Cop Puts Gun To Unarmed Man’s Head, Says, “I’ll Kill You”

Newly released body cam footage from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department shows an officer placing his gun to the head of an unarmed black man and saying, “I’ll kill you, you understand?”

Naturally, the department is saying that the officer did nothing wrong and his decision to put a gun to someone’s head and threatening to blow it off was justified.

On March 26, James Yarborough was a passenger in a car that was pulled over by the CMPD for traffic violations. Not wanting to be arrested, James decided to make a run for it. James claims that the driver, whom he says he simply hitched a ride from because his own car was out of gas, had a gun and that’s why he decided to run.

Yarborough, who has previously been convicted for illegally having guns, claims that the man in the car tried to sell him a pistol, and when the cops flashed the car, it made more sense in his mind to run rather than getting charged for having another gun.

He told local reporters, “The only thing I did wrong that day was run. That is the only thing I did wrong that day.”

Officer Jon Dunham eventually removed the gun from Yarborough’s head, and Yarborough was eventually placed in handcuffs, but not before another officer threatened to “light him up” with a taser. Officers also admit to punching and elbowing him.

“That moment felt like—it felt like it might have been my last day,” Yarborough told WBTV.

In his statement, Dunham wrote, “At this point I observed him shove his hand towards his waistband. He was completely uncooperative. I believed he was reaching for a gun in an attempt to seriously hurt me or Officer Michaels; knowing that suspects are known to frequently place guns in the front if (sic) their waistbands, I drew my pistol and threatened to shoot him.”

Dunham admitted to using force against Yarborough saying that he punched him several times, despite this admission and video footage, he was cleared by internal affairs.

The charges of misdemeanor resisting a public officer, assault on an officer inflicting serious injury and felony felon in possession of a firearm were all dropped because of lack of evidence and no gun was actually found in his possession.

Yarborough says he is choosing to speak up now because he doesn’t feel like justice is being served. He also claims that he still feels (understandably) scared of police, saying, “Even now I sweat in my sleep. I wake up looking out the window because I’m like ‘they’re coming to get me again.”

Here’s the video footage of the incident.
