*A new YouTube video appears to show three Jefferson County, Alabama sheriff’s deputies in the home of an African American man without a warrant and mocking his repeated requests for them to produce one.
The raw cell-phone footage, which does not capture anything that happened before the three officers arrive, shows them standing around in the doorway of the unidentified man’s bedroom as he asks them repeatedly for a warrant.
“Y’all at least owe me an explanation, this is my home,” he says.
At one point, an officer taps the man’s phone with his walkie-talkie, saying, “put that on Facebook.”
“Since you’re recording me, sir, can you mind telling me why you here?” the man asks again. An officer says he told another person in the home.
“But this is not her home,” the man says. The officers then ask him to produce documents proving that he is the homeowner.
The man, again, demands to see a warrant first.
The officers then begin walking out of the home, refer to a woman in the house as “girl” as they leave. The man tells the officers to call her by her name. They then refer to him as “boy,” to which he replied, “I’m a grown-ass man.” An officer responds by asking him his age. When the man doesn’t answer, the officer says, “I didn’t think so.”
“What are you going to do, shoot me?” the man asked them as they stepped onto the porch.
“Yeah, that’s it. Hands up, don’t shoot,” one of the officers replied.
The video ends with no warrant ever produced or any explanation as to why they were there in the first place.
