Arizona cops terrorize black family at gunpoint ....

https://www.rawstory.com/2019/06/wat...m-dollar-store




An Arizona family claims “trigger-happy” police threatened to shoot them after their 4-year-old daughter walked out of a dollar store with a Barbie doll they hadn’t paid for — without the parents’ knowledge.

Officers responded to the shoplifting report May 29 involving a man and woman with two small children as they drove away from a Phoenix store, reported KSAZ-TV.

“It was crazy, very scary over a dollar store,” said mother Iesha Harper. “I would have bought that doll had I knew.”

Video released this week by police show officers approach the family and order them out of their vehicle in a parking lot.

“Get your f*cking hands up!” one officer screams over and over. “I”m going to put a f*cking cap right in your f*cking head! Get your f*cking hands up! Who the f*ck is that man?”

Harper tells officers she cannot open the door because it doesn’t work properly and she is holding her children, and one of them threatens to shoot her.


“You’re going to f*cking get shot!” he shouts, pointing a gun at the vehicle. “Are you f*cking deaf? Get out the f*cking car!”

The woman begs the officer not to point his weapon at her children, and he tells her he doesn’t “give a sh*t” in video recorded by a bystander.

“I can’t put my hands up,” Harper sobs. “I have a f*cking baby in my hands. I can’t, I’m pregnant. Officer, he’s overdoing sh*t. He’s overdoing it.”

Another officers escorts the man from the car to a police cruiser, where he roughly places him in handcuffs.

“Feet, spread your feet!” the officer barks. “When I tell you to do something, you f*cking do it.”

The man, Dravon Ames, apologizes with his feet spread, as the officers twists his hands behind his back, and the officer asks what they did wrong.

“I didn’t do anything, sir,” Ames insists.

The other officer points his weapon inches away from Harper’s face, and waves it around as he continues barking at her.

“I tell you to put your f*cking hands up, you put your hands up,” he shouts.

The woman shouts back that she had a baby in her arms and couldn’t put her hands up, and a second officer places his hands on her — which caused the bystander to tell him to calm down.

“Attacking a lady, man?” the bystander says. “Really?”

The officers order Harper to set her child down in the parking lot, but she says the girl is a baby and cannot walk yet.

She is then walked by both officers over to the police vehicle without her child, but the video does not show where Harper placed the baby.

“He just seemed like he was trigger happy,” Ames said afterward. “He wanted to shoot someone that day.”

The family is planning a $10 million civil rights lawsuit against the city.

Their attorney said the officers dislocated the 1-year-old’s arm in the incident, which resulted in no charges, and caused Ames to miss a day of work because they impounded his car.

Their claim says the store didn’t report the theft, but officers instead responded based on allegations from an anonymous witness.

'a police officer threatened to shoot a person after failing to comply with demands' would have been another, more honest and less misleading way begin the story.

at that point the barbie doll didn't even matter. that's not what influenced the scene at all.

Complete psycho, I'm glad the state saw fit to give him a gun and authority. Our benevolent protectors.

You are not really going to defend the police on this are you?

If you are, you are an even worse person than I could have ever imagined.

Really? Trigger happy, stupid, and obsessed with their own authority / power is a terrible combination for a Police Officer to have. And that was on display here.

not going to defend anyone, just pointing out the misleading narrative the writer of this article chose to present the story under.

there's not much you can tell from the video because it begins midway through the altercation. the cop is already in an aggressive state and there's no way to tell what caused it to happen. however you can clearly see in the video that the people in the car aren't complying with the cop's demands, justifiably or not. it looks to be a horrific ordeal either way.

whenever a story involves a police officer being aggressive or using force of any kind, most new orgs look to frame them as the villain no matter what so i am usually skeptical. it's very possible that this officer was out of line, but when the person reporting the story is clearly trying to manipulate the facts in a blatant attempt to mislead... it doesn't give me much confidence in it's validity.

How is it misleading there is a fucking video lol

We do know what happened, its on video and there were wintesses lol There is zero reason for a cop to get that mad and pull a gun on a womne and her family because her daughter took a .99 Barbie for the dollar store.

Stop defending this top of police behavior we have seen it over and over again, espeically when it comes to police doing this to black people.

the police were the villian and in the other cases too, its so fucked up you are defneind them. But again it just shows what kind of person you are.

that's not why he pulled his gun out. in fact you have no idea why he pulled his gun out. so you're just lying now.

cops are murdered all the time. when people don't follow their instructions and fail to raise their hands up when told, it tends to make them nervous.

the barbie doll has no place in the headline of this story. it's an afterthought.
