It’s a strange moment when a father gets emotional when a black man is arrested for threatening his family with a knife, fearing he’ll be seen as racist by his assailants.
Police were dispatched to Flower’s Park in Doraville. GeorgiaIn May 2022, a man allegedly brandished a knife and threatened a man and his family.
Body camera footage from the arrest shows the man sitting peacefully in a park when he claims his family started screaming at him for no reason.
But the father of the family told a different side, saying the man shouted at them and held a pocketknife at them to tell them he wanted them dead.
After police moved to arrest the man after his father, whose identity remains unknown, tearfully told police officers who were about to arrest him, he said, “If you thought you were going to be arrested, call me. I didn’t,” he said.
A man allegedly brandishing a knife to his family is pictured after he showed up at the scene and told police he was being harassed by his family.
The father told a completely different side of the story, saying that a black man was infected.
The man went on to say, “Now he’ll think I’m doing this because I’m white and he’s black.” Or he’s homeless and I’m not. I don’t want that.
“I don’t want him to think I did it in whatever situation he was in. I want him to leave us alone.”
Police were seen escorting the man to a waiting patrol car as he protested his arrest.
The officer told him, “I’ll have you fill out a statement.” He carried a weapon and made terrorist threats. “

“He just wanted us to leave him alone,” one tweeted.
“Humans have spines, but this baby has some kind of jelly-like substance.”
