There's so many personal stories that have been being shared that e think that people might have told, you know, friends, close friends or family members. But now they're they're starting Thio. Uh, you know, come out and talk about, um you know, the way that they've been affected over over there over their lifetime and in the description for black is beautiful. You actually right on the page Quote As someone who has personally dealt with the abuse of power by the police, this recent turmoil the country is facing has hit home for me. You continue as I write this, I contemplate how the country can move forward. How we assess the people can create change and what it will take for everyone to move forward with a common respect for one another. For us, we feel that this is our contribution to a step. Can you share your story as Thio? What happened with the abuse of power? Well, I've been dealing with that for quite some time, so I grew up in a pretty rich neighborhood for high school, had a nice Mustang, you know, all that type of stuff. So I used to get racially profiled all the time dealing with the police in Elk Grove, California, where you just get pulled over just because, you know, um, But outside of that, the experience of what I was talking about dealing with the overall initiative was a situation that happened to me and one of my friends, and basically we had went to a party fight, breaks out of the party, some gunshots ring off, we end up leaving, and we realized that we had friends there. So we decided to turn around, make sure everybody is OK. In the process of that, we find some of our associates that we are obviously cool with, and one of their friends have been stabbed. Um, the associates that we found, you know, they couldn't take the person to the hospital for, you know, whatever reasons they had. So me and the other individual, my friend, ended up taking this guy to the hospital. So we hop on the freeway driving 95 MPH, my friends in the back seat trying to keep the guy wait because he's lost a lot of blood and then we get him to the hospital. So the nurse comes to us and basically, you know, they get him out, the car, all that type of stuff. She comes back maybe 20 minutes later, tells us if it had been five minutes longer than he would have died. Like he would have bled out in our car. Eso she was thinking us for, you know, getting him in here as quickly as we could. That type of stuff. Um, from there, you know. Okay, well, the police are gonna show up to come talk to you guys, ask you some questions. Okay, Great. So police come start asking those questions, you know, Where were we? Do we know the individual? You know, the typical, the typical questions. But then thes thes questions start turning Maurin toe suspicion than just asking us to verify information. So then the next thing that you know, much car is towed. And then me and my cousin are cuffed in the backseat of the police vehicle. Mind you were not under arrest. They haven't read us our rights or anything like that. They tell us that we're in cuss for their safety. So at that point we get taken. Thio Ah, police station. You know We're not able. We haven't been able to contact family members. We haven't been able to talk to anybody. We don't know what's gonna happen to us. We have the fear of being the back seat of a police car. We don't know where we're going. We don't know these gentlemen. They haven't put us under arrest. What are they going to do with us at this point? So we get Thio the police station, they throw us in a sale and they keep us in the cell for the entire night. Um, basically still berating us for questions. They don't offer us any phone calls and offers and water, food or anything along those lines. So we basically spend 24 hours with in a sale. Then the next morning, police offer a police officer comes, opens up the sale hands through my keys, tells me to clean the blood out of my car and sends this one hour away. So I always tell people and, you know, outside of family members that I know that our law enforcement, um, dealing with the police and, um, you know, there's always that argument. Well, there's good police to, you know, not all police are bad and we understand that you know that zone understanding that obviously there's good people everywhere. But I can tell you this is that I've never met a good police in my life. And I wish that we lived in a society where story like that wasn't rare, but it happens often.
