Viral Video Shows Ex-NFL Player Brandon Marshall Met By Security Guards, Deputy as He Tries to Move Into His New Florida Home

Former NFL wide receiver Brandon Marshall released an Instagram video on Thursday, Aug. 27, that showed him having an exchange with a security guard. Marshall was stymied at the entrance of the gated community as he was trying to move into his new home in Weston, Florida.

He then wrote in another post that outrage seen in current protests for racial equality must be turned into votes in this year’s presidential election.

It’s not clear what happened prior to what the video shows, as it starts with Marshall voicing his objection to the security guard calling the police on him at the front gate of the upscale suburban Miami subdivision. The clip was released at a time when the phenomenon of people calling the cops on Black citizens engaged in everyday activities is under a growing spotlight.

“This is the problem. I come here you feel uncomfortable, my first day moving into my new house because my name not on the list you call the cops,” Marshall yelled at the guard.

A Broward Sheriff’s deputy also appears in the video, but he merely waved at the camera without saying anything. The security guard then appeared to say that he was just doing his job by phoning the police.

“No you’re not trying to do your job,” Marshall told him. “There was no threat for you to call the cops. This what we’re seeing every single day … I got two kids in the car right now. We’re in Weston, Florida, one of the most affluent areas.”

The security guard responded to the former Denver Broncos star, but his words can’t be heard. But Marshall told him, “Yes, I know there’s other Black people that live here.”

In the video’s caption, Marshall addressed his reaction to the guard.

“It’s Real!!! I was so disappointed in myself for getting so emotional with my kids in the car BUT then I realized that being numb isn’t an option anymore. #vote,” he wrote.

Many of Marshall’s Instagram followers left comments under the video and told him that he responded appropriately.

“Don’t be disappointed dawg!! They need to be reminded & confronted,” wrote one follower.

“SPEAK AS YOU SEE FIT MY BROTHER .. no time to protect the system,” another person let him know.

The ex-NFL player wrote another Instagram message on the same day, next to a PSA where he encouraged people to vote this November.

“I’ve been watching and processing the same injustice and unrest as you all the last few months,” he wrote. “We have experienced this pain our entire life. The awareness and conversations being started by protests are great, but it can’t end there. I’m tired of talking that leads to nowhere. I’m calling on powerful networks to take a chance and showcase the most important message in our country right now.”

“The path toward real change flows through the ballot box,” added Marshall. “The power belongs in the people’s hands. I’m not telling you to vote or who to vote for. I’m reminding you that you CAN vote. It is your RIGHT to have your voice heard.”

The six-time Pro Bowl receiver played in the NFL from 2006 to 2018, starting his career with the Denver Broncos and ending it with the New Orleans Saints.

    There were other black residents in the neighborhood. He wasn’t on the list. This isnt a race issue. What is he crying about?

  2. Carmen says:

    The guard was just doing his job. Be upset at whoever was supposed to add your name to the “list” and apparently didn’t do it in time for your move in day. The guard would stop anyone trying to enter without being on the list, black or white or purple! This is a bogus “racism” claim.

  3. Gina says:

    This shot needs to stop immediately. People are so quick to judge you when they see you. Maybe people need to start minding their own business too. It would help a lot.

  4. Nyc79 says:

    People are so quick to take his side. But do we not
    Remember the Beandon Marshall of the NFL…
    He was a dick and a hot head.
    So how do we really know how he reacted to that security guard…

  5. Shaun murphy says:

    Brandon marshall you acted the right way?,the security guard was treating you like. You didnt belong ,i am white and this happens to often. This is 2020 and all the protests etc they just dont get it.sorry that your kids had to see this.it is mindboggling .i quess he dont watch football.

    If the the guards are doing their job why the fuck he called the cops??????? If it’s his job why do he need the police???? That’s the fucking issue !!!!!!

  7. Richard says:

    Police officers are the biggest gang in the world and they are bullies & cowards, that’s why they joined the force in the 1st place. And needless to say, most of them are Caucasian men and women…let’s do the math people!!!

