On February 1, 2021 several cops responding to a nine-year-old child suffering a mental health crisis tackled her after she tried to flee authorities. She was put in handcuffed set in a police car surrounded by several officers. After refusing to get in and crying for her father, police pepper sprayed this African American 9 year old girl. She screamed, and begged “wipe my eyes, please!” To which the officer smugly says “unbelievable”
I’m sure ALL of you know the story. The departments attempts to justify its officers actions, going as far as to ask for donations is repulsive.
We should demand that the cops present at the time of the event are maced as a reminder of its power. We should also demand they taze all the cops that touched and administered pepperspray on a crying 9 year old for good measures because they seem like pricks
