Liberals are losing their minds right now over footage of a 13-year-old black girl that was punched and arrested by officers.
The video that went viral had a limited view, showing only the shots taken by police.
Phoenix Police say the full story is not being told, and they released bodycam footage to prove it.
The Real Story
The initial video that was released was taken by an onlooker.
That video did not capture the initial confrontation with the girl, nor did it capture a key moment that was in obstructed view from the original video.
Officers were responding to a report of a stolen vehicle spotted with several people inside.
As police were dealing with the suspects, a crowd started to form.
Among that crowd was a full-figured 13-year-old girl that started to mouth off at police.
She was repeatedly told to stay back. The officer even told her that she could watch, but they all needed to keep their distance.
The initial video from above shows the girl running toward the office, then you see the officer punching her, putting her on the ground, and arresting her…
Here is an angle of the incident from above. You see the 13yo jog towards the sidewalk and then the officer wraps her up, punching her as other officers bring her to the ground. Phoenix PD says they will be releasing a statement later today. #fox10phoenix pic.twitter.com/drzKyW61sE

What you do not see is a key moment that occurred before that girl came back into view.
Where the initial footage cuts off, you can see the officer initially trying to restrain the girl, then the girl punches the office in the face, which is when the officer struck back.
That girl could have been taken down and arrested for merely rushing the offices in that situation, but the fact that she swung and hit the office, not to mention how aggressive she was being with the officers before the confrontation, the officers were actually restrained.
The fact that this girl is a minor is of no importance here considering her actions.
You come at a cop like that, you better expect that there will be repercussions.
That girl had no right at all to rush those officers, period.
Additionally, here is a local news report on what happened.
What I really want you to pay attention to is the dramatics from the aunt, how innocent the girl tries to portray herself, and how the station used the obstructed view to say the girl was doing nothing wrong, when the bodycam footage has her dropping f-bombs on the cops and clearly shows her rushing an officer…
The way that entire story was framed was to make the officers look bad and draw sympathy for the girl, which is utterly ridiculous, at least in my opinion.
Here are a couple of questions… why not ask the aunt why she even allowed the girl to get mixed up in the initial arrest and why does she have a mouth that would make a truck driver blush?
Why was she disrespecting the police? Was it for this exact moment? To antagonize the police, get them to hit her in the hopes of a lawsuit? Because that is what it seems like to me.
Now, Democrats are going to jump all over this, but the police nothing wrong here.
Let’s hear what you guys think… were the cops too aggressive or were their actions justified?