  8. Leemc357 says:

    If he’s not on the list the apropriate thing for the security guard to do is call the main office to het confirmation, it can’t be the first that has happened…you don’t call the cops how will the cops know whether he’s a tennant or not. They see a Black man in an upscale neighborhood and they figure he don’t belong there, that’s why they call the cops.

  9. Leemc357 says:

    If he’s not on the list the apropriate thing for the security guard to do is call the main office to get confirmation; it can’t be the first time something like that has happened, don’t they have provedures…you don’t call the cops when there is no trouble, besides how will the cops know whether he’s a new tennant or not. The peoblem is everytime a white person sees a Black person they don’t know…their knee jerk reaction is to call the cops. It’s not like they don’t know what happens when the cops shows up…shit ends F up for the Black person. I mean, a Black man in an upscale neighborhood and they figure he don’t belong there, that’s why they call the cops. At this point it’s pretty clear white people want to see us dead…it’s not like they are not watching the news and don’t know what’s happening in the country. At some piont it will boil over…I hope y-all can deal with it when it does!

  10. Samosa says:

    I doubt it very seriously if that were a white family he would have called the police. Why not try to rectify the issue instead of acting like he was doing something illegal. And in front of his children. Just because there are other black people living there doesn’t mean a damn thing we’re talking about this Black man!

  11. Renee says:

    1st off you call your superiors or who’s ever in charge of that move in list being accurrate or up to date..And, then and only then do confirm reconfirm and do everything possible to rectify the situation…But, if your not in any immediate danger…Then, why oh why would you call the cops on a black man with kids in the car in broad daylight fool..And, for those of you clowns more than likely milky complexion saying yhe guard was only doing his job..No, the hell he was not..HE WAS TOTALLY DOING THE OPPOSITE PREVENTING A NEW RESIDENT FROM ENTERING HIS OWN HOME…calling the authorities at the wrong time on the wrong person these days only escalate an already bad decision..Idiots..

  12. Dave says:

    RACIST and trump SUCK!

  13. Shiloh p says:

    They called the cops because he was black. Plain and simple. This happens all the time. Until those of you believe that this happens it won’t stop. This man was able to walk away because of the area. Had he been in a different part of town guns would have been drawn. I hope he continues to be vocal.

    Nyc79 shut your ignorant racist azz up you are clearly missin principle here first you blame the person of the community responsible for having a resident listed, yea we get a security guards job not knocking him for doing it we could always say he half asses at his job too because the security could’ve contacted the necessary party to confirm instead of coming off as if he didn’t belong because he is of color so never mind what you felt about him personally that’s irrelevant

  15. Matt says:

    Moving into a gated community probably has policy and procedure which should br applied consistently for all regardless of race. If a person is not listed, does step two say call the police or call your superior to see whether the person should be on the list. If the second step is to call the police, and the guard does that uniformly without regards to race then I am ok with his actions. I would wonder about the new neighborhood in which I just moved, but that represents the crazed policy for which I paid millions of dollars. If the policy says escalate to a superior and the guard did not he should be written up and even terminated depending on the underlying circumstances.

    IT IS A RACE ISSUE!! Had it been any other Race, the guard would’ve taken their word & let in!! However, this could’ve been avoided if the guard just called the HOA to verify, instead of calling the police…there was no threat & so unnecessary!!

    The X NFL player must be total stupid and yes he is trying make it about politics and race. But stupid is stupid regardless of who says it. If he wasn’t on the home owners list then that is his or the realtor Fault, the guard was just doing his job regardless of a black or white person.
    These professional sports people may be rich but total assholes and STUPID
    It’s like Damn u dumb,
    Now u know why trump needs to win, this guy is a 100% racist

  22. Tanya Ellison says:

    “What’s he crying about”? “Other black people live in the neighborhood”. LMAO! The guards have gotten to know who those black people are ( probably through some type of other more subtle harassment), being he wasn’t on the list doesn’t necessarily mean it’s security’s job to call the police! First step could of been to call whomever to confirm his presence but guess cause he’s black he doesn’t deserve the courtesy huh? Their only job is to call the police huh? I can’t stop laughing to keep from crying these days- some people will just never see it or don’t want to but they have their opinions though. Guess I’ll be laughing myself to my grave because with people around who want to think we imagine racism it will never end!

  23. Tiffany says:

    Some people are quick to say, “this was not a race issue” or ” be mad at whoever left his name of the list” but the security guard could have easily phoned his supervisor. This IS about race! We have to admit people her scared when they see a black man, PERIOD! Had this been a man of another race, there would have been a different outcome. I am not calling the security guard racist because I do not know him, but we all need to admit we have biases and that this narrative is all too familiar.

  24. Andrew says:

    This is absolutely ludicrous! I do believe that people are stereotyped due to the color of their skin, clothes, sexual orientation, religion, etc. However, I do believe that in the year 2020 systemic racism is absolutely not as big of an issue or problem as the mainstream media will lead you to believe. Sure, there are the select few ignorant people that will always believe a certain way, but you will always have that. Liberals keep the ideology of systemic racism alive in the minds of whoever they can, especially in the minds of minorities because they absolutely have to have the votes of minorities to be elected into office. News flash to all minorities… DEMOCRATS don’t care about you! They enslave your minds to get you to vote for them. I am a minority. However, I have knowledge and see things for what they really are, therefore, my mind cannot be enslaved.

    If it’s a gated community, shouldn’t be allowed to enter without evidence.
    THAT’S WHY IT’S GATED!!!!!

  26. Gina says:

    Why as security he did not contact the HOA OFFICE to inquire of a new home owner. Before calling a police officer. How you approach a situation determines the course of action its obvious a security guard didn’t approach the situation properly. He should have been aware of a empty property on the complex grounds . A truck and persons moving in is totally different from moving out. Security didn’t handle it properly. Its clear his actions were because he was Black. And his actions on the NFL Field as a player is irrelevant to him being a home owner and unjustifiably profiled.

  27. Steve Kopecy says:

    The guy that posted that Brandon Marshall was a dick was rivht. Anyone that has ever watched an NFL game with him playing (especially in Chicago) know this to be true. Im sure that the guard was just doing his job and the real Brandon Marshall came out and threw one of his famos temper tantrums and showed his true racial colors in front of his children. Still trying to show that hes the big man! Im sure that the situation would have been better if he had approacbed it in a nicer way than he always does! Its called being a human being, not a spoiled, rich dick!!!

  28. Auggie says:

    This was not about Brandon Marshall over overreacting, it was the mear fact that the security officers called the police on another “BLACK MAN” instead of the office to validate him living their! Of course we already know how most white police officers react to a Black man when he’s
    upset over his civil right being abused.

  29. Jake Harrison says:

    No you are not doing your job. You are suppose to rectify the problem, not call the police and waste their time. You call someone and get clarification, that’s how you do your job. If it was a Caucasia you would have moved mountains to figure out what’s going on. You figured his looks does not fit the description on that property. Saying that other black people live here makes it even worse.

  30. Nikki says:

    Yes, It’s disconnected him why they need to call police unnecessary the only thing he is color by the way I know all ways in Florida the call police for black peoples😳

  31. Queen says:

    I honestly don’t think the security guard was doing him that way bc he was black. I just think that by Marshall not being on the list, be was protecting his job. I did hear in the video where the guard wanted to talk to Marshall but the video ended. I understand Marshall thought this was a radical racial issue, but I’m a black female, and reading the info and watching the video, neither party meant any harm to each other. Marshall should’ve called the leader or whoever he got the house from to Mae sure everything was great, bc in a gated community, guards do ask questions and many will do their jobs, NO MATTER what our background history is. This was all a misunderstood situation. I apologize on behalf of both sides.

  33. Fp says:

    Carmen and D until you have walked in his shoes you won’t understand. The guard could have taken other steps to verify that he was a new resident.

