Maybe asking for some form of ID would have enabled the officers not to force this girl to the ground.

The child was watching television in bed when the officers let themselves into her family’s Groveland home with their weapons drawn after the burglary alarm was accidentally activated, reported WFTV-TV.

She said one of the officers pushed her to the ground and held here there with his knee while the other officer pointed his gun at her.

    At least they didn’t just shoot and kill her. A small improvement, I guess. How low have we sunk?

      well, if she had said she’s not the homeowner, as she isn’t and probably doesn’t even know what that actually means, then would they have shot her? and really knee in back and at gun point. they need to lose their jobs PERIOD!!!

    They actually asked her if she was the homeowner. Why is either one of these f***ups still on the police force?

    But what if she was an African-American with a gun, huh?
    What then, eh, libs?
    Yeah, I thought so!

    So, what kind of schooling do these cops have. Are they homeschooled in Mississippi?

    “The two officers, James Festa and John Rigdon, are three-year veterans with previous disciplinary actions in their personnel files.

    Festa was reprimanded in December for botching a child abuse investigation and was suspended in 2013 for sleeping on the job.

    Rigdon was suspended in May, demoted from corporal in 2013, and reprimanded in 2011 – each time for filing false police reports.”

    Why are they still employed as police officers? We are lucky that those two idiots didn’t shoot the girl.

      “Why are they still employed as police officers?” Easy answer – union protection.

      There is a critical shortage of idiots in Florida

    And cops wonder why so many people hate them.

    Alarm installer here.
    There’s no excuse for this.

    . Incompetence is apparently a virtue in law enforcement at Groveland.

  9. rg9rts February 3rd, 2015 at 11:06 am

    I guessed…then confirmed by the photo…SHE is lucky to be alive.

    Cuz burglars always crawl into bed and watch a bit of tv, just for the check of it. If this doesn’t scream lawsuit, I don’t know what does.

    Just look at the kid! You tell me she’s not up to something? So drop that innocent act, (and the cute doll; its a possible I.E.D.) Hands up! Down on the floor, and you won’t get a knee stuck in the small of your tiny back! ;=)
