Phoenix Cops Caught Threatening To Murder Black Couple After Their 4-Year-Old Took A Barbie From The Dollar Store

In a shocking new video from May 29, police officers from Phoenix, Arizona were caught threatening to shoot a black couple in the head after their 4-year-old daughter walked out of a dollar store with a Barbie doll they hadn’t paid for — without the parents’ knowledge.

After the girl walked out of the store, police were called to the scene, according to KSAZ-TV.

“It was crazy, very scary over a dollar store,” said mother Iesha Harper. “I would have bought that doll had I knew.”

The disturbing video shows the police officers approaching the family’s car with their guns drawn. And instead of approaching the scene calmly, they began by threatening to kill the family while the woman was holding her daughter in her arms.

“Get your f*cking hands up!” one officer screams over and over. “I”m going to put a f*cking cap right in your f*cking head! Get your f*cking hands up! Who the f*ck is that man?”

Harper tells officers she cannot open the door because it doesn’t work properly and she is holding her children, and one of them threatens to shoot her.

“You’re going to f*cking get shot!” he shouts, pointing a gun at the vehicle. “Are you f*cking deaf? Get out the f*cking car!”

The woman then begged the officer to put the gun down and not point it at her children. He responds by saying “I don’t give a sh*t!”

“I can’t put my hands up,” Harper sobs. “I have a f*cking baby in my hands. I can’t, I’m pregnant. Officer, he’s overdoing sh*t. He’s overdoing it.”

Another officer escorts the father from the car to a police cruiser, where he roughly places him in handcuffs.

“Feet, spread your feet!” the officer barks. “When I tell you to do something, you f*cking do it.”

The man, Dravon Ames, apologizes with his feet spread, as the officers twists his hands behind his back, and the officer asks what they did wrong.

“I didn’t do anything, sir,” Ames insists.

The other officer points his weapon inches away from Harper’s face, and waves it around as he continues barking at her.

“I tell you to put your f*cking hands up, you put your hands up,” he shouts.

The woman desperately tries to explain that she can’t put her daughter down because she’s a baby.

“Attacking a lady, man?” a bystander recording the incident says. “Really?”

The officers order Harper to set her child down in the parking lot, but she says the girl is a baby and cannot walk yet.

“He just seemed like he was trigger happy,” Ames said afterward. “He wanted to shoot someone that day.”

The family is planning a $10 million civil rights lawsuit against the city.

Their attorney said the officers dislocated the 1-year-old’s arm in the incident, which resulted in no charges, and caused Ames to miss a day of work because they impounded his car.

Their claim says the store didn’t report the theft, but officers instead responded based on allegations from an anonymous witness.
