A video is making the rounds on line showing police officers in Midland, Texas, drawing their guns on a man after they say he failed to stop at a stop sign. They later arrested him for evading arrest.
Police can be heard telling 21-year-old Tye Anders to follow their directions while family friends of Anders who were on the scene beg police not to shoot him. Speaking to NewsWest 9, police say Anders failed to stop at a stop sign and then continued in his vehicle until he arrived at his grandmother’s home.
Anders has since hired a civil rights attorney Justin Moore, who had a different version of event than the police account.
“We believe and maintain that this was a stop based on racial profiling and there was no traffic violation,” Moore said.

NASA astronauts entered the International Space Station on Sunday after a landmark 19-hour journey on the first crewed US spacecraft in nearly a decade, a triumph for SpaceX and private enterprise.

Moscow eases lockdown despite high virus caseload
Shopping malls and parks are set to reopen in Moscow on Monday as the Russian capital eases coronavirus restrictions despite having the world's third-largest caseload.
The relaxation of the confinement orders in Moscow, the epicentre of Russia's outbreak with a population of more than 12 million, comes after President Vladimir Putin announced the epidemic had passed its peak in the country.
Under lockdown since March 30, residents of Europe's most populous city were until now only allowed to leave their homes for brief trips to shop, walk dogs or travel to essential jobs with a permit.
