White Cops Arrest Black Man, Finds He’s FBI : The Facts!
While the video is genuine, the stories are completely untrue. Watch the video and our debunking! We will share the facts directly under the video.
Fact #1 : The Man Was Not An FBI Agent
If you watch the video carefully, you will note that the man never once identified himself as an FBI agent.
One of his friends also clarified that he was not an FBI agent, but a paramedic EMT.
Fact #2 : The Incident Happened One Year Ago
The incident involving Atter happened almost exactly a year ago – on 1 June 2019 at 1 AM.
The Rochester police officers thought he looked like someone with a warrant, and released him after they checked his ID and confirmed he wasn’t the person they were looking for.
The City of Rochester issued an official press release confirming this, as well as the fact that Atter was not an FBI agent.
Fact #3 : The OP Never Made Those Claims
The person (@thisisnike1) who released this video on Instagram, specifically did not claim that Atter was an FBI agent, and said that the video was over a year old :
“Somethin’ been telling me to hold on to this video over a year now, ok.”
This misleading use of a genuine video follows a slew of similar fake news about the George Floyd protests in the US :
