It COULD have been racial-but that would take some actual investigating into the person's background and past statements. Which doesn't seem to be likely with an irresponsible media outlet stoking racial divisions. Given the media's history of fabricating and distorting stories to push an agenda and manipulate readers, I'll wait to hear more of the story.
If the story is true? The video is there for all to see.

Law enforcement agent now on medical leave after PTSD and depression diagnoses in wake of traumatic event

Hopefully the officer will remember this if he ever pulls his gun on someone else.

We shouldn't be farming out security in places like an IRS office.

I want video.

Someone needs to be fired. Let the video decide.
Here it is.

The officer didnít pull his gun, the security guard did. Did you read the article?

Here is the video...

The video does change things-I thought it was just an interview until watching it. It doesn't show the relevant aspects of what lead up to the point of escalating the cop out at gun-point, but I tend to believe the LEO after seeing it. The question remains-was it racially motivated? Or just one more ignorant fool that hates cops regardless of race?

Was he poorly trained? Was he told that no one, absolutely no one can enter the IRS building with a gun? I'm assuming a police officer can but I don't even know that for certain.

Like I said, you don't farm out security for something like an IRS office. I'm not even a fan of allowing rent a cops to have a gun in a situation like this.

Why bring race into this?

Thats just bigoted and stupid. And of course, plays right into the hands of the right wing.
