Black Mother Files $2 Million Lawsuit After Police Hold Her At Gunpoint In Front Of Her Kids
A black Texas woman is rightfully headed to court in a $2 million lawsuit against the Forney police chief and the city of Forney after cops held her at gunpoint in front of her four children last August when they mistook her car for one involved in a robbery.
According to earlier reports from CBS Dallas, the woman complied with all instruction given by officers after being pulled over
Police stopped the woman despite her car not matching the initial vehicle description given to 9-1-1 operators because they assumed her children were robbery suspects after the person who called 9-1-1- described the suspect vehicle as “occupied by four black males.” The mother was in the car with her two children and two godchildren – ages 6, 8, 9 and 10.

A woman is seeking $2 million in damages in a lawsuit against the city of Forney and its police chief after officers mistakenly pulled her over for a traffic stop in August.
Police say officers searching for four men on Aug. 9 stopped Kametra Barbour’s vehicle. Her 6-year-old son and two goddaughters were inside of the vehicle at the time.
Authorities say Barbour was briefly handcuffed, but that an officer apologized later to her, saying he and the others were called out to the wrong car. Her lawsuit alleges negligence, false imprisonment and says her constitutional rights were violated.
How in THE hell do you mistake four young children (and two of them female, at that) for FOUR BLACK MEN???? We hope this woman wins her case and then some because this was truly ridiculous!
