William Cunningham was not illegally parked outside of his cousins home yet a Maryland officer approached him and accused him of being parked illegally.
When Cunningham tried to go inside the officer pointed a gun at his head.
The officer has been charged with first degree assault and faces 45 years in prison.
It must be noted the officer is Latino, I don’t know if this is playing into the sentencing but I would guess (please let me know if these statistics are wrong) that he was always more likely to charged and spend time behind bars than a white colleague.
Watch the attack and learn more in the video below:
