You say that this last bit is unnecessary yet here we are in a Swonky thread about the story. This is the part that made it news worthy to Swonky: "I’m a black man wearing a hoodie and strapped. According to certain social movements, I shouldn’t be alive right now because the police are allegedly out to kill minorities." It's great that this stop had a happy ending, bravo to all parties involved. It also doesn't mean that all cops are good and that, going forward, every stop is going to end well. There are still tons of concerns when it comes to the way in which minorities and minority communities are policed that this one case shouldn't distract from that.
