Hero Prevents Bus Rape And This Is The Thanks He Gets


A MAN
WAS RIDING A BUS WHEN HE WITNESSED A SEXUAL HARASSMENT
OCCUR ON THE BUS. WE HAVE
THE VIDEO, CHECK OUT WHAT HAPPENED.>>THAT IS WHAT WAS CAPTURED ON
VIDEO. BUT HE ACTUALLY WENT ON FACEBOOK AND DETAILED ABOUT WHAT
HAPPENED BEFORE, AND THEN FOLLOWING WHEN HE WAS PLACED IN HANDCUFFS. I WILL READ YOU A
LITTLE BIT OF WHAT HE SAID ON FACEBOOK. EVENTUALLY WHEN POLICE
ARRIVED, A SGT. DID RELEASE HIM AT THE SCENE. HE GOES ON TO SAY THIS. THIS DID END ON A VERY
POSITIVE TAKE. I THINK THIS IS A VERY RESILIENT INDIVIDUAL FOR
THIS TO HAPPEN TO. I WANT TO GET A REACTION FROM BOTH OF YOU. WATCHING THIS VIDEO AGAIN IS REALLY DISHEARTENING TO SEE THE REALIZATION WASH OVER HIS FACE
AS HE IS ñ HE DID EVERYTHING THAT HE SHOULD HAVE, HE ASKED
PEOPLE TO RECORD, HE IS RESTRAINING THIS GUY, AND YET HE
STILL PLACED IN HANDCUFFS. DO YOU THINK THE POLICE ACTED ACCORDINGLY?>>OF COURSE, HE WAS A VIOLENT
ANGRY BLACK MAN. OF COURSE. HE WAS RESISTING ARREST, THE OTHER PERSON. AND HE WAS INEBRIATED,
WAS SCREAMING OBSCENITIES. HE WAS LITERALLY SITTING DOWN ON
THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BUS SAYING HE TRIED TO ATTACK ME. WITH THIS
HAVE HAPPENED IF HE WAS WHITE AND THE OTHER TWO WAS BLACK OR
ANOTHER ETHNICITY? POSSIBLY. I AM NOT GOING TO ROLL THAT OUT. BUT IN THIS INSTANCE DID THEY
ARREST HIM INAPPROPRIATELY? ABSOLUTELY?>>I THINK THAT MOMENT WHERE HE
GOES ñ I THINK ALMOST EVERY AFRICAN-AMERICAN IN THE COUNTRY CAN RELATE TO THAT MOMENT. WHERE
THEY DO SOMETHING GOOD AND NOW THEY ARE GOING TO GO PUT IT ON ME. SO THEY HANDCUFFED HIM
OUTSIDE. IT IS GOOD NEWS AT THE END THAT THEY FINALLY GOT SOME
SENSE IN THEM AND DID NOT BRING HIM DOWN AND ARREST HIM. BUT YOU
DIDN’T HAVE TO PUT HANDCUFFS ON HIM. HE IS NOT GOING ANYWHERE.>>HE WAS NOT A FLIGHT RISK AT
ALL.>>BEFORE YOU GO TO PUT
HANDCUFFS ON ANYONE, WHAT YOU JUST ASK THE GIRL WHO WAS RIGHT
AND WHO IS WRONG? THEN YOU WILL OF COURSE DO MORE
INVESTIGATIONS. BUT THEY WILL TELL YOU WHO WAS RIGHT AND WRONG ENOUGH TO KNOW IF YOU SHOULD
HANDCUFF THIS GUY. THERE IS AN ASSUMPTION BASED ON RACE. THE
ASSUMPTION IS I HAVE TO HANDCUFF THIS GUY, THERE IS A CONFLICT. HANDCUFFED HIM FIRST, ASK QUESTIONS LATER. ANOTHER FACTOR
IS AGE, HOW YOU ARE DRESSED. IF THAT IS A 60-YEAR-OLD WHITE MAN
IN A BUSINESS OUTFIT, THERE IS NO WAY IN THE WORLD THEY
HANDCUFFED HIM. YOU KNOW IT?>>I MENTIONED IT JUST FOR THOSE
IN THE AUDIENCE THAT WOULD BE LIKE NO, THERE IS ONE INSTANCE I
THOUGHT IN THE LOCAL NEWS REPORT. BUT YOU ARE RIGHT. WHAT
IS REALLY INTERESTING, THERE IS A FOLLOW-UP VIDEO THAT WE DIDN’T SHOW HERE WHERE HE IS SAYING I
