Des Moines Cop accused of racial profiling after traffic stop - WATCH


Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement is accusing a Des Moines Police Officer of racial profiling after it obtained dash cam and body cam video of a traffic stop in July.

According to our News Partner, WHO-TV "Montray Little was pulled over by officers Kyle Thies and Natalie Heinemann despite video showing no obvious traffic violations.  Little and his passenger, Jared Clinton, are accused of having drugs in the car and acting like they have a weapon as well.  Little is handcuffed and Clinton is taken out of the car while they and the vehicle are searched.  No drugs or weapons were found.  Police did find an open bottle of alcohol which they had the men dump out."

Iowa CCI says all the people that Officer Thies booked into Polk County Jail last year were black. Des Moines Police say that is not true.

So watch the video and then decide for yourself. Was this racial profiling?
