Black Man Stands Up to Police and Lives Through It [Video]

YouTube is full of videos where young white men, often times armed, stand up to police and shuts down policeforce the officers to back down. With African-Americans, however, the rules are often different and knowing your rights will get you Tasered or worse. One African-American man recorded an encounter with police where he avoided getting arrested or shοt while preserving his rights.

When cops knocked on his door looking for a fugitive, Avel Amarel was determined to record the incident and not allow officers to illegally enter his home, according to a video posted on TheFreeThoughtProject.com.

Police told Amarel that they wanted to search his home because of an incident that occurred in the parking lot, but Amarel told the officers that the person they were looking for was not inside his home and he wasn’t allowing police to enter without a warrant.

“Officer, I can’t let you inside without a search warrant,” he says.

Early in the encounter, an officer attempts to get Amarel to stop recording cell phone video, using the excuse that he didn’t know what the object was. Amarel informed the officer that the object in question was a cell phone and continued recording.

Throughout the video, Amarel refuses to let up, asking officers for three forms of identification. The officers never present any ID, but ask Amarel for ID, but he refuses. Amarel asks the officers whether he’s suspected of a crime and when the officers explain again about the fugitive, Amarel tells them that only he and his family are at the home.

When one officer asks for permission to search the home, Amarel tells him to come back with a warrant. Eventually the officers leave in frustration.

  1. Very intelligent brother. And those stupid police really thought they were going to intimidate him. Do your freaking job and look for the suspect and stop trying to take the easy road, by knocking on people's doors looking for criminals. JERKS. Lazy coward azz cops.

  2. Police really think we r all sum illiterate individuals , I respek the blk man sterness n not letting them pigs enter.. Blk folk dnt give up ur civil liberties 2 feel safe wen the true enemy is the judicial system.. & the so calld law makers…

  3. This is a perfect example of why blacks should know their rights. I was scared for this brother the entire time because just because you know your rights does not mean you are going to get to keep your life.

  4. Love it… Know your right people.

  5. You go boy! Now that was a very intelligent way to handle those a***ssholes. Make them identify themselves and get a f’ing warrant.

  6. Rouge Cop’s there’s a new Sheriff in town, and it’s a Camera Phone.

  7. Awesome. That Brothers reaction comes from living a life that does not require having to "look over your shoulder" in fear of what "you may have done previously" and gotten away with. I remember walking down the street one day and the Brother walking in front of me, almost took off running, when he seen a cops car slow down. We must get it together and keep it together. Learn some basic rights, like warrants and ID's.
