Brittney Gilliam was on a girls’ trip with her nieces, sister, and daughter to get their nails done Sunday morning when suddenly, in a parking lot, they were surrounded by white policemen point guns at them, and rushing at them, before slamming them to the ground.
The officers, according to a bystander and Gilliam’s lawyer, had their guns drawn and rushing at the innocent Black girls. They were forced to lay face down while handcuffing them, police and the family said.
Video of the scene taken by the bystander and obtained by NBC Denver affiliate KUSA shows the four girls in the group on the ground, some of them handcuffed, crying, and screaming as officers surround them with their guns drawn.
In the aftermath of George Floyd, and after numerous protest, it appears that the Police is back at it again.. the wanton harassment and intimidation of African Americans.
In the video, one of the girls can be heard crying, “I want my mother,” as her hands are restrained behind her.
“Can I have my sister next to me?” another in the group who was restrained says. The girls are 6 to 17 years old, KUSA reported.
“We have sued the Aurora police over the years dozens and dozens of times for this exact same type of behavior,” Lane said of his civil rights firm, Killmer, Lane, and Newman. “They are there to occupy and intimidate. They are not there to serve and protect.”
