Man holding baby arrested by cops roughly

.

An Applebee’s patron was tackled to the floor while holding a baby and then beaten by Wisconsin police officers as the real suspects of a hit-and-run hid in the bathroom in a horrific case of mistaken identity.

Kenosha police officers were searching for the suspects involved in a serious crash on July 20 when witnesses to the crash said that they saw two black men and a woman carrying a child bolt down the road into a nearby Applebee’s, according to WISN 12 News.

“(Police) came in and asked (the family) to show them what car they came in, so they could verify if they were in the car accident or not,” Jennifer Harris, the manager working at Applebee’s that night told the outlet.

A separate unnamed employee informed officers of a man and woman with a child eating at a table at the restaurant when they approached them for questioning.

“The guy didn’t want to comply, he had his baby in his arms. (The officers) kept telling him he’s not under arrest, but he’s detained, and needed to answer this question,” Harris said.

“He was trying to say he needed to change his son’s diaper. He tried to go the other way, they tackled him into a wall and the baby hit its head on the wall.”

Police are seen trying to rip the baby from the man's arms after he was tackled to the ground with the child.

Harris told the outlet that the officers tackled the man and began ripping the baby out of his arms as he was on the ground.

One officer is seen wailing punches down on the man and yelling for him to “put his hand behind his back,” the video shows.

“It’s just sad. I just felt bad for the baby, that it had to go through that traumatic event,” Harris told the outlet as she held back tears.

After the child was taken away, officers' pinned him to the floor.

Though police later said the couple had nothing to do with the hit-and-run, the man tackled in the restaurant was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting and obstructing an officer.

The woman he was with was also arrested on the same charges and slapped with possession of marijuana as well, according to the outlet.

After the horrifying ordeal, police found the actual suspects taking refuge in the bathroom and they were arrested and charged.

Jennifer Harris had been employed by Applebee's for close to 12 years before being fired following the incident.

“The second he said he wanted to enjoy his food and for them to go away, the officers should have left him alone,” Hal Klibowitz, an employee working that night, told the outlet.

Harris — who has worked at the Applebee’s for about 12 years — was also fired by the establishment, with the eatery blaming her for sharing the video online and with news outlets.

Representing Harris for wrongful termination is Attorney William Sulton, who said they gave Applebee’s the opportunity to reinstate her before they pursued legal action.

The restaurant chain refused.

Community activists protested outside the Kenosha Safety Building on Wednesday — demanding the department to be transparent with their investigation into the officers’ actions.

“Why did the cops feel they needed that level of force with a baby in his arms,” Tanya McLean, the executive director of Leaders of Kenosha, questioned while speaking at the protest.

“What is it that makes you feel as if you need to be so overly aggressive, so confrontational, like you’re ready for a fight?”

An internal “review” is underway to determine if the officers’ use of force was “more robust than what the state requires,” the department shared in a statement to the outlet.

“We were aware of the incident immediately as a result of that process and started a review of it,” the statement read.

“Currently it is under investigation. The investigation when complete will be comprehensive and dictate whether the officers acted appropriately or not and if any disciplinary action or additional training is deemed necessary.”

Maybe it was a fuck up but he clearly did his kid no favors by behaving that way. Kept him in harms way because of his ego.

He in fact does not have to answer their question.

That’s soooo 2019 bro… in case you haven’t noticed, things have changed a lot on the last few years.

That baby had already been through enough having to sit in an Applebees with that crowd.

Ask minneapolis how birning down a police station worked out for them. Police force is under staffed 50% , record high unchecked crime.

Poor people always hate the police, they harass you for expired tags and warrants, just a huge hassle.

Im standing in central texas. I still see everyone flying their thin blue line flags, and people on this site unironically saying stupid shit like “just comply”.
While also saying they “will not comply”.

JK man, well played brother.

I changed my tune when my QBs dad was working off duty at a Dillards and a 19 year old stole some jeans, he chased him outside got to an intersection, the kid turned around and shot him in the chin with a stolen Glock 45(caliber not model). It made me look at things differently and it changed his life forever over a pair of fn jeans, the kid had no record just a dumbass.

Most of the time we have no idea what they’ve seen or experienced and when I would ride around and smoke or whatever I used to get furious when a cop would get behind me, but it was because I was doing things not because they just wanted to mess with me.

I have ran into some cunts, but for $45k and little training they deal with a lot of shit and most in my neighborhood or those I know are just dudes. IMO.

You see that black guy in the video? He’s gonna come into a boatload of money soon!!!

So the police receive info that 2 blacks one carrying a baby ran from the crash into the restaurant. They run in & see 2 blacks & a baby. The one black with the baby doesn’t want to cooperate, so the cops are thinking they have the suspect. But wait, the real suspects are hiding in the bathroom. Now the black who didn’t cooperate hit the ghetto lottery, either by chance or on purpose.
