I dont know why! Torrance Police Dept keep getting away with so much stuff a few years back this guy i went to school with was arrested and taken to the torrance police station for drunk in public outside a club in redondo beach. He was beaten because he wont shut up and pepper spray. Now this is one of many cases that Torrance Police abuses their power and someone needs to do something about it!...

da noose is condign for dat boy dat runneth the fields away from his masuhh. we masuhhs oughta feeda dearths of leftovah swine feed for deez black cotton wielders/laborers. in this case, the boy, premediatuth a crime unto the good peoples of torrance, cryan' with his daughtuh...the one that will be sold $5 (in Confederate bills) to whomever finds hurhh service approbate: a colored gurl thatuh can cook, and survh a decent white woman. this colored is to be sold when huuh buurth certificate denotes the years of 18 years lived on the good earth, that Ol' mighty God of the King James has sent us!
if coluuhed boys run 'round again, these monkehs from Africa will meet with 9mm exiting from barruhlls of Beretta 92FS, standuud issue for the peace-keepuhs of Torrance. i reckon that the much smaller brain sizes of these 'barely evolved from apes' will do muchuuh splattering on the good ol' roads of torrance. but, nevertheless, we cannot have us, these cotton pickin' rabble rousuuhs, loitering 'round torrance ya here.

Some of the remarks on here are just ignorant and close minded. Amazing how being on a message board on a computer screen allows peoples true feelings to come out.

Yes he probably exaggerated in the racial profiling part, but i'm assuming that those who are constantly defending the police like they can do no wrong have never had a bad expierence with the police ever in their lives. Bottom line is, some cops are pricks and jerks and white, black, mexican, or asian they will make your life a living hell if their bored regardless of how polite you are to them.

Like I said earlier, this guy probably exaggerated with the racial profiling talk, but all that "go back to compton" talk is just as ignorant if not even more ignorant.

I'm white btw if that matters for my opinion.

I strongly support a full fledged federal investigation of the Torrance police department regarding their illegal and unconstitutional practice of racial profiling. Clearly the Torrance police are out of control and need to be carefully watched by both the FBI and our government.

Please do your research & talk facts when you speak. LATASHA HARLINS was killed in '91 by a Korean store owner. Use whatever ever slight intelligence you may have & Google it!

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 chicken..in THIS day and age...you 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!!!

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.
You must be white. Torrace is notorious for profiling blacks. If you think racism is dead you are living with your head in the sand. Many people who voted against Obama did so for racial reasons. You should get out more.

Torrance police are notorious for profiling blacks. Racism is alive and well. Having a black president doesnt mean it isn't. Many people hate obama due to his skin color. You need to read more and watch documentaries, and leave Torrance. If you think racism is dead then you are asleep.
