CSU police release video, audio of alleged racial profiling incident on campus

Do you believe this is racial profiling or someone being vigilant? I know that when I am out in public I am very cautious of my surroundings and people (I think my military training did that to me). I don’t care what color a person is when it comes to suspicious behavior. Because with all the mass shootings and attacks going on, I think we all should be cautious. I would rather that mom call the police, than for A) something does happen or worse B) A “good” guy with a gun takes things into his own hands and confronts the teens.

1. The officers responded to a 'complaint,'

and did the right thing: treated the young men civilly.

The complainer 'profiled,' and as I understand it, CSU has addressed the matter well by offering reimbursement for expenses and a special tour. There was no reason for that mom to call the police.

2. And yet CSU seems to be taking rather extreme measures

to remedy not a mistake they made but some other visitor to campus made.

And in an attempt to make the accusation as serious as possible, it's not a screw up by a private citizen but something that's to be attributed to the campus and some indeterminately large set of people that doesn't include the aggrieved.

It also makes sense to post the response to social media; that's where the condemnation occurred, that's where the accusation occurred. If it becomes a public spectacle, then the resolution is the denouement of a public spectacle. If it's to be dealt with privately, then it should be private. Otherwise what's left is the public accusation and grievance, both unresolved.

3. Racism on the part of the parent and jack booted non thinking on the part of the cops

Out her to social media and get them different jobs.

Examples should be made all around.

Just because you don't like the looks of someone doesn't mean you should call the cops on them.

Fuck paranoia.

4. I see zero evidence pointing towards vigilance.

I see zero evidence pointing towards vigilance. I think common sense did that to me

Can you point towards any specific action, dress, manner or words that would lend credibility in this instance towards the possibility of vigilance?
