Steven Hildreth, Jr., of Tucson, Arizona, was pulled over by 2 white officers for driving with a broken headlight on Oct. 27.

In a Facebook post, Hilbreth said he was “wearing a hoodie and strapped.”

After approaching his car, one of the officers asked Hildreth if he was armed. Hildreth replied that he was armed with a Glock handgun. He said his gun was holstered on his right hip and his conceal carry license was in his wallet in his right back pocket.

He said the 2 officers “dialogued” with him, and they told him they had to disarm him to check his registration.

“I explain that I’m running a 7TS ALS holster but from the angle, the second officer can’t unholster it,” Hildreth wrote.

He said he stepped out of the vehicle “slowly” so the 2nd officer could unholster his weapon.

“Officer relieves me of my Glock and compliments the X300U [flashlight] on it. He also sees my military ID and I tell him I’m with the National Guard,” Hildreth wrote.

“Lead officer points out my registration card is out of date but he knows my registration is up to date,” Hildreth wrote.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

Hildreth said the officers returned his Glock to him in an evidence bag, along with a warning to get his headlight fixed. They complimented him for his respectful treatment of them.

But Hildreth went one step further. He went home and wrote a Facebook post, thanking the officers for “an example of men who earned their badges and exemplify what that badge stands for.”

We all know the traffic stop would have turned out differently if Hilbreth had been an entitled (read: arrogant) Black Lives Matter Twitter activist.

The difference is Hildreth wasn’t pulled over while in the commission of a felony and he isn’t a thug with a lengthy criminal record. So don’t expect him to get an invite to the White House or an interview on CNN.com.

    Am not mad at him for speaking of a positive experience he had with cops , not all cops are savages. But, I do hve a problem when ppl say all lives matter instead of blk lives matter. Of course no one should be gunned dwn but it happens a lot more to blks than whites. Blks are Locked up at much higher rate than anyone else. To me when ppl say all lives matter they are belittling the cause. IMO

    He knew his headlight was out.
    Knew he was going to get pulled over
    Cop spotted the holster, I would love to know if he had anything on his card identifying him as National Guard as well.

    On a related note, has anyone seen the video of the guy pulling the cop over for having one of his headlights out. That fool said, “I’m not going to give you a ticket. I’m going to give you a warning.” That thing made me laugh.

    The cop pulled off without identifying himself but the dude lived to see another day.

  • The Mrs.

    How was he profiled? His headlight was out. In most states, that’s a violation of the law.

    It means that there is a lot of backlash regarding police officers in the news today. There are many good officers that get stereotyped because of the actions of the bad officers. I am happy to see something positive for a change.

    C) How much $$ have we as a people raised for any of the families or victims? How fast, and how much did whites donate to Zimmerman and other culprits.

    So was it a headlight or a tail light that was out? Because one said headlight and later in the write up it said tail light. And furthermore, if it was a tail light and they TURNED AROUND to pull him over, then he was profiled. Why Sway?

    Secondly, what exactly were the two infarctions, the “head or tail” light and the outdated registration or…….

    And if not petty enough, what color is his significant other and what type of car does he drive?

  • understandingoverignorance

    Mr. Hildreth did the right thing he was up front with the officer in a state where people do carry concealed weapons. He came out and told the officer because he had a legal right to carry that fire arm. Now lets take it to the Brother in the “Trap” he isn’t carrying a legal firearm and he knows it got like “Four Bodies on it” so he will have an attitude and look to run and escape…Keep your car in tip top shape and pay your insurance and registration and guess what you will not get that random pull over.

    The ONLY reason they let him off is because he is in the military. As a federal officer myself all cops have changed their tune once they came across my ID indicating that I work in law enforcement. His badge is what is responsible for the courteous and respectful treatment. And if he thinks that respecting cops is the solution then yes he is blind. I work with officers who no matter what they are arrogant rude and disrespectful and many of them have biases and it surely comes out while working even against colleaugues.

    Sadly Sandra, we do get riled up over cases of legit police shootings. I use to be a supporter of the #BlackLivesMatter movement But after Shaun King was exposed. I took a closer look, and seen that the movement isn’t even controlled by Black people. It forced me to really examine these cases, and how it’s funded. They are using the Black Community for their own political means, this is their answer to the “Tea party”. I believe democrats created this movement, just to get us inspire to vote by using our struggles as an emotional push. We spend so much time chasing the fake cases, while the real cases of Police misconduct are ignored. I believe this is by design.

