As Black Lives Matter protests have spread across America, more and more people have begun sharing clips of police violence online. It’s not just happening at protests, either: sometimes police violence is captured in everyday life, which is what happened to Isaiah Benavides on June 2nd, outside a convenience store in Baytown, Texas.

That day, Benavides saw his friend, Jostin Moore, being stopped by a police officer who had previously been accused of targeting and harassing African Americans. Benavides took out his cellphone and hit record. He, along with his two friends, Skylar Gilmore and Isaiah Phillips, began questioning the arrest.
“They pulled you over for nothing.”

“‘Cause he Black, huh?

“That’s fucked up.”

“Black lives matter.”

Officer Nathaniel Brown, of the Baytown Police Department, approached the bystanders as Benavides filmed. He then slammed Gilmore onto the ground and kneed him in the face. Gilmore and Philips were both arrested, and Benavides caught it all on tape. After Benavides posted the video online, it went viral and eventually led to Brown’s firing.

I fully support filming cops, because there are a lot of dirty ones out there.

HOWEVER, I hate when people lie about a police incident and only use 4 seconds of footage and not the whole thing.   

It reminds me of how CNN edited that video of the dead gu's sister calling for peace, when in reality she called for burning down white areas.  This was from one of the last set of riots and looting.

Umm... how do you KNOW that they pulled him over for nothing other than he's black? Answer: You don't. It really is that simple.
