Once again we see another instance of shopping while black. Apparently a JCPenny sales associate in Indiana put a black woman in a chokehold while shopping with her family. He proceeded to do this while stating that the woman and her family “do not belong here”. What exactly does that mean? When will the madness stop?
Afterwards the police were called. Store security found that the woman had no stolen items in her person. She was later released and sent home. The issue is even if she stole something the associate had no right to handle her the way he did. Proper protocol would warrant for him to call mall security and have them deal with the issue. Why did he take the issue so personally? This is not a family owned business so why did he feel he needed to take matters into his own hands?
The woman and her family are considering filing a law suit. Check out the video below:
