'Walking While Black?': Shocking Video Has Police Under Fire For killing Unarmed Black Man


  1. I am white. Can’t tell you how many times I have jaywalked. I was never stopped. This is insane!! This needs to end!!

    1. @Brian Jones The cops weren’t bothered about him on the road, They just wanted to identify him. Did you not hear the cops talking before they drove to him?

    2. @Brian Jones You’re the embarrassment!! People who can watch this sh-t and have no human reaction are not human!! One day you’ll be standing alone!! Hard to believe you can stand at all without a spine!! I know many deplorable s’more human than you, you dope!!

  2. It’s like they were lying in wait for him. Not like, “Oh no, this guy’s jaywalking in a busy intersection, someone could’ve gotten hurt! We need to give him a warning.” The place is deserted and the cops are bored.

    1. @Brian Jones so then what? He was attacked of his own volition? He purposely shot himself with the officers gun for kicks?

    2. @Brian Jones …. you either have not watched enough footage of these ‘ murders’ OR you are TROLLING !!!

      Time for some research …

    1. @Daniel Hawthorn Serious question. It’s not clear to me from the video who initiated the struggle but if he had just answered the cops questions and not tried to resist would he be home right now?

  3. He stood up for himself. That was his only ‘crime’–the cops came out of nowhere and got up in his face and Reinhold was indignant. He was angry and had every right to be and if he were white he’d probably be Zooming with his lawyer right now about filing a complaint.

  4. I’m sorry, but this is not the law, this is murder. These officers had no right to even interact with this man, they killed him

  5. Why does this happen when the people who stormed the capital went to hotel s , got on planes, when they should have been arrested THAT day. They attempted to over throw the government.. our country… but where let to leave? That’s b.s

    1. @Brian Jones Cops should have opened fire on those traitors. Their actions deserved lethal force not this man for jay walking. Bet your one of those fake a$$ patriots

  6. Cops be saying ” I fear for my life”
    Not realizing the unarmed black man they’re attacking “fear for his life” as well.

  7. totally disturbing and disgusting. I hope the new attorney general will clean up our government offices.
