“This is one man talking to another. There is a man behind that badge, be like a man. That is a coward pointing a gun at me”
A powerful video was submitted to the Free Thought Project which shows a dramatic interaction between a man and La Quinta police.
Alejandro Natividad, a resident of Indio pulled out his phone and caught his incredible non-violent resistance on video Sunday as police were pointing guns at him.
Natividad, had committed no crime, yet when police chose to interact with him, guns were drawn and he was told to get face down on the concrete.
Natividad non-violently refused to lay down because he knew he was right, and knew that he committed no crime. But this decision did not go over well with police.
Another officer showed up and drew his pistol as well and pointed it at Natividad. At this point Natividad is incredibly nervous but continues to film and holds his ground, refusing to lay down for doing nothing wrong.
The resultant video is inspiring to say the least.
