    What would you do?

    Q: What do you do when you can't find any controversy, but you need some to stay in business because you don't have any other job?

    A: Follow the lead of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Congressional Black Caucus and most of the rest of the race industry.

    NAACP president in SC says he was racially profiled; body cam video shows otherwise

    TIMMONSVILLE, S.C. (WPDE) - Timmonsville NAACP President the Rev. Jerrod Moultrie posted on Facebook on April 13 that he was racially profiled when a Timmonsville police officer pulled him over for a traffic violation near his home on Harkless Court in Timmonsville.

    Moultrie was stopped for failing to use a turn signal and a problem with his license plate, according to police.

    Moultrie's post said, "Tonight, I was racially profiled by Timmonsville Officer CAUSE I WAS DRIVING A MERCEDES BENZ AND GOING HOME IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD."

    Moultrie recounted his conversation with the officer in the post.

    He said the officer asked him if there were any drugs inside his car.

    Moultrie said in that post the officer told him, "I am doing you a favor tonight not taking you to jail or writing you a ticket."

    Florence community activist Timothy Waters said when he saw Moultrie's Facebook post, it made him very upset that a black person could be racially profiled for driving a nice car in a nice neighborhood.

    Waters said he went to the Timmonsville Police Department to take a look at a copy of the officer's dash and body cam video.

    He added when he saw the video, he became even more upset, but not at the officer, rather at Moultrie.

    Waters said the body cam video totally contradicts what Moultrie posted on Facebook.

    He said the officer was very pleasant and kind to Moultrie during the entire four-minute traffic stop.

    "Once I got a copy of that body cam, it's as if he made the whole story up. And I felt like he set us back 100 years, because think about all of the racial profiling cases (that) are true," said Waters.

    Timmonsville Police Chief Billy Brown said Moultrie contacted him the morning after the traffic stop with claims that Moultrie had been racially profiled and mistreated by the officer.

    "He made a comment that the officer accused him of having drugs in the car. He said that his wife and grandchild was in the car. He asked them not to move because the officer looked as if he might shoot them or something. He also made mention that the officer continued to ask him about his neighborhood. Why was he in that neighborhood? And threaten(ed) to put him in jail in reference to something dealing with the registration to the vehicle," said Brown.

    Brown said he investigated, reviewed the body cam video and determined there was nothing to Moultrie's claims.

    "When I saw the video, I was shocked that someone who is supposed to be a community leader, a pastor, and head of the NAACP would just come out and tell a blatant lie. It bothered me. It really bothered me, thinking about the racial unrest it could've cost in the community and it's just troubling to me that someone who held a position like that would come out and just tell a lie."

    People act like being called "reverend" has some meaning. It doesn't automatically confer anything any more. A whole lot of people, especially blacks, have that title without it having anything to do with the traditional definition. Look at Al Sharpton, the race-baiter who fails to pay taxes, lies constantly and lied to become famous. Look at Jesse Jackson, a man who ran around on his wife regularly and used his name and notoriety to shake down companies to make himself rich while pretending to look out for his own race (in his case I think he started out genuine and then fell in love with the dollar sign). Look at Emmanuel Cleaver, a man whole lied (borne out by video evidence) about tea party people attacking a fellow Congressman on Capitol steps because of his race (not to mention a number of crimes Manny committed while mayor of this city).

    It's a title that holds no special status except in the minds of people who are fooled into thinking it does. It's like an honorary law degree given to somebody simply because of who they are and for being famous. The degree doesn't make the awardee an expert, a lawyer or a judge. So, too, "reverend" is a meaningless title for these people when it comes to expertise, purity or dignity. In most cases of famous people carrying the title, it wasn't even awarded by anybody. They just started calling themselves that, and the other perpetrators play along because they're doing it, too.

    "There was a time where I was a victim as a police chief. I was a victim of racial profiling," added Brown.

    Moultrie said he can't comment on the matter at this time, but referred WPDE to get statements from Timmonsville NAACP officers Kenneth McAllister and Henry James Dixon.

    Dixon and McAllister hadn't seen the body cam video as of Monday afternoon.

    "We don't condone the wrong that a person has done, we just don't believe he would have told a lie about something of that magnitude. We're not saying a person is incapable of lying. Just from his character we don't think he would have lied about something like that. In all fairness, to the NAACP and the community, we will watch the video and have a conversation with our NAACP President," Dixon said.

    McAllister and Dixon said Moultrie is a man of God who stands for what's right and he's worked very hard to re-establish the Timmonsville NAACP.

    I'm not going to argue that he's not a "man of God" or anything else. Maybe he was. Maybe he still thinks he is. But a "man of God" doesn't go around making things up like that to cause trouble when there is none.

    Morally he's going to have to take that up with his maker, assuming he genuinely believes in one. If he sinned, he needs to deal with it.

    Legally, he's a liar and a fraud. And he should be treated as such. Including by the people who will back him simply because of his race. They're the ones who stand the most to lose when somebody like this commits fraud and gets caught because it makes the next several dozen similar complaints automatically suspect.
