Solange Knowles: ‘A Police Officer Just Pulled a Weapon on Me’

Solange Knowles is pissed off at Miami PD. According to the R&B singer, she was the victim of discrimination after an officer allegedly pulled a weapon on her for doing “nothing illegal.”

“I have literally had my last leg with discriminating police! Miami police department will be notified,” Solange writes on Twitter. “A police officer just pulled a weapon on me…. I have done NOTHING illegal, against the law, or anything of the sort. I am simply tired of police using arrogance, ego and authority as an offense.”

It’s currently unclear why the 26-year-old was pulled over by the officer but according to Solange, the incident is far from over. She plans on taking on the system, even if it means “dying.”

“I’m only tweeting this to raise awareness. I could have left quietly, but I am sick & tired of this scenario being played over & over again,” she says. “I’m ok. I’m safe & sound at my apartment. I’m just beyond frustrated with the system. It is time to do something about it. I am a mother raising a young black child in America. I’m going to die trying!”

She continues: “Been on the phone for the last 20 minutes reporting this incident. Yes, I have the officer’s name. Yes, I have the location. Scare tactics don’t WORK.”
