Roland Martin talks to Mark Hughes, the man who was mistakenly identified as a suspect by Dallas Police Department during the deadly protest that took the lives of five officers. Mark’s brother Corey also joins the conversation to discuss the treatment Mark faced while being interrogated.

“It’s been a complete nightmare, literally. Going from someone who is out there just for support of my brother and the movement, to being a suspect. My life is in jeopardy. I’m constantly looking over my shoulder. I would’ve never thought this would happen to me in a million years,” Mark Hughes said.

The differences between a white man carrying a gun and a black one:

“A white man can carry their firearm without suspicion but the first time a black man exercises their right it’s a problem. A black man can’t do what a white man can do in this country,” Corey Hughes said.
