Dozens storm Phoenix council meeting in response to police actions

Dozens of residents on Wednesday demanded the Phoenix City Council withhold police funding until action is taken against the officers involved in a viral arrest video. The video allegedly shows Phoenix police officers pointing guns and yelling threats at Dravon Ames, 22, his pregnant fiancee, Iesha Harper, and their two young daughters.

Police are authorized to use force against people who aren't listening. I'll admit it does seem the police where too aggressive however we don't have footage of the whole incident and for that reason I can't pass judgment on these officers.

@Simone: There is no "allegedly" about it. I watched the video several times.
