Police hold 11-year-old MI girl at gunpoint

Police hold 11-year-old girl at gunpoint and handcuff her

Meanwhile, the girl's mother can be heard in the background screaming, "That's my child!"

"On December 6th, my 11-year-old granddaughter was involved in an unfortunate incident with the Grand Rapids Police Department".

Honestie Hodges told WXMI she is scared of the Grand Rapids Police Department after being handcuffed and detained. Body cam footage of the arrest, which resulted in the young girl screaming in fear, has set off an internal investigation within the department.

Rahinsky said while he recognizes what's it's like in the heat of the moment and dealing with the unknown as a police officer, he could see the disconnect in how Honestie, as an 11-year-old, was treated.

Grand Rapids Deputy Chief Eric Payne attended the clergy meeting and said the clergy group has a right to make a requests with the Department of Justice. "As officers were setting up a perimeter, three females simultaneously exited the home, two adults and one 11-year-old juvenile". Snyder signed the bills yesterday, which, among other things, remove a provision that has granted immunity to officers who engage in sex with prostitutes.

A suspect being chased by a team of MI police officers last week was a potentially unsafe 40-year-old white woman wanted in connection with a stabbing. "We've got work to do as a profession, we've got work to do as an agency and we've got hard discussions to have as a community", Rahinsky said. "It goes to the heart of what we're trying to accomplish with [consulting firm] 21st Century Policing".

"But I don't believe this is one of them". However, he said, "that's not a defense of what we just saw".

The agreement means the two companies will analyse prismatic battery use across the automotive world, looking to lower their price and raising their performance and safety.

Honestie is an 11-year-old student at Stocking Elementary.

"I think we need to take a look at everything we do because if an officer can point to policy or can point to training or point to hiring and say, 'This is what I was told, this is how I was taught, this is consistent with practice, ' then we've got a problem".

Numerous people in the crowd at the city commission meeting say they are saddened by what they saw on the video of the incident.

Honestie said the arrest has now changed her outlook on law enforcement and on her own future.

Honestie said she is still rattled by what happened.

"They had police cars all over this street, they had police cars all along the alley", she said.

Responding to the public criticism, Mayor Rosalynn Bliss agreed the situation was painful. As she came forward, the officer had her put her hands on her head, then turn around and walk backward toward him.
