Nikkita Brown was walking her dog when a Chicago police officer stopped her, grabbing her arm violently in the process. Ms. Brown, who was walking along a beach park that had allegedly closed an hour earlier, attempted to record the incident on her cell phone, which flew to the ground during the altercation.

Other bystanders witnessed the incident, which began when the officer stopped Ms. Brown, and she asked him to put on a mask. The officer, whose name has not been released, refused her request, and instead grabbed the innocent Black woman

Witnesses soon heard her shouts for help, and video evidence shows the officer grabbing Ms. Brown’s arm violently as she attempts to hold on to her dog. During the altercation, Ms. Brown was spun around several times, losing her shoes in the process. 

Officer under investigation

The incident is currently being investigated by the Chicago Citizen’s Office of Police Accountability. The officer, who was wearing his body camera, has been placed on administrative leave following the altercation with Ms. Brown. 

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot weighed in on the matter, stating “I saw the video. I was quite disturbed by what I saw. I want to make sure that COPA moves this up to the top of the priority list and gets this done.” 

COPA, for its part, responded in kind with a statement. “COPA has obtained and reviewed the body worn camera video of the involved Chicago Police officer engaging the woman as she walks her dog as a part of its investigation. COPA Investigators also canvassed the scene of the incident which occurred Saturday morning, August 28, 2021 and identified several additional video cameras in the area that may have captured the incident. Requests to obtain those videos are pending.”

Ms. Brown’s attorneys are adamant that she was doing nothing wrong prior to being targeted by the officer. “She was always in the process of leaving,” said her attorney, Keenan Saulter. ” She was always walking out of the park.”

  1. She asked him to put on his mask as required by law in Chicago and he flipped out and attacked. You see this every night on TV with the anti mask crazies threatening “war” over masks. Who made health care an issue to go to war over? I mean we do know. This whole artificial freedom argument created by MAGA medica hosts. These fools have no conscious and are creating a very dangerous environment just to boost rating and make money. Hannity is the worst, repeating lies over and over, repeating the name identical phrases, just like Goebels did for the Nazi’s media programs.

  2. “She asked him to put on his mask as required by law in Chicago and he flipped out and attacked.” The one who “flipped out” was the uppity dog walker. She knew exactly what she was doing.

    He did NOT attack the wacko; as for the mask she was wailing about, why did she not have one on? I think those who have common sense all know the answer as to why the whole incident occurred. It plays out many times across this country EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. yet those who are whining have no issue with the dementia riddled old man illegally residing in the White House. open borders, animals running amok hurting and killing innocent people, the burning, looting and murdering we saw night after night, etc.

    As for Hannity, I can’t stand him yet have no idea what the dog walker and the little sh*t show she put on has to do with him. She wanted her 15 minutes, she instigated the mess by breaking the law, period.
