so we had a keg party last night. there were probably about 50-60 people in our little living room/dining room/kitchen area. there was music playing, and everyone was yelling over each other.

so, apparently, because i didnt see it happen, a (white) cop jumps out of the bushes next to our porch. there were a bunch of people out there, because the house was really hot. so a few people-idiots- were drinking outside. there was a white guy, who had a full cup of beer, and a black guy, who had a small amount of vodka in his cup.

so who do the cops go after? you guessed it, the black guy. hes getting arested, and reaches for his wallet, and then all of the sudden the cops say that he is resisting arrest. all of the sudden theres four more white cops there, all arresting this one guy. so they cuff him, and charge him with a minor in possession, as he is 19 years old. he didnt get taken to the station, but he got a ticket, and will probably have to do some community service.

now, thats pretty fair, because he did have some alcohol on him. this is the ****ed up part: the white guy who was drinking just disappears. he pretty much leaves, and the cops werent even paying attention to him. they only go for the black guy.

we got a noise violation ticket, too, but they didnt search the house and charge us all with serving alcohol to minors. so we did miss a bullet there.

so is this racism? do you have any similar stories? are the cops justified? how much did you have to pay for your noise violation? parties that got out of hand? ever got too drunk at a party?

rule #1 of house parties.

NO ONE IS TO BE OUT FRONT OF THE HOUSE

as soon as cops see someone that is underage drinking it is probable cause to break up a whole party. if no one was out infront of the house, no cops would have been involved.

that being said, i know how much of a bitch it is to keep people doing what they are supposed to at your house parties. its your house. if they dont want to follow the rules, toss their asses out.

no, im complaining that the cops only went after the black guy, whos name is omar, and let the white guy go. also that he was automatically resisting arrest for going for his wallet.

im perfectly fine with not getting charged myself, but i wasnt out there.

If you didn't get a fine for supplying alcohol to a minor, should you really care?
Your lucky to get away with a noise violation order.

If you bring anything up, it'll probably make things worse.

Edit:
I got a late post in there.

You have to think of it from the police's view too, what if he pulled something on them when he 'went for his wallet'?
If I were to fine someone or threaten arrest and seen them go for a pocket out of view, I'd be a bit edgy.

Letting them out the front of the house was a mistake, should have got them to only go out the back, damn, drinking age at 21 must suck ass, im glad its 18 here

It was racist because they only arrested the one black minor drinking but they didn't arrest the house full of white minors.

he didnt get arrested. he got a ABC law ticket or whatever its called. its a $50 max fine. TS said the cops didnt come into the house, so the cops didnt see anyone else drinking, so who else would they give tickets to?

since i wasnt there, i cant say for sure, the context, but if you have cops around you the LAST thing you do is start reaching into your pockets. cops dont like that kind of shit. theyd rather tackle you than let you pull a gun/knife on them and rightly so.

Well there you go, for all you know he could have pulled a gun on the cop.

Jeeez, just because he was black doesn't mean it's automatically racist. Once you know exactly what happened can you complain about it.

Considering the **** I've seen people get round here from the police that minor drinking thing is nothing.
I'm not a black guy but I am a Rastafarian and I get stopped for random searches a few times every month and the same is apparently true of evey other Rasta in Cambridge.
A black Ras I know got stopped randomly on his way home from work as an electrician and the police found a single spliff and a toolkit, which is somewhat an essential in his line of work. They somehow managed to charge him with possession of cannabis with intent to supply and going equipped to burgle on account of the toolkit...

^he wasnt the only black guy. my house mate is black. it probably was about half white, a quarter black, and a quarter everyone else.

I'm not sure if it's racism.. it might be, but you sure the cop just so happened to go after the black kid, and the white kid ran away? I mean, should he HAVE to arrest the white kid first just because he's white as well?

It really just sounds like there were too many kids and too little cops..

yea maybe, but he shouldnt have let either of them go. and there were no more than five or ten people out front, he wasnt completely outnumbered.
