DAVENPORT (KMOV) – Surveillance cameras capture a shoplifter being beaten by officers as her one year old sits nearby.
The video shows as a woman is beaten by police during questioning in an office in Davenport, Iowa.
The woman’s one year old daughter is quickly taken by a store employee as the beating continues.
The woman admitted that she did bite an officer as a means of defense. Furthermore, she admitted she was guilty of shoplifting.
However, she claims a red flag should have been raised after the officers made a suggestive remark about her boyfriend.
The woman claimed police recognized the name of her boyfriend, an African-American Community Activist, and told her things were about to get ugly.
The department did suspend the officers; however, they are now back on the job.
