“Unbelievable,” says the officer who pepper-sprayed a 9-year-old child.

Just how despicable and criminally stupid are Rochester pigs, you ask? Well, let’s see….

Rochester police handcuffed and pepper-sprayed a 9-year-old girl, body-cam footage shows.

Handcuffed and sobbing, the 9-year-old girl screams “I want my dad!” repeatedly as Rochester, N.Y., police officers try to force her into a patrol car. When the girl keeps refusing to swing her legs inside, one officer pulls out his pepper spray.

“Just spray her at this point,” the unidentified male officer tells a female colleague in a video of the Friday incident.

Moments later, the male officer sprays the girl himself as she shrieks in pain.

The graphic body-camera footage, which Rochester police released Sunday, left city leaders demanding answers for how a family disturbance call quickly escalated into a use of force against a young girl in obvious distress.

“I’m not going to stand here and tell you that for a 9-year-old to have to be pepper-sprayed is okay,” said Rochester Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan at a news conference on Sunday.

Rochester suspends police officers who pepper sprayed a 9-year-old girl

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren (D) added that as a mother of a 10-year-old daughter, the video “is not anything you want to see.”

The footage has drawn new scrutiny onto a Rochester police force already in turmoil over its treatment of Daniel Prude, a mentally ill Black man who died in March after police put a hood over the 41-year-old’s head. Video from that incident sparked national protests and led to the firing of the police chief and a new emphasis on sending mental health experts rather than police to deal with similar crises.

But the video released Sunday shows not enough has changed, activists said.

“What we saw in that video is police escalating the situation rather than de-escalating,” said Ashley Gantt, a co-founder of Free the People Roc, a community activist group in Rochester.

At least 7 police officers suspended in Rochester, N.Y., after release of video showing hood placed on Black man who later died

The incident began around 3:20 p.m. Friday, when police responded to a “family trouble” call, Rochester Deputy Police Chief Andre Anderson said at Sunday’s news conference. Officers were told the 9-year-old girl, who hasn’t been identified, was suicidal.

“She indicated she wanted to kill herself and she wanted to kill her mom,” Anderson said.

When officers tried to “secure her,” Anderson said, the distressed girl ran away. The first video released by police shows an officer running after the girl along a snowy street. Once he catches up to her, he asks, “What is going on? How can I help?”

The girl’s mother then arrives and argues with her daughter, causing her to grow more upset. With two officers restraining each of the girl’s hands, video shows, she slides to the street, thrashing and kicking at police as she pleads to see her dad. Officers then handcuff her and try to force her into the back of a police cruiser. According to Anderson, they were trying to transport her to a hospital.

But the girl continues to scream and resists going inside the car, the second video shows. At one point, she pleads with the officers to “stop” and says they were hurting her. She also says that she “demands” to see her father.

“I don’t care what you demand,” one officer says in the video.

When another officer tries to push her into the back seat complains, “You’re acting like a child,” she responds, “I am a child.”

Minutes later, video shows an officer pepper-spraying the girl, leaving her crying in the back seat as officers finally close the door. “Unbelievable,” says the officer who pepper-sprayed her.

The girl was taken to Rochester General Hospital and released later that day. Police would not comment on whether any of the officers involved have been suspended or fired.

For local activists, the video is further proof that police treat people in the midst of mental health crises as criminals.

Sara Taylor, a social worker and administrator in Rochester, said her 12-year-old daughter has been arrested 10 times while suffering mental health crises. When Taylor’s daughter had an episode in November and called police, Taylor said they ignored her pleas for mental health care and handcuffed her.

“I’m screaming, ‘Please you gotta take it easy she’s a little girl,’ ” Taylor said. “They take her right out of my house like a criminal after I told them she has a psychiatric condition.”

On Sunday, Rochester leaders acknowledged a need for change in how police address mental health crises. In the wake of Prude’s death, the city created a Person in Crisis Team,which is meant to send mental health professionals rather than police to similar cases. Warren said the team was not dispatched because there were several events happening simultaneously that “required a police response.”

