Professor Lodges False Profiling Claim Against Cop- Dashcam Audio Reveals Lie

Hat tip College Insurrection and The Blaze

Why doesn't this surprise me? A professor of English at a local community college in Connecticut named Minati Roychoudhuri is stopped for a moving infraction by a state trooper. Afterward, she files a complaint against the officer for racial profiling because he reportedly asked her if she spoke English. (I guess that's considered a "micro-aggression" where she teaches.) She also says the officer never told her why she was being stopped and cited.

The dashcam audio of the officer's car proved otherwise on both counts. Now it is the professor who is in hot water.

Maybe Professor Roychoudhuri was looking for some material to use in her English classes on the subject of racial profiling. (I don't know what the connection is between the two.) Hopefully, her students will take it with a grain of salt when she gets up on her racial profiling soapbox now that her credibility has been destroyed.

That's the basic problem with almost any crime... there are those who commit it, and there are those who are falsely accused. Sorting out which is which ... that's the hard part.

You'll be glad to know that audio recordings of the raid on one of Scott Walker's aides in the famous "John Doe" probe also exonerates the officers of the flagrant charges she made in a lawsuit filed against them. They were actually quite courteous to her, in addition to observing all the legal requirements. Seems several years earlier she suffered an entirely different police raid, actually targeting a drug dealer in the duplex apartment above hers, and barged in like they sometimes do when pursuing a drug case... she may have conflated the two raids in putting together her allegations.

I am not aware of the incident.