AM A COLLEGE GRADUATE, I HAVE NO PRIORS, DON’T ARREST ME. IF THEY
DO ARREST HIM AND DETAIN HIM, BOOM, HE IS IN THE SYSTEM. ALL
OF A SUDDEN, FOR NO REASON WHATSOEVER, NOW HE HAS PRIORS. NOW WHEN SOMEONE ARRESTS HIM AGAIN IN THE FUTURE, MAYBE FOR
DOING ANOTHER GREAT THING, MAYBE HE WILL STOP A PERSON SNATCHER,
THEY WILL SAY WAIT A MINUTE, HE HAS BEEN ARRESTED FOR DISORDERLY CONDUCT OR ASSAULT. IT DOESN’T
MATTER IF THAT PERSON WAS SEXUALLY ASSAULTING A MINOR, WE
HAVE TO ARREST YOU, SORRY. YOU ARE A SCARY BLACK GUY. NOW THE NEXT TIME HE GETS
ARRESTED HE IS IN THE SYSTEM.>>HOPEFULLY HE WON’T. I GOT
ARRESTED ONCE, IT WAS A FALSE ARREST, HE GOT EXPUNGED. THE
WHOLE COURT SAID IT SHOULD’VE NEVER HAPPENED, IT IS GONE. THE
NEXT TIME I GET PULLED OVER FOR A SPEEDING VIOLATION, THEY SAY SO I SEE YOU HAVE BEEN ARRESTED. THAT GUY, HE HAS TO EXPLAIN I HAVE BEEN A GOOD SAMARITAN. HE
WAS DOING THE RIGHT THING AND TRYING TO HELP SOMEONE. CAN YOU
NOT SEE THE FRUSTRATION OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS WHEN THEY HAVE
TO GO THROUGH SOMETHING LIKE THAT? I KEEP ASKING PEOPLE TO
EMPATHIZE JUST A LITTLE BIT.>>THAT IS WHY ATLANTA IS REALLY
GOOD AS WELL. IS A GOOD SHOW.>>PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING THAT
THE POLICE WERE JUST RESPONDING TO WHAT THEY SAW AT THE TIME. WE
CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT IT MUST BE LIKE TO BE IN THE SHOES OF THOSE POLICE OFFICERS. I AM JUST
TRYING TO PRESENT WHERE PEOPLE SAY. THEY ARE SAYING THERE IS A
SKY THAT HAS BEEN ASSAULTED, THEN THEY HAVE THIS OTHER GUY WHO WAS YELLING AND VERY CLEARLY
IMPASSIONED ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENED. WHILE I FEEL IT IS
CLEAR THAT IN THE PLACE OF THESE POLICE OFFICERS THE ADRENALINE
IS RUSHING, MAYBE WE WOULD DO THE SAME THING? DO YOU THINK THAT IS A
FAIR ARGUMENT?>>NO.>>I WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER
EXAMPLE. MY FRIENDS WERE INVOLVED IN A FIGHT IN HIGH SCHOOL, WE WERE THE GOOD
STUDENTS, AND THEN THE COPS SHOWED UP. THERE WAS A FIGHT
BACK AND FORTH. THE COPS ASKED AROUND AND FIGURED OUT WHO
STARTED THE FIGHT. ONE SIDE WAS DOING SELF-DEFENSE, AND THE OTHERS STARTED IT. SO NO, THEY
DON’T HAVE TO ARREST EVERYONE. ESPECIALLY IN A SITUATION LIKE
THIS. THE GUY WAS JUST SITTING DOWN. I AM NOT SAYING THE MOMENT
THEY SHOWED UP ñ THEY SEE ONE GUY THAT WAS BLOODIED UP. JUST
TAKE A MINUTE TO ASSESS WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE YOU GO AROUND
HANDCUFFING THE REST OF THE WORLD. IF YOU LIVE IN A NICE SUBURB IT
HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.
