WATCH: Chick Accuses Cop of Racism, Then the Body Camera Footage is Released

Dawn Hilton-Williams was pulled over by a Virginia cop for a speeding violation, little did the cop know that doing his job was racism… at least that is what Hilton-Williams accused him of during a Facebook Live video on April 27.

The video went viral and her tearful rant went on to call the interaction a “lynching,” and Hilton-Williams mentions the name of Sandra Bland, a woman of color who committed suicide in jail after a traffic stop.

“I was just bullied by a racist cop,” claims Hilton-Williams. “This is where we got lynched. This is where we got lynched, even in today’s day.”

Upon viewing the video, many people called the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office demanding answers to the accusations made. So, the sheriff’s office responded by releasing the full body camera and it is a very different interaction than what Hilton-Williams describes.

“I started getting calls from citizens asking what is going on,” explained Sheriff Brian Roberts. “They had seen a posting and were concerned about how I would allow it to happen.”

Here is what actually happened. You tell us if this is racist or not.
