Sen. Tim Scott discusses his negative experiences with police

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) gave his second speech on police relations with African Americans. He says the country needs to recognize that "because you do not feel the pain, does not mean it does not exist." To illustrate that pain he discussed a few negative experiences he has had with police. What I love about his speech is that it lets white America know that it doesn't matter if you are in a sweat suit or a business suit you can be a victim of police harassment. More importantly it lets people know that you don't have to have a criminal past to be harassed and that sometimes police stops can be bogus.
