Two White Cops Have Been Exonerated Of Charges For Racial Profiling After An Investigation Was Called Upon Them When Tyler Perry Alleged He Was Being Racially Profiled In February

Tyler Perry

After a four-month investigation by the Atlanta Police Department, an internal affairs officer reported, “I would submit the evidence shows the actions of both officers with the regard to the traffic stop of Mr. Perry were justified, lawful and proper.” In February of this year, media mogul Tyler Perry alleged that he was a victim of racial profiling when two white police officers pulled him over and questioned him for six minutes before letting him go without issuing a ticket. Perry was driving a white Porshe Panamera and explained that he’d made an illegal turn to see if the officers were in fact following him. Perry described the incident as hostile and said that he felt unsafe. One of the officers continued to “badger” him during questioning, Perry said.

The report from the internal investigation said the officers were working for the auto theft task force and one officer thought Perry’s $110,000 sports car was similar to one on a list of stolen cars. The officer said that as he turned around Perry made the illegal turn. One officer, a six-year Atlanta police veteran, told investigators that he didn’t stop Perry because he was black. “His vehicle had dark, tinted windows,” he said, according to the report. His partner, on the force for eight years, testified that he “didn’t look at the driver” before the traffic stop. Perry, whose name appears on his license as Emmitt Perry Jr., said on his Facebook post that he explained to the officers that he was trying to make sure he wasn’t being followed. One of the officers told investigators he was concerned about Perry’s mental state because of his “actions and body languages.” An African American officer who was called to the scene and arrived in a second patrol car, recognized Perry and asked one of the other officers whether he knew how famous Perry is. The car likely wasn’t stolen because “the guy was a billionaire,” the officer told his colleagues, explaining that Perry made movies.

On the recording of the radio traffic that night, one of the two white officers is heard to say, “I really didn’t know who that dude was.” The African American officer asked Perry what model year his Porsche was and figured out it was newer than the car police had listed as stolen. The officers said they never intended to issue a traffic ticket but wanted to check the car’s identification number. The white officers were admonished for not calling in the traffic stop to a dispatcher. The investigator also said it was debatable as to whether one of the officers should have reached into Perry”s vehicle in an attempt to turn off the engine. The report said that there was no dashboard camera in either patrol car. Police didn’t interview Perry personally, but used his Facebook statement as evidence, investigators said.

A representative for Perry said he was unavailable. “Tyler Perry is out of the country and unable to comment at this time,” said spokeswoman Keleigh Thomas.

  1. I believe it was a Racist Traffic Stop, because the police do that a lot in the south.They do it in the north to but not as much. When they are caught , it is all ways the same lie. It always , we didn't do it because they were Black , Bull Shit! I live in Cary where there are a lot of rich white people driving very nice cars. You never see any police men pull any of them over. Now blacks and Mexican it's a different story. They are stop 24 7 and they don't be driving real nice cars. It just the color of their skin.

  2. One of the po-po said he was concerned about Mr. Perry's action an body language. Bull! When you are Harrased by the law just because you have a nice car, how are you suppose to act? Sounds to me with the information that was given that Tyler was getting ready for a beat down if that BLACK officer had not arrived on the scene

  3. it was a good case of DWB (driving while black ) he was stopped because black people are not suppose to drive cars like that it had to be stolen, when you try to be a law abiding citizen, they find away to stick their claws in you because you are black, black people are not suppose to drive cars like that.if he were white they would drove by him and waved at him….

  4. No love for poor blacks or rich blacks…No matter what you have or don’t have, you (me) will always be N….. to them and whoever believes otherwise is CRAZY

    • Jody,

      I couldn’t agree with you more!!! Because after all we live in the great United States of Amerikkka!

  5. Lets be real, Yes racial profiling do happens,but in this case these two fine officers did there job correctly, Mr perry was not reconize as a big movie star,even if the police officers did reconize who you was after being stop, you broke the law period…Good job Officers.

    • I guarantee you had she been an emaciated White woman with blonde hair, blue eyes and some paid for breast, this turn would never have been on they radar.

      Charles if you’re a Black man, I sure hope you never get stopped by the police driving an expensive car they couldn’t afford to buy with 3 years of their salary. I’m sure you’ll learn real quick what a good job officers do. (SMH)

      • I am sure Charles is not a Black man by his comment. The comment also reveals that he is uninformed on policing procedures and the fact that the officers were admonished for not calling the license plate in to dispatch to check if it was stolen went over his head. All he saw was RACIAL PROFILING and wanted to add his 2 cents as if it doesn’t exist. Just that fact that they do that proves to me racism is alive and well.

        If you throw a rock into a crowd the only person that will scream is the one that got hit. Trust me.

  6. Stolen cars are tracked by their license plate when auto task force spot what they think is a stolen car. If a car follows me to long I will either turn to see if they follow or pull in a driveway if one is available. They had to follow him some ways before Tyler took the action he took, police or not. I am thinking the police had plenty of time to call the plate in, which would have resulted in finding the vehicle they were pursuing was not stolen. Sound like DWB to me. The dead giveaway is that the officers were admonished for not calling into dispatch.

  7. I am so sick and tired of stupid ass white people and their stupid ass racist ways. They didn’t call in dispatch because doing so would have proven TP was legit. What fun would that be? They would have no cause to harass him. And they do this crap knowing they will get away with it if there is an investigation. Come on, they don’t respect Barack Obama, why would they respect TP. Didn’t this same shit happen to Chris Tucker a few years back when he was driving in GA? Come to think of it, almost the same thing happened to my black ass down here in Hays County, Texas. Only thing is, I wasn’t driving a porche but I did spend the night in jail, for supposedly “running some lil ole lady of the road” according to Hays County PO PO. At least the black cop tried to educate their stupid asses, for all the good it did. Black people should start looking to turn the tides and give’em a taste of their own damn medicine. Damn, I wish Malcolm X was still alive. I am tired of this turning the other cheek crap.