“It is clear from the video we need to do more in support of our children and families,” Warren said.

But Taylor, who started an organization that helps low-income parents cope with the challenges and stigma attached to having a child with mental health issues, said that need has long been evident.

“Our community has a heightened distrust right now because of Daniel Prude and now we have those impacting our babies. Are you kidding? It’s not okay,” Taylor said. “It’s shameful that it had to come to this.”


From The Tumalo Lookout:

I can already hear it now: Rochester’s police union claims everything these pigs did was by the book.

And why wouldn’t it be “by the book?” Pigs and their bought-and-paid-for lawmakers wrote the book. For their own job security. Certainly not for public safety.

Notice the Police Chief’s verbal sleight-of-hand here.

“I’m not going to stand here and tell you that for a 9-year-old to have to be pepper-sprayed is okay,” said Rochester Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan at a news conference on Sunday.

The Washington Post, February 1, 2021.

Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan didn’t say, “… for a 9-year-old to be pepper-sprayed….”

She said, “… for a 9-year-old to have to be pepper-sprayed….” [emphasis added.]

In other words, the latest Rochester Police Chief is saying that the 9-year-old “had” to be pepper-sprayed.

What the Hell?

The street pigs who got caught by their own body camera need to be fired.

Their conduct is reprehensible and despicable — let alone “unbecoming.”

And their “professional” judgement is dangerously incompetent. It’s utterly unacceptable, even by Rochester standards.

These pigs don’t deserve the public’s respect or sympathy — and especially not our trust.

They aren’t guardians. They’re sadistic child abusers. I’ll lay odds that one or another of them will kill someone during their careers. And get away with it.

Rochester Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan needs to be fired, too.

Just what makes so many cops so goddamned stupid that they can’t use their heads and hearts when they’re confronted with challenging children?

(It’s a rhetorical question.)

And cops want us to think of them as heroes and guardians.


Now, for the answer to today’s question, “Just how criminally stupid are Rochester pigs?”

Here’s a photo of them handcuffing and pepper spraying the 9-year-old girl.

And this photo isn’t from The Washington Post. Nope.

It’s from Business Insider. That’s in India.

And that’s how fast and how far the indefensible, morally reprehensible, despicable and sadistic imagery of these Rochester pigs spreads. World-wide. Instantaneous.

The only thing is, most folks in India won’t distinguish the few pigs from the rest of the Rochester cops. They won’t even distinguish the Rochester cops from any other American cops.

They’ll just see the images and read the headlines: American cops handcuff and pepper-spray a nine-year-old kid.

Source: Business Insider India, February 1, 2021. That’s India, not America. Yep. The reprehensible conduct of these Rochester pigs has already been shown on video all around the world. And you want my respect.

Update:

The pigs who pepper-sprayed the 9-year-old girl have been suspended from duty.

Rochester, N.Y., police officers involved in restraining and pepper-spraying a 9-year-old girl last Friday were suspended Monday by order of Mayor Lovely Warren “at a minimum” until the conclusion of an internal police investigation.

“Unfortunately, state law and union contract prevents me from taking more immediate and serious action,” Warren said in a statement.

And, entirely as expected…

the Rochester cop union’s mob boss has reflexively ejected the usual diarrhea from his single alimentary opening, as coelenterates do when prodded:

Michael Mazzeo, president of the union representing Rochester police officers, defended the officers’ actions and said they were confronted with a difficult situation. “Those officers and those scenes, they broke no policy,” Mr. Mazzeo said at a news conference on Sunday. “There’s nothing that anyone can say they did that’s inappropriate.”

The New York Times, January 31, 2021

Ignorant, stupid fucker.

Common sea urchin. Coelenterates have no advanced brains, and no alimentary canal through which passes food. Instead, they have but an alimentary sac with a single orifice, through which they both consume food and excrete waste. Exactly like Trump and cop union presidents.
