11-year-old tased: Video shows Cincinnati cop who used stun gun on girl commenting about “black community” – CBS News

CINCINNATI — A Cincinnati police officer who used a stun gun on an 11-year-old black girl accused of shoplifting told her that actions like hers hurts the “community,” according to body camera footage of the arrest. “You know, sweetheart, this is why there’s no grocery stores in the black community,” said Officer Kevin Brown on a comment caught by his body camera, CBS affiliate WKRC-TV reported.

The comment resulted in an internal investigation that found that Brown – who is also black – violated department policies. It marks the second time Brown has been accused of making inappropriate comments while on duty, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer, which said he was previously written up for using a homophobic slur in reference to a domestic violence victim.

Body camera footage of the Aug. 6 arrest of the 11-year-old shows her crying after Brown deploys his stun gun.
