Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People
A cell phone video shows a January incident in St. Paul, Minnesota. Police officers rough up a black man who was apparently just sitting in a skyway before being approached. He had been waiting to pick up his kids.
John Iadarola: “That’s hard to watch.”
Michael Shure: “It’s important to watch, though, because for any type of change to happen, you have to watch all of this. You have to see the dogs in 1963 in Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham and be appalled by it. You have to see John Lewis getting struck over the head on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama and be appalled by it to see that there needs to be change someplace. You have to watch these videos and see that it is a reality.”
