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.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
