We thought the police were supposed to de-escalate violence? That’s not what we see; this footage shows a Philadelphia police officer beating up a 16-year-old teenage girl, pummeling her to the ground. The teen was then arrested. The police commissioner, Richard Ross, says we shouldn’t rush to judgement because we can’t see what happens before the video. What the fuck?!!! What else do we need to see to know that no matter what happened, a clearly unarmed female teenager is no threat to a police officer with a gun!!!!
We’re calling this shout it. You should too! #ItsTooMuch
But that happened New Year’s weekend. And before we could even catch our breath with gasping with devastation of what happened to this girl, in Raleigh, NC only one day later, another officer uses sheer and brute force to body slam a 15-year-old black girl. His justification????? No one is sure. You see, this girl was trying to break up a fight between her sister and another student. By all accounts, she was not involved in the fight at all. Yet, out of the blue, and we mean that literally with these officers in blue, a cop picks her delicate body up and body slams her to the ground. That is insane and completely UNJUSTIFIED. You be the judge.
The young mother’s mother says she suffered a concussion. So let us get this straight, she was at school, and police were called to protect & serve...and she gets body slammed with a possible concussion???
In the last year, here are other examples of police handling black teenage girls with brute force and unimaginable excessive force….Compare that to how a mass murder like Dylann Roof gets treated with compassion and taken to Burger King after killing 9 black worshipers IN a South Carolina church. #WTF!!!! #ItsTooMuch
