Prosecutor: No legal basis for Virginia state trooper to stop Black woman who was pulled from car

Another disgusting case of racial profiling:

In the early morning of March 6, Brooks was headed home when she noticed emergency lights trailing her on I-495.

Believing it was an ambulance in distress, she pulled over on the shoulder of a highway exit ramp close to her home in Alexandria, Virginia, about 15 minutes from where she had eaten dinner, Brooks said in an interview with NBC News on Tuesday.

It was sometime past 2 a.m.

Virginia State Trooper Robert G. Hindenlang was instead pulling her over, only she said she wasn’t sure why despite asking him.

A state prosecutor later concluded there was no basis for the traffic stop.

Yet, Brooks found herself being pulled over in the dark and cold.

"To my surprise, it immediately escalated," said Brooks, a 34-year-old Black woman who works for the Department of Defense.
