WATCH: Virginia Cops Handcuff Innocent Man Eating with Family in Shopping Mall

A Black man with dreadlocks man was sharing a meal with his family in a shopping mall Saturday when Virginia Beach police walked up to him and handcuffed him without telling him why.

The cops led him outside to a parking lot of the Lynnhaven Mall, detaining him for several minutes, still refusing to tell him why they had handcuffed him.

It was only after the same cops arrested another Black man with dreadlocks that they removed the handcuffs, allowing him to be on his way with a weak apology.

“We got a description somebody was using stolen credit cards,” a cop told the man’s wife who posted the video to her Facebook page where she goes by Kiara Love.

“That person is a Black man with dreads and was wearing all black and was with a boy that was wearing red,” the cop explained. “I completely apologize. It was a complete misunderstanding.”

But for Black Americans, it was just another case of racial profiling which could have easily led to another innocent Black man shot and killed by police.

“That’s why we say, ‘Black Lives Matter,'” said the man who has only been identified as “Jehmel” at this time. “Look how you treat us in front of people. Black Lives Matter. That’s why we fight.”

The cops in the video were not wearing facial masks when they first handcuffed Jehmel even though last month Governor Ralph Northam issued an order that everybody over the age of five must wear a mask while inside public places of business.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
