Arrest Video Sparks Outrage over how Fort Worth Officer detained Woman and Her Daughter..Now on Restricted Duty

FORT WORTH, Texas – Activists are planning to rally Thursday evening because of a video that shows a Fort Worth officer arresting a woman who called him for help.

The video was posted on Facebook Wednesday evening. It shows a woman named Jacqueline Craig explaining to an officer that she called police because a man had tried to choke her young son for littering.

“My son is 7 years old. You don’t have the right to grab him, choke him for no paper that he threw. What you should have done because we have been living here for years… you could have came to me. You don’t put your hands on my son,” Craig tells the officer.

“Why don’t you teach your son not to litter?” the officer replies.

“He can’t prove to me that my son littered. But it doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t. He didn’t have to put his hands on him,” Craig says.

“Why not?” the officer asks
