Police weird actions undergoes criticism all over the world
Police is becoming a nuisance in so many parts of the world and people are busy questioning their integrity in saving lives and properties.
Recently the actions of police brutality on some youths in Nigeria is
creating so much tension in the police force while a sect of the police have been accused of extorting money from innocent people and other vices.
Some people still believe though there might be some bad eggs in the unit, the police force needs to be reformed to prevent it from carrying out extra judicious activities.
Meanwhile on Thursday another incident was recorded where an 11-year-old girl at gunpoint was handcuffed and put in the back of a cruiser by Grand Rapids police, Michigan.
According to reports, the girl was leaving her Grand Rapids home to a store when police came to her home looking for the girl’s 40-year-old aunt, who was suspected of stabbing a relative nearby but was not found.
Surprisingly Grand Rapids police detained the girl and two other women, including the girl’s mother, as they exited the house. Officers ordered the 11-year old to come down from the porch with her hands up as reported by the girl’s mother. This is brutality of the highest order!
“The whole time they are telling her to come down, I’m telling them, ‘She’s 11 years old. That’s my daughter. Don’t cuff her,” these were the words of the girl’s mother.
So sad! the little girl has been forced to live in fear as she shares her own side of the story with a television station.
“It made me feel scared and it made me feel like I did something wrong. I’m afraid to open or go near my back door because of what happened.”
Obviously the police and its various departments needs total reformation to serve people better since the police was meant to be our friend.
