Video raises questions of excessive police force in Detroit when 2 brothers are assaulted [VIDEO]

WCHB-AM: NewsTalk 1200

23284012_BG1It all started when Tywonn Mitchell, 20, and Naybon Moore, 26, were driving to Grandy’s Coney Island back in May. They say that’s when Detroit police officers began profiling them, tailing their car.

The brothers pulled into the restaurant and the police car backed away, so they thought everything was fine.

But then the officers followed them into the Coney Island, and asked to see their IDs. The brothers asked to know what they had done wrong, (as you can hear in the video), both of them were aware of their rights. One is studying criminal justice and the other is studying law.

That’s when one of the brothers flipped his hands, and it turned into a full-on brawl.
