After the San Bernardino attacks all of California is on edge. But a California woman claims she was being racially profiled after simply asking a question about buying ammunition from a Dick’s Sporting Goods store.
The East Bay woman walked into a Dick’s store and asked an employee about buying 8 boxes of ammunition for an AR-15. She did not buy any ammo.
The store’s response was to call police and 2 days later a couple officers showed up at the woman’s door.
Sim Sangha, however, is a certified firearms instructor and is looking into becoming an enforcement officer herself.
According to NBCbayarea.com,
“I don’t know if it’s [because of] my skin color or that I’m Indian,” she said. “I’m not a Muslim, but even if I were, that’s no reason to call police to my home, instantly.”
Sangha, a firearms instructor, didn’t buy ammunition for her rifle – the same kind used to gun down 14 people and injure 17 others in San Bernardino – and left instead with an exercise mask.
“They singled me out,” Sangha said. “They singled me out because of the way I look.”
Had the store asked, Sangha, who is preparing to join the Los Angeles Police Department, said she would have provided proof of her certification.
“I feel like I was racially profiled,” she said. “I’ve had friends buy bulk ammo and they’ve never had police show up at their door.”
A Fremont police spokeswoman said that the department does not have a defined policy to step up police actions against activity that may be construed by some as terrorist-related. They are, however, on heightened alert since a husband-and-wife duo opened fire at a holiday party at the Inland Regional Center in Southern California.
