Justice For All Police Relations - James Blake

Updated on September 11, 2015

James Blake

The Question

Why do minorities tend to have negative feelings and mistrust of the police?

Daily news reported: “James Blake, former tennis star, slammed to ground and handcuffed outside midtown hotel by white NYPD cops who mistook him for ID theft suspect.”

So you are a police officer and believe you find the person wanted for identity theft. You arrest them, right? Do you tackle and slam to the ground the suspect and tell them to shut up? Were they presenting a threat to you? Did they engage in a physical confrontation where they felt their life was in danger?

James Blake-tennis star. Mistaken for an identity theft criminal. The identity of the suspect for credit theft was mistakenly charged with identity theft. The true criminals face we do not know now did we see his name and image plastered all over television. Interesting.

Blake (35 year old athlete) stated: "You'd think they could say, 'Hey, we want to talk to you. We are looking into something.' I was just standing there. I wasn't running. It's not even close...It's blatantly unnecessary."

Blake reported to the media, when tackled and arrested, he was on his way to make a corporate appearance for Time Warner Cable at the U.S. Open of all events. Blake revealed that the officers did not identify themselves but instead one of the officers charged straight at him bouncing him off of the concrete on E 42nd street. Blake was cleared once he informed the officers of misidentification requesting officers check his license in his left pocket and his Open credential that was in his back pocket. The department apologized.

Blake took the incident public because he felt compelled to highlight police use of excessive force to speak for those who do not have his resources and could be victims of this without the ability to draw media attention.

Officer are supposed to enforce the law not become judge, jury, and executioner.

What can be done to heal the relationship between the police and the public?

Blake's Media Conversation

An average day in the life

Can we exist as a society with two sets of rules for society members?

Not all police offers are bad offices. We need order but not abuse of power.

ABC7 news reported, Dylan Roof, executor of 9 people attending bible study at a church in South Carolina, had an officer go out and buy him a burger from Burger King because he hadn't eaten in a while.

Unlawful Arrest. What should I charge him with? Just say coke test
