Police point guns at face of college football star playing Pokémon Go

Faith Ekakitie, a defensive lineman for the University of Iowa, was playing Pokémon Go in an Iowa City park when police officers pulled their guns on him last week.

Ekakitie wrote about the incident in a Facebook post. But he also tempered his remarks by writing that, from the officers’ point of view, the situation was vastly different—and that a bank nearby had just been robbed. He ended his post by thanking the police, but it’s his powerful message about prejudice that have people talking.
