This is the result of handing out participation trophies to every child, video taping their every move and spoiling them all their short lives. Everything must be fair… How do we change this?

I’m gonna agree with the Princeton professor and university on this one. It’s because of a 3 year old PARKING TICKET that her license was suspended and a warrant issued. She never received any notification that her license was suspended or that a warrant was issued. Please put yourself in her place… I’d be mad too. If it was 3-10 unpaid parking tickets – maybe. But one really old PARKING ticket is easy to forget about, especially if there is anything going on in your life at the time and no reminders about a parking ticket. I think the whole system messed up on this one. Now the fact that she was speeding should warrant a hefty ticket, but not a reason for handcuffing and a trip to jail.
This is what happens to anybody that has a warrant. CEO, or hobo. Feelings of entitlement don't change that.
And race has nothing to do with what you just said. She brought it into it. Get mad, raise hell, show how stupid the whole thing was and move on. The fact that you had to use race means nothing if you only look at facts. A non-black person would have to do exactly what I just wrote… and they would have received exactly the same treatment from the police. Shocker, right? Or, if you're inclined to think conspiracy… then you are projecting white privilege where there isn't any. Some cops are bad, not many. Some whites are racist, not many. And… gasp!… some blacks are racist too, not many.
I agree with you. The heavy-handed "always handcuff" approach to arrests is stupid. Police should be able to use their discretion. That said, if she had been white she would have been subjected to the same treatment. It happens every day in police jurisdictions throughout the land. Nothing racial about it.
Different states handle things differently. Remember, the officers do not write the laws, they only enforce them. And often they don't get to pick and chose what they are going to do. It might have been better if the female officer had patted down the professor, but that's a Hobson's choice. If their Standard Operating Procedure required her to be handcuffed to the table, chances are good that they had others in the past totally flip out and hurt either themselves or the officers.
Did you check her mail? She lied about how she was treated. What makes you think she wouldn’t also lie about that?
Chief is right. My very WHITE MALE friend recieved same treatment for driving while suspended.
She was inconvenienced for sure but that could have been avoided by
1. Don't park there.
2. Pay the ticket.
3. Check your mail.
4. Pay the fines for suspended license.
The police officers cannot choose which arrest warrants they execute. If the systems says 'detain' or 'arrest' then they have no choice.
As for handcuffs, check the department policy. Most, if not all departments have detainees in cuff for everyones' protection
Ya like being a RACIST Black pond dropping.
She lied about the police mistreating her. You think she might have lied about not knowing about the parking ticket?
ummm....maybe its about revenue and not race?!?!?!...Just saying....and not saying revenue is right either..
While I certainly can't know for sure, I'm pretty sure there's about a 0% chance that she was never notified of the suspension. That's one of the oldest lies in the book. Almost nobody is going to say "why yes officer, I was aware of the suspension, I just didn't care." They're going to say "um...I never knew I was suspended!"
Paying a parking ticket isn't that hard, and I'm sure a Princeton professor can probably afford it.
Are you sure that she never received any correspondence? I am sure that the city has a record of the notification being sent and more than likely, a copy of it. It appears to me that she is just playing the race card as many minorities do!
Parking tickets are always left on your car, after living in SF I know very well, about parking tickets that's half their revenue. So you take them and pay them by the due date and nobody will come looking for you. Pretty reasonable and easy.
Reference -- "She never received any notification that her license was suspended or that a warrant was issued."
Where in the world did you see that? What source. Prove it.
Also, you telling us that a supposedly well educated person isn't responsible for their actions. While these very same people expect everyone else to know all the rules and regulations. And would expect the same at their University and classroom.
If anything. You are actually advocating against what she believes. Which is big government. And proving the point about the problems of big government. The major difference being she thinks she should have to follow them and should be treated special because of her color/race, or being a female, or being a Professor at the University,...or bing supposedly important and...hence special.
We taught you was for equal opportunity and equality under the law, and for big government, and against the elitist establishment. Which she belongs too.
Obviously...you are not.
Heck, compared to past history. We have way more respect for this 'strong women' than this professor. Not to mention she has probably been more of an encouragement to people that has lead to greater things. Than this example could ever dream of.
Now having said that. If she just had a bad day...and missed up. Blank happens. ...But if this is going to turn into I'm special than others, because of XYZ. Then that is Bull.
Many people are posting without knowing the whole story. She disregarded multiple tickets in two different states. She was notified multiple times over 3 years. A Bench warrant was issued for her arrest. The police did not tow her vehicle as they do in most cases, but instead even gave her a ride back to her vehicle after processing. She posted many false racial accusations against the Police Dept on twitter. She posted a 4 page letter of nothing but lies about what happened to her during this incident. She has multiple law degrees from the best collages in the country and has taught law for many years yet she claimed ignorance to the citations and warrant. The lies she told caused Princeton University and some black organizations to immediately come to her defense with anti police rhetoric before they knew any of the true facts and started unwarranted turmoil in a community that prides itself with diversity and acceptance. The Princeton PD quickly released this video to stop her untruthful BS from fanning the type of flames that the BLM types use to tear a community apart.
You also forget. the cost of tickets would go that much further up. And they don't have the resources to go and stay on top of finding people. So they just put the warrants out and figure one day you will be stopped for something. Then they got you.
But you think that is bad...check out what is happening in another Democrat and Liberal State. Talk about government profiting. And DOJ is no where to be found.
Talk about hurting the poor. And the people that already having problems. Maybe she needs a 'Reality Check'.
She broke the law. Why should the police department need to "remind" her to pay the fine. She should have taken the responsibility and just paid it. Arrest = handcuffs. That's the way it is. She very well could have spun out of control and hurt someone. After all, she is a LIAR. Why trust her? Give me one good reason.
The way I remember it the address on the license was not where she was living. That might make it hard to threaten her with a suspended license.

