So, get this. A six-year-old girl lives at home with her mother and father, who just so happens to be a former police officer. The ex-cop decided to take his daughter to the park to throw the ball around.
What happens next? Good times and laughter?
Not so much. In fact, what happened might just wind up scarring the little girl for life.
From Yahoo News:
In an incident caught on video, a former Colorado State Patrol trooper said he was handcuffed in front of his 6-year old daughter on a near-empty softball field Sunday by Brighton police officers enforcing social distancing rules. The department apologized Tuesday afternoon, calling the incident an “overreach by our police officers.”Trending:
Matt Mooney, 33, told ABC News he walked with his wife and daughter from their home to a nearby park Sunday to play softball.
Mooney said, “We’re just having a good time, not near anybody else. The next closest person is at least 15 feet away from me and my daughter at this point.”
Is that ridiculous or what? Here’s more…
Mooney said he told officers that he was familiar with the posted rules and believed he and his family were in compliance and practicing proper social distancing. He said he refused to provide his identification when officers asked for it because he had not broken any law.
And here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter…
