That was an awful situation. The video is very disturbing.
One thing I would like to say though is that if you look at the faces of those cops, you do not see them enjoying that experience. The two males
definately made a mistake going in there.
From the vid I can give a possible suggestion as to why the two males were in that room.
For an alternative veiwpoint first look at this clip
If the two females were not able to physically control the female and they have not yet determined that the female is unarmed IE a threat to other
police officers or herself they would have asked for assistance.
The fault here is that there was not enough female police officers available to deal with this situation and how the first officer responding to the
victim in the first place.
What made it worse was that she was the victim and not a perp....escalating her resistance to any compliance that is mandatory for safety reasons.
These people have to go home to there family's too, not all cops are bad but this video is a good example of how a bad cop can drag a whole group
into a worse situation.
They handled this incorrectly.
From the story I would believe that she did ask for her sisters licence back and the first cop to deal with her was a jerk about. Escalation from
verbal disinterest in her handing over her sisters licence to physical hostility in the holding cell.
