Lt. Tim McMillan put up a Facebook post Oct. 1 about an encounter he’d had with a young African-American man and how he wished relations between police and the community could be better.
The Garden City, Ga., cop had no idea how much of a chord he’d strike with that note, now shared more than 142,000 times and leading to so many messages for McMillan that he set up a Facebook page.
The post that started it all: Published October 1, 2016 at 9:04am
“I pulled a car over last night for texting and driving. When I went to talk to the driver, I found a young black male, who was looking at me like he was absolutely terrified with his hands up. He said, “What do you want me to do officer?” His voice was quivering. He was genuinely scared.
I just looked at him for a moment, because what I was seeing made me sad. I said, “I just don’t want you to get hurt.”
In which he replied, with his voice still shaking, “Do you want me to get out of the car.”
I said, “No, I don’t want you to text and drive. I don’t want you to get in a wreck. I want your mom to always have her baby boy. I want you to grow up and be somebody. I don’t even want to write you a ticket. Just please pay attention, and put the phone down. I just don’t want you to get hurt.”
I truly don’t even care who’s fault it is that young man was so scared to have a police officer at his window. Blame the media, blame bad cops, blame protestors, or Colin Kaepernick if you want. It doesn’t matter to me who’s to blame. I just wish somebody would fix it.”- Lt. Tim McMillan
“When I originally made the social media status … I did so because I truly care for people,” he wrote in a Saturday post on the new page. “I care for all human beings and wish all people … a life of happiness and peace.”
In his original post, McMillan had expressed frustration at pulling over a young black man (for texting and driving) and seeing how frightened he was dealing with a police officer.
“I truly don’t even care [whose] fault it is that young man was so scared to have a police officer at his window,” he wrote then. “I just wish somebody would fix it.”
But apparently not everyone agreed with that message, as McMillan reveals the “stress and sadness” he’s experienced at some of the negativity being lobbed his way.
