Viral ‘Basketball Cop’ Caught Beating Young Man Over Bicycle Infraction

Officer Bobby White became an online sensation in 2016 - up to and including being memed by Police the Police - for exposure to a 911 call a few noisy basketball and selecting compassion over escalation.

In 2016, officer White skilled an event after a neighbor called 911 to report kids playing basketball.

When White showed up, he noticed there was no reason for him to be there and rather than writing tickets, stopping and frisking, or beating and arresting the youngsters , White asked if he could play ball.

"Can you think that somebody called complaining that youngsters are playing basketball within the street?" Mr. White asks within the video recorded on his dashboard camera.

"But I ain't got no problems with it."

With his dashcam rolling the whole time, White's community policing was recorded then uploaded by the local department afterward.

This cop went viral for all the proper reasons and therefore the "Basketball cop" became a star in his town.

Johnson, now 21, was just a child when White showed up that day.

ESPN even did a canopy story on White and had basketball stars sell to ease tensions between police and black youths.

White rode the "Basketball cop" stardom for years with nobody knowing any different.

Chanae Jackson, a true realtor and Gainseville resident, whose son had a troubling encounter with police, knew something others didn't .

In May, someone sent Jackson a video of officer White and he wasn't using compassion like his other viral video.

After George Floyd was killed, this compelled Jackson to release the video.

Officer White is now going viral again but this point , he won't be happening ESPN. consistent with a report in NY Times, with just a click on Facebook, she depart an uproar that stripped away not only Mr. White's image because the face of what good neighborhood policing should be but also the idea - embraced by liberal-minded reformers in Gainesville and across the country - that fixing racial bias might be as simple as retraining officers and that specialize in "Community policing."

"The culture of police departments creates an environment where there are not any real consequences for these officers," Jackson wrote.

When we check out the rationale for White stopping the young man within the video below, it's amazing that he ever played ball with the youngsters within the first place.

Sure, it's pretty irresponsible to ride a bicycle through a stop sign, but it's an act likely witnessed by many cops each day in neighborhoods across the country who choose to not detain and subsequently beat the people that roll in the hay .

White wasn't one among those cops a minimum of not in 2014 when the video below happened .

As the video shows, White has the young man handcuffed and ahead of his cruiser for the act of riding a bicycle through a stop sign.

Being stopped for riding a bicycle to a store in the dark naturally frustrates the otherwise entirely innocent man.

When the person says he doesn't want to take a seat on the bottom , officer White proceeds to slam his face into the hood of the cruiser, multiple times.

The video would never see the sunshine of day until this year, which subsequently put the basketball cop's momentum on stand still.

It is unfortunate that White conducted himself in such how because the basketball situation happened two years after and showed that he may have changed.

We feel that folks can change and if White were to apologize for this example and make amends with the person who he did this to, his work of bridging the divide between the police and therefore the policed should continue as America needs this quite ever immediately .

This is especially important considering White went on to found a nonprofit aimed toward easing relations between police and black youth in his city, and even drew the eye of NBA star Shaquille O'Neal, who came bent play basketball with local teens.

People can change and White's actions since that 2014 video certainly appear as if that happened with him.

I'm case in point of this as i used to be convinced to try things during my time within the USMC that likely led to innocent people suffering. 

In Anambra, three people were killed as they clashed with the police.
