The term shocking is oft used to describe surprising or eye-popping viral videos. There may be no more ‘shocking’ videos than these of Phoenix police pulling guns on a young black family in a parking lot over the alleged shoplifting of a 99-cent Barbie-like doll from a dollar store.

On May 27, Dravon Ames, 22, his pregnant fiancée Iesha Harper, 24, and their daughters, Island, 4 and 1-year-old London, were held at gunpoint by several screaming Phoenix police officers. Police were responding to an anonymous caller about a possible shoplifting incident of a dollar store Barbie doll. Court documents show that the dollar store did not call for police. With guns drawn, and screaming orders rife with foul language, cops surrounded the family at their car, pulled guns, and threatened to kill them.

One of the officers has been identified as Christopher Meyer.

You can watch the video of the incident below:

The full video released by the family’s lawyers shows more of the incident:

The police were either not wearing body cameras or had them shut off, and did not file a report, a court document states.

“This is everything that’s wrong with (law enforcement) today,” AZ State Senator Martín Quezada tweeted, adding the “community deserves better than this type of inexcusable and unjustifiable rage and abuse of power from the Phoenix police.”

"My hands are up! My hands are up!" 22yo Dravon Ames says as a Phoenix police officer yells to "get your fucking hands up." The same officer later says "You're gonna fucking get shot!"

Ames says the officers stopped him after his child walked out of a Dollar Store with a doll.

There are a number of videos from various angles. In one, officers can be heard screaming and cursing at the couple in front of their children to “put your f*****g hands up.” A cop is seen pointing a gun at the car, with children inside, while another cop yells, “You’re gonna f*****g get shot!”

An officer is seen slamming Ames’ face against a cruiser and kicks his legs and punches him in the back while he’s pinned to the police car. “When I tell you to do something, you f*****g do it,” the cop yells at Ames a number of times. Ames says he’s com lying and is seen in the video complying. The other officer is seen trying to snatch Harper’s baby out of her arms. He screams at her to put her hands up while she’s holding her baby. Then screams at her to put the baby down on the pavement.

Harper said that a cop told her he could have “shot you in front of your fuc*ing kids” as she was arrested, handcuffed and placed inside a police cruiser.

The chilling threat that can be heard on the video that has stunned people the most from police called to a possible shoplifting incident, is this: “I’m gonna put a cap right in your f*****g head!”

Phoenix police refuse to name the officers, but in the complaint obtained by Heavy, which can be read in full here and below, it’s believed the cop that threatened to kill Ames is named Myer, Meyer or Meyers.

Late Friday afternoon, police issued a statement. They claim that the couple had stolen underwear from the dollar store and say that they “quickly” drove away and were pursued. The couple told police about the doll, police admit in the statement. But police also claim “the man,” presumably Ames, threw a pair of “stolen” underwear out of the car window. Police also admit they did not believe the family was armed. They said that since the dollar store wasn’t interested in prosecuting the couple, no charges were filed. But Ames, police allege, was driving with a suspended license and that led to his car being impounded. Police described the entire incident, the violent arrest and threats to shoot the family, as, “a man and woman in the car were taken into custody and detained.”

It’s reported that one of the officers involved is on desk duty.

The full statement is below.

Then Friday night, Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams posted a video statement to Facebook. She spoke about her officers “making contact” with the couple. She said, “like you, I’m disturbed by the language and action of our officer,” saying the incident is “not representative of the majority” of the police department.

The full minute-long video is below.

Heavy obtained a police report titled ‘shoplifting excessive force incident report.” It’s says it’s a “redacted” report, but it is not redacted; it has blank spaces for identifying information.

The relevant portion is written by officer Christopher Meyer.

... Phoenix police pulling guns on a young black family in a parking lot over the alleged shoplifting of a 99-cent Barbie-like doll from a dollar store.

A new low for cops - they "feared for their lives" over a Barbie Doll.

They wet themselves in fear from 10-pound Chihuahuas, cell phones, walking canes, spoons - why are pusillanimous pricks like these poltroons cops in the first place if they are so effing chicken-shit cowards?

Police were responding to an anonymous caller about a possible shoplifting incident of a dollar store Barbie doll. Court documents show that the dollar store did not call for police.

Liar. Who -- other than you -- said they "feared for their lives"?

The felonious couple, and their felonious daughter being taught a life of crime, shoplifted from a store. They got caught. Too bad.

They want to be treated nice? Fine. Don't break the law.

The cops themselves said it.

Viral Video Proves Phoenix Police Lied in Official Incident Report

On Saturday, ABC15 reported that more details about the incident had surfaced. During the encounter, the arresting cops turned off their dash and body cameras, and claimed they “feared for their lives” that the mother would kill them.

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

You're still lying.

Listen to your own video. On it, the ABC15 reporter (not "the cops themselves") cites the police report as reading, "I feared that she was hiding something or was reaching for a weapon".

Shocking Video of Phoenix Cops Holding Black Family at Gunpoint Over $1 Doll

Hmmmm. Why is it that when the supposed victim is black they're identified as black, but when they're the perpetrators their race is never mentioned?

Why is their race even an issue here? Are the cops being accused of racism? Did the cops behave this way only because the perps were black? Is heavy.com trying to start a race war?
