NFL Player kept from seeing dying mother in law

Houston Texans running back Ryan Moats was pulled over for running a red light in Dallas and was kept in a hospital parking lot while his mother-in-law was dying of breast cancer and he did not get to see her until after she passed. The officer used extremely overzealous behavior and even pulled out a gun and almost had them arrested and showed no emphathy when Moat tried to tell him his mother-in-law was dying. The traffic stop took over 13 minutes until they were finally let go. Moats did not identify himself as an NFL player.

This is obviously an example of racial profiling. While you cannot be prepared for every situation in law enforcement you would think that the officer would show some discretion but some police feel the need to take power into their own hands in situations like these.
