Black Firefighter Claims Police Pulled Gun on Two Young Sons Outside Station

An black Oakland firefighter claims that a white police officer pulled a gun on him and his two Keith Jonesyoung sons outside of the fire station where he worked.

Keith Jones says he and his two young sons, ages 9 and 12, were leaving the fire station after a Raiders game when he noticed that one of the garage doors had been left open.

Jones said he was in the process of securing the door when an officer approached and demanded that both he and his sons put their hands in the air.

“Don’t move, put your hands up,” said the officer.

Jones said the officer wasn’t just focused on him, but his young sons as well.

“And his hand is on his gun. He was crouched, he was low, and he was basically in a shοoting stance,” Jones told CBS San Francisco.

Jones said he noticed that one of his sons was crying and asked the officer if the young boys could put their hands down. In response, the officer told them all to keep their hands in the air and not to move.

“I’m pretty much thinking he’s going to pretty much shoοt me,” Jones said.

“I was thinking is he going to shoοt my dad the whole time,” said 12-year-old Keith Jones II.

One of the boys told the station he still has “images in his head” of his dad about to get shοt.

“I was getting ready about to cry. My hands started to get tired, but I kept them up,” said 9-year-old Trevon Jones.

After a few minutes, Jones was allowed to show his firefighter’s ID to the officer, putting an end to the incident. Police say the officer was responding to a potential burglary and acted appropriately. The entire incident was captured on the officer’s body camera.

  1. Another stick up while black again…smh. Good thing it ended well

  2. What burglar takes his children to the crime? When do police officers ask for your ID? After they've shot you?

  3. animals life more important!!

  4. How did it end well. Those kids are traumatized. What do you think only white kids are traumatized. I'd like for you to share how exactly this ended well. It ended without anyone getting shot or killed, but ending well was NOT the resolution. Ask the dad and two children if it ended well.

  5. @Kai Jai Love,sorry for the way I put it bro, what I meant was that I'm happy he nor his son's were shot, knowing how trigger happy they are around black folks, that was my interpretation, for sure they're traumatized, but I'm very glad the trigger didn't go off…

  6. Police absolutely use no judgment and lack total common sense. The recruitment process for officers need changing quick.

  7. when was the last fire station burglary anyway, anywhere, uhh duh

  8. This is awful.

  9. OPD is Full of IT! Yesterday, I witnessed eighteen Officers apprehending one man in Downtown Oakland! Totally ridiculous!

  10. Did he ask for the police report that indicated a burglary call. I bet there wasnt one. After that i wouldve went after the police dept. You have to fight back every time by any means neccessary.

  11. The police released the cam from the cops uniform. The firefighter was completely lying and race baiting. The police officer apologized 3 times. He did everything by the book. We perpetuate racism when we assume fact without research. This is what discredits true racial crimes.

  12. all a big black racist lie and the liar got caught
