Here's a quick lesson for all police officers: Pulling over the president of the Dallas NAACP branch could be hazardous to your career. Just ask Dallas County sheriff's Deputy Mike Baker, who was ordered to be transferred out of patrol last month even though two separate investigations exonerated him of any wrongdoing.

Some people just piss me off. He thinks that just because he is the president of a club, he can do whatever he wants...
I wouldn't call the NAACP a club..anyway shonds like the Sheriff handled this all wrong, and that is one reason why I'm not to fond of elected Sheriffs, no difference that anyother politician, just trying to protect his butt to get votes.

I dont care what you are president of, it doesn't give you the right to disrespect the laws of your country. If the man with the gun and the badge says you are under arrest then you have seriously f***ed up and need to start listening. Not whine about making a phone call.
Now, I wonder if the officer was black if the same investigation / punishment would have happened or no?

Yessir exactly. After reading the artice, it sounds like the man that got pulled over was abusing his title.
Yesterday we've sinned, today we move towards God. Touch the sky....love and respect...Safe Star!

Just reading the article, sounds to me like the "Race Card" got tossed out rather quickly.
Expired license plate: Get the ticket, get the license plates renewed, go to court, show the judge, case dismissed. That's the usual scenario. People forget about license plates all the time. It's not a big deal.
The driver of the mini-van, Mr. NAACP, turned it in to a big deal by being an asswipe. The deputy acted prudently and within the scope of his job. Any bets it's all recorded somewhere on a dash-cam.
As for Sheriff Lupe whatever - she oughta be fired for not backing her officer. In all likelihood, she's a politician and not a cop, and has not gawddamn business wearing a badge in the first place.

Quoting MDorBust (Reply 6): We actually use window stickers here in Texas for vehicle registration. Nitpicking.
Didn't know that (I ain't from 'round there ya know ). My reply is the same, the principal is the same. Go get the damn sticker renewed and STFU. The judge'll likely throw the ticket out if you can appear with all your ducks in a row.
