A frustrated Black Yale University student who had the cops called on her for sleeping in a common room refused to back down as officers repeatedly pressed her about “where she belonged.”
In a video recorded via Facebook Live, student Lolade Siyonbola stands her ground during incessant questioning by police after one of her neighbors called to report her sleeping in a common area of their apartment building. She accused the same woman of calling the cops on her friend three months ago because “he was in the stairwell and he was Black.”
