    Please look at this video and answer honestly: if this family were white

    https://youtu.be/VWAybDJS7ng


    what would be the public reaction to the police responding this way to an alleged shoplifting incident?

    Would people believe this was a justified reaction to a child allegedly shoplifting a doll?

    Would there be any argument that the officer behaved this way because he was in fear of his life?

    If it was a white family you never would have heard about it. It's a family that committed a crime - in this case a black family - and then decided to argue with or ignore the police orders. If you don't obey legal police orders you can expect it to escalate.

    The left, including black leftists think that black people don't have to obey police orders and then when things escalate they blame the police.

    Naturally the video doesn't start until the policeman is yelling at them to raise their hands. And even they they don't. Argue or act beligerant and the police will escalate it because they don't know what your intentions are or what you will do...........no matter your skin color.

    2. No one would have thought twice, the police likely not even involved.

    They may have just let them go doll and all. Very sad situation.
    They're saying that the child took the doll but I've seen reports that the store video showed that the parents did.
    Liberals are divorced from reality and they think it's great. When you live in la la land you're never wrong, it's always the other person/groups fault and you can believe what you want to believe and call it 'truth'.

    More information is coming out about the Phoenix cops and the shoplifting of a doll...

    The cops were still out of control.



    BUT...

    It appears to be that the family was shoplifting, according to the store's surveillance video.

    No doubt more will come out as time goes on.

    Perhaps more about the family themselves, and the two cops.

    1. I don't understand the point you are trying to make

    2. This is one of those times no one may be in the right.

    The family was shoplifting, and the cops over-reacted.

    3. Wrong! You're justifying and victim blaming. Even if they did...

    The police reaction was unwarranted and over the top. He threatened to shoot a pregnant woman holding a baby for petty theft.

    10. *** there is no video of the father shoplifting !!!*** it's the child who took a baby doll!!

    Police department is full of s*** it's just a child who took the baby doll big freaking deal that does not mean pull a gun and threatened to kill a pregnant woman holding a freaking child

    This is disgusting

    and even if the father did take anything even if the mother took anything you don't pull a gun on a pregnant woman holding a freaking child

    12. I agree, the cops over-reacted, but the store video shows the couple lied.

    They told the media they paid for everything but the doll.

    The store video shows them walking out WITHOUT paying.

    Are they lying about anything else?

    And why did they reject the apology from the police chief?
    Because they feel entitled to shop lift without consequences.

    as a white man I have NEVER, EVER been talked to or treated that way by any Police Officer.


    Having said that, I have NEVER, EVER shoplifted or stolen anything in my life, and in the few encounters I have had with Law Enforcement over traffic violations I have treated the Police Officers with respect, courtesy and cooperation.

    Are DUpipo stupid enough to think I care about the skin color of a thief?
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.

    They are looking so hard to find something to blame conservatives and Trump , nice try media but you fail again and they were not innocent, maybe verbally abused but other than that a pretty normal encounter with police and thieves and people who think they are above the law. I like the video of the thief talking out his ass thinking he got away with it and got 10 million for making the police look like the bad guys. Put this ass clown in jail where he belongs, another thing check and see if they are living on our dime. With all those kids something looks typical here. What I saw here was a young child learning how to walk into a store and walk out with what ever they want without paying for it.

    It ain't that hard. Do exactly what the cop says. Answer questions w/o high volume or attitude. 99.99% it goes smoothly. The only thing more self-defeating than arguing with a cop is arguing with a judge.
