A black man was filmed being handcuffed by a white cop for eating a breakfast sandwich on a train platform.
Steve Foster, 31, claims he was singled out for the colour of his skin and that other passengers were consuming food too.
It happened at the Pleasant Hill Station in Walnut Creek, California, last Monday, while he waited to board the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) line.
