With all the brutality inflicted by white police officers on black men and women in the United States of America over the past couple of years, it’s pretty justified that 25 year-old John Felton recorded his conversation with the unnamed police officer who pulled him over one evening last month; he was fearing for his life.

After Felton repeatedly asked the officer why he’d pulled him over, he was told it was for failing to signal before a turn. Felton denied this and asked why the officer then trailed him “for two miles” if that were the case. The officer then changed his reason to something completely bizarre yet somehow unsurprising.

“You made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you,” the officer said.

We are just glad that Mr Felton made it out of this frightening situation alive. Check out the video clip below:
