A Dearborn, Michigan police officer is under fire for issuing a ticket to a woman who revealed she was HIV positive during a traffic stop.

The incident which occurred in August 2012 was recorded by the officer's dash cam.

Shalandra Jones, 43, said she revealed her HIV status to Officer David Lacey when he told her and driver Mark Scott that he smelled marijuana in their vehicle.

Lacey told Jones her HIV status "might be something you want to tell a cop if they pull you out of a car."

Lacey can be heard on the dash cam video telling Jones, "You just made me mad."

He then wrote her a ticket for possession of medical marijuana but the ticket was later thrown out.

Lacey defended his actions, saying "I've been going through her purse and she's got earrings and sh*t I'm touching, and I don't want to catch anything."

Jones is unapologetic about revealing her HIV status -- which she isn't required to do in that situation.

"This will hopefully change how police all over the world treat people with HIV," she told the NY Daily News on Tuesday.

"I was actually shocked," Jones told The News. "I would have never expected that kind of behavior from a police officer."

Thanks to loyal reader Marcella B. for the tip.

      He should have appreciated that & worn gloves.....

      Right ! What does HIV have to do with it? This man is a civil servant , and should know how to treat people , and shouldn't be so ignorant when it comes to HIV. As a officer of the law , I'm sure before he puts his hand into a purse to check it, he asked if there was anything in there that could poke or stick him.

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      Tell him that you love that he respects and honors his mother but he needs to grow up and remember who sucks his dyck.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

    • Bootcampgirl

      IMO...you don't win with a momma's boy...you've been trying for 4 years, it's up to you on if you're willing to try another 4..

    • 88

      Stop trying and eventually he will warm up to you if you don't pull no ho $hit in the future but think about it why would you wanna be cool with a man that's smashing your moms. You gotta show and prove make his mama a honest woman.

    • Bootcampgirl

      I'm so confused...did I read her post wrong??

    • SummerBaby

      No you didn't ?

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    • MS PEACHES

      I was with a momma's boy. And I mean boy. He would go from boys to men when his mother was around. No longer with him. She was always his fall guy when shi-t hit the fan. Yo momma don't need to know everything. Put her name on a bill then.

    • Str8tUpMenace

      So she's just always in his pockets??

    • lil goodie

      It's like I can't win no matter whAt I say

    • Bootcampgirl

      You get "along" because he's doing as his mother wants...wait until he says he ain't got it for her after he done got something for you...I bet you won't be getting along too well after that..IJS

    • 88

      you will never win unless you marry his mom.

    • SummerBaby

      Do you & him live together? Have kids with each other?

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      That woman doesn't like you. If she did she would not do that, she would encourage her son to be a good man and put you first. You might need to reevaluate your situation and make some hard decisions.

    • Str8tUpMenace

      You want me to tell his azz?!?!?!? Go find his momma some dack. She'll fall back after that.

    • Bootcampgirl

    • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

      Well my dear you have two options. Neither are easy but with what little you've said only one will lead to you eventually having the relationship you want. Accept it, stop letting it bother you, and stay...or end the relationship and move on. Four years is a long time for nothing to change on his end which tells me nothing will change. You are going to have to be the one to change.

      Good question. I think this one was released now because the city settled with her this week for 40k. Cops know if they can't physically assault you, they can do the next best thing by wrapping you up in the judicial system. Making you miss work, hoping you fail to appear...Theres multiple ways for them to Orgasm outside of killing a Negroe...Remember the cop told the NFL player who was rushing his wife to their passing Mothers bedside? He told that man I can ruin your life! Digressing...Initially they wanted her to waive her rights to drop the charges, good thing she didn't. I don't know if the write up tells the story, but it's an interesting case...Back to the length of time, again, good question, sometimes it doesn't matter though. There's been several cases where the footage disappeared??

      Yes, you are issued one, which she did have, though it was expired. According to the officer, it was her revealing her status that angered him. He even said that he initially stopped the car, because the taillight was out and he was bored (his words, exactly).

      I was with a momma's boy and once he cuts off the money, even if it was his choice, she will find a way to blame you. This is their way of life and you have accepted it for 4 years, so they feel like it has become or should be a way of life for you, too. If and when you get married, your money will become her money and because you now have a combined income, she will expect more.

      Dearborn is a racist suburban area/city in Michigan about 30 miles from Detroit. Their officers are known to pull over minority drivers and harass them for whatever reason they can come up with. This officers attitude is not new to those of us who has had to deal with them growing up. It's a well known fact that they have always discriminated against minorities, matter of fact her having HIV was just a secondary issue, the real one was that they were minorities driving through good ole Dearborn!

      OMG! I can totally relate! Been with my husband for 14 years (married for 9) and when I first started dating him, his mom had his ex-wife over all the time and they would even go in different rooms and whisper and s$&t when I was there. Thankfully my husband had enough b@lls to tell his mom off and he kept apologizing to me for the disrespect, but I never blamed him. She even kept his ex's daughter (who is NOT for my husband) all the time until she graduated recently and sh!t all over her! Now the girl wants nothing to do with her! KARMA!! Mind you she did nothing for our kids (besides X-mas and birthday gifts). I even had to make my husband go and see his mom and check on her when she was pulling those shenanigans because I'm not bitter and she wasn't stopping NOTHING on my end (which she later even thanked me for)! I had a GOOD "respectful" talk with her a few years back that left her eyes wide open and her mouth on the floor (my mother taught me well). Now her a@s as humble as can be! KARMA! No stress here ma'am......none at all!

      Dearborn is a historically RACIST suburb of Detroit. Always has been. Nothing about this is surprising except that the court actually did the right thing.

      What's racist about pulling a driverover for a broken tail light and issuing another ticket for driving without a license? Furthermore, according to the article I read, the female passenger was ticketed for "medical pot," not because she is HIV positive.

      I can't speak for Michigan, but in Chicago, if a first responder is notified they are dealing with someone who has HIV or AIDS, they are instructed to use "universal precautions."

      If I were a cop, I wouldn't stick my hand inside a suspect's bag/purse. I'd feel the bag to detect the presence of a weapon. If I were satisfied the bag didn't contain an object that felt like a weapon, I'd instruct the suspect to remove the contents.
