Will Shoot In Your Face: Cops After 4-Year-Old Took Doll From Store

Will Shoot In Your Face: Cops After 4-Year-Old Took Doll From Store

"I assure you that this incident is not representative of the majority of Phoenix police officers who serve this city".

Gallego issued a statement Saturday saying "it was completely inappropriate and clearly unprofessional". "As a mother myself, seeing these children placed in such a terrifying situation is beyond upsetting".

Additionally, we're told Spiro's team plans to help the family with their civil lawsuit against the city of Phoenix.

Gallego, the Phoenix mayor, said in response to the incident, the city will be speeding up its implementation of police body-worn cameras across the entire police department. But passersby recorded the encounter.

Footage of the incident spread quickly online and sparked backlash, with dozens of people, including a few state lawmakers, criticizing the department for having officers on the force as irrationally aggressive as the ones seen in the video.

While threatening Ames, one of the officers had said, "I'm going to put a cap in your a-". The officer also allegedly said "I'm gonna shoot you in your fucking face". Police followed, and the vehicle stopped to let Harper's aunt out.

The first officer pulled Ames, 22, from the vehicle, pushed his head into the pavement, handcuffed him and yelled that Ames better follow orders, according to the claim.

A second video of the incident shows Ames on the pavement outside his auto with the same officer, Meyer, on top of him and placing him in handcuffs. Then, the officer dragged him upright and punched him in the back, the claim said.

An officer is seen attempting to yank the child from her arms before a bystander offers to take her children. After Harper gave her baby to an onlooker, both she and her fiance were handcuffed and put in a police vehicle.

Forget the Pixel 3 - Google just officially revealed its next flagship smartphone
Going around the front of the Pixel 4 we don't have any official render but some leaks suggest there is a top bezel for a speaker. This is now the honour of the Huawei P30 Pro , but Google could be coming for that crown with the latest Pixel smartphone .

The couple - Dravon Ames and Iesha Harper - said they did not know their daughter had the doll when they left the Family Dollar store, late last month.

Harper got out of the vehicle holding her 1-year-old. Ames claims that not long after they pulled into the lot of the complex, an officer came over to their vehicle window, yelling and threatening to kill them.

The incident occurred in May. Not long after leaving the Family Dollar store, Ames said that he and his partner arrived at a nearby apartment complex to drop the little girl off with a babysitter.

"When I tell you do something, you f-- do it!"

Police further said that, because the stolen property was returned, store employees said they did not want to prosecute the case, so no one was charged.

"I, like you, am disturbed by the language and the actions of our officer", Williams said in a video the police department posted to Facebook.

The two officers involved have been taken off of street duty and are on non-enforcement duties. "We are seeing situations of individuals who are tarnishing our reputation not just as Phoenix police officers but as law enforcement in general and I am certain that we are going to fix that".

While Ames and Harper were not arrested, they were taken to the police station and were detained for quite a while.
