Title: Cops Violently Assault Grandma In Her Home After Granddaughter Cursed at Police

Baltimore, MD — Nothing highlights the lack of training, the irrational fear, and brutal nature of police officers quite like videos of them beating elderly women. While this may sound shocking, it happens and is caught on video far too often to be an “isolated incident.” In fact, TFTP just reported on an elderly grandmother being attacked and tasered in her own home by cops after she demanded a warrant before they entered her home, and now, it’s happened again. 

Family members are speaking out after infuriating and disturbing video surfaced showing 76-year-old Rena Mellerson being dragged from her home and violently assaulted outside. According to WBAL, police were at Mellerson’s home last Friday in search of her granddaughter Cierra Floyd on charges of disorderly conduct.

Police say the charge of disorderly conduct came after Floyd allegedly cursed at officers earlier that day. TFTP would like to take this time to remind our readers that cursing at police officers is protected under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution—so is flipping them off. In fact, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled, in City of Houston v. Hill, that police must tolerate even more abusive speech than an average citizen—which certainly includes a young woman cursing at them. The court concluded that “in the face of verbal challenges to police action, officers and municipalities must respond with restraint,” and added that, “the First Amendment protects a significant amount of verbal criticism and challenge directed at police officers.”

Apparently, the cops who went to Mellerson’s home on Friday couldn’t have cared less about the oaths they swore to uphold the Constitution.

Police claim that when they entered Mellerson’s home to arrest her granddaughter for practicing her first amendment that Mellerson “interfered” in Floyd’s arrest. They also claimed Floyd “moved towards an officer in an aggressive manner” which forced them to use pepper spray and tasers inside the home.

As the video shows, Mellerson doesn’t appear aggressive at all. In fact, the elderly woman is peacefully walking out of her home when an angry cop runs up on the scene, violently grabs her and slams her to the ground. An attack like this could have proven fatal for someone as old as Mellerson. Luckily she survived but her daughter says this 76-year-old woman, whose never had so much as a speeding ticket, has other scars.

“My mother is a 76-year-old woman, lives alone, minds her business, never broke the law. She doesn’t even have a moving violation,” said Mellerson’s daughter, Barbara Mellerson. “For her to go through something like this is ridiculous, and every time she talks about it, she starts shaking. I had to take my mother to the hospital.”

After the video was published to local media, police were forced to respond and a spokesman said the incident is under review.

WBAL reports that in a statement issued Tuesday afternoon, Chief Melissa Hyatt called the video “unsettling” and said she has “ordered a thorough investigation.” After that investigation is complete, the body-worn camera footage will be made public, she said.

“I thank the individual who taped the incident – our residents are important partners in our communities,” Hyatt said. “We hold our officers to a high standard of accountability. Maintaining the trust of those who live, work and visit Baltimore County is paramount as we continue to work together to keep communities safe.”

County Executive John Olszewski Jr. also responded.

“Every resident of the Baltimore County community deserves to be treated with respect by law enforcement,” he said in a statement. “This video raises serious concerns and warrants a full and thorough investigation.”

How many more grandmothers need to be attacked before Americans realize this problem isn’t going away?

True, since that video starts after she was aggressive. Typical Deckard post.

Family questions why police had to take 76-year-old woman to ground to arrest her

BALTIMORE —

Family and neighbors are questioning why it was necessary for Baltimore County police officers to pull a 76-year-old woman out of her house and throw her to the ground.

The 11 News I-Team obtained video Monday of the arrest that was recorded by a neighbor on her cellphone. Police also have video from the officers' body-worn cameras.

Rena Mellerson was arrested Friday afternoon at her house in Gwynn Oak. Police went there looking for her granddaughter.

The video obtained by the I-Team shows one officer in the doorway when another officer arrives and runs to the house. Mellerson was thrown on the ground.

"My mother is a 76-year-old woman, lives alone, minds her business, never broke the law. She doesn't even have a moving violation," said Mellerson's daughter, Barbara Mellerson. "For her to go through something like this is ridiculous, and every time she thinks about it, she starts shaking. I had to take my mother to the hospital."

Rena Mellerson was not seriously hurt. She was handcuffed, arrested and taken into custody. Officers said she interfered with the arrest of her granddaughter on a charge of disorderly conduct a short time earlier at a different location, where police said the granddaughter cursed at officers and caused a scene. But officers did not arrest the granddaughter at the time, saying they didn't see her leave.

Charging documents reveal one officer used Motor Vehicle Administration records to track her to her grandmother's house.

"They tracked her down like she was a fugitive," Barbara Mellerson said.

Officers made no mention of having an arrest warrant for the granddaughter, the family said. An officer used pepper spray and Tasers inside Rena Mellerson's house, saying her granddaughter had moved toward him in what he called an aggressive manner. His foot was caught in the door.

The granddaughter, Cierra Floyd, was also arrested. By the time Rena Mellerson was taken from her house, six officers surrounded her.

Rena Mellerson was charged with assault, interfering with an arrest and obstructing and hindering.

Floyd was charged with a similar violation, plus disorderly conduct.
