White cop tackles black mom after she called police for help | New York Post
If this cop misused his authority to kidnap people and help his friend or "kin" out instead of the victim then I'm all for enhanced x5 quintupled sentence because these rogue cops really need to be reigned in. Like that cop who just got sentenced to life in prison for tazing the handcuffed, non-fleeing person 12 times until they died. *applause* Every time a cop that is rogue gets away with crime it has the potential to make that whole family and maybe many more distrust the cops FOR LIFE. A cop rogue that abuses authority is 100 times more dangerous than a criminal who has no protection from the cops.A white cop has been placed on restricted duty Thursday after video surfaced showing him tackling and arresting a black woman who had called police to report her child had been attacked.
The cop was responding to Craig’s call to police that a white neighbor had just grabbed her son by the neck for ignoring his order for the 7-year-old boy to pick up a piece of garbage on the ground.
The straight-faced cop asks only: “Why don’t you teach your son not to litter?”
And when Craig, 46, says she doesn’t believe a littering charge rationalizes the alleged attack, the officer is heard asking one more question: “Why not?”
Craig tells the cop he “pissed [her] off” and argues that the officer has no idea what she teaches her son at home. The cop then threatens to put her under arrest.
“If you keep yelling at me, you’re going to piss me off and I’m going to take you to jail,” the officer says.
Sensing trouble, Craig’s 15-year-old daughter suddenly tries to intervene and push her mother away, the video shows. But the cop tosses the teen to the side and pulls his Taser.
Craig, according to jail records, was arrested for resisting arrest.
Merritt said he wants all charges against his clients dropped, as well as charges filed against the neighbor. He said the Fort Worth Police Department should also remove the officer from the force and investigate possible criminal charges.
“Your phone is evidence,” the officer replies, as another scuffle ensues and the phone drops to the ground. “Let go of the phone. You touch me and you’re going to jail!”
