A black man, Larnie Thomas, was STOPPED and harassed in Edina, Minnesota for walking in the street where there was construction work blocking the sidewalk! As seen in the video the white officer grabs him and says that they are going to need to have a talk! Another police officer comes and they put him in hand cuffs and arrest him! He was not even in the middle of the street, but walking the white line of the shoulder.
The black man is clearly seen upset and angered in the video because the plain clothes officer would not take his hands off of him. This further exasperated the situation. The victim is heard screaming “You got your hands on me” being clearly disrespected by this officer.
In the meantime, the woman videotaping the incident is a white woman and of course she suffers no repercussions for videotaping the incident as evidence on how black men are treated in this country.
Eventually a second officer arrived on the scene and put Thomas in handcuffs, even though Thomas and Rowles were still very unclear as to what he did to warrant being detained.
