Hadley has the misfortune of being the gateway between Amherst and all points west, north, and south. This includes Northampton, Springfield, Holyoke, Connecticut, New York, and of course New Jersey. Everything outside of Route 9 smells like cow shit. Literally everything. But pretty much all traffic goes through Route 9, which is filled with chain restaurants, fast food joints, Walmart, and bootleg “malls.” So on a day to day basis hundreds of thousands of slugpumps drive through Hadley, many of who are carrying drugs and driving like assholes.
One of these chudstuffers is Amherst business owner Neal Patel, who seems to think that he is exempt from being pulled over for traffic violations because of the color of his skin:
An Amherst business owner and the Hadley Police Department have engaged in a public back-and-forth over claims of racial profiling. Neal Patel, owner of Amherst Wines & Spirits, wrote on the department’s Facebook page recently that he had been “pulled over quarterly for highly questionable reasons just because (I) drive a nice car.” Patel, 29, said he drives a blue BMW and the car is readily identifiable to police. Sgt. Mitchell Kuc responded publicly to Patel’s post, saying the department takes racial profiling allegations seriously and inviting Patel to email him.
I already learned everything I needed to know about this muff chowder the second he mentioned that he “drives a nice car.” Only an unbearable, self-absorbed dooshnozzle would ever use that phrase and two sentences later say, “I have nice things because I work hard.” I know the type immediately. He’s the type that poses for pictures like this:
And rocks the latest Burberry Outlet swag and dirty sunglasses that he got off the clearance rack at the Lee Outlets.
And of course he’s lived his whole life in Longmeadow, where the town slogan is, “Your Dads work for our Dads.” So basically he’s the textbook definition of privileged.
I also guarantee Neal Patel is driving around, spending the Patel money on “nice cars,” and when he goes out to the club for a night of disco he spend $800 on “top shelf” liquor, which is really just Mr. Boston’s poured into another bottle.
And wouldn’t ya know it, here he is gettig his disco on at the club:
Never saw that one coming.
He also does Bollywood sketch videos:
Although according to the commenters, this particular video was plagiarized.
But even chodemuffins like this get treated respectfully and professionally by the Hadley PD:
Kuc in an email to The Republican said they have not been able to connect beyond Facebook.
“While Mr. Patel’s comment is obviously public, we feel it would be unprofessional of us as an agency to get in to the specifics of Mr. Patel’s police interactions in a public forum,” Kuc wrote. He said the department did “go ahead and conduct our own review of the matter to ensure legal/policy compliance, and we found that there were no indications that stops were other than for legally justified reasons. We hope that Mr. Patel does reach out to us so that we can speak with him directly of his concerns,” Kuc said.
See that? The cops dropped everything they were doing to run an internal investigation. Turns out the stops were justified. Not according to this cock biscuit though:
Patel said he has been stopped three times in Hadley this past year. He said he doesn’t want “to stir the pot” and has not contacted Kuc because he’s a little afraid.
HAHAHHAHAHAHA!!! He’s “afraid” of the police officer who respectfully engaged in a dialogue with him on Facebook.
In other words, he’s a COWARD. A pussy. Not a real man. A real man can talk to other reasonable men and settle their differences. But he’s just some lucky sperm second generation child who got handed everything in life by his hard working immigrant parents. So he doesn’t have it in him to address a police officer directly. Instead he leaves a one star review, and when the cop attempts to speak with him he whines about being “afraid” to message privately.
According to his post he is a “law abiding citizen” who was only pulled over because of the color of his skin. But clearly he doesn’t understand what “law abiding means”:
But he said he was frustrated the third time he was stopped for what he said was a minor traffic violation, something he said has not happened in any other community. He would like police to know that’s frustrating being young and a person of color. He said once he was stopped for not using his signal when he was trying to avoid hitting a car in front of him, another time for not using his signal when he said he did, and another time for not having a front license plate.
Hey shithead, law abiding citizens obey the law. You were pulled over for failing to obey the law. All those things you did – tailgating, moving lanes without a signal, not having a license plate on your fancy BMW – those are all against the law. You also forgot to mention that you had tinted widows, which would make it pretty hard for cops to racially profile you.
Then there’s the fact that there are no shortage of black and brown people who traffic Route 9 in Hadley every day. Like I said, it’s the gateway from Holyoke and Springfield to Amherst. The idea that a lucky sperm Longmeadow Indian kid from the highest caste would be specifically targeted is laugh out loud funny.
Additionally, here’s what a source tells us:
In August of 2017, a Hadley Officer of Puerto Rican descent stopped him for speeding and failing to signal. Two weeks ago, prior to his nutty FB review, he was stopped by a different officer for no front plate. At that time, his tint was tested because it’s so dark it’s right at the limit. The Cop who stopped him loves chapter 90 so much that he’s filled about eight books in the two months and somehow this guy is the only one hanging on the social media cross.
This really just pisses me off. There is legitimate racism in this country, but because of faux racism like this, it’s hard to believe anything you see or hear in the media. He’s just a wannabe baller from Longmeadow who thinks he’s a hot shit because he owns a liquor in a college town (which literally cannot possibly fail by it’s nature) and drive a BMW.
And since he gave the Hadley Police a 1 star review for doing their job, it would be a shame if his business page got flooded with 1 star reviews. Whatever you do, DO NOT FLOOD THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE WITH 1 STAR REVIEWS!!
Sad thing is that I’ve bought booze at this place plenty of times before. It’s right on Route 9 on the way to UMass. I had no reason NOT to buy from there. Now I do. Looks like Liquors 44 is gonna be the big winner here.
The bottom line is that he’s just trying to jump on the oppression train. But it does’t really work because Indians and other Asian folk completely reject self victimization. It’s why so many of them live in places like Longmeadow and Shrewsbury. Because they work their asses off and they don’t have excuses. At least their parents did. If Neal Patel is any indication the new generation seems to be embracing all the things their parents rejected.
