Armed Black Man Debunks Police 'War On Blacks' Myth With Routine Traffic Stop

An Arizona man’s Facebook post describing a routine traffic stop, in which he was let off with only a warning, has gone viral for challenging the narrative that police are waging a war on minorities.

Steven Hildreth, a Tucson author and Army veteran, related his tale in a social media post that has since accumulated over 261 thousand likes and over 160 thousand shares.

In the post Hildreth describes how he complied with officers’ orders after he was pulled over for having a broken headlight, and how he notified officers that he was armed.

“The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons,” Hildreth says.

“Yes, sir,” Hildreth replies. “I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.”

The officer asks Hildreth to step out, asks for his gun, and proceeds to run his license.

“Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date. He goes back to run my license. I know he’s got me on at least two infractions. I’m thinking of how to pay them,” Hildreth says he remembers thinking.

“Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning,” the officer told Hildreth. “Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.”

Hildreth says his routine interaction goes to show how the police “war on minorities” claim has been grossly exaggerated by social justice warriors.

“I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities,” Hildreth states.

“Maybe…just maybe… that notion is bunk.”

Anti-police social justice warrior groups, in particularly the Black Lives Matter movement, have been blamed by police and others for inciting hatred of cops and creating a volatile atmosphere.

Read Hildreth’s Facebook post below:

So, I’m driving to my office to turn in my weekly paperwork. A headlight is out. I see a Tucson Police Department squad vehicle turn around and follow me. I’m already preparing for the stop.

The lights go on and I pull over. The officer asks me how I’m doing, and then asks if I have any weapons.

“Yes, sir. I’m a concealed carry permit holder and my weapon is located on my right hip. My wallet is in my back-right pocket.”

The officer explains for his safety and mine, he needs to disarm me for the stop. I understand, and I unlock the vehicle. I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it. Lead officer asks me to step out, and I do so slowly. Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U I’m running on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard.

Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date. He goes back to run my license. I know he’s got me on at least two infractions. I’m thinking of how to pay them.

Officers return with my Glock in an evidence back, locked and cleared. “Because you were cool with us and didn’t give us grief, I’m just going to leave it at a verbal warning. Get that headlight fixed as soon as possible.”

I smile. “Thank you, sir.”

I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities.

Maybe…just maybe…that notion is bunk.

Maybe if you treat police officers with respect, they will do the same to you.

Police officers are people, too. By far and large, most are good people and they’re not out to get you.

I’d like to thank those two officers and TPD in general for another professional contact.

We talk so much about the bad apples who shouldn’t be wearing a badge. I’d like to spread the word about an example of men who earned their badges and exemplify what that badge stands for.

‪#‎BlueLivesMatter‬ ‪#‎AllLivesMatter‬

[EDIT: In my rush to post, I accidentally omitted that my wallet was in the back-right pocket, near my firearm. This was the primary motivation for temporary disarmament. The post has been modified to reflect that.

Again, I’d like to thank the TPD and their officers for their consistent professionalism, courtesy, and the good work that they do, both in this particular contact and every day.]

    This is such mind control bullshit!….he identified himself as national guard!…quote: “He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard”
    Thats why they didnt bash the fuck out him!

    Whats funny is he has a military ID and is still asked to pass over his weapon!!!
    This story is made to program how you think!!!!!!!
    National guard surrendering their weapons to cops!….thats the program right there!

    • trevor Taylor

      GET A FUCKING CLUE RETARD!!! It is because he wasn’t a complete JACKASS that things went ok. Since he didn’t escalate, the cops didn’t have to use any force MORON! The officer temporarily took his gun so that there would be ZERO confusion when he reached for his wallet. Had he been carrying in an ankle holster or any holster on his left, they probably wouldn’t have asked for the gun at all.

            Thats a fact!…You need to study psychology so you can learn something about yourself!
            But unfortunately because of your massive RETARDATION and MORONIC brain you must be American!
            Only Americans are as ignorant and as stupid….so therefor you must be one! We normal people dont wish to hear your ignorant American opinion….because like your Gay Kenyan president with his transvestite wife….we just dont care!
            So Trevor…got anymore intelligent words to say?
