Dallas Cop May have Detained NFL Player Because He's Black VIDEO
A Dallas police officer is under investigation after he detained a NFL player who had been on his way to see a dying relative. Houston Texans running back Ryan Moats was rushing to the hospital to see his dying wife’s mother. Dallas Officer Robert Powell refused to let Moats go into the hospital after running a red light. The relative died while Moats was held in the Hospital parking lot.
The Moatses, who are black, said they can’t help but think that race might have played a part in how Powell, who is white, treated them.
“My mother-in-law is dying! Right now! You’re wasting my time!” Moats reportedly screamed at the uninterested peace officer. “I don’t understand why you can’t understand that.”
