Katherine Torres was driving back to work from her lunch break when she was pulled over by Sgt Michael Karczewski in Wisconsin. She claimed it was a ‘black and white’ case of racial profiling. However dash cam footage of the incident showed that she was clearly pulled over because she was not wearing a seat belt.
What is it with the racial profiling claims?
In her testimony she stated that she was asked to provide her social security number, license and insurance information all because of the color of her skin. What? She failed to realize that asking for a social security number has been a requirement of Wisconsin law since 2003.
She was also charged with driving without a front license plate, which like the seat belt law, is also a necessity in Winconsin.
So much for racial profiling!
Better luck next time, Katherine!
Conservative Tribune reports:
A Wisconsin woman who accused police of racially profiling her has changed her story after footage from the policeman’s dash cam completely debunked her fabricated story.
Katherine Torres was reportedly driving back to work from her lunch break on May 31 when a Greendale police officer pulled her over. Torres later filed a complaint with the police department on Friday, June 2, claiming Sgt. Michael Karczewski had racially profiled her by asking about her citizenship, according to TMJ4.
