A viral video showing a Walmart customer being arrested for shopping has been released, sparking cries of racism. The man, along with several companions, were asked to leave the retail store multiple times by a police officer before one of them was taken into custody. “I’m asking you to get your a** up off that cart and get out of the store,” the law enforcer warns.
No word on why the men were being told to leave, but the arresting officer was White and the shoppers Black, leading some to speculate the arrest was race-related. Still, the men appear to be antagonizing the officer in the clip in the minutes leading up to her pulling out her handcuffs.
You can watch the video below of the incident, and let us know in the comments below if you think the officer’s actions were justified.
