Huff Post - The deputy who racially profiled former Atlanta Hawks forward Mike Scott, leading to the NBA player’s arrest in 2015, has been fired from his job at the Banks County Sheriff’s Office, a spokesperson said Monday.
Scott faced the possibility of a 25-year sentence after being found in possession of MDMA and marijuana following a traffic stop in July 2015. But in a ruling last month, judge Currie Mingledorff said that the stop that led authorities to find the drugs was “unjustified” and racially motivated, and that the evidence obtained was thus not usable in court.
The judge discovered that while Banks County is listed as more than 90 percent white, the vast majority of people Register arrested in recent years have been minorities ― a disparity he called “truly shocking” and evidence that Register “did not enforce the law in a racially neutral manner” in Scott’s case.
Mike Scott would only have those tattoos if he used a LOT of MDMA, so I'm assuming even though he got away with it this time due to a little loophole called racial profiling (sarcasm, before you freak out) he won't get away with it forever.
I mean, seriously...these tattoos are absurd.
The police officer who was fired deserved it. Mike Scott deserves being called out for using MDMA and marijuana, and for having stupid tattoos. Fair play.
