During Barack Obama’s war on cops, Black Lives Matter activists demanded police officers wear bodycams at all times. This is the second time this week that we’ve reported about an incident where a black American was pulled over by a white police officer and falsely claimed they were mistreated or racially profiled, only to discover that the body-cam footage told a very different story. Last week, a woman posted a tearful video to Facebook, explaining how she was racially profiled and mistreated by a police officer who pulled her over…until the bodycam footage was released.

Now that Barack Obama is no longer president, can we stop with the obsession with racial division? Does everything have to be about race? Can we just go back to the way it used to be before the “HOPE” and change hate president?

SCNow– A man identified as the president of the Timmonsville NAACP chapter said in a Facebook post that he was racially profiled by a Timmonsville police officer. A body cam video provided by the Timmonsville Police Department contradicts his claims.

The Rev. Jerrod Moultrie, whose Facebook page says he is still the chapter’s president, posted on April 13 that he was racially profiled by a Timmonsville officer because he was “driving a Mercedes Benz and going home in a nice neighborhood.” It is unclear what Timmonsville neighborhood he was referring to.

In the post, Moultrie recapped his conversation with the officer during a traffic stop that occurred on April 12. He said the officer stopped him for failure to use a turn signal and then asked if he had drugs in his car.

After being asked for his license and registration, Moultrie said in the post, he opened the “glove box” in his car and told the officer, “This is a new car I just purchased and all I have is the bill of sale insurance card and registration from the car I am transferring tags.”

According to Moultrie’s post, the officer then says “Ok, where you work and who car is this and why you in this neighborhood.” Moultrie tells the officer where his house is located and that he is a pastor, the post said. The officer responds by saying, “And I am the Bill Gates,” according to Moultrie’s Facebook post.

Moultrie continues his recount of the interaction by saying the officer again questions him about why he is in that specific neighborhood in Timmonsville. And after reviewing his information, the officer supposedly tells Moultrie that his tags are registered to another vehicle and he should not drive the car until he gets the situation straightened with the DMV. Moultrie said the officer told him he was doing him a favor for not taking him to jail or writing him a ticket.

“This officer thought he had some drugs or something cause since when 2 patrol car stops one car on a turn signal issue,” Moultrie said in the post. “Guess I can’t be a pastor and can’t drive a Mercedes Benz and live in a nice neighborhood. Well you know as president of Timmonsville NAACP he stop the wrong car tonight cause someone needs to answer for this behavior…”

Moultrie’s post was later removed from Facebook.

Unfortunately, for the reverend, and alleged NAACP president,  the police officer who pulled him over was wearing a body-cam and recorded the entire incident.

Here’s a screenshot of the Reverend Jerrod Moultrie’s post on Facebook describing a completely different scenario than the one that actually occurred, as evidenced by the video above.
