A video has surfaced online showing the moment a Black man identified as Deandre, was assaulted by a white family, for taking a stroll in his neighbourhood in Columbia, South Carolina.
The shocking video showed the family harassing and threatening the young man.
The video shows the moment a white man harassed a black man taking a walk in his own neighbourhood and asked him to walk out of the neighbourhood because ”he doesn’t belong there.”
The white man, Jonathan Pentland, is a United States Army sergeant first class, and he’s currently trending on Twitter after the video went viral.
He’s being accused of being a racist and viewers have reported him to his boss.
In the video, Jonathan and his family are seen harassing and threatening a young black man, named Deandre, who explained he was just taking a walk in the neighbourhood in Columbia, South Carolina.
Jonathan asked the man to walk out of the neighbourhood and hinted at violence if he doesn’t.
The black man explained that he lives in the neighbourhood but Jonathan and his family didn’t believe him and Jonathan told him, “You’re in the wrong neighbourhood, motherf**ker.”
At some point during the encounter, Dendre tells the family to call the police and Jonathan’s wife, Cassie Pentland, tells him the police have already been called.
