her to leave Hayes alone.

“He’s just gonna go in there and do what he’s got to do. You’re going to let him do what he’s going to do,” the officer, motioning to Hayes and the house, says to the woman. “If you try to do anything to stop him, I’m going to take you to jail.”

Hayes then asks if one of the officers will stay on the scene for about five minutes so that he can finish his work.

A police report on the confrontation was not filed because “no criminal act was committed,” Lt. Karen Rudolph of the Memphis Police Department told CNN in a statement. “This incident was handled as an on-scene complaint.”

The woman’s version

Hayes commended the police officers for protecting him, saying the officers “handled it perfectly” and made him feel safe. He also alluded that the woman called the police on him simply because of his race.

“This type of stuff is still going on,” he said in the video. “You know why the lady called the police on me.”

CNN has reached out to the woman, Tiffany Albert, and is waiting to hear back.

But in an interview with CNN affiliate WMC, Alebert said she made her look like a racist.

“I’m Spanish,” Albert said. “My boyfriend is black. It’s nothing racist about it.”

Albert said people used the house to do drugs before the city finally boarded it up. She didn’t want the boards removed, she said.

“It took us so long to get these two houses boarded up,” Albert told the affiliate.

The entire incident shocked Hayes, he told CNN, because “I didn’t give her any reason to believe I was a threat, but she perceived me as a one.”

LAUREL, MISS.

Two Mississippi police officers have been fired after a man said they repeatedly kicked him in the face when they arrested him.

WDAM-TV reported Monday that Laurel police Capt. Tommy Cox says it became apparent to supervisors on duty that there was a problem with the way the arrest occurred, and the officers were fired. Police say the department has been in contact with the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation to look into the possibility of criminal charges against the officers.

Thirty-six-year-old James Barnett tells WDAM-TV the officers pursued and arrested him after he turned around from a police checkpoint May 16. Barnett says he exited the vehicle, lay down on the ground and was continuously kicked. He was charged with resisting arrest. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Three black actresses arrested for using bathroom at Houston’s, T.I. calls for boycott.

It looks like Houston’s is the latest restaurant chain to engage in racist treatment toward black folks after a police officer dragged three black actresses out of the dining destination because they were taking too long in the restroom.

Rapper, actor, and activist, T.I. has called for a boycott of the restaurant chain in response to the incident that landed the women in jail with one of them suffering injuries including a black eye.

Brittany Marie Lucio, Asia’h Sharrell Epperson (American Idol, Greenleaf) and Erica Walker say they were assaulted by an Atlanta police officer, Jay Guzman, who moonlights as a security guard at the restaurant. The ladies reportedly entered the restaurant after it was closed to use the bathroom. The officer admits he grabbed Lucio by the wrist and tried to “lead” her out the back door, but the video footage paints a much more violent picture of the ladies being man-handled and their attorney insists the officer threw them into the bushes.

“We are seriously concerned with the level of force that was used and we want answer to why they ended up in the bushes,” said their attorney, Gerald Griggs.

When asked why his clients refused to comply with the officer’s initial request for them to leave the restroom, he gave a pretty reasonable response.

“You can’t just leave the restroom after you just finish using it. You have to wash your hands. Have to make sure that you have taking care of all of your needs,” he said.

Lucio, Walker and Epperson were arrested and booked at the Fulton County Jail. All three were charged with Criminal Trespass and Lucio was also charged with Felony Obstruction. Their attorney wants all of the charges against them dropped.

“(The) response from Houston’s is very disturbing. This is a very disturbing case and we hope to be able to come to a swift resolution with the charges being dropped.”

Lucio shared photos of the injuries including cuts, scrapes, bruises and a black eye she alleges were inflicted by the officer on social media.

 

Absolutely UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR!!!! ACCOUNTABILITY IS MANDATORY!!!! U WILL PAY FOR THIS!!! COWARD!!!! ??????Houstons & Guzman!!!

Police: Syracuse man pointed loaded gun at officers before being arrested!

When UPS Delivered This Package To His Door, He Wanted To Show Everyone Why It Was Racist!

Sean Carter is a Harvard-educated attorney who currently practices law in Arizona. Despite this, he fears every day for his life and the lives of his family – solely because they are black. While many people would say racism is a thing of the past, the minorities of today are opening up about the racism of today. Carter decided to share his experience receiving a package that wasn’t intended for him as an example.

“This package has been sitting outside my house for days now. Why? Because we are black. And yes, I’ll explain,” the Phoenix resident wrote.

The package was apparently addressed to a family that lived just a few blocks down the street. Carter anticipated that people online would ask why he didn’t just bring the package himself, and that is the basis for his post.

“It’s extremely unsafe to send our boys to the home of any family that we don’t know in this predominantly white neighborhood. Why? Because there is a realistic chance that one of my neighbors will see my boy as a threat and call the police or even pull a gun,” he continued.

He recommends anyone that thinks he is exaggerating to google, “Brennan Walker.” Walker is a 14-year-old high school freshman who recently was shot at by a white man after he tried to ask her for directions.

The incident happened in early April after Walker slept in by accident and had to walk to school. He lost his way and approached the house. Walker knocked on the door and found a woman in hysterics. Security footage shows that she cried out to herself, “Why did these people choose my home?” This was just after he knocked on the door.

Jeffrey Ziegler has now been charged with assault with intent to murder and a felony firearm charge according to the local news reports. He could spend the rest of his life in prison after trying to kill this young man who simply tried knocking on a neighbor’s door for help.

“I feel terrible for the young man; I feel terrible for the mom and the anxiety that they had to go through,” Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said in an interview with WJBK in Michigan. “We are going to ask for every charge permissible for this guy who stepped up and fired a shotgun because someone knocked on his door.”

In his Facebook post, Carter makes a really good point. While some white Americans may think that racism is a thing of the past, the fact is these minorities are legitimately worried about their lives. To the point that they won’t even bring a package to a neighbor – and that is not okay.

“THAT is why the f-king package will be sitting on my porch until UPS retrieves it. Because I can’t trust that my white neighbors won’t see me, a Harvard-educated lawyer (or my 14 yo honor student son) as a roaming homicidal maniac. That’s what it’s like to be black in ‘post-racial’ America,” Carter wrote.
