A 9-year-old girl experiencing a mental health crisis was handcuffed and pepper-sprayed by police. Her family called due to a disturbance, and the police came, restraining her and pushing her into the snow to handcuff her. As they did this, the young girl could be heard screaming for her father and pleading for them to stop. She was hysterical and her body was covered in snow. When she refused to get into the police car, one officer told the other to, "just spray her at this point." The other officer did as he was told, spraying the girl, putting her into the back seat of the police car, and closing the door. These were the same NYPD police officers who suffocated Daniel Prude, a black man, to death by placing him in a hood. They also lied to cover up his death, claiming it was from a drug overdose. No matter what anyone tries to say, this is a race issue. If this were a white girl, they would not have acted in such violent and hateful ways.
