WATCH: Traffic stop turns violent after officer pulls weapon on black man for ‘speeding’

Published

A routine traffic stop turned violent after a Texas officer tried to arrest a black man for allegedly speeding.

In a video shared by Twitter activist @_SJPeace_ on Tuesday, an officer, who appears to be Mississippi law enforcement, tells the driver that he is being “detained.”

“For what?” the man asks. “That’s what I’m trying to get an understanding of. You had an attitude when I looked in your eyes.”

“Get your hands behind your back!” the officer demands.

“Why am I being arrested?” the man wants to know.

“You’re being arrested for speeding!” the officer snaps. “And now you’re resisting arrest.”

“That ain’t what you told me,” the man replies.

The officer tries to put handcuffs on the driver, but he resists. The officer quickly pulls out a Taser or other weapon.

“Please don’t do that!” a woman shouts from off camera.

The driver indicates that he will wait for backup instead of complying with the officer’s order to “get on the ground.”

Backup quickly arrives and the two officers team up to forcefully take the driver down.

In a Facebook post, Porsha Shields said she recorded the video and that the officer was aggressive towards her.

“I truly felt that I should have never told him I was pregnant because it seemed like he became more aggressive…And, what hurts the most is knowing that my 4 year old son witnessed me screaming, crying and getting assaulted as this event will psychologically impact us forever…” she remarked.

The video shows a speaker, who is black, talking about systemic racism.

"They have found ways to cage our babies, separate families, mistreat and abuse us," the woman says before she was interrupted by Bennett.

"What about abortion?" Bennett exclaims.

Published

on

White House aide Kellyanne Conway on Sunday insisted that Democrats do not have a "constitutional basis" to embarrass President Donald Trump by conducting an impeachment inquiry.

Conway made the remarks while speaking to FOX News Sunday guest host Bill Hemmer.

"Complete nonsense," she said when asked about the impeachment proceedings. "They need to get a messaging meeting and they need to read the constitution of the Democratic Party."

"Americans, the Congress, they work for you," Conway continued, talking over the FOX host. "And they're wasting your money and your time trying to impeach a president where there are no high crimes and misdemeanors."
