Police Violently Arrest Woman For Use of Curse Word
The unwarranted use of force in the arrest of a person of color is again making headlines. This incident involves white police officers in suburban Mobile, AL taking a female Waffle House patron violently to the ground for a verbal dispute that was initiated over a nominal charge for plastic silverware. Things had appeared as if they would result in nothing more than the patron posting a poor Yelp review, that is until an officer in the establishment claimed to hear a curse word and proceeded to arrest the patron. She was violently taken to the ground and one officer was caught on video threatening to break her arm, a second officer took aim and pointed his Taser at her head. The local community has rallied around the victim.
For those who have been hurt by the actions of the police, the police brutality attorneys from Action Legal Group can help pursue a claim to recover damages.
