A Texas mother of four says she was mistakenly pulled over and handcuffed at gunpoint by police as her children watched from the car.
Forney Police say they were responding to a report of a driver waving a gun out of a window and thought the woman’s car was the one they were looking for.
The dashcam video shows the moment that shook Kametra Barbour. The officer screams, “Driver, let me see your hands! Everybody stick your hands out the window!”
The video shows Barbour’s hands above her head and shackled in cuffs. Moments later, her 6-year-old son Ryan comes out too.
“It makes me angry all over again,” Barbour said when watching the video.
It started with a 911 call and a very clear description of a vehicle speeding down the highway, the driver waving a gun out the window. “It’s going to be a beige or tan colored Toyota occupied by four black males,” the 911 called said.
Barbour drives a burgundy red Nissan Maxima. It’s not a match. But after the suspect sped down the road, the 911 called was far back and thought the suspect was exiting the highway. That was the very exit where police spotted Barbour’s car.
As soon as the officers realized they had the wrong car, they tried to calm the children’s nerves. “I’m scared. Are we going to jail?” one of them asked.
Detective Michael Clay told a reporter that “for the nature of the call,” the officers acted fairly.
What should happen here?
Should all just be forgiven?
