Black Man Steven Hildreth Jr. Praises Officers After He was Pulled Over Without Incident … “Police officers are people, too.”
IMAGINE THAT … THE BLACK LIVES MATTER MESSAGE REALLY ISN’T TRUE FROM THE MOUTH OF A BLACK MAN …
A black Arizona man, Steven Hildreth Jr. posted on Facebook an incident he has with police officers and praised then for their professionalism. The Tucson police pulled over the black man because he was driving with a headlight out. It also turned out that Hildreth was wearing a hoodie and was packing a Glock in his car. According to race baiters and the Black Lives Matter agenda folks, this black man should be dead, killed at the hands of racist cops. The story could not be more different. The police asked him if he had any weapons and Hildreth replied, “yes sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.” Read the entire story and his Facebook account. of what happens when you simply act with respect. The Facebook post has gone viral, for all the right reasons!
Here is the message from Steven Hildreth, “I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities. Maybe … just maybe … that notion is bunk. Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.”
However, what is truly pathetic and sad are all the comments that proclaim Steven Hildreth Jr. to be an “uncle Tom” and “house ni**er” for simply behaving and acting with class and respect. This speaks volumes to those who posted the comments.
“The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons. ‘Yes, sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket,” Mr. Hildreth recalled in the post, which amassed more than 176,000 shares since Tuesday.
“The officer explains for his safety and mine, he needs to disarm me for the stop. I understand, and I unlock the vehicle,” he alleged. “I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it. Lead officer asks me to step out, and I do so slowly. Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U I’m running on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard.”
“Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date,” Mr. Hildreth wrote. “Officers return with my Glock in an evidence back, locked and cleared. ‘Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning. Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.’ I smile. ‘Thank you, sir.’”
“I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities,” Mr. Hildreth argued. “Maybe … just maybe … that notion is bunk. Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.”
