Rochester woman accuses Gates Police of racial profiling

A Rochester woman says she was the victim of police brutality because of the color of her skin. Terara Harris says a Gates police officer discriminated against her, because she's African-American.
Harris claims she was approached by a Gates police officer while she was resting in her car in a parking lot on Chili Avenue. She says she was then "handled inhumanely" by the officer.
Gates Police say Harris was arrested for various charges of vehicle entrapment and for resisting arrest. They say her car's registration was suspended and she refused to get out of her car. It happened about a month ago. Harris says she did nothing wrong.“He just had his mind set that he was going to brutalize me.”
Now, Harris has filed a complaint against the gates police department. The chief says the department has no history of racial profiling. Gates Police Chief David DiCaro said,“It troubles me when we have community organizations trying to raise their prominence on the back of an issue that has taken place that kind of bothers me.”
Activist Myra Brown says this happens all the time.“This is not about an individual solution; this is about systemic change that has to happen.”
Chief DiCaro met with Harris today to hear directly from her. The chief says he hasn't made any decisions yet because he's still investigating this case.
Harris says people need to know what's really going on.“I just want to let people know that I'm not afraid to speak up about this.”
Harris will be in court on May 7 to face various charges including resisting arrest.

Just a reminder. So how did that turn out? Officers fired? Awarded millions? No. Determined to be a nut. Yes. Police record. Yes.

Harris, aka Caprice Classic, can't do anything like a normal person. Always drama. She's nuts.
At least now, no matter how many times she changes her name, we know the real person behind the insane rants. Her credibility has dropped to zero. LOL.
Someone should post the police incident report.

She went insane yesterday. Went so far as to insinuate that someone should shoot Steel City. Steel called her out and CC got even crazier. Good job SCS for exposing CC for the troublemaker and fraud that she is.

YES....Calls for a much needed Justice department investigation for the UNLAWFUL brutality and arrest of the brave victim that endured the violence of one Martijn Verbakel and David Sapienza. We know the government monitors the internet so here we go..........

There is no STATUTE OF LIMITATION ON THIS EARTH, aside from the court of the unrighteous law.
VENGEANCE COMES WHEN ONE LEAST EXPECTS IT.....

Make sure to congratulate and THANK Martijn Verbakel, due to the ABUSE he enacted upon this INNOCENT woman.
She is totally DISABLED. Gets to sit back with her feet up just like a QUEEN.
Shake his hand and pat him on the back.
The INNOCENT victim of Martijn Verbakels police ABUSE has early retirement in the form of FULL DISABILTY!
The full story about the police ABUSE and COVER UP will soon be told NATIONALLY. Stay tuned...
#11 Sep 2, 2013
FYI: Before the ABUSE the innocent woman was a productive member of society.
So make sure you thank Martijn Verbakel

ALL of this is being RECORD......
Why not give up the TRANSCRIPTS?
Too many reasons to overturn the Bogus trial and conviction, huh?
#13 Sep 2, 2013
Mugshots. We need mugshots of Harris, oh sorry, of Caprice Classic.
Sounds like she really got BURNED by the PD. LOL. Was that mean?
We'll get a second set when she gets booked by RPD this time. This would make a great episode for COPS. Screaming, yelling, banging her head on the window. Maybe some pepper spray. "That crack pipe ain't mine".

IT'S A FEDERAL OFFENSE TO TAMPER WITH GOVERNMENTAL DOCUMENTS SUCH AS THE TRANSCRIPTS FROM THE FIRST HEARING.
DOCUMENTATION WAS DELETED.

"Harris claims she was approached by a Gates police officer while she was resting in her car in a parking lot on Chili Avenue(loitering). She says she was then "handled inhumanely" by the officer(just like that? no words where exchanged?).
Gates Police say Harris was arrested for various charges (go figure) and for resisting arrest (typical)"
always pulling the race card or blaming whitey when they break the law and get caught.

The enemy has nothing BUT hate, lies and consistent violent attacks.
The enemy's ONLY true purpose is to STEAL, KILL and DESTROY.
Ask yourself, is your purpose to uncover lies or hinder the truth?
One can recognize the devil by his actions, he's full of attacks.

I think the RPD need to install video cameras and mics on their persons, to protect the RPD from false claims of harassment, racial profiling and police brutality made by them. So when they come out with ridiculous claims they where " racially profiled" when caught doing illegal activity, we can all watch the video, and see the officer was NOT racially profiling ect ect, and then they can have more charges of falsifying a police report and rack up more charges on them.

No one is protected from their just DUE!
#23 Sep 2, 2013
OK, this woman has snapped. Gets called out for being a loser, pulling the police brutality crap, and tries to bury the comments with tons of rants.
This is getting funny. Well, not for her, but for the rest of us. Happy Labor Day, all.

MARTIJN VERBAKEL AND DAVID SAPIENZA FILED FALSE REPORTS AND BRUTALIZED AN INNOCENT FEMALE.
THEY SEXUALLY ABUSED HER BY SQUEEZING HER BREASTS AND RUBBING BETWEEN HER VAGINA, UP AND DOWN HER LEGS.
IF YOU TAKE THE TIME TO REVIEW THE TRANSCRIPTS FROM THE HEARING, THEY MAKE NO SENSE AND ARE EXTREMELY CONTRADICTORY.
THANKS FOR EXPOSING THIS. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL BE HAPPY TO SEE THIS LEVEL OF HARRASMENT.
THE VICTIM REALLY DID STAND HER GROUND. THEY DID EVERYTHING TO SCARE HER INTO TAKING A PLEA AND SHE REFUSED BY GOING TO TRIAL.
CHECK YOUR FACTS BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO EMBARRASS SOMEONE WITH COURAGE.
It's a FEDERAL OFFENSE to tamper with court documents.
