For A Traffic Stop , Watch What Happens Next !!
The three-minute video, which shows Florida State Attorney Aramis Ayala being pulled over by two unidentified officers, went viral on Wednesday, raising questions about #drivingwhileblack and racial profiling. When the officer approaches the car, he takes a driver’s license from Ayala, who appear calm throughout the video.
“What agency are you with?” the officer asks. “I’m the state attorney,” Ayala responded. The officer, who by this point is clearly shook, tells Ayala that her license plate did not show up as registered to a vehicle.Police pulled over this black State Attorney — and then couldn't even explain why pic.twitter.com/0mjmTFUkov— NowThis (@nowthisnews) July 12, 2017
He explained he had never seen a license plate not return a registration before.

The officer immediately writes down both names on a piece of paper, hands it to her, and wishes her a good day. Social media immediately lit up with questions of why exactly Ayala was stopped.
In a statement, Ayala said that her plates were properly registered and that her window tint did not violate Florida law. But her goal was to further the conversation.
“My goal is to have a constructive and mutually respectful relationship between law enforcement and the community,” Ayala said. “I look forward to sitting down to have an open dialogue with the Chief of Orlando Police Department regarding how this incident impacts that goal.”
