The war against police brutality is an on going battle that has few highs and way too many lows to count. We often hear about these incidents

after someone has died but never from someone who has survived it.

26-year-old Breaion King, a teacher in Austin, TX was pulled over by an officer on a traffic stop in June of 2015. The officer violently pulled King out of her car and body slammed her. Jacque Reid goes Inside Her Story with King and her attorney Erica Griggs about the incident and the HBO documentary Traffic Stop.

“Well when I think about Sandra Bland. I felt like it could have been me,” explained King. Bland was arrested a month after her in Texas. “I just remember being so hurt when I came back,” she said. “I didn’t get to tell the right people and maybe I could have helped to save her life.”

HBO reached out to King asking if they could make a documentary about her experience.

“Well HBO called and I’m a person that feels energy and vibes. When I met them they seemed so just, I don’t know amazing,” expressed King. “Like they were going to be honest and they genuinely cared about me. So that made me feel like I was able to genuinely share my story.”

Currently King and her attorney Griggs are in the midst of a case filed against the city of Austin and the officer that assaulted her.

    those fucking racist mother fuckers in Texas. How dare they treat a black woman like that. If you get pulled over first thing you do is turn on your camera and start recording. Lock your doors and insist that a supervisor comes out to witness the officer during the stop. If you have friends nearby call them too and have them come to you so they can also record and witness. The time is now to stop these white people from trying to rule our lives. Its time to rise up and win our freedom and separate ourselves from these racist white people.
