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.

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.
