Yvette Carnell and Dr. Boyce Watkins Wonder Why This Black Woman Is Defending an Out of Control Cop?Click to tweet
“You should teach your children that when the police arrive to the scene, you stand there and you wait for instructions,” she explains. “You don’t know what’s going on. The police officer does not know what’s going on.”
The woman says Casebolt was right to target black kids because they were running.
“Everyone is in an uproar they [restrained] the black kids and not the white kids. The white kids weren’t running. The black kids were,” she said. “And I’m black by the way.”
“You cannot pull away from an officer. At that point, that’s a threat,” she continued. “So, he had every right to detain her, from ‘any means necessary’ from Malcolm X.”
In the following video, BreakingBrown Founder Yvette Carnell and Dr. Boyce Watkins deconstruct the woman’s argument.
