Request #19-5667

SDPD profiling stop 11/23/2019 involving officers:




Police Officer




Officer Montoya 4224


I should preface this that is it coincidental that I get stopped a couple of days after I request information on old profiling stops? Probably not.


Officers Cameron and Montoya stopped me just past University ave and Fairmont ave. I asked  why I was being stopped, officer Cameron said “he would get to that”. It should be noted that Officer Montoya is also part of the gang task force that arrested a friend of mine and me on another profiling stop in 2016.


Officer Cameron’s demeanor and tone was hostile from the start, especially when I exercised my 4th and 5th amendment rights not to answer any questions. In fact, officer Cameron became downright unprofessional after me exercising my rights. He attempted to mock me when I said, I told him I did not want to get shot reaching for my wallet, that is a real fear for unarmed black men in America and SDPD has a bad reputation. He continued to try and question me, and when I would not engage him, he said “oh I see, it’s a tough guy act MC stuff’. He was trying to escalate the situation and put me in danger. He also said to me something very strange which further proves my profiling accusation: he said to me, “I see you got a new bike, did you get your old one back?”.


Anyway, as you can see from the video, he states, because I would not answer his questions, he was going to search me completely. When the search was done, they kept me in handcuff unnecessarily longer asking me if had “had any questions”, I asked them “are we done”, they said, yes, so I then said uncuff me then. Which Cameron did in a slow unprofessional manner despite the fact that I had just been search, was complying, etc.


I asked for their badge numbers, keep in mind I have a helmet on and its noisy, Montoya said he already gave and refused to give it again since he thought I was being rude.


No explanation was ever given for the stop no ticket was given. THIS WA S PURE PROFILING STOP AN THAT IS LILLEGAL UNDER THE LAW.

I am requesting:

  1. All radio traffic prior to the stop
  2. All field notes taken
  3. I would like to know which unit these officers belong to currently
  4. I would like to know if the officers have a civil and criminal complaints against them
  5. I would like to know why they stopped me
