The story just surfaced, along with a video, although the incident happened last march.

This is the latest video to once again shine a light on what attorneys call Baltimore Police using excessive force. The video runs just over two minutes. The woman holding the phone is 36-year-old Kianga Mwamba and she is recording the arrest of a man on the street.


Police tell her she can record but yell for her to move out of the way of traffic and park.

“All right, I’ll park,” she said.

“You need to pull the car over,” police said.

“I am about to pull over,” she replied.

Despite her explanation, attorneys say their client was Tasered and snatched out of the car.

“Give me your [expletive] hands. Out of the car, out of the car, out of the car, out of the car. Get out of the [expletive] car,” the police said.

[su_r_sky_ad]The woman in the video—the daughter of a Capitol Police officer—was Tasered as she was slammed to the ground.

In a statement to WJZ, police officials say “During the arrest, language is used that is both offensive and unacceptable. The Baltimore police department expects and demands that officers treat every citizen with respect, regardless of the situation.”

The woman was arrested and charged with using her vehicle to strike an officer. In a statement of probable cause, the officer says the woman accelerated toward another officer and he yelled for her to stop—but attorneys say the video and probable cause statement do not match up.[su_csky_ad]

    You just have to admire how they fearlessly taser cop’s family members! Almost makes me admire their dedication to fairness and duty.

      Well, since most wingnuts, especially the GOP congressional brand, approve of waterboarding and forced anal feeding, shooting or tasing unarmed people must be criminal justice too; just say’in!

    Pigs are lying of course. Too bad we don’t all have parents who are cops.
