It happened again. Video has emerged of police aggressively responding to a disturbance at a local pool in Fairfield, Ohio, last week. One officer can be seen slamming a 12-year-old girl by the neck against a police car. The police also used pepper spray against another, who can be heard saying, “You just maced me in my mouth.” All because of a minor rule infraction at the pool.
“After reviewing the video, Fairfield Mayor Steve Miller ultimately came down on the side of the police. “This is an unfortunate situation and our officers had a tough situation there. But I think they did a good job in showing restraint,” he said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.”
I’m sorry, but in what world is a grown man breaking an innocent 12-year-old girl’s jaw and ribs “showing restraint”?!
