This happened in 2019, but honestly, it has been happening for hundreds of years.
Derrick Thompson was pulled over on his way to work for a minor violation that should have ended with ticket at best. The cop says she believes that Thompson has drugs in the car and tries to do an illegal search.
Thompson knows his rights so when the other cops showed up he starts recording and lets them know what they are doing is illegal.
Hewitt then shows up and escalates the situation. He readily admits he plans to beat Thompson’s ass while saying he is a specimen.
Then in a very disturbing visual, he winks at the camera and says “watch the show” before trying to choke out Thompson and beating him.
This is SICK.
He needs to be fired and arrested. Neither has happened.
After initially covering it up, they are now investigating.
A Virginia State Trooper has been placed on administrative leave while the department investigates a 2019 traffic stop in Fairfax County involving a Black driver.
“The conduct displayed by Trooper (Charles) Hewitt during the course of the traffic stop is not in agreement with the established standards of conduct required of a Virginia trooper. Nor is it characteristic of the service provided daily across the Commonwealth of Virginia by Virginia State Police personnel,” Superintendent Col. Gary T. Settle said in a statement.
