The fact that a Virginia police officer wasn’t fired for abusing Lt. Nazario until AFTER the video went viral many months later shows how important social media is for accountability.

@gregkellyusa Which is 100% legal in Virginia. I guess the 2nd Amendment doesn’t apply to Black people, huh @gregkellyusa?

You know when my husband bought a dash camera a few years ago, I thought he was crazy to think he needed another gadget. My man took my hand & told me that it was for me: So that I would know what happened to him if he were ever pulled over. #CaronNazario https://t.co/a99cuN5b0R

Remember when a military man told Kaepernick, a way to protest police brutality was to take a knee, kneel. Remember when he was told he was unpatriotic. Remember how he was locked out the NFL...Where’s the outrage #RaiseAFist #FreshVoices ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ https://t.co/UMAhp89A8r

Important to point out that this officer was fired after the bodycam video became public because of the civil lawsuit, not after the traffic stop, which happened back in December https://t.co/edNdFcPhGt

He also should be criminally charged and face civil liability for his abuse and assault of Lt. Nazario. And when was he fired? Only after the public outcry or immediately? The people of that community deserve to know. https://t.co/ria8nZB1iY

If the black Army Lt. who was stopped by the Virginia state police had not driven to that well lit gas station We would be protesting his death this morning And the police would be apologizing for forgetting to turn on body cams.

I don't know if Lt. Nazario had a ccw permit but in Virginia you can carry a gun openly or in a compartment in your car without a permit. The cops ran the gun to determine it wasn't stolen & did not charge Lt. Nazario with any crimes, let alone a gun crime https://t.co/ZNQu8NDTa9

Despedido este policía fascista de Estados Unidos que roció con gas pimienta a un militar negro, teniente del Ejército, que no oponía resistencia alguna. El agredido denunciará a este nazi y a su compañero. #Virginia #EEUU https://t.co/Ucxuxk1VyG

Why do we need 8 hours of sleep and did we always sleep that way? Turns out, we didn’t. “People in the western world...experienced what is referred to as a segmented...sleep,” said Roger Ekirch, a historian and professor at Virginia Tech. https://t.co/U9hzxzGx0s

The Town of Windsor, Virginia has terminated the employment of Officer Joe Gutierrez for his assault on Army Lt. Caron Nazario. This came shortly after VA Gov Northam called for an independent investigation into the assault. No action on the remaining officers in the assault. @QasimRashid's photo on Virginia
