Officer quits after confronting black man picking up trash

A white Colorado police officer who pulled out his gun during a confrontation with a black man picking up trash around his dormitory has resigned. Body camera footage released Thursday provided a full video account of the encounter inside a student dormitory at Naropa University. Officials said the investigation could not prove that the officer, John Smyly, acted because of Zayd Atkinson’s race.

I'm on the right wing and I have heard wolf cried many times, I have to say that this looks like an actual case of racial profiling.

This incident was ridiculous. The officer was clearly abusing his authority and an inquiry should be held as wether or not he should be allowed to resign or terminated.

What an asshole! And this guy is going to hold onto his job until February of next year? Ridiculous. Hope no one hires him after that.

When a cop tells you to put your weapon down, drop everything you have in your hands. Seriously, blacks need to learn how to actually deal with police, especially when the police have got it wrong.

There's two sides to this piece of "news". Or maybe there's three. Police officer training. Police department "quotas". The usual suspects.
