Virginia attorney general launches civil rights probe of Black Army officer's violent traffic stop

Source: Washington Post

Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring (D) on Monday said he had launched a broad civil rights probe of the police officers and department involved in the violent traffic stop of a Black Army officer.

Also Monday, the town of Windsor announced that a Virginia State Police investigation of the incident had begun and that town officials had turned over “numerous requested documents.”

Outrage over the encounter, which was seen in a viral video, continued simmering as some prominent Black leaders, including Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) and state Sen. L. Louise Lucas (D-Portsmouth), pushed for something beyond the State Police probe that Gov. Ralph Northam (D) ordered Sunday. They want federal officials to investigate.

There was widespread agreement that the tiny Windsor Police Department — with about seven sworn officers, the chief included — should not be entrusted to dig into why Caron Nazario, an Army second lieutenant pulled over because his newly purchased SUV lacked a permanent license plate, was held at gunpoint, pepper-sprayed, struck and handcuffed. The temporary tag was taped to the window, Nazario said in a federal lawsuit he filed against the officers.

1. His civil rights

Should be part of his lawsuit..unless that’s a separate lawsuit but he was certainly violated. The community will demand better after they’re sued, I’m sure. I hope this Lt. wins big

Big payday should come. And, he was in full uniform? (I read that.) It's like a uniform flip off. How stupid of them. Huge settlement coming.