  34. If he was white, they would have resolved the issue not call t he police. Bull…

  35. Tess Mc dermott says:

    This man reacted appropriately, with all the cops on black peoples necks, which is a cruel thing to do to anyone, and it relates to the kneeling for the football players, cops are “kneeling” on protesters necks in retaliation, not so civilized! Im white, big deal, but I’ve seen enough killings of people of color for no reason and its making me sick and I believe its making the world sick, and angry, and what happens when people get angry, they want to get even. I’ve had a brother get killed by a white guy who knew the police, and he never took a breathalyzer test as he drove down a street pretty fast on a dark rainy night, he got away with murder, its still going through with the courts. But my brother is gone, my stomach is sick, I grieve for all these people along with my brother please stop. You’re killing not only these innocent people, but you’re killing the souls of the living and making us sick. Please stop hating on innocent people, you’d be surprised at how things can change, they say 1 bad apply doesn’t spoil the whole bunch, how many bunches are there? Each bunch has a few spoiled apples, thats a lot of apples . Im not against cops,but just protect people instead of using your badge to which ever way you choose

  36. Just me says:

    Did you moved into a upper neighborhood? Security guard’s job is to make sure residents is safe , doesn’t matter who you are, they need to check everyone walk in there. Got nothing to do with racist as you call it. You would expect security guard check everyone enters the building if you been living there.

    Carmen you miss the point It is not that his name wasn’t on the list the racism is that he called the cops instead of talking to the man. His outrage is that the cop where not necessary for this instance. He could have call the office to see what happened he could have instructed Brandon to call the office but he called the cops that was not needed to be done.

    I visited my sister-in-law in Florida who also lives in a gated community. She forgot to add me to the visitors list. I gave security her name and address and they wouldn’t let me pass. She had to drive to the gate so they would let me in. You choose to live in a gated community with security for a reason, privacy, safety and security. Although he was upset, he now knows his family will be protected. The only issue I see is someone didn’t do their job and add him to the list. That’s where his frustration should be directed.

He could have called whomever provided the list to see if Marshall name should have been on it. THE POLICE ARE KILLING US SO YES CALLING THE POLICE AS YOUR FIRST REACTION IS RACIALLY MOTIVATED.

    I would hope you would have thanked the guard for doing a great job and keeping your GATED, AFFLUENT, UPSCALE, HIGH-END, PRIVILEGED FILLED new neighborhood safe by not allowing people WHO AREN’T ON THE APPROVED LIST access to it!

  50. Michael A Williams says:

    It is plain to see this was not a race issue. What he was experiencing is the very reason he was moving in this type of community: just any one can’t just drive up and come in! For the security! The guard handled it right. His name wasn’t on the list, so he can’t get in; tell him so. If he persist in trying to get in, call the police. We need to stop making everything between black and white a race issue and blaming it on the current administration. We had a black president for 8 years and all these same things we complain about existed and stood. What will a man’s shadow do that he physically didn’t do himself?

  51. Will Clark says:

    Yes the guard will stop anyone not on the list black or white, but will he call the police on a white man and his children?? Or will he talk to them and figure out someone didnt put his name on list as new home owner? BTW driving a bentley benz or rolls royce smh….

  52. Calvin says:

    You don’t call the police for an issue of this nature! You check with the Home Owners Association(HOA). I live in a Florida gated community and that’s what you do. It takes a few minutes! Unless the person is not assaulting the security guard, or physically forcing entry, there is no n.vneed to call police. A brand new resident who is awaiting an entry pass can show a document from closing. Weston like Boca Raton is mostly Jew, is not favorable to blacks.

  53. Cj says:

    For those defending the guard, he didn’t need to call the cops. If Marshall want on the list, the first call should be to the HOA. It’s a gated community. They have one. That’s why this is a racist action. The guard had the power to affect this man’s life and he made a poor choice

  54. Tunisia Morse says:

    There is another protocol to take when someone is not on the list. There’s a number they call to verify move in a if the name did not make the list. The security guard over reacted as usual which could have led to Brandon Marshalls death.

    I’m sure this security guard had another outlet he could’ve exercised without the police. I can not believe this has never happened with another tenant black or white name that had not yet been added.

  57. I understand that he is doing his job but that wasn’t a situation where he needed to call the police. I’m quite sure they have the appropriate people to call for when someone name is not on the list and I’m quite sure this isn’t the first time someone name hasn’t been on the list instead of him saying let me find out what’s going so we can get this resolved he calls the police.

    If he were white the police would not have been called.

