Aja Brown, the Mayor of Compton, was unjustly pulled over last year, along with her family and mistreated by a Compton Sheriff’s Deputy, KABC reports. Mayor Brown shared the disturbing details outside of Compton City Hall this past week.
According to Mayor Brown, “I rolled my window down and asked why I was being pulled over,” Brown said. “Within seconds almost seven to nine sheriff deputy vehicles descended upon the scene.”
Brown felt that she was treated like a criminal by multiple sheriff’s deputies, highlighting the psychological impacts of police misconduct and overzealousness on the part of law enforcement.
“They ordered me out of my vehicle and they asked me to put my hands on top of the police veuyhicle so they could search me as if I were a criminal,” Brown said. “Mind you, I was accompanied by my husband and my infant daughter in the back seat. I did not look like someone that is trafficking drugs.”
