3. More detail here....

This happened in Southport, IN, a suburb of Indy. Still trying to find info on how this played out long-term. Many Indiana papers have strict access controls, just as Pence planned it.

See: https://thefreethoughtproject.com/working-car-police-harass-while-black/
Note: This is the original article cited on YouTube and contains some innaccuracies.

As Evans’ video shows, he was simply working on his car this week when a Southport police officer approached him and began harassing him. The officer was relentless in his pursuit to treat Evans like a criminal yet he’d done absolutely nothing wrong.

The officer asked Evans why he was outside, a question that Evans is not obligated to answer. He then asked if Evans lived in the complex and, even though he did not have to answer the officer, Evans told him that he did, in fact, live in the complex.

The conversation should’ve ended there, but it did not. Instead, when confronted with an intelligent man who knew his rights, the officer reacted with hubris and then called for backup, telling Evans that he was “going to do it the hard way.”


(edited to correct name to Jaquon Dean and add a further, more accurate report here)

Man says he was profiled, assaulted by officers outside his Indianapolis apartment complex

INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis man is planning to take legal action after he says he was profiled, then assaulted, by a security officer outside his own apartment.

Jaquon Dean was sitting in his car outside his northwest side apartment Saturday when, he says, a security officer approached asking if he lived there. Dean says the officer demanded to know his name and called in backup when Dean declined to answer his questions. “He’s there every day so he knows I live there,” Dean said.

Dean filmed his interaction with the officer, James Reynolds, who identified himself as a courtesy officer for the complex. Reynolds runs a security company, Reynolds Security Consulting Corp., out of Plainfield and is also a reserve officer for the town of Sheridan. He’s currently running as a Republican candidate for Hendricks County Council.
