‘Because you’re white’: Officer punished after furious detention of teens

The video opens with Lake Villa Police Detective Esteban Gomez threatening to arrest one of the teens…

Gomez then turns to all the teens and asks them which one of them has “the weed on them?”

The teens laugh at the question, at which point Gomez walks away. While he is walking to another car, one of the teens in the video can be heard asking Gomez why they are being detained.

“Because I’m a teen? Because I have baggy pants?” one of the teens asks.

“Because you’re white,” Gomez replies.
