All three were then placed in handcuffs after they exited the house."They keep their guns drawn on us until all of us were in cuffs," Thorne said."So, that was a little traumatizing I guess because under the current climate of things, you just don't know what's going to happen."
Brown said soon after being handcuffed he was able to explain that he was a realtor trying to sell the home, and showed the officers his credentials.WyomingPoliceDepartment say officers immediately removed the handcuffs after realizing their mistake and explained that they were responding to a report of a break-in from a neighbor.
The department had previously responded to a burglary at the same address on July 24, which resulted in a suspect was arrested and charged for unlawful entry.Police said the person who called 911 said that the suspect had returned and was inside the home again. headtopics.com
Brown told WOOD he believes that the officers' response would have been differently if the three of them were white."The level of the response and the aggressiveness of the response was definitely a take back, it really threw me back," Brown said.
"I feel pretty anxious, or nervous or maybe even a little bit scared about what do I do to protect myself if I'm going to show a home and the authorities just get called on a whim like that," he added."Am I just automatically the criminal? Because that's pretty much how we were treated in that situation."
Speaking to WOOD, Wyoming Police Captain Timothy Pols denied race played a part in the officers' actions and they followed protocol by placing them in handcuffs."The department was responding to a call for service, there wasn't a racial element to it," Pols said.
In a statement toa Wyoming Police spokesperson confirmed:"On August 1, our officers responded to a 911 call from a neighbor reporting that a house was being broken into."Officers and the caller were aware that a previous burglary had occurred at this same address on July 24 and that a suspect was arrested and charged with unlawful entry during that incident. headtopics.com
"The caller indicated that the previously arrested suspect had returned in the same vehicle and had again entered the house. When the officers arrived, there were people inside of the residence in question."Officers asked the individuals to come out of the house and placed them in handcuffs per department protocol. After listening to the individuals' explanation for why they were in the house, officers immediately removed the handcuffs.
"The Wyoming Department of Public Safety takes emergency calls such as this seriously and officers rely on their training and department policy in their response. The response to this incident was shaped around the information available to officers at the time."

please o tell me please why dont you put a stop to police thinking they are gods gift to law and order and yet a good percentage of the time they are the bad people. And it happens again. Thank God no one was shot because a police officer felt threatened or feared for their lives. Yeah in a state that has one of the lowest per capita black population, race had nothing to do with it. If it was a white male wearing a cowboy hat, no hand cuffs would ever come out. Why not just ask for I’d before putting the cuffs on.
