A black man opening up his lemonade business in San Francisco last Tuesday is wondering why he was questioned by police when he was just opening his doors. Gourmonade owner Vicktor Stevenson told the news that four police officers approached him at 6:45 a.m. last Tuesday while he was opening the business.
They said they had a report of someone burglarizing the business. After initially believing he set off the alarm of his store, Stevenson realized why he was being questioned.
He complied with the officers requests and questions but now wonders if he was racially profiled, leading to the interaction with officers.
Stevenson said the police were professional. But was this a case of racial profiling?
Stevenson says he's had other interactions with police while just walking the streets and that this was tame in comparison.
