New footage from the raid on Sean "Diddy" Combs' mansion in Holmby Hills is fueling allegations of "excessive force" from the music mogul's ex.

On Tuesday, April 2, Misa Hylton, the mother of Justin Combs, took to Instagram and posted previously unreleased surveillance video from the day federal agents from the Department of Homeland Security ransacked Diddy's property. The sped-up footage shows the moment agents in tactical gear arrived to the mansion with guns drawn. You can see the moment they apprehended people inside the home including the artist's sons Justin and Christian "King" Combs. Hylton believes the agents used "over zealous [sic] and overtly militarized force" while detaining Diddy's family.

"If these were the sons of a non-Black celebrity, they would not have been handled with the same aggression," Hylton wrote in her caption. "The attempt to humiliate and terrorize these innocent young BLACK MEN is despicable!

"Enough is Enough!" she continued. "Did Justin need several laser beams from firearms pointed at his chest?? Did Christian need a gun pointed at the back of his head while he was handcuffed?? How many times have we seen young UNARMED BLACK MEN not make it out of these types of situations alive??"

The raid was part of Homeland Security's investigation into Diddy over sex trafficking allegations. Agents confiscated electronics and firearms from both his homes in Los Angeles and Miami. Neither Justin nor Christian were charged with anything. They were detained and were released later that day. The boys eventually went back to the house that night to recover some of their personal belongings and left again. Nonetheless, Hylton's attorney is looking into their legal options.

So far, Justin Combs has yet to speak publicly since the raids, but his brother has. Last Friday, King Combs wrote a cryptic message on his Snapchat. “Stop with the [cap emoji],” he wrote.
