Fort Lauderdale, FL — An infuriating video has surfaced this week showing a police officer harassing an innocent motorist over the darkness of his window tint—and likely his skin color too. The detainment and extortion of innocent motorists for dark windows is a terrible injustice, as TFTP has consistently reported, which makes this video twice as infuriating. During the stop, the man filming the interaction caught the cop on camera violating his rights while abusing his own K9 partner too.
According the person who posted the video, who goes by the name DePastor Yoo, on Facebook, he was driving home Saturday night when he was targeted by an officer with the Wilton Manors Police Department because his tint was suspected of being too dark.
Our attempts to reach DePastor have been unsuccessful, however, the video is self explanatory.
In the land of the free, if police feel that your window tint is too dark, they will claim the right to extort money from you. If you resist this extortion, police will claim the right to kidnap or kill you. Unfortunately, in the land of the free, these instances happen so frequently that they are often caught on video too.
