The group of black children playing outside a Bennettsville, South Carolina, Housing Authority development had done nothing wrong. But that didn’t stop officer C.J. Mullinax from pulling over his squad car and chasing them down.
Luckily, Bennettsville resident Lorenzo Adams was there with his camera phone, and video of the shocking incident has now gone viral. Watch for yourself.
Well, that wasn’t so bad. But if the cop in question wasn’t doing anything wrong, why did Adams take the video in the first place?
“These days, there’s so much negativity out there, and I just wanted to record it so Bennettsville could see we have good police officers here no matter what might be happening elsewhere,” Adams told ABC news.
It’s kind of sad (not to mention completely unfair to most police officers) that video of a cop acting like a decent human being is so shocking that it goes viral. But at this point, I guess I’ll take it. And as long as we’re on the subject, let’s end with another heartwarming cop video.
See, most cops are awesome.
