Whether they're off-duty, on-duty, or somewhere in between, white cops seem to get a kick out of making black teens fear for their lives.
A new not-so-shocking video surfaced showing an off-duty police officer pinning down a black teenager and threatening to kill him, all because the boy was helping out a friend who was on the officer's property.
According to WGNTV, it all started when a few teenage boys got into a group fight. Everyone was able to get away...besides one. Jordan Brunson, 15, noticed that his friend was left behind and was sitting on the officer's porch after looking pretty beat.
As Jordan continued to examine his friend, the Lansing, Illinois cop ran outside and immediately started screaming at the him.
“You guys are on my fucking property!" the cop screamed as he pinned Jordan to the ground.
“Let me go!” Jordan said.
“No, you are on my fucking property. I could fucking kill you,” the officer responded.
"You guys came to the wrong house!" shouted a woman in the background.
The Lansing Police Department released a brief statement regarding the incident: “An off-duty Lansing police officer, outside on his personal property, became involved when he was approached by two other subjects involved in the fight. One of the juveniles had visible minor injuries, and the other was temporarily detained for further investigation until the arrival of on-duty officers.”
The cop's actions will most likely be slipped under the rug with the rest of the unqualified cop stories, but Jordan’s aunt, Lashawna Brunson, wants justice.
“If he wasn’t an officer, just a regular man would they do the same thing? No, he’d be locked up,” she said.
We can only dream...
