Dad Wants Cop Fired For Pointing Gun at His Toddler Son

A California father wants the police officer who aimed his weapon toward him and his 2-year-old son fired.

The encounter happened in Long Beach at a protest over the killing of George Floyd. Dontae Parks, 29, told the Sun that the unnamed officer aimed the weapon just feet from where he was holding his son on his shoulders.

“The officer in the photo — he should not be a cop at all,” Dontae Parks, 29, told the Sun.

“I could tell just by looking at him he’s ready to shoot at any time,” he claimed.

Parks said he only felt safe taking his son to the event on Sunday because it was billed as a peaceful protest.

He says the officers did not seem to care that he was holding a small child when they started firing rubber bullets at the crowd.

“One cop threatened to spray my son with tear gas,” he said, stressing it was not the same one with the weapon in the now-viral photo. “I was shocked,” he said.

Video from the protests seem to back up his claim, with one woman heard wailing at cops, “What’s the matter with you? You are a monster! You are really going to gas this child?”

The video also shows at least one officer repeatedly suggesting Parks move away — with him clearly staying put as they fired on the crowd.

“A lot of people might think I put my son in danger by being there, but I know I wouldn’t let anything happen to him, and when it started to get really dangerous, we went home,” Parks told the paper.

“I’m a great father and I take care of my son and I’m raising him to be great,” he insisted.

He also believes that “if me and my son were white, I don’t think that cop would have threatened to spray the gas.”

“It would have been a whole different scenario and that’s another reason I was there,” he said.

When sworn police break the law, and then lie about it. And then ,get away with their feloneous crimes Against Black citizens. Then their is no law!! Whites have no laws, that Black Folks are bound to respect.