Probably not..He would have taken another route to figure out the problem…your not going to tell me Everytime someone isn’t on the list he calls the police…Is that what they told him to do in his job description…call the police on anyone who isn’t on the list…Let’s be for real here

    We don’t have to know what was said prior to footage. The security guard could have called management. If it was Before or After office hours, there is Always someone in management that can be reached. And judging that Black man on his past…Is WRONG.

    I live in a gated community in Florida. If your name isn’t in the list you don’t get in — no matter what your color. He probably pulled the “do you know who I am?” routine. The guard was doing his job. Kissing up and striking down is a horrible character flaw.

    I would be upset if I were him too. It’s not the guards fault. Who should’ve put him on the list? I don’t know how it works in Florida but a good Realtor should’ve made sure that instructions were given for the gate. Just like handing them the keys. I don’t think it’s a race problem at all.
    Think about the other side of this. If Marshall were living there, would he want a fan or anyone else through the gate? He’s the one that said there are other Black Families in the neighborhood. THIS IS NOT RACIAL!!! It’s another problem being made into a racial issue.

    The way i see it they didn’t add your name to the list that means they didn’t want you there so find another place to move too

    @ Comments 1 & 2 actually its not a bogus racial
    claim.
    The security guard did not act appropriately, his job
    was not properly done. If the ex football player name
    was not on the list, then the guard should have called
    the property manager or whoever he needed to call to
    see if maybe there was a mistake. Which there obviously was, but NO he wasted tax payers money for
    completely a non violent situation that could have
    been handled totally different. The fact that other blacks
    live there dont mean shit. They probably cant throw a
    reception without getting the police called for
    every little noise they make.
    This is some sick ass shit, Im sick of it. What goes
    around, comes around…THEY WILL ALL HAVE THEIR DAY!!!!

  73. Darls says:

    The guards should have contacted the HOA office and not called the cops. This is exactly what we are talking about. Just so quick to judge.

    The security guard didn’t have to call the police. That was the point. He should have called to see why his name was not on the list first. He knew who to call. Whoever didn’t put his name on the list is also an issue that needs to be addressed.

  77. KC says:

    To the people saying the security was just doing his job, I’m feeling you’re not BIPOC, do you believe he calls the police EVERY single time someone’s name is not on the list? Also, based on the history of police brutality do you understand why BIPOC would be concerned with a police call especially if there was no crime committed? If it wasn’t about race why wouldn’t the guard say, “I have to call the police just because it’s our policy and for no other reason.” I’d like to see the police logs on how many calls the department takes to that booth.

    Yes, he wasn’t on a list to move into his gated community. So the question remains if this wasn’t a race issue they why were the police notified? If you say the guard was doing his job you’re probably racist. Let’s pretend Brandon Marshall was a white man moving into his gated community, would the cops been all notified had this white person not been on a list? NO, we all know the answer to that. Why wasn’t Mr. Marshall treated with common decency of someone who just purchased a home? If he was white security would be apologetic and explained the scenario they also would have treated him with dignity. If B.M. was white the cops being notified wouldn’t even be an option. Reserve white privilege affect.

  84. Jean Saunders says:

    Critical thinking. Instead of calling the police the security guard should have called management to find out why his name is not on the list. The security prejudged him as another black man being at a place he should not be. This goes to show management only wants him money and does not respect him. Affluent community and his name is not on the list. WOW

  85. Ray Evans says:

    As a former security guard he was doing his job your name not on the list you are not getting in sorry he should have called and had name put on list The guard would have been fired for not doing his job quit crying

  86. Madison says:

    Calling the cops is the answer? What about finding out why his name wasn’t on the list??? Yes, racism! Did his dreadlocks throw him off? Until you experience racial profiling, please take a seat. There was no need for the police to be called for a simple mix up. I’m sure this man has paid enough for “his” new home to have the cops called on him!

  87. Deidra says:

    How about call the people that would have needed to add him to the list? Why the cops? Was he a threat or is that the protocol? He can’t be the first person not added to this list but I bet his realtor or the management co or HOA would know the answer. Cops are for helping with crimes, threats, danger. This sounds like an over reaction or lack of protocol by the security guard.

