    Default Shame on the Calgary Police.

    Did anyone else watch "To Serve and Protect" tonight?

    Well, the police cruiser heard of a shooting in the East, and the suspect was driving a Prelude. So being ignorant, the policeman begins tailing an Asian driving an Integra. After a couple blocks of tailing, he decides to pull him over as a "suspect", despite the plates checking out. When he pulls the Integra over, him and his partner put the driver and passenger in cuffs, search the car, run the ID's and questioned the two Asians. Not only this, but the officers call for backup from 2 other cruisers, and get the helicopter unit to come just to see whats up.
    As you can guess, these 2 had nothing to do with the shooting.

    A very large goes to the police for their effort in this case. They do good work alot of the time, but the American influence of racial profiling is starting to come into Canada...
    If these two guys in the Integra weren't Asian, the cops wouldn't have even looked twice.

    yeah there is actually quite a bit of racial profiling in canada. me and a couple of buddies were out one night, kind of late. we were all drunk, and my friend's brother kicked us out of the house. the cops came asking us what were were doing, etc. and when he went to check out everyone (to make sure there were no warrants) he asked all my friends their nationality's and stuff. when we told my friend's bro, he said that it was illegal for them to ask what nationality they are. so my friend phoned and filed a complaint with the cops. another

    Its great that they aired it, makes the cops look like jackasses and raises awareness to these sorts of problems

    Cops are dicks man... I was on Crowchild one day driving the speed limit. I was gonna get in a lane to turn off but no-one would let me in so I pulled out to the other lane, sped up and pulled back into the lane I wanted and slowed back down. I got freakin busted for going 93kmh when there were other trucks flying by me. The fackin cop was like yea we were following you for like 3-4 km. So basically they followed me because of the car i drive

    I'm all for cops doing their jobs, but the cuffs were ridiculous, especially since the plates turned out ok.

    To serve and protect is funny. most of the time they are either investigating drunk people who are going 'yeaaaaa!!! i'm on tv!!!!!!!'. You never see that on Cops! haha

    metal detectors are nothing new!! I remember the good old days at coconut Joes when you would get there at 9, get a bracelet and have cheap drinks all night!!!(1.50 highballs) In the two years or so that I went there, I dont remember seeing a single fight! More clubs should have detectors. Too many people packing heat nowadays!

    If these two guys in the Integra weren't Asian, the cops wouldn't have even looked twice.
    If he was tailing the car how could he tell the driver was asian? I assume it was dark out as well correct?

    Maybe he confused an integra for a prelude, I mean for gods sake it COULD happen. One guy on this site said he could confuse a 550 Maranello for a Camaro!

    Just because someone is driving a legally obtained car doesnt make them innocent of all other possible crimes. If they had the car legally isnt there still a possiblity they shot someone?

    Oh, calling backup on two possible murderers, it racial profiling people!

    Hyperinvestigating arabs going through canada/us borders is profiling, this seems like a case of 'investigating' to me. Police usually have to do these 'investigations' to solve crimes...

    He looked at his face thru the rear view mirror on the drivers side, then said on the radio "The driver and passenger are both Asian, can I get a plate check?"

    Ok lets assume he did know. That still proves nothing.

    Looking for two asian males driving a japanese sports car....
    so they pull over two asian males driving a japanese sports car....

    what's the problem?????
    You'd prefer if they were pulling over anybody in a sports car???
    Racial profiling, although not nice, is effective...
    It's part of the suspect's description....
    I bet if the suspects were white, and driving a japanese sports car (especially if they were riced???), the cops would have pulled over white guys!
    big deal... some of you are hypersensitive... and you should examine the behaviour of your own friends and family before calling other people racist..
