Man Details Nearly Being Shot By Police Because He Was Black and Wearing Headphones

This is terrifying.

A man detailed his terrifying and infuriating encounter with police after just stopping at a local drug store to buy some conditioner.

@TheHipsterRebbe detailed the events leading up to being nearly shot as police drew their weapons while he innocently shopped for hair products.

Wearing noise-cancelling headphones the color of his thick, curly hair, he stopped off to purchase conditioner. While pursuing the aisle, he finally settled on his choice and turned to proceed to pay for the product when he was shocked to see an officer with his weapon drawn screaming at him directions he couldn’t hear because of his headphones. He yelled back to please take them off because he couldn’t hear and was afraid to take them off himself for fear that they would shoot him.
