As the video shows, Thompson is not resisting in anyway, has both of his hands up, and is simply not willing to get out of the vehicle over an allegation that a cop smelled a plant.
“Sir, my hands are up, and we are on camera,” Thompson says as the Trooper becomes more enraged.
Hewitt then responds by telling Thompson that “you are gonna get your ass whooped in front of f*cking lord and all creation.”
Thompson says again and again that his hands are up and he’s not resisting. However, the enraged Hewitt doesn’t seem to care. He looks to the camera, poses with his soon-to-be victim and says “Watch the show folks” as he attacks Thompson.
Though the camera goes blank, you can still hear Thompson pleading with his attackers to “please get off my neck” as Hewitt continues to beat him.
Instead of listening and getting off of his neck, Hewitt starts shouting, “how do you like that motherf**ker?” as he continues his attack on Thompson.
Thankfully, Derrick survived. Other people have not been so lucky.
