A disturbing video has recently emerged that shows a New Orleans police officer forcing his way into the home of a black man – without a warrant – and placing him under arrest.
While the event unfolded, the man can be heard saying “You’re scaring me” and “Why are you doing this?”
The officer then orders the bystander recording the interaction to “get out of here,” to which the bystander replies, “But this is my house!” Soon after, the man being arrested begins to panic, pleading with the officer, “Please don’t shoot me!”
The man was identified by the Times-Picayune as Donrell Breaux. The report says that he was charged with “battery of a police officer, resisting arrest with violence, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace.” According to Breaux, he had an argument with a neighbor, and the officer who arrested him is the neighbor’s friend.
