If y'all thought body cameras were gonna calm these fools, I meant police officers, down then you got another thing coming...
A Texas cop in San Antonio was caught on video repeatedly punching a 14-year-old girl and using excessive force during an arrest that took place on Saturday, because you know, the girl was just too powerful and mighty for the officer to detain appropriately and moderately.
The incident happened outside of an event center where authorities say officers were called about men fighting at a quinceañera, celebrating a girl's 15th birthday.
Mayor Ivy Taylor said the video "is hard to watch and listen to," and indicated the police department is reviewing the body camera footage to determine what took place.
In the video the girl appears to move toward the officer (or does she?) before he hits her for the first time. He then strikes her again, causing her to fall into people standing nearby. He appears to hit her a third time before he and other officers arrest her.
The teen's lawyer Artessia House told the San Antonio News-Express that the video shows an officer hitting her client "clear as day."
An incident report described the tense scene outside the event center, with multiple people fighting and onlookers angered by the police response, with many "on the verge of interfering."
The video also captures the screams of the girl's mother shouting, "No! No! No! No! Let her go!" during the arrest.
The eighth-grader was arrested on a charge of assaulting a public servant, and was taken to a juvenile detention center where she was released on Monday.
