A Houston police officer was filmed warning a black woman during a traffic stop on May 19:
Hands up! Put your hands up. Over your head! Pretend like we’re going to shoot you.
A witness, Denee Harris, who filmed the incident is heard saying: “Why would he say that?”
KTRK reports that four people were told to leave the vehicle; a cop confiscated one of the passenger’s crutches, and threw it on the ground.
Harris later told Storyful News, “I was so scared. I didn’t know how it was going to end.”
It’s not clear why the car was pulled over the four people were detained.
The Houston Police Department told KTRK that they are aware of the video and are investigating.
