A Kenyan man was recently caught on video being arrested outside a strip mall in Los Angeles, California after allegedly stealing alcohol from a liquor store.
In a video clip circulating on social media, the man is heard telling someone questioning and filming him that he is originally from Nairobi, Kenya but does not reveal his identity.
The man also refutes allegations of stealing from the liquor store, insisting that he paid for the drinks contrary to the police report.
The video of his arrest triggered mixed reactions from his compatriots in Kenya and those in the diaspora with some raising questions in the manner in which police handled him.
