Who You Gonna Call?

Who You Gonna Call?

Video of the incident went viral after it was posted to Facebook on Wednesday night.

Mayor Betsy Price and Police Chief Joel Fitzgerald pledged to fully investigate a police officer's arrest of a woman and two of her daughters after she had called police to report the assault of her son.

Then Craig responds by saying how she raises her son is immaterial and that it did not give anyone the right to harm him.

In response, the officer asks, "Why don't you teach your son not to litter?".

The officer then quickly changed his focus to Craig, handcuffing her on the ground. "You don't have the right to grab him, choke him".

"Your phone is evidence", the officer replies, as another scuffle ensues and the phone drops to the ground.

As Craig walked toward the officer, her daughter tried to calm her mother as the policeman grabed the 15-year-old from behind.

Family members who spoke with WFAA identified the mother as 46-year-old Jacqueline Craig and the daughter as 19-year old Brea Hymond. They said that internal affairs has begun an investigation and two of three women captured on video being taken into custody have been interviewed.

Fort Worth police said Thursday that officers responding to an "investigation call" found Vandewege in front of his house "crouched down with his face in his hands".

Vandewege had called 911 to report finding his wife and son dead in a bed when he arrived home.

He also tells them that he used to like Manveer a lot but he doesn't anymore after he made baseless comments about him. While everyone is trying to calm them down, Bigg Boss has something special planned, and it's the flawless solution.

He also said the alleged assault on a 7-year-old should have been the officer's priority, and that case is still under investigation.

"He instigated that whole incident by being condescending to the woman about her son", Alexander said.

He said the neighbor admitted to the officer that he grabbed the boy because he defied his order not to litter in his yard.

Craig was charged with resisting arrest (for an unnamed crime) and failure to identify.

The video shows the officer talking to both the man who allegedly assaulted Craig's son and then Craig.

After further heated exchange the officer tells Craig: "If you keep yelling at me, you're going to piss me off and I'm going to take you to jail".

"It made me feel less of a parent - that I couldn't protect him when he needed it", she said during the press conference as she broke into tears.

The officer, pretending that he had not just insinuated that the white man had a right to assault her child, asks, "Why are you yelling?" A police report says he told the officer who stopped him, "It's been a long week, my wife and kid were murdered in Texas", the station reported.

"This incident and countless others like them demonstrate that for people of color, showing anything less than absolute deference to police officers - regardless of the circumstances - can have unjust and often tragic consequences, " executive director Terri Burke said.

"If a white mother had called police about their son being choked, I guarantee that the officer would not have bypassed the suspect and arrested the mother".
