Cops Interrogate Black Man For Having ‘Too Many’ Credit Cards at ATM
All it took was withdrawing money from an ATM in a Texas suburb and this black man was cornered and questioned by white cops, who thought he had too many credit cards.
The incident happened recently at a gas station in Burleson, a suburb of Fort Worth, and a video shows one of the officers asking the man to prove that the many cards in his wallet are his.
The guy explains that he is in a hurry to help his wife, whose car he says broke down, but the police slowly make him go through all the credit cards in his wallet so they can match the names on cards to his identity document.
The man wonders why the cops are making a big deal, and an officer tells him that someone in the store thought he was acting suspiciously.
At one point the officer outrageously asks the man how he ended up in the suburbs and it all checks out at the end … but now the guy says the whole interaction was racist.
We have contacted the Burleson Police Department … so far no word in return.
Our sincere thanks to
