But since it was a black cop, you won’t hear much about it.
The Dayton Police Department launched an internal investigation on October 11 into the incident involving Clifford Owensby after footage from the responding officer’s body camera went viral online. On October 8, the police department also released a community briefing via YouTube that explained the traffic stop in full detail.
In an October 8 press statement, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley said that the video footage of the traffic stop was “concerning.”
“No matter where you live or what you look like, everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect when dealing with Dayton Police,” Whaley said in a statement obtained by local news station WHIO TV. She added that the city has released body camera footage from the incident and “a full investigation is already underway.”
