62-year-old black grandfather choked and held down by three white men who see his legal firearm

So we snatching up old men now because he carries a firearm in a legal carry state? Got ya… smmfh

The United States continues to be separate and unequal in so many ways. Justice, far too often, is applied in an inequitable fashion and basic privileges often afforded to white men, 2015 be damned, just aren’t given to black men of the same age and background.
When 62-year-old Clarence Daniels went to shop at his local Florida Walmart, he had no idea that he would soon be assaulted by another shopper and violently restrained by onlookers. Carrying a legally concealed firearm, properly holstered underneath his jacket, which he was licensed to do, Clarence Daniels, a black man, was spotted in the parking lot by Michael Foster, a white man 20 years his junior.

Foster follows Daniels into the Walmart, chokes him from behind in front of children and bystanders, wrestles him violently to the ground, and is soon joined by other white onlookers who come to help Foster restrain Daniels—in which they take his gun and wait for police to arrive.

During this entire ordeal, Daniels, according to onlookers and the police report, screamed and pleaded over and over again that he was a licensed gun owner permitted to carry his weapon, but his pleas were ignored.
