Demetria Brown knew the exact moment she decided she'd had it.
She'd just watched a video of George Floyd pinned under an officer's knee, saying he couldn't breathe as he begged for his life. She sobbed as she played it over and over.
On June 1, a week after Floyd's death, she quit her job as a detention officer for the Los Angeles County Probation Department. In the midst of the global coronavirus pandemic, she sold her house, stuffed her belongings into 13 duffel bags and relocated to Puerto Vallarta on Mexico's Pacific coast.
Brown, 42, is one of many African Americans leaving the United States permanently for many reasons, including racism and fear of police brutality. Her flight landed in her new hometown on June 25, a month to the day Floyd died.

She ain't seen nuthin yet
That story does not pass the smell test.
The tension between Blacks and Hispanics in this country is real and it is palpable. Being a Black person on their home turf would have to be a really unpleasant experience I’d think.
Well good for her....the land of happy butterfly wings and no crime.....
[ fear of police brutality
She ain’t seen nuthin yet ]
That’s for certain.
She’s about to experience a whole ‘nother thing.
I’m glad she moved to Mexico. Sounds like she did not belong here. Now we’ll see how she likes how the Mexicans treat each other and how they treat black immigants from the US. I think she has a big surprise coming.
what utter B/S from the communist propaganda network.
She has never seen brutality till she see’s it in Mexico!
She has never seen brutality till she sees it in Mexico!
Hispanics hate black people.
Sadly, 10 to 1 she is back in the US inside of 5 years.
Hmmm.... age 42? Seems that that is a good age to achieve 20 years of LEO service and retirement eligibility. Maybe, just maybe, she moved to Mexico for lower cost of living for her retirement dollars. Just me being cynical.
Whether it’s the pandemic fear, or the racism oversell, or the police brutality narrative, I am staggered at how easily people lose all sense of perspective and reason and believe absolutely anything and completely succumb to their irrational fears.
Been there 3x through the years. Lovely town, appears to be a relatively safe place to live.
That said, I’m never going back to Sunny Mexico, again. Glad I got to see a lot of it in the mid 80’s and early 90’s.
Socialism (and with it lawlessness and crime) ruins everything it touches. :(
You left America over a hoax. I’m sure the Mexicans will treat you with less racism.
My eyes failed me. For a second I thought her name was Dementia Brown.
Should have watched the whole movie and not just the trailer...
