Video shows police drawing gun on parents

A Phoenix couple is seeking $10 million from the city after a video showed police officers drawing a gun on them after their 4-year-old daughter allegedly stole a doll from a Family Dollar store.

Dravon Ames and fiancee Iesha Harper told CNN they didn't notice when their daughter walked out with a Barbie from the store last month. They've filed a notice of claim against the city for $10 million, which serves as a precursor to a lawsuit.
Soon after they left the store, Ames said the couple pulled into an apartment complex to drop their daughter off at a babysitter. Then an officer began banging against their window, yelling and threatening to kill them.
"Our hands are up, we're just trying not to get shot, trying to stay calm," Ames said. "He had a gun drawn."

1. There is something seriously wrong with police behavior in this country.

Even if it was an adult shoplifter, they don't have to start the conversation with guns drawn and threatening to shoot.
