"A traveling dance troupe claims they were racially profiled by Texas cops, who cuffed the trio after suspecting something wrong with a 13-year-old white girl and two black men sharing the same car, according to a report. The teen, Landry Thompson, had just stopped at a Houston gas station with her dance partner, Josiah Kelly, 22, and their instructor, 29-year-old Emmanuel Hurd, when cops approached about 3 a.m. Sunday, the group told KHOU-TV. The group — from Tulsa, Okla. — tried to explain that they spent the day recording a dance video with a local group, Planet Funk Academy, but cops didn't buy their story."* Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian, John Iadarola, and Jimmy Dore break it down on The Young Turks. *Read more here from Joe Kemp / NY Daily News: http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/houston-cops-cuff-white-teen-black-men-visiting-video-shoot-article-1.1535803

Cenk Uygur is apart of the problem with racism in America. John and the lady can clearly see that they were PROFILED!!!

If you listen to what they say; I am detaining you, for your safety and officer safety. Anyone can “make a notaries letter!” White black Hispanic yes please keep looking into it!!!! The one young girl they had to ask her her name 9 10 times before she admitted she had been kidnapped for like 10 mnths!!!!! If there is one cop and 3 people what is safety, you take away their hands! You guys are dramatic at times. Hey give me your moms number if she is kidnapped and told DO NOT CALL YOUR MOM YOU THINK SHE IS GOING TO THE CORRECT NUMBER.

They would not have gone to the same extend if it was two white guys with a black girl but with that been said I would still investigate with either situation but they should have called the parents they did wrong by arresting those two guys and put the girl in child protective services this was outright wrong the parents of the girl should have been the first one to call

Boy scouts with guns do not qualify for being a policeman. They do not know the law, and they hurt people, make bad decisions, and ignore the truth. They're racist and looking for trouble.

These cops are the real criminals. Clearly this is a black and white thing. it's a damn shame you can't be a black man with a white girl, and not have problems from cops. Cops, I want to tell you. Not everyone is a criminal. So STOP treating everyone like one. OMFG!

If I were to man I would put a lawsuit against the police force simple as that they had authorization to take him to a dance studio and teach her how to dance the head legal documentation that's a call for her long-lost the log of e sued there anything like the old centurions of Rome back in the day actually The Reincarnation of Roman centurions that was the police force during the Roman times the centurions is reincarnation of the Roman centurions all over again because they were killing Hebrews then

That’s why they should investigate before detainment
Jim Porter (21 days ago)
I hope sometime in his life that Cenk is stopped in a foreign country simply because he's a big, ugly tan-skinned guy, then hand-cuffed, beaten and violated with a night stick, his testicles twisted and perhaps electrocuted, then thrown in a cell just so he knows what Black guys undergo, sometimes very often in their lives. Then maybe he'd know the outrage that true ethnic minority feel about the way their treated. His hypocrisy is palpable.

I'm pretty sure COPS did All their homework on both Black Males but seriously this is Totally wrong and out of Hand by jumping to conclusions instead of knowledge of the TRUTH and Officials are making it very hard for Blacks to trust to protect and serve because of actions such as these my Advice is Stop Labeling people by their Color...
Sandra Jordan (24 days ago)
And u can't Cover Up the TRUTH cause sooner or later it Will come forth what I will say is Lawsuit...
Sandra Jordan (24 days ago)
It doesn't take a Rocket scientist to know this Situation is totally about RACE but if she had of been with 2 White males No questions wouldn't of been asked clearly RACE cards..period
Sandra Jordan (24 days ago)
BUT overlooked documents from Parents it's totally about 13 yr. old being with 2 Blacks and their minds went left assuming the worst because she was with 2 Black Males jumping to conclusions is the REAL reason why a lot of Official doesn't deserve a BADGE but knowing the TRUTH this could of been avoided before this Situation got out of hand and I pray they're Terminated....Stupid
Emerita Barragan (24 days ago)
Nope nope nope they were racist, they should have called the mother and that’s all.
le ghost king (25 days ago)
I normally agree with cenk but all they had to do was use the teen girls cellphone to call her mother
txmack1 (26 days ago)
so did all three sue for false arrest? The law says it's an arrest if a reasonable person believes they have been arrested. Detained for a few minutes, verus held with council for 12 hours? They were arrested by racists cops.
Obrian Campbell (27 days ago)
If it were two white men who were with her, the cops would have thought that they all might be related.

