A passenger at the Minneapolis airport started harassing those around her, scolding them and calling stupid for wearing masks. She confronted a black couple. Then a cop came over to break it up – by grabbing the Black woman’s arm.
Other passengers had to intervene to get through to the cop and make him “realizes it was actually the white woman who was causing the trouble.” The black woman “who was originally targeted by police believes she was a victim of racial profiling,” ya think?
The airport authority, however, defends the officer,
In the confusion of the moment and based on his understanding of information provided to him by a passenger present, the officer misidentified who had initiated the disturbance and engaged one of the two individuals whom [the woman] had confronted. Bystanders corrected the officer who quickly turned his attention on [the woman].
By the way the white woman was eventually arrested and found carrying drugs.
