A video of police officers breaking up a fight at a New Jersey mall has sparked anger over accusations and revealed the ongoing racism approach of many police departments across the US.  This video reveals that law enforcement treated the two teenagers involved in the scuffle — one Black and one white — differently.

In a video at the Bridgewater Commons mall in Bridgewater Township, New Jersey, the teens can be seen getting into a verbal argument.

“Get your hand out of my face,” the Black teen said.

They then begin shoving each other, and a physical fight breaks out. The Black teen is thrown on the floor by the white teen during the fight. Two police officers — one male and one female — arrived and immediately jumped on the Black kid, pinning him to the floor, while another female officer was consoling the white kid, and settle him on a nearby sofa. In fact, if they had ice cream, they would have offered the aggressor a “white” one.

The female officer pushes the white teen onto a nearby couch and motions for him to stay there. At the same time, the male officer tackles the Black teen to the floor, sitting on him and handcuffing him, while the female officer quickly kneels on his back to keep him down on the ground.

“It’s cause he’s Black. Racially motivated,” someone can be heard saying in the video’s background.

These type of racist behaviors is not new and common amongst police departments across the US..
