A Florida man was wrongfully detained in jail for 90 days after police officers accused the man of having cocaine in his car when in fact it was actually drywall powder. Karlos Cashe blames the entire event on racial profiling. Cashe was pulled over for his car’s headlights being out. Officers then asked Cashe if he had any illegal items in the car. Cashe repeatedly told the officers no and that the drywall they identified in the vehicle was merely drywall. The results from the lab came back and showed that the substance was negative for any sort of drug. However, Cashe was not released for another month after the results came back. Cashe was denied justice and spent 90 days in jail all because police officers racially profiled and mistakenly identified something like drywall for cocaine.