    Police Brutality is real, Black men, women and children are really dying out there, But this movement don’t care about them.They quickly become a hashtag and then people move on to the next protest without seeing any of it through.

Why do I need to get out of the car for a minor traffic infraction? I live in neither a bubble nor a box, nor do I not know what is going on…..difference is when a cop is killed, the killer is charged and imprisoned; when a cop kills, the victim is dehumanized and the officer typically (not always) gets off.

    Of course it isn’t rocket science but there are times when cops don’t treat people with respect and have no idea of the law they are trying to uphold. There are countless people that get pulled over everyday…Blacks included that get off..that STILL does not take away from the fact that black people are still racially profiled and brutalized. So again what’s his point?…

  • SpideySense

    They don’t like to acknowledge that. Goes against the narrative about us that they’ve created

  • Blaque Mahogany

    It’s really unfortunate that so many people are missing the bigger picture. Your ability to walk away from an interaction with the police should
    not be dependent on whether the cop believes you treated him with the
    amount of deference he believes he is due. As a human being, you should be respectful, polite and courteous. Not being respectful, polite and courteous, should not result in your death or disparate treatment. If you are unable to deal with angry, nasty, disrespectful, rude, belligerent people, you should NOT be a police officer.

    Lastly, racial profiling should not be absolved because the cop happens to subsequently find a violation of the law and it should not be absolved because the cop decides to not shoot you, arrest you, or give you a ticket. Racism should not be rewarded in ANY circumstance. Period.

    Ok, we can forget about the Trayvon Martins and Michael Browns of the country now, Steven Hildreth’s testimony has erased all of that.

  • partytime

    He white/black……..

  • Datsmdubya2u2

    Chile we so lazy these days…we rather talk down to other black people and tell tell just lay down and take it than do what it takes to change the system

  • AnonymousRose

    sooooo dam True, but when you start to learn who you really are, man Its a whole new world…not saying its gonna be gravy . but lord know’s Knowledge is power, its so much truth in that statement, get the knowledge, they will respect your power, we all have power, its up to us who we allow to control it….

  • Wildcat34

    Nutrider!

  • AnonymousRose

    lol, but you are not a human your I.D tells you that everyday, when they pull you over, and ask for your license, you give it to them…. so as they see, ok we talking to a dummy, so they proceed you as one… again its on every paper you pull out that (SO CALLED COMMERCIAL VEHICLE), LOL.. and you think its privately owned…. hahaha…this is not directed at you, I’m just making my point…

  • 1/8

    Wow! So, any black person who praises an officer’s professionalism is a “coon?” The ignorance is so thick, you can cut it with a knife!

  • 1/8

    Trayvon wasn’t murdered by a cop. How is he relevant to this topic?

  • GTFOHWTBS

    good for him, but a pig is a pig. im sure they had the camera in the cruiser rolling to show they are trying to play nice #NotBuyingIt

  • askquestions

    Yep. And in the time it took you to write that ^^^ you could have offered something worth your time writing.

  • Nix

    so please sir or maam tell us how we should approach this? tired of black ppl who want to spew all that we don’t do but never have the answers sway. we got it, we know what’s wrong its like a frickin broken record already…i’ll wait

  • askquestions

    Lol. Ok. If you don’t see the correlation of a young man sagging and as a result not being permitted into certain places, and jobs, and therefore not being exposed to more info and data, I don’t know what to tell you…..
    ;}

  • Nix

    lmao

  • Full Monty

    So you praise cops for actually doing what they are supposed to do “their job”! Grabs my ulcer meds. cause these new blacks getting on my nerves chile!

  • Nix

    and you know this!

  • Jamal Warner

    In my state you are not even required to tell them or even give up your firearm. You essentially gave up your right to even carry firearms. They essentially infringed on his right to carry.

  • Noirluv45

    No, he’s a buffoon because he’s an obvious plant. His FB page says, #BlueLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter. It’s so obvious to me that this guy is for show and people fall for it. I did until I went to his page. They always use Black faces to defend their evil because they know they’ll get nice and fuzzy feelings from White folks. Some Negroes know how to play the game real good.

  • Auditor

    Exactly!

  • Auditor

    He didn’t see it…that’s the whole point of it being concealed and why the officer asked. It’s legal to conceal carry in AZ even without a permit.

