    If they were having sex in public, surely there would have been an arrest?

    I'm thinking they would have to have been caught in the act to make an actual arrest. They probably didn't want to go on nothing but the eyewitness accounts.

    this is why i suspected the story was off. maybe something like that would get attention in another city, but i would be surprised if it did in LA.

    and i still don't know her name so the stunt was in vain. for me, she will just be 'that dumbass from django'.

    I was ready to give her the benefit of doubt, but if this story was true about them fucking in their car, her credibility is shot. I don't care if you're an interracial, gay, or heterosexual, monochrome couple, but fucking in a car in broad daylight when people can see your ass is dumb and stupid. There are a lot of interracial couples here in Georgia and I've never heard of anything like this happening, so I was a bit incredulous and perplexed that this story was happening in Los Angeles of all places, though that city is not a racial utopia by any means, but interracial couples are a lot more common there than in most other parts of the country.

    There are way too many legitimate stories about police misconduct and their bad treatment of minorities in the news. As a black man who has had negative and positive dealings with the police, have a brother who was harassed and had guns pulled on him by cops, not to mention numerous friends who have had the same thing happen to them, I'm all too aware about cases where there has been misconduct and all around jackassery by cops. I was so upset during the whole Ferguson/Michael Brown saga earlier this summer, I really couldn't even articulate my thoughts, and I was angered by the stupidity and racist comments I saw on Facebook and various news sites, and how the narrative was turned into a bunch of poor black people rioting and destroying their neighborhood when the truth was a lot more complex than that (outside agitators were the ones who were doing most of the looting and throwing molotov cocktails for one thing). Considering all the bullshit that's happening in the world and the issues of police brutality and police militarization constantly ignored in the mainstream, a spoiled brat narcissistic actress and her nitwit boyfriend making a spectacle of their stupidity definitely is a distraction and smoke screen from real shit out there going on. So fuck all of them for this.

    Even if they weren't having sex if they were going at it enough for people to think they are then they messed up. I don't care who you are or what card you want to play, keep that shit for at home or for the next iCloud hacker.

    yeah, maybe but what does it tell you about the state of the police if almost everyone automatically assumed it was the cops being racist assholes?

    who's never had sex in a car? i think the difference is most people do it in the middle of nowhere or when it's dark, not in broad daylight.

    Most people I know wouldn't call the cops on a couple having sex, unless it was outside a school or where kids were around. We'd probably be watching and laughing, and critiquing.

    There comes a time when people really should STFU...

    It's my right to enjoy myself': Django Unchained actress insists she did nothing wrong before being 'harassed by the LAPD' ...as witnesses claim she was having sex in public

    • In a police audio of the incident obtained by TMZ, Watts is heard accusing the police of racism when Sgt. Jim Parker asks her for ID
    • She then accuses cops of not knowing who she is before storming off
    • Witnesses told police they were watching her and her boyfriend have sex in the passenger seat with the door open
    • Daniele Watts played slave CoCo in the Oscar-winning 2012 film
    • Watts and boyfriend Brian James Lucas claim that they were kissing in Hollywood when police were called
    • Watts claims her wrist was cut when police handcuffed her
    • Says she was put in a police car after refusing to show her ID


    The Django Unchained actress who claims she was harassed by the LAPD for being a black woman dating a white man has spoken out to say she did nothing wrong before officers questioned and detained her - despite witnesses saying she and her partner were having sex in public.
    'In my opinion, it's not a crime to by fully clothed, showing affection, on a public street, in our own car,' Daniele Watts told CNN today.
    'If we're fully clothed, it doesn't matter how passionately we're making out. It's my right and my pleasure to enjoy myself. And I don't feel like I should feel ashamed for that or feel like I should have to apologize for that.'
    Watts says she was mistaken for a prostitute and was handcuffed by officers after she refused to show identification. She was later released without being charged.



    +11


    Daneile Watts defended not giving her ID to cops and said she shouldn't have been questioned in the first place because she did nothing wrong



    California law allows officers to detain suspects to determine their identities. Despite this, Watts maintains that it was her 'right' not to show the officer her driver's license.

    When the CNN interviewer asked why Watts didn't simply hand over her ID when asked, she responded: 'Because I believe what this country stands for and I believe in freedom and I believe in a country that calls itself the land of the free and the home of the brave.
    'If I am within my amendment rights, my constitutional rights to say no, unless you're charging me with a crime, I will not be giving you my ID, that is a right that I stand up for because of the shoulders that I stand on...'


