The news is out: [A 71-year-old Black man has sued a South Carolina city after he says he feared for his life in a 2019 incident in which a police officer allegedly held the man outside naked and at gunpoint while other officers searched through his home without a warrant.
According to ABC News, Jethro DeVane says he was asleep at home in the city of Rock Hill, S.C., on the evening of Jun. 3, 2019, when he woke up to police shining lights inside his window.
When DeVane looked out his front door to see what was going on, he said officers then pointed a gun at him and forced him outside.
The Associated Press reported that body camera footage from the incident shows officer Vincent Mentesana cursing at DeVane and telling him not to close the door.
Mentesana then orders DeVane to stand outside his home naked at 4 a.m., facing the wall, according to the footage released Tuesday.
After DeVane asks the officer what was going on, Mentesana can be heard saying, “I don’t want to talk to you.”]
Jethro DeVane is about to join the millionaire club, courtesy of stupid cops.
