Drinking coffee while black: Ohio cop stops black man strolling down the street –then slams him into wall
Saying, “This is what we have to go through in Cincinnati,” a black man strolling down the street drinking a cop of coffee filmed a police officer stalking him, leading to a confrontation that ended with him handcuffed and face-down on the ground.
In the video uploaded to YouTube, a man identified by The Free Thought Project as 29-year-old Charles Harrell, can be seen on screen with a police officer on a bicycle following closely behind him.
“You can’t be a black man and enjoy your morning, because the police are going to harass you in Cincinnati, Ohio,” Harrell explained. “Walking down the street, the cop just asked me if I have a problem.”
