  1. Driving while Black is now a crime.

  2. This past month a Black man totoally complied with police and was shot. Don't forget a Black man, Armadou Diallo, was getting his wallet as ordered by the police and was shot 41 times,

  4. This is never gping to end we need to start looking for other options outside of UDA

  5. Farntella Graham says:

    don't forget about what is happening in west africa. it is all RELATED. What is the AU and the Black american leadership going to do about it? this is messed up. we need to pull our heads out of the sand and organize.

  6. Don Elliott says:

    But we got a black president though. Oh, never mind. He's Amerikkka's president.

  7. Breathing and living while black is a crime.

  8. Randy Watson says:

    Way to go Sunny. I am very proud of your speaking up. This absurdity happens daily in the Black community. Those who say it doesn't are both blind and incredibly ignorant. I'm thankful the man didn't end up dead as so many Black have before.

  9. Paul Charney says:

    Where was the black man totally compliant at, what city?

  10. Paul Charney says:

    not listening to the request of police, too many times the officers are shot while doing simple traffic stop!

  11. Travis Six says:

    Please yall let's unite and organize. We are the most disrespected people on the planet!!!! And this shit must STOP!!!!!

  12. Tawana Cook says:

    This would never happen to a white family. Whenever there is a black person (especially a black man) involved the white cops always claim there could have been a weapon. For many white Americans that is all they need to hear. It seems that every black man is responsible for every thing one black man has done. This is racism. Keep defending this injustice and eventually it will become the standard for all people.

    ”Cops get killed every day, about 50 a year…”
    Hmmmm…And I'm supposed to listen to the opinion of someone who can't do basic grade school math?

  14. Foe DaGreat says:

    That comes with the job they picked. They are supposed to exercise restraint over their fear and only react in an aggressive manner AFTER a confirmed threat, not at the possibility of a threat.

  15. Everything is about race in a american society. The foundation of America is built on race. So I am not sure what the white lawyer is talking about. And those cops respond base on social contructed white priviledge. They don't have any respect for the black persons.

  16. Jerry Knox says:

    it is not a requirement to carry id unless you live in a communist country.

  17. Eri Ka says:

    She is right!

  18. Nica Vinson says:

    50 a year equates to everyday now? I guess I need to go back to grade school because I was taught that a year has 365 days and 366 days every 4 years. HMM

    Paul Charney, look up the story of Marcus Jeter http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/police-dash-cam-video-exonerates-nj-man-implicates-cops-article-1.1701763 … then tell us how complying with police keeps us safe.

    Paul Charney, research the story of Marcus Jeter http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crime/police-dash-cam-video-exonerates-nj-man-implicates-cops-article-1.1701763 … and then come back and tell us how complying with police always keeps us safe.

  21. Paul Charney do not forget the man in SC that was shot while trying to provide the officer with ID.

  22. Bongo Logic says:

    We need to do something and real fast because I'm really tired of this same old shit over and over.

  23. Nice reporting Sonny. Very balanced and fair. I mean the next time a cop asks me repeatly for ID I will tell them hold on while I call 911!

  24. Josef Longo says:

    No, breaking the law is a crime (no matter what color you are)

  25. I call it TUNNEL VISION THINKING. I am a truck driver. The majority of truck drivers I talk to are male over fifty and white. Do you know when they are angry at THE PRESIDENT they look at me and call him "YOUR president". I believe that is why there is so much violence against BLACKS because OUR PRESIDENT IS BLACK. Women brace yourselves if a woman becomes president!

  27. And to think the guy who said "it's not about race." Is a legal analyst. He's ignorant as hell for thinking that

  28. Of course he has answers when the black woman speaks. However, he had no response when the white lady says she won't stop or get out till she feels safe.

    Not to mention the police were given his information as a passenger. At no point in the video do you see the man gesturing for anything. Lastly, no man black, white, hispanic, asian, or Jewish would put his family in danger by gesturing for something the victims never have. Same old bullshit…. "It look like he had something." The only aggressors in this video are the white cops, as usual. The truth is becoming apparent more and more. We all are being to see who the real CRIMINALS are. The perpetrators call themselves cops. Not all, just the idiots like these here.

  29. Hard to understand racism Paul, when you don't have to worry about it. Paul has no clue what it feels like for a black man to wear a Black coat in america (lower case "A").

    Here's a clue: when we wear a black coat we have to negotiate ," does this coat look too urban or too black?" We know in america your guilty for being black. You "look" like a criminal if you wear a black coat. Thanks racially impartial media. You've been driving the message that anything black is bad even before you colonized (stole) the United States and Africa from the indigenous people. If anyone KNOWS a criminal it definitely not you "Paul". No way "Paul" can see racism in this picture.

  30. Paul- "Racism! Racism! That's absurd! This lady doesn't know what she's talking about."

    Too damn pitiful. SMH

  31. Paul Charney "too many cops shot at traffic stops" you moronic puss, not by Blacks and you know it.
