Social media users reacted angrily with varying levels of horror and disgust to a video posted online of Virginia police officers escalating a traffic stop of Lt. Caron Nazario, a Black Army officer who is currently suing the cops involved.

As you will witness in the video below, Windsor cops approached Lt. Nazario with “guns drawn,” shouting at him to get out of the car. If you listen to the military officer, he tells them that he is afraid to move as anyone would be if they had guns pointing at them, and with one wrong move, life could be ended.

Lt. Nazario was reluctant to reach down and unbuckle his seat belt with the guns pointed in his direction, which resulted in an overabundance of pepper spray in his location.

Whether you want to believe it or are sensitive to this fact, many Black Americans and probably some White Americans look for lighted areas if they are pulled over by law enforcement during night hours. They feel it is safer. Hell, some moms tell their children to drive slowly if they are required to pull over until they reach a lighted area. I can see why this Lt ended up at this gas station which was an additional two-minute drive after the initial request to pull over.

One more thing before I let you read some of the comments. A regular police officer would have turned on the lights and followed the individual, and then asked questions at the window. The was no reason to draw or have a group draw weapons.

According to the report, Lt. Nazario is suing the cops for the December stop. The police bodycam footage circulates on Twitter to considerable outrage from political and media figures, activists, journalists, and other verified users.