  • Noirluv45

    Tiffany, we cannot afford to remain ignorant. Chilling and complying have nothing to do with what the officer is trained to do and not to do. Not being chill and uncompliant does not warrant a death sentence. Police are supposed to de-escalate situations, not aggravate them. They are the professionals who have to deal with a lot of different people, and yes, many of them are pains in the butts, but that’s their job and they need to do it right.

  • Auditor

    If Black folk know what’s wrong…why do they continue to do what they do?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Got it. So you just have anecdotal evidence and your feelings on the matter. Just as I thought…

  • Auditor

    Preach!

  • Noirluv45

    Sandra, you know good and well that’s a bunch of crap! Was that tennis player being disrespectful that that cop tackled him? Was Tamir Rice being disrespectful? What about Eric Garner? The issue is they harass and bully people and THEY are the ones who choose to become police officers. Everyone isn’t going to be respectful. That’s the world we live in so they are trained to cope with people who don’t act right. THEY are the ones who are supposed to uphold the law and anyone who believe a person should be manhandled, shoot or killed (unless the officer’s life is in danger) is ridiculous.

  • Noirluv45

    Do you know how many laws and procedures have been changed because of the Black Lives Matter movement?

  • Noirluv45

    This dude is a plant if I’ve ever seen one.

  • Auditor

    Lol I can’t tell sometimes…they got some daaaaark Mexicans out here

  • askquestions

    And you have nothing but slave-minded, decisive tactics.

    Will all that has happen with innocence a blacks dying, we have yet to organize boycott to show our power of demonstration.

  • askquestions

    First, we can master the natural laws of nature–math, science. Then be creative with that knowledge to build things from our own minds and protect those things. It’s all about learning to govern the unchangable laws of earth. That’s how a plane is put into the sky, all the way down to mass produced argriculture.

  • eljjai

    it’s not a bad thing to high light that not all cops are just waiting on a chance to shoot a black man.

  • 7ate9

    They were getting shot before BLM started making headlines and they will continue to be killed long after BLM is irrevelant.

    Statistics of cops killed in the line of duty by year:
    2000 -162
    2001- 241
    2002- 159
    2003- 150
    2004 -165
    2005- 163
    2006- 156
    2007 -192
    2008 -148
    2009 -125
    2010- 161
    2011- 171
    2012 -126
    2013- 107
    2014- 114

    Bloodiest year is 1930 with 301 cops killed in the line of duty.

  • Zizzle

    He was murdered by a self-proclaimed rent-a-cop, and don’t you have better things to challenge?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I think you mean divisive…and this is coming from someone that has just come in here and demonized and isolated an entire segment of the community you are allegedly trying to help.

    Again, YOU haven’t done anything. Personally, I’ve participated in several boycotts and protests…that were very well organized.

    Seems like maybe you should get off of this blog and be the change YOU are not seeing.

  • http://www.nicolaloves.com/ NicolaLoves

    I understand, but supposed the two cops rolled up on his sides and one spotted the gun BEFORE they had a chance to ask “do you have a weapon?” This situation could have been very different.

  • Nanny

    These new aged negropeans can miss me with this bs

  • 1/8

    Which police department did Zimmerman work for?

  • just being me

    They are not afraid of a man with a gun because they know they will get shot if they get out of line .. They he was unarmed they would have treated him so much different and thats the issue we need to address because these people are the ones they are killing ..

  • the guest

    Amen to this post. Mr. Hildreth is a hero.

  • askquestions

    The truth hurts. I get it. Obese people don’t like being told their fat either.

  • stanley

    I’m not saying that in the beginning, especially during the Travyon Martin era it didn’t do any good. But now, not even the original creators have control over the movement. The original creators which were 2 black women have spoke nout against Deray and Shaun King Who Hijacked the movement. You know Shaun? The guy that is pretending to be black, and was collecting donations but did not send the funds to the families? No thanks. I will support my black people in my own way, I don’t want nothing to do with them people.

  • YouWearItWell

    My first thought was I wonder if his military ID gave him some respect? Just pondering because my ex was caught speeding with an out of state license, 30 miles over, active duty mil ID, and minority and the state trooper let him off with a hefty ticket but not jail… this was 12 years ago, though.

  • YouWearItWell

    That’s the impression I got, as well. The military ID gets a lot of extra respect as I have personally experienced (just saying it whether it’s a good or bad point).

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    You’re not black, why do you care? You daddy white your mothers 75% white GO AWAY!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Both his parents are white he got 1 black ancestor .So he’s claiming the 25% black in him so he can pass for a dark white negro. Ignore him.

