David Nin’s not-black skin didn’t prevent him from almost being shot to death by an armed government worker.
Nin, 20, had committed no crime. Not even a moving violation. But – according to the AGW – he fit the description of someone who had. The AGW can be seen leveling his pistol at the terrified young man, who pleads with him not to shoot.
Luckily, Nin’s girlfriend was shooting – video – and that appears to be the only thing that spared Nin’s life.
“When I tried to pull over to the side he just came out with his gun, telling me not to move. He told me not to move at all,” Nin said, “I took my hands right out the window I was like, yo chill, don’t shoot.”
When the cop noticed that Nin’s girlfriend was filming, he demanded she stop filming. Knowing that she was about to film a potential murder, she did not stop.
“And he was telling her to put it down so, like, I got scared. I like thought he was going to light off,” Nin said.
When asked to exit the vehicle, he did so and was put into handcuffs without incident. When other officers arrived, who apparently had much cooler heads, the situation was de-escalated and Nin was sent on his way — after being kidnapped, assaulted with a deadly weapon and almost ended by it.
This video shows that we haven’t got a problem with racist AGWs. We have a problem with AGWs.
