Previously, BLACK ENTERPRISE reported the viral video of Kansas City civil rights activist Keiajah Brooks demanding the resignation of the police chief in an impassioned speech about the systemic racism that exists within law enforcement during a public hearing with the police commissioner. Since the meeting, Brooks says that cops have been following her since the viral video made headlines.

In a series of posts on Twitter, Brooks shares a video of police cars circling her surroundings on multiple occasions. In one of the video posts, she is seen confronting the officers following her.

“I then was sitting in my car and 818 drove through my PRIVATE APARTMENT COMPLEX PARKING not once, not twice, but three times as I sat in my car to try and intimidate me,” she wrote. “Not knowing I’ve seen the white girl in the passenger seat ALL DAY.”

On her Instagram page, Brooks then shared hateful messages she has been receiving since the meeting and has since had to hire private security since receiving multiple death threats.
