Over the weekend, another video surfaced of police abusing their power and also mistreating a Black man for no reason. This time, it involved, Caron Nazario, who serves as a Lieutenant in the United States. He made it known to the officers that he was pulled over for no reason and had a right to not exit his car. These police soon opened his car door and forced him on his knees. Prior to this, they pepper sprayed Nazario in the face.
Many artists are now speaking out about this horrible incident and one of them is Jeezy. He took to his Instagram feed to voice his displeasure at how these cops handled this situation with Nazario. The hip-hop legend believed that these officers tried to take away Nazario’s masculinity and these type of incidents only happen in America.
“What part of this is protecting and serving?” asked Jeezy. “After you went and fought for the country. It’s like they wanted to take his masculinity to feed egos!! Let’s see what the government do about this. I see no threat, only a man that was confused and understood protocol. He asked the right questions. They didn’t have any answers. Shits break my heart to see a grown man handled like animal. Only in America.”
Jeezy made valid points here. Even if Black Americans serve this country, they unfortunately don’t get treated with full respect by law enforcement and others. These officers definitely wanted to inflict fear on Lieutenant Nazario. Hopefully, there will be consequences for how they acted.
