Drug case dropped over ‘prejudice’ cop

STOPPED: Loik St. Louis and Jordan Noel

TWO MEN were acquitted of drug charges after a judge ruled that the traffic cop only stopped them because they were black, according to reports.

Canadian Police Officer, Robin Ferrie, was accused of stopping Loik St. Louis, 24, and Jordan Noel, 22, solely because of the colour of their skin.

Ferrie maintains that he asked the friends to pull over because they did not look at him when they drove past in Noel’s mum car.

Ferrie then called for back up and upon searching the car, allegedly discovered 13 grams of Cannabis, five grams of cocaine and $1,685 in cash.

During a preliminary inquiry last month [June 23], Judge Dianne Nicholas said: "Because two black guys in a car don't look at you, you're calling for backup?

"You're going to check whether he has permission from his mother to drive a car and two other police cars show up, like come on? How many white women do you stop in the market just because they're driving a car?"

"It sure sounds like racial profiling to me,” she said.
