Rochester Police Pepper-Sprayed 9-Year-Old Girl, Footage Shows


Rochester Police Department is releasing Bodycam footage. Shows a nine year old girl being pepper sprayed while handcuffed in the bank of a cop car. Speaking earlier today, Deputy police Chief Andre Anderson said the girl was detained after nine officers responded to a call about family trouble. He says the girl reported she wanted to kill not only herself, but her mother. Police chief Cynthia Harriet Sullivan told reporters. She's not going to say the Pepper. Spraying a child is OK, adding the department is going to work to ensure these things don't happen in the future. Rochester's mayor, Lovely Warren also comment on the incident, saying it's something that it's not something that really anybody should want to justify.
