  • Phoenix PD releases store video showing couple and their kids stealing from store after they file $10 million lawsuit claiming cops acted inappropiately

    Phoenix PD has now released video showing what led up to the May 27th arrest of two suspects who are suing the city of Phoenix for $10 million claiming their civil rights had been violent. The local and national media are trying to paint the couple identified as Dravon Ames and Iesha Harper as innocent people who did nothing wrong. The couple claims that Phoenix PD officers were the aggressors and had violated their civil rights and acted inappropriately. A video released by Phoenix PD seems to indicate that couple did bring their children into a store and were seen on camera stealing items.

    One thing not being reported by the media is that Rally For Enforcement has stated its support of the officers as well as other pro-police supporters.

    Phoenix PD released a fact sheet on the incident which took place on May 27th. It was as follows:

    CURRENT FACT SHEET SUMMARY OF PHOENIX POLICE RESPONSE TO SHOPLIFTING INCIDENT RESULTING IN OFFICERS BEING REMOVED FROM THE STREET AND ASSIGNED TO DESK DUTY

    Date: May 27, 2019 at approximately 11:17 a.m.
    Location: 1600 N. 36th Street

    -On May 27, Phoenix Police received a call for assistance from the store manager to report a shoplifting inside the store.

    -During the investigation the store manager alerted the officer to a second shoplifting in progress and the people from that incident were now getting into a vehicle in the parking lot.

    -As the officer approached the vehicle, he observed female #1 drop an item before getting in the car, then the vehicle quickly reversed and drove away.

    -Moments later the vehicle stopped at McDowell Road, female #1 exited the vehicle and the car again drove away. The officer learned the female had three misdemeanor warrants for her arrest and was booked for the outstanding warrants.

    -The vehicle was located a short distance away and stopped in an apartment complex about a mile away. Officers arrested the male driver and a second female.

    -The male driver told an officer he shoplifted a package of underwear from the store and threw them out the window, and in addition he was driving on a suspended license.

    -Female individual #2 told an officer that her aunt (female #1) and child went into the store together. Female #2 also said she saw her child walk out of the store with a doll and she believed they had stolen it because they didn’t have any money. Also, the female said she heard the officer in the parking lot tell the driver to stop the car several times, but he didn’t.

    -The store manager declined to prosecute, so no one was arrested for shoplifting.

    -On June 11, Phoenix Police was made aware of video taken by residents at the apartment complex showing extremely offensive and unprofessional language and actions by officers during the arrests. That same day, Police Chief Jeri Williams requested the officers be removed from the street and assigned to desk duty while an investigation takes place.

    -On June 14, the Police Department provided to the media the police report of the original call to the local business on May 27, 2019. On the same day, Chief Williams shared a videotaped message with the community expressing how disturbing the video was, her expectations of employees, the need to give due diligence for the investigation and her support of the men and women of the department who faithfully protect and serve the community.”

    There are now reports that Ames is facing charges from a 2018 incident where he assaulted a Tempe PD officer. We will try to post more about this but the latest info has been posted to Rally For Law Enforcement’s Facebook page.

Tomorrow the community as a whole has a chance to stand up for it and finally give the anti-cop terrorists their walking papers. We will stand up to help ensure both the community and our police officers are kept safe,” Rosen said.

    Rally For L.E. is asking for those that attend the counter-protest to bring Thin Blue Line and American flags as well as signs that support the police. It’s being suggested that the counter-protest be kept peaceful and those that are armed follow all state laws.

    After the horrible events in Dallas where 5 police officers were killed during an anti-police protest, Rally For L.E.’s founder Nohl Rosen has called for armed members to stand watch over police stations and police officers nationwide in an effort to keep our law enforcement safe.

    “We need to ensure that our police officers are able to do their jobs safely and also make it home to their families as well. There’s clearly a war that’s been declared on police officers in this country and armed citizens need to stand with the members of law enforcement to end it. Rally For L.E. will have the backs of our nation’s police officers,” Rosen said.

    Rally For L.E. is also calling for a nationwide rally in support of law enforcement to show that there are citizens that appreciate the service the men and women in blue provide to us everyday. They deserve our support and our respect. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the police officers that have been killed in Dallas as well as to the Dallas Police Department.