  • 1/8

    My 25% “blackness” gives me a right to voice my opinion. ?

  • Angela Flowers

    WOW…that was very unnecessary. Hopefully none of Sandra Bland’s relatives visit this site and come across this messy comment. Very distasteful.

  • Leigh John

    You are wasting your time using facts on SR especially to defend anyone black!Black equals automatically wrong and guilty in this garden .Let’s not mention that I’d he was white, they would have never pulled him over for a broken light or asked about a gun.If he was dark and didn’t look gay, they would have beat his teeth in.

  • barbeez

    I was respectful to an officer after being robbed and he called me a liar and an idiot believing my neighbor who was wanted by the detective working my case for questioning. He also called me a jackazz while threatening to arrest me. I wrote a ten page complaint but nothing much came out of it.

  • BasquiatV

    They reason by emotion.

  • BasquiatV

    He act like a civilized person and got treated like one. I am a black male law abiding citizen and I have never had a problem with the police. I’m not belligerent and I speak in complete sentences.

  • Harvey Pittman

    Why would two white officers pull a black American man over for having an unholstered, unregistered firearm. This is what I call petty below the law.

  • Tea???

    Not all cops are a holes I thought that was a known fact. But that doesn’t mean their aren’t some that abuse their power.

  • lawless

    lol, they acting like civilians can’t ask a cop why they are being pulled over, it is well within our rights to do so, sandra is associating asking a question with being belligerent? (facepalm). This negro had to go on facebook and make an announcement about how massa didn’t shoot him, the fact that he even has to do this speaks volumes, no other race has to make announcements about traffic stops where their lives were spared

  • Sassy24

    He looks like a clown. Nothing to see here.

  • casiepriest33

    M fing exactly. We’re praising Mf’s for doing their job correctly now?

  • WiserWords2

    Miss Thang, Miss Thang!

  • Hmmm~?

    That has nothing to do with him being black. That’s standard procedure nowadays. Almost everyone is packing nowadays. Quit trying to spin it into something it’s not.

  • WiserWords2

    Love it!

  • WiserWords2

    “We is our generation Jonny Cockrin?” Huh? I suggest you pick up a copy of Black Enterprise. You might learn a thing or two.

  • WiserWords2

    Why would our numbers match? You don’t sound very bright. Whites have had the benefit of centuries of education and wealth building. Black people have spent 74% of their time in this country either enslaved, legally discriminated against and shut out of obtaining the “American Dream”. It has only been 50 years since we received the same rights that white people have been receiving for centuries.

    Of course our numbers don’t match. Ignorance is not a virtue, my friend.

  • WiserWords2

    You’re contradicting yourself.

  • WiserWords2

    Please tell us about some of the “real” cases of police misconduct?

  • suganspice68

    I wonder if Hilbreth still be praising those officers publicly if they were black?? Those new blacks be doing the absolute most for white people,smh.

  • dancemomtoo131

    exactly…

  • MzFutureLCSW

    Even if someone is arrogant, how does that warrant a public execution with no due process.

  • the guest

    Did they come together to hold a fundraiser to financially supplement the single parent homes disenfranchised by the millions of black men who abandoned their children? That would be coming together for something positive. Talking, rallying, preaching is lip service to a serious pandemic of child abandonment.

  • askquestions

    How so? I’m always open to opinion.

    Excuses. Excuses. Excuses.

    Harriet Tubman had to threaten some slaves with a rifle for them to see their own possiblilty. I’m not here to convince you.

    You’re just proof there are still crap-negros who are willing to make excuses, and spend so much time repeating the same, tired history lesson about, “oooohhh what they did to us poor old slaves….”

    Grow up, young lady. :}

    Negroes be compliant and not belligerent and be lucky you don’t get shot by someone that gets a cookie for doing their job….also this guy has a book to sell by the looks of his page soooo….yea who’s to say this even happened…

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    A hero to who hun? Whose life did Hildreth save? Smh.

  • justice4all04

    Amen!!!

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Interesting that no one is paying attention to the fact that a BLACK MAN WITH A WEAPON had a successful stop. No one acknowledges the fact that HE took charge of his situation by being honest and respectful. No mention of the things that might make others truly see the need to be responsible.

    I applaud you Mr. Hildreth and yes, he was fortunate not to have had some hot headed cops. But he still handled himself properly
