White received two traffic tickets, one for speeding and the other for an expired license. He asked the officer if it was a protocol to approach his car with his hand over his gun. The officer responded saying it was a police protocol. White took to twitter to express what he experienced in hopes that sharing his story he can save someone’s life.



DeKalb County’s police manual is post online and does not mention anything about putting your hand over a gun during a traffic stop as a protocol.