With all the human trafficking going on as a LEO you had better ere on the side of safety. I would definitely call and speak to her mother and the notary if need be. Talk to the registration of the dance competition they are headed to. Not just let a situation go when a child is involved. You just can afford to do that these days.
Srbin Srbija (1 month ago)
I agree with Genk Uygur. Just check out how many kidnappers are out and how many kidds and girls missing every year. It is better to take few hours from someone's life to check what's going on than to not give a fuk... I would check too...doesn't mater if guys were black,white or green.

Regardless of race I'd never be with a minor without the chaperonage of the minor's parents. It protects me if there was ever any accusation made down the road.

Angie Welch (1 month ago)
DEFINITELY racially motivated, and they wanted to punish the young, white girl for being in the company of black men. This is just awful! If I was this girl's mother they wouldn't hear the last of me!!! They put these nice, young men in handcuffs and proceeded to place this young girl in CPS custody. All this, without calling the girl's mother or legal guardian. NOW...WHO'S THE CRIMINAL?!?!?!
blacqueknyte (1 month ago)
I don't think that the cops should have questioned anything at all regardless of ethnicity considering there was NO APB out on a missing 13 year old and the girl didn't give any indication that she was being held against her will.

Cenk is a passive racist just milking for money. I have listened to him several times have his words of the racism was fine first, if push came to shove Black person's dignity to his real feeling he is lost. Sociological Passive Bigotry.

Justifying the questioning allows for this. When does black people not get handcuffed when detained. Sounds about right from this reporters. Notice no black people on the staff.

“Assuming their guilty” you’ve obviously never encountered the American criminal justice system. You’re guilty until proven innocent and victims are always liars. Also you stated it wasn’t racial but then went on a racist rant.

flawless footstomper (2 months ago)
Real cops tap on the window and casually converse with all three to see if there is any wrongdoing using tactical questions without directly insulting anyone, as they do for others they know. Ask for proof of business dance card or where the dance contest etc... They presume to quickly, like upon first sight, therefore that fake false and unintelligent thought, actually there was no thought, gave the cops their own justification to arrest them. Officers need to extend civility to all people
Gods Child (2 months ago)
If she were with two white men they would not have arrested them, they’ve would’ve let them go on their way. They shouldn’t have been treated that way. They need to be checking these white guys with kids. How often do you hear about a black man kid napping white kids it’s almost always a white man. I’m white and I think white ppl have too many privileges that others don’t have because of their skin color.

So this guy feels that anytime he sees two males in the car with a girl they should be stopped. So, you can't take your daughter to school or to the store or anywhere without being questioned by the authorities.

I understand the concern from the cops but detaining the "BLACK" men for 11 hours is ridiculous/racist/haters. All they had to do is called the parents to find out if the story is true. RACIST F**KING COP

I don’t know where y’all been for the last I’ll know how many hundreds of years but I am a black man is always guilty until proven innocent black boy is guilty until proven innocent woman daughter doesn’t matter the guilty until proven innocent. That’s just the way it is and they know how to manipulate you to plead guilty even though you’re innocent they know how to do that they study they look Adam how to manipulate they got psychiatrist psychologist is that that that shows them what to do and they do it the big train for this is just how it is

Stupid people with the insane free reign to destroy, to totally to completely change the course of entire families. In some instances the entire country is affected. The Law needs to be held fully accountable for all and any of the mistakes that it makes, From the Cop to the Judges. Ignorance is not an excuse for the Law, Yet it is those who are put in place to uphold it the acts completely ignorant to it. Why?
