A Virginia police officer has been fired after he pepper sprayed and held at gunpoint a Black Army Lieutenant during a traffic stop in December for a license plate issue similar to the stop that ended in the death of Daunte Wright. Jonathan Capehart tells Lawrence O’Donnell that watching video of the incident is “enraging” and “frightening” and it’s “why a traffic stop is never routine when you’re a Black male in America.” Aired on 04/12/2021.
