The innocent father goes to the police after kidnapping him while he is eating with the family


 An investigation is underway after a viral video captured metropolis cops mistaking an innocent dad for a criminal and kidnapping him before his family. The unnamed man was humiliated ahead of countless other mall patrons as he was dragged through the food court in handcuffs and out the front doors.


“If you don’t want to urge arrested or beaten by cops, don’t do anything wrong,” is one in every of the foremost oft-repeated phrases by those that constantly apologize for the despotismit's also constantly proven wrong. the subsequent case is one in all many samples of this phrase being proven wrong.

In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday, an innocent Negro is seen getting placed in handcuffs and temporarily kidnapped by police as he ate lunch together with his family.

According to police, they were trying to find a man who drove a black truck and once they spotted this dad eating together with his family, they claim he fit the outline.

As the video shows, the officer moves immediately in to start arresting the person despite he and his wife telling them that they are doing not own a black truck. The officer doesn't appear to question the person and instead moves to instantly place him in cuffs.

The entire time, his wife is telling the officer that they are doing not have a black truck and asks why her husband is being kidnapped.

Naturally, the dad was upset that he was being humiliated ahead of everyone within the mall, so he expressed his anger with the officer.

“Why are you arresting me man?” the dad screams.

“Are you serious right now?” the handcuffed man asked within the video. He said this sort of treatment is why people are marching and why people say “Black Lives Matter.”

Eventually, the dad is released and also the officer apologizes because it appeared the particular person they were searching for was already in custody. Nevertheless, this dad had his rights violated and were kidnapped and presumed guilty by this cop because he had on a black jacket.

After the video went viral on Sunday, city captain Paul Newdigate was forced to reply and said his department has launched an investigation.

“Certainly, anyone would be upset about being detained for something they didn’t do,” said Chief Neudigate. “While the video shows the officer stayed calm and respectful throughout the brief encounter, we must make sure the situation merits the response. We are gathering all the facts to gauge the incident so we will address the concerns people have raised.”

The Virginia Beach NAACP said they need been ignored by the department and are demanding answers:

The metropolis NAACP strongly condemns the apparent racial bias on display within the video clip that has widely circulated on social media today. within the midst of a worldwide pandemic, metropolis law enforcement officials – without masks or personal protective equipment – mistakenly detained a Negro who was spending quality time together with his family. As an urban center officer stated “you have the correct to be upset,” and indeed we are just that: quite upset.

Even more alarming, calls from the urban center NAACP to the urban center captain remain unanswered as of Sunday evening. We are demanding a gathering with the metropolis police officer within 48 hours. because the local department has not more established our inquiries, the city NAACP has launched its own investigation into the incident.

The NAACP won't rest until every melanin citizen in the city can shop, dine, and travel without being racially profiled by our city’s law enforcement officials.
