As reported by WISTV, a NBC affiliate in Lexington, SC. Will Stack, a 22-year-old black service member with the Army National Guard, says in the video he was pulled over by a white Lexington police officer for “improper use of the median.”
According to Stack, he was pulling out of the Lexington County Courthouse in an attempt to make a left turn. Stack said he noticed the lane in front of him was full and the median was not, so he drove the car through the median to get to the left turn lane.
Seconds later, Stack says he was pulled over by a police officer, who immediately asked to see his license, registration, and proof of insurance.
“Now, I will say that why he was here with me, I made sure my hands were on the steering wheel, I made sure to speak very politely as I always do. I did what he told me to do. I handed him the information and I sat here and waited and turned my music down,” Stack said in the video.
Stack says the officer returns a short time later and explains the proper use of a median. Stack admits he made a poor choice.
“I was in the wrong, I didn’t realize it,” Stack said. “I just did it out of habit.”
Stack received a warning from the officer and both went on their respective ways.
Race-baiters would use such incidents to create hatred of police, which sends exactly the wrong message to Black youths. A much better message was posted by Stack on YouTube.