    In a police audio of the incident obtained by TMZ, Watts is heard accusing the police of racism when Sgt. Jim Parker asks her for ID. She then tells cops that they don't who she is before storming off, refusing to show her ID.
    Witnesses from the nearby Directors Guild office building allegedly told the police they were watching her and her boyfriend have sex in the passenger seat with the door open.

    One eyewitness said the man was sitting in the seat while she was straddling him, in plain sight of everyone around them.

    After storming off, Watts was apprehended by a police officer a short distance away and brought back where she continued her rant.


    In the audio, Sgt. Parker can be heard telling Watts that the police were responding to calls from a nearby office.


    She says: 'I bet there's at least one person up there who's a racist. I bet you. I bet you're a little bit racist.'

    After refusing to give her name, Watts demands to know Sgt. Parker’s first name, before adding: ‘I think I’d like to identify you to my publicist. What’s your first name?’
    She continues: 'I guess we all have our destinies... I serve freedom and love. You guys serve detainment. That's cool.
    'I hope you feel free... I hope when you're f***ing your spouses you really feel alive. That you feel thankful, full of gratitude for the freedom that you have, that you share with the people of this country.'

    Watts' boyfriend Brian Lucas filmed her crying as she was handcuffed and questioned by police for making out with her partner in public.
    Police also questioned Lucas and asked him questions like 'Do you really know her?' - seemingly insinuating that Watts was soliciting.
    The couple described the incident to Buzzfeed, saying they were kissing in Lucas' car outside the CBS Studio Center in Studio City on Thursday when someone in a nearby office walked by and told them to stop.
    'A Caucasian guy in a business suit comes downstairs and says, "Can you guys stop putting on a show? I have people who are trying to work up there",' Watts told ABC 7.
    THE LAPD'S HISTORY OF RACIAL TENSION

    The Los Angeles Police Department has long been accused of using racial profiling in their arrests
    A 2008 study conducted by Yale economist Professor Ian Ayres found that blacks are three times more likely to be stopped in L.A. than whites.

    The study also found that of 1,200 complaints of racial profiling over a five-year period, none of the officers were actually found guilty of the charge and disciplined.

    And this isn't the only time in recent weeks that the LAPD has been accused of racial profiling.
    Last month, a black film and television producer was arrested on his way to an Emmy party and held for six hours by police who thought he was a robbery suspect.
    The producer, 51-year-old Charles Belk, was later released when officers realized he had nothing to do with the crime.

    Last year, the LAPD launched a program to address these complaints, bringing officers and the citizens who accuse them of profiling together for mediated talks.
    Officers who participated in the so-called 'Community-employee education pilot program' are rewarded by having the internal investigation into the incident dropped.



    Watts says she was fully dressed and only kissing when police were called to the scene, and asked for the couple's identification.

    Lucas handed police his ID, but Watts refused and started walking away from the scene.

    'I didn't have the stomach for someone on a power trip when I knew I hadn't done anything wrong,' Watts told Buzzfeed.

    That's when police stopped and handcuffed her, bringing her back to the scene where the couple was questioned. Lucas found the kinds of questions troubling.

    'How do you know her, what relationship, they were questions that quite frankly made me feel like that they were questioning me being like the client of a prostitute,' Lucas said. 'He didn't say anything ever about that, I just felt that energy from it.'

    Watts was eventually let go after providing photo ID.

    While the LAPD initially refused to comment on the incident, since there had been no official arrest, they have released a statement saying they are investigating.

    They said two officers were dispatched to the scene on a report of 'indecent exposure' and briefly detained the two individuals.

    'Upon further investigation it was determined that no crime had been committed. Ms. Watts and her companion were subsequently released,' police said.

    News of the arrest spread after the couple wrote about it on their social media accounts.

    Watts wrote on her Facebook page: 'Today I was handcuffed and detained by 2 police officers from the Studio City Police Department after refusing to agree that I had done something wrong by showing affection, fully clothed, in a public place.'

    She also posted a photo of crying as she stood in the street wearing patterned shorts, a t-shirt with 'New York' written on it and running shoes with a policeman next to her.

    Watts, who plays Martin Lawrence's daughter on the new FX comedy Partners, continued: 'When the officer arrived, I was standing on the sidewalk by a tree.

    'I was talking to my father on my cell phone.

