The police challenged a man holding a toddler in his arms, causing him to crash into his child in shocking footage on the floor.

In the clip, taser officers withdrew guns after entering his apartment, louder and louder when they asked him to drop his child with a diaper.
While he points the narcotic gun at him, a cop says: “You have to drop the child, I don't want your baby to be injured,” before a female officer tries to grab his arm.
Oakley shouts: & # 39; Don't touch me! Don't touch me! & # 39; for officers taser suddenly the father who falls on his child.

& # 39; What about Mr. Oakry happened, should never have happened, & # 39; said Heather Hamel, attorney at the People & # 39; s Law Firm in Phoenix. The Washington Post.
& # 39; He and all his children have to deal with a lot of emotional and psychological trauma in the aftermath of this. Reliving today has brought that all forward. & # 39;
However, the police say they acted accordingly and described Oakry as & # 39; verbally aggressive and non-compliant & # 39 ;, according to the publication.
The Tempe police also insist that the child was not injured and that there was no evidence that the taser was affected.

& # 39; These innocent children and their mother were endangered by the suspect and any suggestion that anyone other than these suspects are endangering people is irresponsible & # 39 ;, said Police Commissioner Sylvia Moir of Tempe on Tuesday during a press conference.
However, the Oakry lawyer said that the police entered his apartment without permission and that electricity was likely to flow through his body and into the child, reports the Washington Post.
A Black Lives Matter activist has since called for & # 39; an immediate end to the use of violence against children & # 39; and says that the police involved in the incident should be fired.
Oakry & # 39; s mother, Lisa, her son and grandchildren were & # 39; damaged & # 39; and called police – & # 39; monsters & # 39; because they fooled her one-year-old grandson.
