A Baltimore woman caught the PD in their own lie
Kianga Mwamba was driving home earlier this year–March 30 to be exact–when a nearby confrontation between an officer and a civilian peaked her interest. According to Mwamba, the police were kicking and using excessive force to arrest the man they were trying to take into custody, 27-year old Cordell Bruce, and she began to record the incident. About halfway through the video clip, which you can see above, a police officer notices Mwamba recording them and initially directs her to keep it moving. Mwamba doesn’t immediately react to the officer’s suggestion, which prompted the officer to walk up to Mwamba’s car and tell her to pull her car over, which is where things get dicey.
Mwamba asks repeatedly, “You telling me I can’t record?” before agreeing to park her car. Quite abruptly, Mwamba is cut off–verbally–and an officer is demanding that she get out of her car. Mwamba was then allegedly dragged out of the car, which explains the commotion that immediately follows the officer’s demands in the video. She can be heard screaming, “He’s burning me. He’s burning me,” and what sounds like a taser being used on her immediately follows that. Shortly after, a male officer is heard calling Mwamba a “dumb b*tch,” and Mwamba was soon arrested for trying to run over an officer–charges that were eventually dropped.
When authorities returned Mwamba’s phone to her, the video she took had “disappeared”, but she was able to recover it thanks to her Cloud account, and she is seeking $7 million in damages in a lawsuit that she’s brought upon the Baltimore City Police Department.
