Cops Draw Guns On Black Man Picking Up Trash On His Own Property

Police in Boulder, Colorado, launched an internal affairs investigation after video surfaced of several officers confronting a black man who was picking up trash outside his home last week.

The Boulder Police Department said in a statement Monday that one of its officers observed a man sitting in a partially enclosed patio area behind a “private property” sign at 8:30 a.m. Friday and asked if he was allowed to be there.

The man, whose identity has not been released, told the officer he lived and worked in the building, and presented his school identification card, but the officer detained him to investigate further.

As is usual we in the UK see excessive force used on a black man by a white cop. In the UK we don’t have the same problem because we don’t have guns or the fear of guns. Nor do we have racist policemen. By the way I’m not black.
