I typically don’t post videos with foul language on this site but… this is one of those instances that I want to show the raw, bitter, real truth as to what happens to individuals, typically black men still here in America. The police are sure to say that there is something that we don’t see on the video. Surely you can see from what the man is saying even before the main confrontation… he is minding his own business. Is that a crime? “This is what we have to go through in Cincinnati, harassment” 29-year-old Charles Harrell said. “You can’t be a black man and enjoy your morning, because the police are going to harass you in Cincinnati, Ohio.” Filming his trip, Harrell recorded his interaction with police officer Baron Osterman, who can be seen trailing behind Harrell on a bicycle. Sharing that the police officer asked if he “had a problem,” Harrell noted that this was a normal occurrence in his hometown.
This is senseless and I am so happy that cellphone cameras are now available so that we can see firsthand the injustice that is done in this country. This really makes me angry and I think that something needs to be done with the overzealous cops. I’m not going to let this ruin my day but this makes no sense whatsoever!
