    I’d like to think that racism wasn’t a factor in the ABC officer’s actions, but considering they’re working a bar right next to one of the biggest college campuses in the state, it is just about impossible that Martese Johnson was the first person they’ve caught with a fake ID. One thing that caught my eye was “obstructing justice without threats of force”. If Martese wasn’t threatening them, then what sparked the violence? Unless there are unknown details, sadly this story seems to be nothing other than a prime example of racism and abuse of authority. The frequency of stories like this in our country, lately is very bothersome to me.

    In the news now a days I see a lot of racial profiling, mainly towards black men. what these two abc officers did was very unacceptable. i feel as though they could have handle this situation in different way. Martese Johnson needs justice served.

    The fact that we have to deal with this sort of issue in 2015 amazes me. Racial profiling of the police is no secret these days and the fact that its still going on without any change to it after this many stories and the amount of deaths of innocent people that we’ve had should raise more concern that it already has.
