Racist Officer Resigns From Dallas Police Force

Posted by Media Outrage on April 1, 2009


NFL Player Ryan & Tamisha Moats appeared on Good Morning America and spoke about the racist incident that occured the night her mother passed.  Ryan and Tamisha were stopped by a Dallas police officer en route to see her dying mother.  Ryan didn’t get to say goodbye to his mother-n-law before she died because of the racist cop.  The officer resigned from the force.

Via CBS11:

Dallas Police Officer Robert Powell, who delayed NFL player Ryan Moats and his wife from the hospital bedside of a dying relative, has resigned. 

Powell handed in his resignation Wednesday morning.

Powell’s attorney released a statement from the officer.  It says:

“With a heavy heart and great sadness, I resigned from the Dallas Police Department this morning.  I made this decision in the hope that my resignation will allow the Dallas Police Department, my fellow officers, and the citizens of Dallas to better reflect on this experience, learn from the mistakes made, and move forward.  I still hope to speak with the Moats family to personally express my deep regret, sympathy, and to apologize for my poor judgment and unprofessional conduct.  I also want to apologize to my fellow officers.  I have sincere respect and admiration for the men and women of the Dallas Police Department and the work they perform daily, and I wish them well.” 

Powell stopped Moats’ car in the parking lot of a Plano hosptial.  Moats had run a red light as he was trying to get to the bedside of his mother-in-law, who was near death.

Powell gave Moats a ticket for running the red light.  He also threatened Moats.  Despite Moats’ pleas to Powell to release him, his mother-in-law died while Powell detained him.

Powell and the Dallas Police Department have come under fire for his actions during the stop.

  1. 2thick4u said I hope he doesn’t take his racist attitude to another town on another police force 😦 !!!

    This was very shameful and heartbreaking. I am glad that the Moats were forgiving individuals.

    The officer wasn’t racist, just a fucking ignorant tyrant who abused his power at the wrong time. I applaud Mr. Ryan for keeping his cool and not asking special treatment. he never said that he was a NFL player, now that’s class. His mother is now in a better place ..

  3. Yea I Said It said

    Did he regret his actions because they were caught on web cam? When the officer from Plano and the nurse came outside to confirm his mother-in-law was indeed dying, that was not enough for you to show compassion?

    It had to come down to your actions being broadcast on CNN,and now you feel some kind of regret? As the song goes.. It”s to late to apologize.

    He quit because he had another job lined up. He is gonna be a FOX news reporter, Just like Mark Furhman is, I almost died when I saw Furhman reporting the news. I guess the only thing you have to do to become a fox news reporter is try and frame black football player……guilty or not……if you get fired in the process, fuck it FOX got your back…..Lol

    @ 2020- Mark Furman is a news reporter for Fox? What kind of shit is that? I don’t watch Fox anyway. I believe most of those reporters are racist or uncle toms.

    Good that’s what he’d better do, or the dogs were comin for that azz!

    @ CrystalShine the dogs may still come for him…. but they should continue with their lawsuit, because this wasn’t his first incident. The police department knew of his behavior.
