Rashad's father is a strict, military type, and we learn that this is because David is also a former police officer. He confides in Rashad that he is also guilty of police violence, having killed an innocent black boy in a similar misunderstanding.

My dad shot a kid. I mean, to me, my father was the model of discipline and courage. Sure, he was stern, and sometimes judgmental, but I always felt like he meant well.
