Travis Barker Is Pissed At Police For Profiling Him Because Of Tattoos

| Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersTravis Barker

It's hard out there for a pimp guy covered head-to-toe in tattoos.

Travis Barker believes he has been profiled by a Los Angeles police officer for the second time in about one year because of his ink.

He was driving somewhere in El Lay to pick up his daughter on Wednesday when a cop pulled him over.

Turns out his car was missing a front license plate, but Barker says he was treated like a violent gang banger and accused of "having drugs and weapons in the car."

After the Blink-182 drummer allowed his car to be unnecessarily searched, he was simply issued a ticket.

As far as he's concerned, police profiling for any reason just ain't cool and wants it to stop. His infraction was minor and the officer made a bigger deal out of it than he had to.

Not only was it embarrassing, but we imagine he was late to pick up daughter.

    From what I read elsewhere, he was missing a front license plate and his car was too heavily tinted, AND this is the second time he got a ticket for the same offense.s

    They were profiling the idiot's car! A car without a license plate and has tinted windows…hmmm, gang much?? Get over yourself Travis. And having as many tattoos as you have at the very least makes you a moron. Been tested for Hepatitis lately? Or would the lab be accused of profiling when they tell you you have Hepatitis and will die of liver cancer by the time you are 60?

    This kind of thing really boils my blood!! What a whinging little boy Travis Barker is! Seriously dude, you did not think that by getting all those tats that you would end up being judged and profiled?! What rock did you grow up under? Surely you were old enough to know that fairy tales do not exist when you had the plethora of tattoo's done?! I have 9 earnings and tattoo's and I know that some people judge me before I even open my mouth, but that is my choice, I do not go around bemoaning the misfortune I chose for myself….seriously grow up and take a reality pill!! Pfft…brat! Individuality means challenging the norm so don't be surprised when you choose to be an individual and you come up against challenges..doh

    Your a fucking idiot. Just because someone has tattoos does not mean they have hep you ignorant piece of shit. Reputable tattoo shops are extremely clean.

    Re: CORVETTE BARBIE – Tattoos mean that you're a scumbag? Ok Corvette Barbie… nice name you ignorant bitch. Just because someone has tattoos they should be labeled a scumbag? What's your claim to fame? Do you have money or talent like Travis or are you some fake ass bitch talking shit?? You're real tough talking shit on here about tattooed people. Do you also talk shit on Gays or spit racial slurs at people with skin of color?? It is the same thing. The world would be a better place without people like you polluting it.

    A missing plate is a no-brainer police stop. A search without a warrant is up to the driver to decide upon. Learn your rights.

    Wowser, I am not rich and famous and I have two forearm tattoos that I am required to cover up at work. I wear Ink Armor sleeves: Celebs can apparently get all the ink they want without a care in the world about having to work a 9 to 5 job.

    It's not at all because he generally looks like a douche-tweaker.

    Even if you aren't doing anything illegal, DO NOT authorize the police to search your car without a valid permit. Ever. It gives them the ability to ticket you, arrest you, or criminalize you for petty things. Remember to defend yourselves, people.
