Angry White Man Invokes Law Enforcement Injustice to Black People When He Thinks He's on the Receiving End: Video

Jeffery Epstein, a Lakeland, Fla. doctor, started yelling at airline employees in Orlando International Airport, and police arrived on the scene to stop the disturbance. Officers had to detain him because he started acting unruly and refused to calm down.

Epstein, a white man and Donald Trump supporter, felt betrayed by the white police officers.


He screamed: “Don’t beat me up you motherf***ers. You’re being rough with me! You’re treating me like a f**king Black person!”

The incident was caught on cellphone video.

During the struggle, one of the officers used pepper spray on Epstein. He pulled his arms under his chest and remained tense preventing officers from handcuffing him, according to the affidavit.

The incident began when Epstein arrived at the American Airlines ticket counter at 6 a.m. for a 6:24 a.m. flight on Thursday. The airline employees told him it was too late to check in, and that’s when he got irate.

Epstein was charged with resisting arrest, battery on a law enforcement officer and trespassing after a warning and disorderly conduct.

He said, after being released from jail, that he caused disruption to make a point about police use of force.

“If you’re going to do this to a white doctor, who’s 59-years-old, for doing nothing, then why would Black people trust you” Epstein told WESH.

But his statement implies that white doctors should be held in higher regard than Black people.

I’m a conservative Republican, I’m a Trump guy,” Epstein added.

He apparently, is in the percentage of white Americans who feel discriminated against. In a poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, 55 percent of whites surveyed said they believe there is discrimination against white people in the U.S.

Donald Trump catered to white grievance during the 2016 presidential campaign and has done so as president as well,” according to NPR.

Esptein also told WESH of the incident, Until the police fix this problem, I don’t blame Black people for being upset when they get arrested.”

Social media users called out the doctor for saying he was being treated like a Black person:
