Black Man Stopped And Slammed To The Ground By White Cop

Black people can’t enjoy a morning stroll down the street!

According to The Free Thought Project, an Ohio man was sipping his morning coffee while taking a walk down the street when he was stopped and slammed into the wall by a white cop.

Charles Harrel, 29, pulled out his phone and documented his stalker, Cincinnati officer, Baron Osterman. As the video begins, Harrell says, “This is what we have to go through in Cincinnati,” as Osterman follows him on his bicycle. “You can’t be a black man and enjoy your morning, because the police are going to harass you, Cincinnati, Ohio. … Walking down the street; the cop just asked me if I have a problem.”

“Sir, I saw you crossing at the light,” Osterman said, noting that his vested authority gives him the power to deprive people of their freedom for allegedly crossing the street in a manner not fit for the police state.

Osterman claimed the man had jaywalked while Harrell says he crossed with the light. At this point, the situation is quickly escalated.

Harrell then says, “Sir, you were scaring me, sir. I don’t know why were following me, anyway. You were following me all the way down the street.”

For allegedly crossing the street the wrong way, Harrell is thrown to the wall, handcuffed, search, and arrested. The camera, which fell to the ground during the assault, continued to record the interaction.

Harrell is charged with a pedestrian violation, possession of less than 100 grams (3.5 ounces) of marijuana and resisting arrest.
