What would make policemen draw their guns at this cable service employee? Apparently, for being black.
A jittery neighbor called the police when they noticed a black man surveying a nearby house and peering through windows...in a company "Comcast" shirt.
The police allegedly showed up with guns drawn and pointed at the employee who was checking for underground cable wiring. "I'm so sorry America didn't realized [sic] working was a crime?!!?" he wrote on his Facebook page.
This is ridiculous and did Comcast have your back? Didn't the customers know he was coming?— GloryRevealed (@7_revealed) June 27, 2017
It wasn't enough for the man with the company shirt and van to give away his identity. To the nervous witness, he just looked like he didn't belong in the area and took the appropriate measures thought necessary.
Anything 'legal' left to do?

People vented their frustrations over the obvious racial profiling.
White people suck! And I'm white. Sorry isn't enough. I just hope millennials will do better than my generation (x)— scaredyalycat (@AllisonMickey1) June 29, 2017
What the hell was that cop writing up? This crap is absurd not to mention horrifying. Don't you agree it's worse now? WTF?— Laura (@Laura78703) June 28, 2017