Are they attempting to promote or discourage sexual promiscuity? Or is this their way of coming out in support of gay marriage and lending biblical support to it? They believe the bible tells them to? You either believe it or you don’t because how does a person decide what the bible says is true or not. One can pick and choose the book to death, maybe that is the end result. God either said it or he didn’t say it. Fall of Rome… yada, yada, yada.

So that last line of the article – blaming it on the crazy stuff from the Internet….Here comes control of the Internet. Stand up and fight against anyone controlling the Internet!
He said nothing about controlling the internet. It is crazy the type of things that we can access online these days. His Royal Highness did not propose restricting or controlling the internet.

To all who read these articles and make comments here on the blaze – it’s important to follow up and search out the organizations that are inciting violence against our police officers. Track down those websites, facebook pages, twitter accounts and go defend our police “publicly”. Dispute their claims how they justify “this brother” was assassinated since the brother was the one originally yielding and shooting a gun. Find this guy’s twitter and facebook page (King Yashua) , minister of defense and co-founder of the Nation of Liberation, AND THIS ORGANIZATION’S FACEBOOK/TWITTER ACCOUNTS. Go comment there, because they are the ones that need to hear you defend the Texas City officer. Also go to Texas City facebook / twitter account to show your support and get the Houston Chronicle as well. It’s time we took our country back. These radicals are hiding behind facebook and twitter and other social media sites to spew their hatred and violence. WAKE UP AMERICA – FIGHT FIRE WITH TRUTH!

Michael Brown was a bully – plain and simple. But the left already has a campaign against bullies and this one doesn’t fit their narrative.

Just more people being used by the system cause they are too stupid to know the truth – heck, they don’t even care about truth – they have an agenda. BO’s Amerika.

Honestly, sounded like Nancy Pelosi’s laugh. And coming from Joni, it’s ok. If it’s coming out of NP – can’t stand it.
I agree csbaby - its another example of the double standard when it comes to republicans versus democrats. I too like Joni - just didn't like her sounding like Nancy P. If I wasn't familiar with Nancy P. I don't think it would have bothered me at all. Perhaps (unknowingly) that is what is really bothering those who don't like her laugh.

There’s an incestious relationship with CBS and the White House. BHO has decided is part of removing God from our nation – because according to his own words – we are no longer a Christian nation.

The dog was doing his job – the police were the offenders in the dog’s mind. They entered his territory. Shame on the Round Rock police force. I hope they pay for this big time.
Has anyone else noticed how all the police seem to be shooting first and asking questions later?
