This is what happens when all officers hear is “black” in a suspect description…They pull over a car full of kids and their mom whose car doesn’t even match the description — then hold them at gun point.
A story out of ABC News 30:
Earlier this month, police in Foney, TX pulled over a car filled with a mother and her four children by “mistake” while searching for a group of four adult, male suspects waving a gun on the highway.
Kametra Barbour was driving with her four children under the age of 10 home when she was suddenly stopped and surrounded by police. She was pulled over as the police held a gun at her. The car is not the same make, model or color as the suspects’ car. But she did have a vehicle full of black people.
It’s pretty eerie to hear the officers actually ask each other, “Do they look young to you?” when Barbour’s 6-year-old son, Ryan, inches his way out of the car when his hands up. It’s increasingly flinch-worthy as the officer yells to his partner, “Gun down! Gun down!” and the terrified boy starts wailing.
Police admit they made a mistake but are refusing to apologize.