    This was not a racist incident. It was an incident in which a new resident unfortunately did not have his name on the list of movin’s. It does not matter what color, nationality or origin. If your name isn’t on the list you’re not gonna get in. Privately hired Security for gated neighborhoods have to be careful. As a white man I have been stopped numerous times trying to get into a gated neighborhood and the security company had to call the resident to confirm who I was and that it was OK to let me in period that’s just the way it is. It is not a racial issue. It seems like people are making everything out to be a racial issue. That’s causing more division than anything which is also causing riots lootings burnings and division in this country. Brandon Marshall was a great football player and I believe him to be a decent guy. But he is off base here.

    I think he was already angry at what is going on in our country and rightfully so but the guard was doing his job and let’s say he allowed someone in who’s name was not on the list and they cleared his house out he would be livid. Rules are meant to be followed and your name was not listed as a move in. Security however should have called management not the police.

    It is a GATED COMMUNITY, with a guard, which means that you would have to be on the list of current residents/guests before you can be admitted into the subdivision. It has nothing to do with race if there are already other black residents living there. The guard was doing his job and following procedure by not permitting him entry without approval. The only person that he should be angry with is the person that failed to do THEIR job and have his name added to the list.

  133. Nyc79,Carmen, D : if you have time to leave such negative comments from the country is in such a disarray over the treatment of black people you’re part of the problem I need you three people at the top. Brandon Marshall career was always going to be the way it was because he was raised by single black mother his father went to prison and it was very hard for someone who had his dad around all the time to watch him go away I should know because my cousin raised this young boy. All you white commenters are racist pieces of shit and it is people like you in high and low places that have made people like Brandon Marshall’s career a living nightmare. And to the person who said that look at his whole football career obviously doesn’t know that people grow up people change and especially when you have a good support system around you and not a bunch of hecklers like yourself. That security guard could have got two little children shot but I guess he was doing his jobs he could also been doing his job by calling up to see if what mr. Marshall was saying was legit just like they would have done for any other white person

    I think you all are missing the point here. Regardless of who Brandon Marshall is.. dick or hot headed as many of you commenting may be at times, THE POLICE IS BEING CALLED ON BLACK FOLKS FOR NO REASON! AT ALARMING RATES. WE ARE SEEN AUTOMATICALLY AS A THREAT REGARDLESS OF OUR DEMEANOR. You are speculating that because he was hot headed or a dick in a hot headed dick sport that he must’ve shown this during the exchange with the security officer. Why are younguys like this? If this was a white guy, the security would’ve more than likely tried harder to validate his claim that he was a resident. Because blacks are seen as a threat, the police is being called for ANYTHING. THIS COUNTRY IS SO SAD. REFORM OF THIS SYSTEM SEEMS HOPELESS!!

  135. Charlie White says:

    If this was a bogus call then the security guard should have tip toed around it and asked for credentials I’d and requested from whoever the list of new owners moving into gated community I’ve got amazing stories even working security where white bosses at a location try to tell me or instruct me where we can or can’t go until they are told to mind there own business and are you my boss,no u aren’t but the mentality of some to be in control with whatever power they might be able to use, racism needs power to assert without it it’s a word or claim or an act perceived by the receiver of it! Still I’ve given white and blacks Asians Spanish the benefit of the doubt and checked out after allowing them to pass realizing they were telling the truth, actually he could have been followed and asked to show keys to location and then proceed or allowed to do his business of moving but the police called was not necessary without threats or threat of violence. Unless he felt threatened which he would have to explain because people being upset is an everyday occurrence For police or security,and not a conclusion of violence!

    This has nothing to do about not being on the list people..the security guard could’ve handled this differently.

He had every right to be angry. Im sure he paid millions for his new house and can’t even get to it. Again, of he were WHITE, that guard would have apologized for the mistake and fixed it. PERIOD.

    Police and other emergency services should be called if there is a fire, mufer, breaking and entering and if there is a threat to someone’s life.
    Emergency numbers should not be called because you are scared to let someone in a gated community. A true emergency was happening somewhere else. What a waste of tax dollars.

