A Black student in Washington, DC was “assaulted” by two White police officers for being in the proximity of a bank where he had an account. The young man’s name is Jason Goolsby, and video taken of the incident has led to outrage in the nation’s capital.

Jason’s friend, @DaRealBigHomiee, says that they were approached by officers because “a white couple felt uncomfortable around me and my friend in the bank.”
In the shocking video, you can see an extremely aggressive officer bending the arm of the student while he tries to handcuff him. Jason can be heard repeatedly screaming, “I’m not resisting,” as another officer drives their knee into his back.
The video ends after another “thug in blue” approaches the man filming, shoves him, and then tells him to put his hands behind his back.
The DC police tweeted they were responding to a call regarding a “robbery fear,” which we guess means someone’s fear of being robbed.
