Mr. Taylor should move out of Torrance if he does not want to live in a safe nieghborhood. If he doesn't want to be stopped by the best police department in the United States then move to Compton where he can blend right in and he won't be stopped at all. He will just have to worry about the crooks instead of the Police. Torrance Police officers are very professional and usually have more then enough reason to stop someone. Mr. Taylor does not have any support from residence in the city so he had to call someone outside to come in to be his Pawn. I can't believe that anyone can claim that there is racism in America, have we forgotten who our President is? The race card has been overplayed and it's getting old people. I am sure if the suspect was described as a white man driving a Ford, he too would have been stopped and questioned. Continue to do your job Torrance Police, because when you do it well you will always get someone who will complain.

Here we go again,,,, wah, wah, wah....
There still is racism in America and just because
nobama is President doesn't mean that has changed. Nobama is a racist himself who also cries that cops profile,,,, you don't remember what he said several months ago? Poor black folks and hispanics are always being harrassed by the cops because of the color of their skin. He also said he had been treated the same way some yrs ago... That's what nobama said.

#4 Mar 12, 2010 we go again. This man FIT entirely the description of the APB put out and now complains because he was simply stopped and questioned due to his self-acclaimed "Blackness"?? You fake, joke, lame, joke of a Pastor. YOU make me sick and you go against everything you claim to represent...the Lord. If I were to be stopped for questioning due to my car and appearance matching the description of someone who just committed a REAL crime, I would NOT be upset. In fact, I would THANK the L.E. who stopped me for doing their job. I am ALL against corruption. I post all the time when L.E. break the law. But, when they do their job...and very well...I will support them. You pathectic ghetto punk...stop trying to get a payday and save some souls..THAT is why you are a pastor. YOU Sir, are the reason why others who are NOT black continue to have their opinions of your race...You perpetuate the race card and are teaching your child to be just like you. Sorry if the truth hurts, go put a band-aid on it and let mommy...if you can find her...give it a big kiss.

And...The Rev. Al....he is a doucher of the Nth degree. Anyone remember Latasha Harland? That is the black girl who totally LIED about being hurt by whites. But, that didn't stop ole' Al from shooting off his mouth before the truth came out. NO NO NO....If you act like a saggy pants, 40oz drinking, blunt smoking, dope dealing, color wearing, doo-rag pimping, strutting THIS day and will be treated as such. That is NOT racism...It is called this; "I know what you are and I won't tolerate in any longer". Nobody really cares if you are black....only YOU!!!

The sad thing about this Taylor douchee is that he honestly thinks the L.E. did something wrong. If they had pulled him over and lied about the reason, I would be on HIS side. However, he was pulled over due to his car, and then him, fitting the legitimate description of a wanted, current suspect in a violent crime against an elderly person. I cannot believe this guy, due to being a pastor??? and black and look at his face in the mirror of Christ and sleep at night. A REAL child of Christ would understand what happened to them...not try to pull some racial crapp in order to try and make some money. Please Torrance...fight this fake all the way. May God be with those who do right in their lives.

There is no such thing as racism in the United States anymore and let us get this fact straight. White people got this bum Obama into office and they knew he was half black and still elected him. Although everyone who voted for the idiot wish they had their vote back by now, the point is let us put this talk about racism to rest once and for all because no one cares anymore............its over with...............get over it............America elected a half neg*roe.........and unfortunately he is a lousy President.......not because he is black.........just because Obama is a halfwit. And guess what folks............Obama is such a bad President that there will never be another black President elected ever again because Obama ruined it for you black folks.

Unbelievable! Taylor and Al, you both need to quit wasting your time! Taylor, you were pulled over because your car just happened to match the description of the vehicle and suspect of a crime! Quit pulling the "race card" already! Get over it! TPD did their job and did the RIGHT thing!

Come on now!! It is the White man's fault that there are more African-Americans in prison that white folks. It is the White man's fault that more African-Americans are on welfare than White folks. It is the White man's fault that African-Americans do worse in school than White folks. How in the world Inglewood Police Chief Jackie Seabrooks, Justice Clarence Thomas, General Colin Powell, Secretary of State Connnie Rice, and President (idiot) Obama got elected must be because the White man screwed up somehow. If Blacks contine to blame the White man and cops for all their misfortune, they will never get out of gangs, drugs and he ghettos of South Central LA. Quit blaming the White man and the cops for your problems and look at yourselves. If the aforementioned leaders could rise to the highest levels in the country, so can you and your children.

Well, with Al Sharpton involved, any legitimacy to this man's claims just went out the window. What a joke. What a circus. How disgusting.

I'm glad the PD is looking out.

I'm white and have been pulled over, handcuffed, but in the back of the cop car, and let go by Torrance PD. Big deal.

TPD pulls everyone over. It is all about tickets and money. Race has nothing to do with it. They have black cops, Asian cops and Latino cops. They all pull you over too.

READ THE FACTS - Dummy gets stopped because HE and HIS CAR match the description of a violent felon -

Are the police just supposed to IGNORE this and not DO THEIR JOBS? I can understand him not being happy about being stopped, but if he had any sense, he would realize the police were doing their jobs - doing what is expected of them by society.

Maybe he really is the guy they were looking for, or maybe he loaned his car to another black man that did the kidnapping - and he thinks the best defense is a good offense, so he is trying to make a big media circus to get the attention off of him?

Yeah, let's make all of this the fault of the police - NOT!

I applaud the Torrance Police Department for following up on leands, and conducting investigations to solve crimes. Mr Dumb Dumb should be thankful he lives in such a nice community and get some understanding about how the real world works - and quit playing the blame game.

The real person he should be mad at is the guy (violent felon) who looks like him and drives a car like his who kidnapped an elderly person in Torrance!

Does he expect the Torrance Police Department to just give up and not look for this felon?

I expect them to relently pursue this violent felon until he is brought to justice.

Thank you TPD. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK. Ignore these noisemakers who try to divert attention from the real issues, while trying to make a name for themselves.
