An incident involving a Washington D.C. woman and police has many people upset with police ethics once again. ABC News is reporting that two officers used extreme force to grab a woman and lift her off the ground. The video footage was posted on Twitter by a bystander.

At the start of the 42 second video, one of the officers is shown holding the woman by her arms, behind her back. Her feet are visibly off the ground and her chest is against a squad car. Viewers can hear the woman saying “I take care of these little girls.” and “I work right there.” ABC news also reports that the same officer holding the woman can be heard saying “Your a– is dust” and asking the woman if she “wants to go.” The other officer in the video does not really interact with the victim in the footage, but she does not stop the other officer either. What takes place before the incident is not shown. The bystander was able to get some very clear footage and posted it to the site. Take a look at the footage below.

In a second video, the woman identifies herself as a 32-year-old school teacher named Shadon. In this footage, she is clearly angered by the incident and is upset that she was questioned. Shadon claims that the officer thought she was prostituting and was offended and outraged because she says she was trying to help the locals of the area. This footage can be viewed below as well. The police of the city have been alerted and made aware of the footage. The Washington Post is also reporting on the matter and saying that the police department is investigating the situation. They claim to be making efforts to get in contact with the woman in the video to get more information about who she is and what happened.

Police brutality has continued to be an issue and a tough subject for people of the US to discuss. Incidents like the one shown are unfortunately happening every day. The people being targeted are o longer willing to let the issues stand and are voicing their opinions now more than ever. As they continue to use social media and other ways to do so, one can only hope that positive changes will be made.
