Cop Draws Gun On Black Teenagers Having Snowball Fight
We guess we now have to add “playing in the snow” to the LONG list of things Black kids can’t do without being harassed by police. SMH.
This is the moment a foul-mouthed police officer pulled his gun on a group of teenagers – reportedly because they were having a snowball fight.
The officer, filmed walking from a patrol car, shouts ‘don’t f*****g move, guys!’ at the group of six people standing at a snowy intersection.
He demands they get down on their knees, and frisks one while pointing his gun towards the others, in footage thought to have been recorded in New Rochelle, New York, this week.
The video, made of two shorter clips stitched together, later shows the officer asking the group to stand up, and seemingly lets them go.
The woman recording the footage then says: ‘They were having a snowball fight – This group of guys was having a snowball fight and now a cop has a gun on them.’
New Rochelle’s police department has so far refused to comment on the video.
According to New Rochelle news blog Talk of the Sound, local sources confirmed that the officer was called to reports of a snowball fight.
This is completely ridiculous! It’s getting to be really dangerous to just live life being Black in America…
