A video has gone viral showing officers threatening to arrest a woman who called the police on an African American real estate investor in Memphis who was inspecting a for sale property after continuing to scream at and harass the man, demanding he "get out of the neighborhood."
“You keep the camera rolling. If you have any problems with her, what I want you to do is call me back over here,” a white male officer reassures Hayes. “She will go to jail for that.”
The woman says something that sounds like, “I’m friends with the sheriff,” but the same officer shuts her down.
“I don’t care if you’re friends with the president,” he snaps. “You’re going to let him do what he’s going to do. If you try to do anything to stop him, I’m going to take you to jail.”
“Hurry up, do it and get out!” the woman sneers in Hayes’ direction.
Again, the cops were not having it.
“No, no. He can take his time,” a female officer chimes in.
“He can take all day,” the male officer agrees.