    'I knew that I had done nothing wrong, that I wasn't harming anyone, so I walked away.

    'A few minutes later, I was still talking to my dad when 2 different police officers accosted me and forced me into handcuffs.

    'As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong.

    'I allowed myself to be honest about my anger, frustration, and rage as tears flowed from my eyes.



    'The tears I cry for a country that calls itself 'the land of the free and the home of the brave' and yet detains people for claiming that very right.

    Separately her chef boyfriend posted on his Facebook page that he thought that the person who called the police had decided they looked like a prostitute and a client.

    He wrote: 'From the questions that he asked me as D was already on her phone with her dad, I could tell that whoever called on us (including the officers), saw a tatted RAWKer white boy and a hot bootie shorted black girl and thought we were a H* (prostitute) & a TRICK (client).

    'What an assumption to make!!!Because of my past experience with the law, I gave him my ID knowing we did nothing wrong and when they asked D for hers, she refused to give it because they had no right to do so.

    'So they handcuffed her and threw her roughly into the back of the cop car until they could figure out who she was. In the process of handcuffing her, they cut her wrist, which was truly NOT COOL!!!'

    EXTRAORDINARY AUDIO TRANSCRIPT OF WATTS ARREST: 'I DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW WE LIVE IN A FREE COUNTRY WHERE I'M AT A PARKING LOT MAKING OUT WITH MY BOYFRIEND AND I GET ARREST'

    Watts: (sobbing) I don’t understand how we live in a free country where I’m at a parking lot making out with my boyfriend and I get arrested just because somebody called the cops. I don’t understand how we live in a free country where cops can put you in handcuffs… for nothing.

    Sgt. Parker: (speaking to someone in background) Stay here, I’d be careful… A little emotional.
    Sgt. Parker (to Watts): What’s your first name? Why do you think you’re in handcuffs? Do you think we put you in handcuffs or you did?

    Watts: I put myself in handcuffs?

    Sgt. Parker: Who do you think put yourself in handcuffs? Who do you think put you in handcuffs?

    Watts: I think that this officer right here put me handcuffs because…

    Sgt. Parker No, I think you did the minute you left the scene.
    Watts: Yes, because I was being treated as a criminal before I even did anything.

    Sgt. Parker: I’m sorry, do you… do you see the gentleman here in handcuffs? Is the gentleman here in handcuffs before you? No, he’s not.

    Watts: Do you think that I’m stupid?

    Sgt. Parker: I don’t think you’re stupid at all

    Watts: What’s your first name Officer Parker?

    Sgt. Parker: My name is Sergeant Parker and that’s all you need to know.
    Watts: Why do you need to know my first name but I don’t need to know your first name?

    Sgt. Parker Because I need to identify you as a source of a radio call

    Watts: So I think I’d like to identify you to my publicist, what’s your first name?
    Sgt. Parker: Now you see why you’re in handcuffs?

    Watts: Why because you’re afraid of the news getting out about you arresting someone who’s innocent, who was making out with her boyfriend?

    Sgt. Parker: I’ve been on the news many times.
    Watts: Awesome.

    Second officer: Ma’am, I explained to you over there why you’re in handcuffs

    Watrts: Because you asked me to turn around and face the wall and I did.
    Second officer: When you left my supervisor when he told you stay…

    Watts: Did he tell me to stay or did I say I am walking away and I was talking to my dad? Did you hear him tell me to stay here?

    Sgt. Parker: You can’t walk away ma’am
    Second officer: He didn’t say anything to you as you walked away…
    Watts: You didn’t say anything to me as I was walking away.

    So she wasn't in handcuffs because they thought she was a prostitute or because she was refusing to give her ID but because she was walking away from the scene. While I'm no fan of the police and know that they need to do some serious cleaning up I can also see where the police are coming from on this. In that line of work you get to see people day in and day out of all ages, races and genders who aren't going to want to show ID or admit to their real name because they have previous convictions or outstanding warrants. Then you get someone who they obviously don't realise is a bona fide STAR () that not only refuses to provide ID but appears to attempting to leave the scene so of course they are going to slap the cuffs on until they know what the deal is. Can you imagine the headlines if someone was pulled up by the police, wouldn't provide ID and was let go without being checked into and it turned out that they were wanted for something heinous? The police don't do themselves any favours sometimes but they'd get crucified if that happened. Sometimes they can't win.
