Storyboard Text

  • Rashad, an African American teenager, enters Jerry's Corner Market to buy a bag of chips.
  • Rashad bent over on the floor to find his phone in his duffel bag. A woman in the store didn't see him and proceeded to trip over him.
  • The woman fell over, and the white cop on duty began to ask if she was okay. The store clerk told the cop that the boy was stealing a bag of chips.
  • The cop began to question Rashad and attempted to arrest him. Rashad tried to show the cop the money he intended to use to purchase the chips, but it was too late.
  • The cop wrestled Rashad to the ground, making him as uncomfortable. All Rashad could do was sit there, baffled and confused. 
  • The cop took Rashad outside and slammed his head into the pavement again and again. This controversial situation of racism and police brutality is the driving force behind the story.