    This is systemic “RACISM” people. Although, many of you have not experienced it first hand and are impacted by it. I would say, your ignorance or inability to be truthful are part of the problem. As Brandon Marshall pointed out … the problem was not being left off the list … problem was the “Security” guard feeling a need to have to call the police as a first action. I’m pretty if someone is not on a list the security protocol is to first call law enforcement. But if truth be told … this “Security” guard saw a big black man with a non-traditional hair style and pegged him as some sort of “Thug” (another racist micro aggressive word some of you people call black people) and called for back up. Now, if he looked like Ben Carson maybe protocol would have been a call to management to verify and not law enforcement.

  171. Toska Palmer says:

    Let me get this right. If a person who says they “OWN” a home there and is moving in tries to enter, the Management Company isn’t called?

    The police is the authority figure in the private complex?

    A transaction that large was surely communicated to the staff.

    Note to self: Don’t spend 1 million dollars where a $12.00 security guard has the authority to disallow entry to your home.

    Something similar happened where TI the rapper and a security guard had the audacity to question whether he lived in one of the million dollar homes.

    Buy land and build your home. Don’t waste time with this nonsense.

    Look the overseer of said complex can question if you can afford to be there because HE CANT.

    To Carmen on here…since when is calling the cops a solution to not being on a list…that’s exactly the issue how hard it it to take his info..call his realtor..whom I would say is pretty exclusive for that neighborhood. or try 1st to get confirmation or something other than calling the cops..like dude was trespassing. You dont get it cause you just dont. I will assume neither you D. or Brandon’s detractors understand how calling the cops 1st is an act of racism…assuming he doesnt belong because guard decides he doesnt cant be anything else. if there is a list there has to be someone the guard uses to confirm that list call them 1st. Anyway I wouldn’t expect you D. or people of the mindset you have to get it and that’s ok but please stay in you very narrow lane so that we can get past you and leave yall behind come November.

    He sounds like an idiot making up fake racism lol. Every gated community has restricted access. If you attempt to enter and are not on the registration list the guard will deny entry to everyone and anyone even a pro football player. If you refuse to vacate the area, they are instructed to observe and report to police and not take matters into their own hands.

    I hope they don’t let OJ into my or your Florida gated community bro! Think about that…

    I am white and was moving into my new home that was vacant someone called the police on me .Which is really dumb cause who has a moving truck and puting thing in a vacant home? I never thought i am white that. Is that why they are calling police? But black people always think it cause they are black.Was working at dominions once and this black guy sued them for being racist. I told him they treat everyone bad here your treated like everyone else bad. He said i am black so I can sue for racism so i am your white u cant

  179. Jason says:

    The guard could have just mentioned ‘protocal’ and informed him what he ‘had’ to do with his job and fine. The player could have just showed a video of him as a football player and see if he recognized him… I don’t know him as an NFL player but if I learned that it was true… I’d probably just let him in-also bc we ARE getting a lot of that right now. I feel like people nowadays (key word..) need to present themselves better. That is all

    Everybody knows that you can’t go through I get a community without being let in by a resident or proving that you are a resident. Neither of which was a case here in this gentleman decided to become belligerent and turn into a racial issue which it isn’t. The fact that this would make news is just a sign that the media is desperate to propagate the Narrative that everyone is against blacks. The problem here is that People actually respond to this And it goes viral while so many real incidences of hate crimes happen and they are just ignored by the media and society because it doesn’t fit the narrative. As far as I could tell this football player was being racist against everyone else trying to bring color into this situation. This is when I get disappointed.

    It’s a gated community. If your name us not on the list or there is no one to validate you, you don’t get in. My husband is a white real estate appraiser who has traveled over an hour to get into a gated community to conduct an appraisal and was denied access because someone forgot to let the guards know he was coming. It was a waste of his time but he didn’t blame the guard and accuse him of being racist. This is why you pay extra to live in a guarded, gated community. Geez

    I don’t care if he played football or not. He is still a Black Man at the end of the day and should have been treated with respect and at least an attempt to help solve his issue other than calling the cops on him. His kids were in the car as well smh some just don’t get it.

