A video recorded by a Black man during a traffic stop is gaining attention from people across the nation because of its depiction of driving while Black.
In the video, originally posted by Randell Minott on Facebook, an unidentified officer is blasted for allegedly drawing his gun during a traffic stop for failing to use a turn signal.
The original caption for the video read:
"MICHEAL BENNET a rich football player and they threw his ass on the floor and pushed a gun in his head for nothing and still you lost souls still jump on every video defending these dudes. If you have a problem with the way I talk to a cop who ILLEGALLY POINTED A GUN AT MY HEAD then LEAVE THIS COUNTRY (see what I did there #LOL) Because last I check its in my constitutional rights #GoAmerikkka
"If he made a mistake and killed me him and his partner would of made up any kind of lie to get him off...even if they had to make me seem like I was up to something. The day a POLICE OFFICER snitches on his fellow BAD OFFICER and GET REWARDED FOR IT instead of bashed I will start trusting police... until then you know the drill!!!"
"You came to the car with your gun out," Minott says in the video. "For what? Do you have no conscience? Do you see what the fuck is going on TV?"
During parts of the video, the officer keeps his hand on his gun and holds on to his vest while occasionally saying, "OK."
Minott has made the rest of his social media accounts private and has not spoken out about the incident. He also appears to be a musical artist under the name Jimmy Spliff, comes from East Orange, New Jersey.
