Dallas police officer Robert Powell is a jackass (and probably racist)

From the Dallas Morning News:

Jackass “officer” pulls his gun during a traffic stop, then takes 13 minutes to write a ticket. Oh yeah, Moats’ mother-in-law died while he waited for the ticket to be written.

Kunkle said Officer Robert Powell has been placed on paid administrative leave in connection with an incident last week in which he stopped a family rushing to visit a dying mother, detaining them for 13 minutes to write a traffic ticket.

During the traffic stop, caught on the officer’s in-car camera, Powell berated the driver, 26-year-old NFL running back Ryan Moats, and threatened him with arrest for running a traffic light.

“I can screw you over,” said Powell, 25. “I’d rather not do that.”

Powell drew his gun and yelled at her to get back in.

Moats and Collinsworth’s father went into the hospital, where they found Collinsworth had died, with her daughter at her side.
