After a very short introduction from Meyers, the program has pivoted over to Late Night writer Amber Ruffin, who has taken a few minutes each night to share her own experiences with the police in America.

On Tuesday, Ruffin described an encounter from a few years ago when a different officer pointed a gun at her.

Ruffin says she was skipping down an alleyway to make her friend laugh, when a police car suddenly began flashing its sirens.

Finally, on Wednesday, the comedian told a story about a police officer stopping her outside her own house, in her pyjamas, while she was handing her friend his wallet.

"Everything she says to us, she says with her hand on her gun," says Ruffin, explaining that the officer was convinced she'd caught Ruffin and her friend doing something illegal.
