Princeton Professor Imani Perry is protesting against an arrest during a traffic stop last Saturday (Feb 6). Dr.Perry says she was discriminated against my two white police officers because of her race; she ended up handcuffed to a table at the local police station.

The professor of African-American studies was allegedly driving at 67 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone, at around 9:30 am. So when the two officers—a man, and a woman—stopped her, they found that her driving privileges were suspended, and a warrant was issued for her arrest for two unpaid ticket violations stemming from 2013.

Here is her complaint.

Yesterday, on my way to work, I was arrested in Princeton Township for a single parking ticket three years ago…

The police refused to allow me to make a call before my arrest, so that someone would know where I was…

There was a male and a female officer, but the male officer did the body search before cuffing me and putting me in the squad car.

“We already know it IS the standard protocol for people in poor Black, Indigenous, and Latino communities to experience disproportionate police surveillance, harassment, violence, and punishment,” she wrote. “That is the graver injustice. I’m asking you to understand that my experience, and my feelings, are directly and intimately tied to that larger truth. We unquestionably have a serious problem with policing in this society.”

What are your thoughts on Dr. Perry’s claims? IDK, but the comments from the YT folk in response to her post definitely indicate some deep racial tensions out there.....
