Videos released showing police officer threatening unarmed black people are nothing new. Unfortunately most of us have become desensitized to that news, much like our reactions to mass shootings. Once something starts to happen all the time, well, it just doesn’t have the same shock value.
But sometimes video captures something so disgusting that it’s hard to look away.
Now, a couple things.
Is all of this necessary over a doll that couldn’t have cost more than $1?
Do police officer’s really think that parents are enlisting their toddler children to shoplift single items from the dollar store?
Why is it ever OK to tell parents who have their children with them, who aren’t being combative in any way and aren’t holding any weapons, that they will ‘shoot you in the f*cking face!’???
Check out some of these reactions from social media down below.

This shit puts hate in your heart. These officers @phoenixpolice need to be prosecuted for their clear racist acts. These officers are the danger. What kind of man tries to rip a mother from her child!? And worse yet have a badge to get away with it. #phoenixpolice https://t.co/EFM32Rurhv— Gabrill_NoChill 🌊🌕🤘🏿 (@Trill_Gabrill) June 14, 2019
#phoenixpolice #PhoenixPD You cops demand respect but allow your fellow officers to act like this?!? All police officers involved should be fired and charged for abuse of authority. You don’t deserve respect you don’t deserve shit!— jeremy (@jeremy68563607) June 15, 2019
Please make sure to tag the police, governor and city! @dougducey @CityofPhoenixAZ @phoenixpolice Residents should be up in arms! And America at large should find this atrocious. For 99¢ 99 CENTS! She was met with GUNS for 99¢ #phoenixpolice #PhoenixPD— Danielle (@danniegurl) June 14, 2019
I pray this family gets every single cent they are seeking. The trauma that the four of them will suffer will remain long after the checks clear. God, bless them abundantly. 🙏🏼 #phoenixpolice #PhoenixPD https://t.co/ybGR9b3pbE— krysta elder (@KrystaElder) June 15, 2019
