MC Hammer

Arrested for Obstruction,

But Claims Profiling

breaking news

0223-mc-hammer-gettyMC Hammer was arrested yesterday for obstructing an officer, but he paints a story of racial profiling by the police ... claiming an officer pulled out his gun and randomly asked him, "Are you on parole or probation?"

Hammer was booked and released from Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, CA after he was popped for obstructing an officer in the performance of their duties and resisting an officer.

But Hammer went on Twitter this morning and his version of events is shocking. He claims the encounter started when a cop tapped on his car window and asked him, "Are you on parole or probation?"

Hammer thought it was all a joke until "he pulled out his guns, blew his whistle and yelled for help."

Hammer summed it all up by saying, "only thing more dangerous than a scared man with a gun, is a scared man with an agenda, a gun and a badge. I was citied for obstruction smh."

TMZ reached out to the Dublin PD for comment ... we're yet to hear back.

Typical cop behavior, I have always believed most cops are bored with their jobs, they want to live the police life they see on TV or in the movies., but they sit around or drive around all day looking and hoping for action. When they cannot find any, the start picking on people hoping they get resisted and they can arrest someone. Did you ever see a cop actually stop any crime? The answer is never, they arrive and investigate only after a crime is committed. They are not crime fighters, if that was the case then why is the crime rate up all throughout this country?

1st of all mc hammer has a black wife and white whore women r not trophies why do u think they re always getting beat and killed by whomever they opening their legs to. Secondly mc hammer tweets were not victim related he said white police with guns r cowards that's dangerous! So to the post that say blacks always claiming victim read the tweets wrong!! Hammer simply pointed out those whom hide behind gun and badge with hidden agendas

Like I've said before, black people are guilty as soon as they are born. As soon as you stop looking at black people like they're going to steal you're purse. I've seen white people clutch their purse when they see a black person coming towards them.

Instead of worrying about blacks crying racism, you might want to focus all of your attention on your inability to comprehend simple, declarative sentences.

Hammer does not tweet ONE WORD in which he cries "racism."

You know, there is no one on this message board who has condemned black male behavior in stronger terms than I. But HELL, the mere presence of melanin and a penis are not automatically determinative of guilt. Hammer is an ordained minister, a married father, a businessman. He does not walk around with his ass exposed; he is not a recidivist criminal. The man doesn't even curse!! So what is your condemnation of him based on, you dimwitted daughter of David Duke?

I suggest you take that sheet off your head. It might help some of the blood circulate to that lump of clay you laughably call a brain. You clearly need all of the intellectual help that you can get.

His crime is wearing that bandana. He's lost in the 80s and needs help getting out. Someone get him a compass, GPS and long distance on his smart phone.

Sometimes people need to keep their dumb ass comments to themselves.. just face reality white people, some of ya'll are racist and the cops do profile black people..I'm sure they are doing it as I post this comment.. this whole damn world is in denial! Its a sinful shame... for the idiots that posted racist, evil comments about black people: you need not worry about what people are saying or thinking about you
