Still a child, guys. Come on.

The whole situation is a disaster, but absolutely none of it should be on the child.

We can do better.

That said, I donít envy any police officerís job.

From my understanding, the arrest was not really an arrest. In Florida we call it the Baker Act process. That young girl has issues and it was apparent in the video. The officers knew what they were dealing with before they arrived on scene. It took six cops to detain a 9 year old girl and than pepper sprayer while she was detained in the back of the car. Sorry, this is poor police work and they should lose their job. With this type of situation, a social worker should be involved especially a minor that has some mental issues. JMO

The days of covering it up are over. At least where video is involved.

I'd say it's a "good shoot", but I do agree with others that the mom should have got a shot too and have some kind of penalty for her behavior too.

Not her "fault", but it's still her reaction that deserves a response. Those cops didn't do nuthin' to deserve the treatment they got from her. This is not a 2, 3, 4, or 5 year old... she was NINE and should know that you shouldn't be bucking authority like that.

Anybody notice the interior of that squad car? Hard plastic rear seats? Not something you find in a Beverly Hills cop car. I'm guessing these cops deal with crap like this everyday, and probably much worse.

I can hardly wait for the police to get out of the mental health business and let counselors who are trained in these sort of things handle the situation. The police are transactional problem solvers, solve the problem, in this case, her not wanting to move her feet inside of the car so they can close the door and move on. I think it's unfair to have the police deal with these types of things. Let DSS handle these types of situations with properly trained and unarmed individuals.

It was pepper spray,it wears off life goes on,people calling for health care workers to replace police,healthcare workers deal with the mind and are hardly in a position to deal with the violence.

What happens when health care workers become first responders and end up getting shot and stabbed?

I guess some folks just think we have enough of them that some are expendable.

They couldn't shut the doors because they couldn't get her legs inside. I'm sure they would have preferred to do that.

Unfortunately I think it may just have to come down to this before some people will start thinking beyond cops bad. But with that people in general will also need to change. Kids going nutty donít call 911, better have yourself the number for emergency mental care facilities. No I donít think it should fall on a 911 operator to decide who should be going g to a call. Get fed misinformation, send wrong people, bad things happen then 911 will be to blame. For anyone screaming the police need to change that better wake up and see that people need to change. I know I know thatís too hard for people, just make everyone else change to my wants and needs.

A police officer in this day and age doesn't stand a chance. It would not matter how they handled it, at the end of the day they will be wrong, period! As far as I am concerned the whole thing was probably a setup to begin with. I mean the police were called to the scene for a family matter. Now the mother is suing the police department! Get it?

Next time, ignore the d**m call and let it play out without intervention. Then just maybe the real problem will solve itself!

Maybe you just don't know her mother well enough.

I'm actually surprised to see that out of you.

Oh boo hoo. Pepper sprayed a 9 year old. That was cuffed and crying for her dad.

At a minimum he should lose his job. Some time in jail to think about his actions wouldn't hurt either.

A setup? Really? Pretty crappy setup with a crying kid in handcuffs.

Then we'll give them police backup. But clearly someone needed some adult supervision that day.

Did you watch the video?

They did it because they were annoyed, not in danger.

It's a bad shot.
