Another way this goes down:

A cop will just run a tag, maybe the driver flinched, or looked in their mirrors too many times - nothing that would even cover the minimum for reasonable suspicion. The owner/driver report will come back, with previous infractions/arrests/etc., so at this point, the cop hasn't done anything that violates anything procedurally, they can literally run every single tag they see.

In the case above, if the there was criminal history, so now they can be heavy handed and make a stop based on some trivial bullshit like a tint check - the criminal history isn't the justification for the stop, it's just the "motivation" that the person might be an opportunity for an arrest (if that makes sense).
That is how they did Sandra Bland. The officer got up behind her with flashing lights, and when she pulled over to let him by, he pulled up and accused her of changing lanes without a signal.

Which is a legit reason to be stopped where I grew up, but insanely ridiculous in the USA. That's what the article mentioned didn't get.

Perhaps not police brutality, per se, but


wtf

They found the body of a 29-year-old woman in an old police van parked near police HQ and "have no idea how it got there".

Police officers go out “hunting activists” in Minneapolis on May 30, 2020 by shooting non-lethal rounds at them from an unmarked van. When one of them returns fire, not knowing they are police, they charge him with being an attempted cop killer.

This is literally assault with a deadly weapon.

On a plane

Perhaps he needed her to discontinue being black?
Evidently for that Sheriff's dept, at least discontinuing to be Black in Louisiana, since some of them keep having an issue with Black people there.

This is so sick and disturbing. Not wearing body cameras, bad attitudes and violent, unnecessary force. And it’s usually a person of color, and nobody sees a problem. How about these folks practice what they preach? You know how they always blame black and brown people for their own problems? Well, maybe it’s time the police cleaned up their own act from within.

Why is there nobody working to bring good cops and activists together? Community events, neighborhood policing, outreach efforts… No, let’s spend more money on tanks and paying bad cops for desk duty until we can “absolve” them of whatever horrific they’ve committed.

More police picking on little black kids:


On the morning of January 10, 2020, a parent complained to school officials about a sketch N.B. and other students had drawn in response to another student bullying N.B. The parent unreasonably insisted that school officials call the police.

After arriving on school grounds, police interrogated 10-year-old N.B., handcuffed her with excessive force, arrested her without probable cause, and transported her to the police station—all without letting N.B. see or speak with her mother. The police and school officials took these traumatizing actions despite the fact that N.B. was cooperative and did not pose any danger to any person or herself—and without accommodating N.B.’s disability, which was documented with the school.
