Black Man Stopped By Police For ‘Looking Suspiciously’ At White Woman
A 20-year-old black man on his way to dinner in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan, was stopped by police for “looking suspiciously” at a white woman on Tuesday.
The Detroit Metro Times reported that Devin Myers was approached by Royal Oaks police as he walked to Inn Season Cafe.
In a video posted to Facebook by Kimiko Adolph, Myers is seen interacting calmly with the police officers and even apologizing “for wasting your guys’ time.”
The young black man insisted he had done nothing wrong.
Seemingly annoyed that witnesses to the stop were complaining, one officer said, “It’s not that big of a deal.”
Adolph replied, “It’s a big deal when this happens consistently.”
Police eventually let Myers go, and the Inn Season Cafe paid for his evening meal.
