Rochester Police published two body-camera videos Sunday of officers controlling and coated with what authorities called a compound"irritant." The footage showed officers scolding the woman, who had been crying for her daddy.
A total of nine officers and managers responded to the record of"household difficulty" on Friday. The woman can be observed from the body-camera movies from officers in the scene crying frantically for her dad as the officers attempt to control her.
The authorities body camera video reveals several police cars and officials on the snowy landscape. After being controlled on the floor, the woman, wearing flowered leggings and a black sweatshirt, inquires,"Could you please get the snow from me? It is cold."
The Democrat and Chronicle reported prior to the launch of these movies, Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren expressed her concern for the"kid that was harmed in this episode that occurred on Friday."
"I've a 10-year-old kid, so she is a kid, she is a baby. This movie, as a mom, isn't whatever that you need to view," Warren went on to state.
"What occurred Friday was simply dreadful, and has outraged all our neighborhood," Warren said in a statement. "Regrettably, state law and marriage contract prevents me from accepting more serious and immediate action."
She also called the episode"deeply troubling and totally unacceptable."

"There isn't any possible explanation for the Rochester authorities to subject a 9-year-old to pepper spray, interval," NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman said Monday.
"To see these horrible footage of this mistreatment of a small woman, no less, was just unreal. We must remember who we are referring to this," Brouk mentioned through a movie news conference. "That is a kid. She is in school."
"She suggested she wished to kill herself and she wished to kill her mother," he explained.
Officers attempted to force the woman to a patrol car but she pulled away and kicked them. In a statement Saturday, the police department stated this activity"took" an officer to take the woman to the floor.
Police said the woman disobeyed orders to place her toes in the vehicle. An officer was subsequently"required" to squirt an"irritant" from the handcuffed woman's face, the section said Saturday.
In Sunday's press conference, Police Chief Cynthia Herriott-Sullivan explained the irritant as pepper spray. She declined to shield the officers' actions.
"I am not going to stand here and tell you for a 9-year-old to need to become pepper-sprayed is OK. It is not," Herriott-Sullivan explained. "I really don't find as who we are as a section, and we are likely to do the job we must do in order to make sure that these types of things do not occur."
Police said the woman was finally taken to Rochester General Hospital,"where she obtained the care and services she desired," and was released to her loved ones.