    The whole point he is TRYING to make is, what reason did he have to contact the police? What are the regulations? Apparently he was NOT made aware of them by who did the move in. I wonder what the other residents are saying? Hmmmmm could be,
    Gee Frank when you first moved in you weren’t on the list either,but the Guard helped locate the problem….cops was never called! That is why the uproar. It’s an undercover angle saying he doing his job… So his job is to call the cops and bother every time a new resident moves in and forgets to put there name on list? I think not. Open your hearts and minds and Try understanding what he upset about

    Trying to Stir It Up Brandon! Your name wasn’t on the list, he didn’t pick you out because you are black. That’s a disgusting claim! He called the cops because you got agressive with him. He had no other course but to allow police to take care of it,, which is his standard protocol with his job duties. You want it in but you weren’t on the list. If I were trying to move in on my moving day, and my name weren’t was not on the list, he would have kept me out too! And yes I would have been aggravated too, but totally inappropriate to call it a race thing!

    If the guard was doing his job, I’m almost positive that would’ve required him to call management instead of the police for residency confirmation, as he couldn’t have been the first and only person who’s information got mixed up in the system/list?! So yes, he had every right to be mad, maybe we can confirm the correct protocol after we see if the guard is still employed afterwards.

    You can say he was doing his job but all he saw was a black man trying to get inside the gate you can believe what you want that’s why security guard called the police it is what it is face the facts he saw black man trying to drive though and the security guard got scared thank God he didn’t have a hood on him he would of shot him in his back

  211. Richard says:

    The point isn’t whether or not he was on the list, the point is that there were other ways to handle it than call the police. This was not a police matter. Clearly had their been a threat the Sriffs Officer on the scene would have reacted differently. A realtor, someone in the home owners association anyone could have been called but the police. This is what we as black people face everyday. I feel his pain as I am an Ivy league educated attorney yet when I moved into my home I noticed the police rode by my home 4 times in an hour, slowing down and looking as they reached my home. I have been here 5 years now and I have yet to see one police car on my street since the day I moved in.

    Keep on responding until they get it. Anytime someone comes into my workplace, I don’t turn them away just because they don’t have appointments.

  220. moo615 says:

    there was no reason to call the cops. Brandon Marshall is right there was no there. what happened to calling the management company or their superiors to fix the problem. the 1st call doesn’t always have to be to the police. as far has brandon being a hot head like nyc79 wanted to bring up. you do know that he had a mental illness that he didnt know about at 1st and then got diagnosed and became a spokesperson and advocate so that doesnt fly also. this is not 10 years ago Brandon marshall. and he really did something I’m sure the duty would have done something he was just standing there didnt say a word cause the call was bogus to begin with.

  221. JON DOOR says:

    Yes, this is wrong. Is there no official he could have called, to talk to the guard? The realtor?
    Doing IT support, I once talked to a lady in a ritzy golf neighborhood in Atlanta. An exclusive address.
    ‘Must be nice’, I said.
    She then told me how it wasn’t. New-wealth sports stars were moving in. They were noisy and often had big parties. Houses became hard to sell, and the value was dropping. Everyone was stuck!
    I’m guessing they were mostly NFL and NBA stars, and mostly black. Some cultures are louder than others. She lived in a mansion – and I felt sorry for her.
    Noisy cars, noisy neighbors – good luck on stopping it!

  222. Caucasian troll says:

    And you all are sticking up for the guard I’ll assume because you know them personally and of course know their motives as well as the policy on calling law enforcement for non violent incident that could simply be verified? The guard couldn’t just make a call ? You over simplify to drive your own narratives that racism and bigotry doesn’t exist.

  223. Ruby Bolton says:

    Instead of calling the police because he did not see the new resident’s name on the list, the security guard should have called the office where the list was generated to request an updated list/verification that this was indeed a new resident! The police should not have been called until all means to verify residency had been exhaulted. This was a no-brainer. So sad.

    I’m convinced that you all miss the whole point on purpose. If someone in MOVING INTO a community and their name isn’t on the list, if you’re really looking to defuse the situation, you call the HOA or whoever makes the list. Not the cops. Especially not now when the country is in an uproar about bad cops and African Americans.

    They would have stopped ANYONE who wasn’t on the list. That is to protect the residents of the gated community. That is why they pay for security. The police being called was unnecessary. The proper action from BOTH sides of this should have been: Who makes the list? Contact them now. Let’s get this straightened out. Let’s show the children the proper way to handle this.
