Black Man SCOLDS Black Lives Matter After Police Confront Him At Gunpoint

This happened last week.

“From the police officers point of view, all they knew was that a bank had just been robbed less than ten minutes ago. The suspect was a large black male, wearing all black, with something on top of his head and the suspect is armed. As they drive past an Iowa City park that was less than 3 minutes away from the bank that was just robbed, they notice a large black man, dressed in all black, with black goggles on his head. They quickly move to action and identify themselves as the Iowa City police and ask me to turn around and place my hands up. I do not comply, they ask again, and again no response from me. So they all draw their guns and begin to slowly approach the suspect.”

This dramatic retelling is from a Facebook note written by University of Iowa defensive end Faith Ekakitie about an incident that happened to him while he was in a park playing Pokémon GO. He closely matched the description of the bank robbery suspect and didn't hear the police calling out to him because he had music blaring through his earbuds.

"In this situation, what the media would fail to let people know is that the suspect had his headphones in the entire time the Police Officers approached him initially," Faith wrote. "The suspect had reached into his pockets, for something which was his phone, but for all the cops could have known, he was reaching for a gun. The suspect could very well become another statistic on this day."

Faith added, "Misunderstandings happen all the time and just like that things can go south very quickly. It is extremely sad that our society has brainwashed us all to the point where we can’t feel safe being approached by the police officers in our respective communities."

The student then thanked the Iowa City Police Department for "handling a sensitive situation very professionally," warned other Pokémon GO players to be more away of their surroundings, and urged society to unlearn some of the prejudices that have been hammered into their heads recently.
