She is right about one thing.
The cop did “touch her inappropriately”. What he should have done when an unidentified person bypassed a security check point was tackle the suspect, handcuff her and haul her down to the security office till they could straighten things out. You know just like they would have done to any white person. If we’re still thinking the cop should have treated her like a white person, she might have got tasered or shot, but no sense dwelling on these things.
