Last week, many of us were enraged upon seeing the video of a Black woman being accused of theft and choked by an Asian Beauty Supply Store manager.
The original video can be seen here:
The store has since issued the full video surveillance which shows the woman in question stealing. Watch the video below:
I’ve re-watched this video a few times, and the more I watch it the more I lean towards understanding the store manager’s position. Was he unprofessional? Yes. Did he use excessive force? Yes. However, if I were in a similar situation where I confronted a thief and said thief proceeded to become violently combative I may have lost my cool, too. This is hard because I so want to be on her side, fully, but I can’t ignore her own actions.
What do you think?
