This makes me sick

My stomach actually is upset. I shouldn’t have watched this.

But, fuck. I can’t believe someone gets treated like this over a minor traffic issue, and one where no one was really hurt. Clearly the young lady can’t be hurt badly, or she wouldn’t be looking to leave. Certainly this could be handled with asking for a name, or asking someone nearby for a name. If you never find her, what’s the harm here?

I don’t know if this is racism, but I don’t think so. Certainly the officers may have acted rougher or been quicker to use pepper spray than if the young lady was white, but there’s no way to determine that here.

I’m just appalled a teenaged is treated like this.

A sad day in America for me.
