Two Wisconsin police officers were caught on video verbally accosting a mother for letting her daughter play at a neighbor’s home during the states COVID-19 shutdown, accusing her of “violating an order” by the state.
The incident, caught on video by the mom’s cell phone, shows the officers immediately – and aggressively – demanding to know if she’s aware of the state’s stay-at-home order.
The footage shows the first officer, a male, repeatedly interrupting the woman and sarcastically responding to her answers.
“Why are you here?” the mother asked in the video.
“Because your daughter is going to play at other people’s homes and you’re allowing it to happen,” the officer responded.
“Stop having your kid go by other people’s homes,” he then demanded.
The female police officer then repeatedly demanded the woman give her middle initial and last name so she could put it in an official record, which the mother refused to do.
“That’ll be documented too, that you’re uncooperative,” the female cop adds.
