Activist and actor Kendrick Sampson can be seen in a now VIRAL clip being PUNCHED and having a GUN pulled on him by the Colombian police!!
HBO ‘Insecure’ actor and Black Lives Matter activist Kendrick Sampson says he was punched in the face by a Columbian police officer who then arrested him.
Video shared on social media shows a confrontation between a man and a uniformed officer outside a shop in Cartagena on Tuesday.
About a second into the clip, the officer can be seen striking the man who stumbles back due to the force of the blow.
The officer then draws his gun from its holster and cocks it before attaching the weapon back to his waist.
That MAN is none other than ‘Insecure’ star Kendrick Sampson.
“This is the 6th time I was stopped in five days,” he wrote.
The officer “punch me in my jaw and pull his gun on me [sic],” he said. “He then cuffed me and dragged me through the streets. I did not resist any legal procedure.”
He added: “This is a violation of human rights that happens every day with no accountability. My heart hurts for people here, in the US and worldwide who get abused in the shadows (or in broad daylight with no accountability) and don’t have that protection.”
Sampson, who led in BLM protests held in Los Angeles earlier this year and played Nathan in Insecure, said it was the 5th time in six days he had been stopped by police in Cartagena, a port city in north Columbia.
