DASHCAM: Princeton Prof Claims Mistreatment
In posts to social media she has claimed her race led to mistreatmentBy Calibre Press | Feb 25, 2016
Princeton police on Thursday released dash camera video of the arrest of Imani Perry, the Princeton University African American Studies professor who accused police of mistreatment during her weekend arrest.
Perry was arrested on an outstanding warrant stemming from a 2013 warrant issued for two unpaid Princeton parking tickets she received in 2012, police have said.
In several social media posts following the arrest, Perry expressed that she believed she was mistreated because of her race.
“The police treated me inappropriately and disproportionately,” Perry wrote. “The fact of my blackness is not incidental to this matter.”
Perry has since taken down her Twitter account, citing hacking fears and harassment. She also has changed her Facebook profile.
Police have denied Perry was mistreated. The case is being reviewed by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office.
