Two LAPD  white officers arrested a Black Man for simply taking out his trash can in his own house. This is in addition to many videos that reveal the humiliation and aggression at the hands of the police that many African American families are subjected to on daily basis.

A federal judge ordered the release of an officer body camera video that shows LAPD officers arresting a Black music producer who was picking up trash cans outside his home. At the time, officers were responding to a call for a restraining order violation where the perpetrator was white man and allegedly the ex-boyfriend of the Black man’s neighbor.

“The police drove to the location and literally arrested the first black male they found and to me that’s racial profiling. That is the textbook definition of racial profiling,” Faisal Gill, who is representing Austin and his girlfriend Michelle Michlewicz in the lawsuit, tells PEOPLE.

According to the lawsuit, the neighbor who allegedly called the police came outside and allegedly told the police that Austin was not the suspect.

“Despite knowing that he was not the suspect to which they were looking for, they continued to place Mr. Austin in handcuffs and place him in the back of a police vehicle,” the lawsuit states.

“During the incident on May 24, 2019, at around 3:00pm, LAPD officers continuously assaulted and placed Mr. Austin in severe apprehension of fear of bodily harm to himself and his girlfriend and assaulted Ms. Michlewicz and placed her in severe apprehension for her safety and that of her boyfriend, while subjecting Ms. Michlewicz to severe emotional distress by assaulting her loved one and disrobing her, leaving her naked in public in broad daylight,” the lawsuit alleges.
