CLEVELAND, Ohio (WTXF/STORYFUL) - A black female police officer in Cleveland posted a Facebook Live video after Tuesday’s deadly shooting in Baton Rouge and it’s spreading rapidly on social media after Wednesday’s deadly incident in Minnesota.
In the video, before the Minnesota news broke, Nakia Jones referred to Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge and about her experiences as an African-American police officer working in an African-American community.
She addressed any police officers who are racist by saying, “If you are white and you work in the black community and you are racist, you need to be ashamed of yourself. You stood up there and took an oath… I decided to work in an African-American community because I’m African-American and I want to make a difference… How dare you stand next to me in the same uniform and murder somebody? How dare you?”
Then, she said any prejudiced police officers should “take the uniform off and put the KKK hoodie on.”
The seven-minute video reached more than one million views in 11 hours.
