Police Arrest Black Pastor For Watering Neighbors’ Flowers, Bodycam Footage Shows

Pastor Michael Jennings said he is considering filing a racial discrimination lawsuit against Alabama's Childersburg Police Department.

Michael Jennings was dutifully watering his out-of-town neighbors’ flowers — upon their request — when he was approached by police. Bodycam footage released this week by Jennings’ attorneys show that within minutes, he was arrested, handcuffed and placed in the back of a cruiser.
