Earlier this week a video began circulating on Facebook that showed a couple of Wilmington Delaware cops questioning 3 kids on their bikes, who are around the age of 9. While the officers were asking for the names and ages, Damieon Flowers is curious to know why they are being stopped and harassed by the officers.
After the confrontation, one of the officers stated that there were serious problems reported in the area involving juveniles, and because the kids were “juveniles”, this warranted the questioning. Flowers, highly agitated with what was going on, told the cops to leave the kids alone and to go catch the perpetrators.
After the ordeal was over and still upset, Flowers spoke into the camera, “I was about to hit him, got so much shit inside of me man, leave them kids alone mother fucker, fuck with me.”
Earlier today, Damieon Flowers again, took to his Facebook to let everyone know that the Wilmington Police department has pressed felony charges against him for his video; he didn’t specify the exact charges. Flowers also says that the police department sent a SWAT team to his house to apprehend him.
This entire police state seems excessive. But what do I know, I’m just a black man in America.
UPDATE: Charges against Damieon Flowers were dropped
