This video has gone viral overnight with over 100K retweets.
Apparently, the driver was stopped for failing to signal at a turn. With a black man at the wheel, the police officer approached the car with his gun drawn.
He then pointed the gun at the driver.
For failing to signal???
I don’t know a single white person who’s been stopped for failing to signal and had a police officer draw a gun on them.
Clearly the officer repeats over and over “Ok” as his only response for legal reasons with the camera recording.
Americans need to have a discussion with our police offices. There needs to be a real dialogue.
If there was a reason to draw his gun, I’d have preferred the officer explain a rational reason. I’d have preferred he TALK with the driver. I’d have preferred he have a dialogue with the driver.
At least the officer kept calm.
