The woman arrested by Fort Worth police had the criminal charges dropped. The video that went viral showed the officer disrespect her after she called him to an incident involving a man touching her child.
The December arrest of Jacqueline Craig has sparked a discussion. Craig reported to the Fort Worth police about an incident involving a neighbor and her son soon got out of hand. The cop who arrested her decided to lecture her on how to be a parent. When her daughter go in between them, the cop arrested them.
The cop named William Martin, arrested her on disorderly conduct. She and her daughter spent a couple of nights in county lockup. The man who grabbed the child didn't even face charges.
Before the arrest, everything was cordial. But it turned into a heated exchange when Martin decided to be a parent.
"Well, why don't you teach your son not to litter?" Martin said to Craig while being recorded.
"He can't prove to me that my son littered," Craig responds. "But it doesn't matter if he did or didn't. It doesn't give him the right to put his hands on him."
"Why not?" said Martin.

They finally released the name of the man accused of putting his hands on the child. He will face misdemeanor charges for assault.
Itamar Vardi, expect death threats. Expect death threats because you put your hands on a child. A child that's not even yours. You have no business putting your hands on that boy. Your actions should have resulted in your arrest. You should have been placed in the handcuffs, not Jackie Craig.
If that had been my son, I'm going to serve you knuckle style chili. Matter of fact, I will either be in the iron college or my son would bury me because I seriously put a dent in his face.
Anyway, Martin got iced for 10 days without pay. Craig's attorney is calling for a cannon firing.
The body camera footage is released and it's explicit. Be warned the language is disturbing.
