Protests have been held after this incident, as black people in the US fight for their safety.
While all this is happening, Stephanie Benson has shared a story that relates to the ill-treatment that black people are facing.
Stephanie recounted how she felt the urged to kill 6 years ago when her son was falsely accused of sexual assault by a white female.
