Police Beat Teenage Black Girl for Riding Bike
In this video, police beat a teenage black girl for riding her bike on the sidewalk in Millville, PA. Apparently one of the officers, Carlos Drogo, maced himself while trying to take in the girl for riding her bike on the sidewalk and became angry and started punching her. Stevenson was riding her bicycle on the sidewalk of North 2nd Street when Drogo, in his patrol car, pulled alongside her. What happened next is now the subject of a lawsuit in Superior Court in which Stevenson alleges Drogo beat her while she was in custody. The officer denies the charges. Drogo resigned from the police force last fall and Stevenson has since been found guilty of resisting arrest. The city of Millville released two videos recorded on cameras in police cruisers at the scene.
