Jay-Z is stepping in to help Phoenix couple who were aggressively arrested by police after their daughter accidentally walked out of a Dollar Store with a doll they hadn’t payed for. The arrest was recorded in which the video went viral. The cop was seen drawing a gun on the pregnant mother, Iesha Harper, demanding she put her one-year old daughter that she was holding down on the ground.
Roc Nation’s Managing Director of Philanthropy, Dania Diaz, explained, “There is no place for that behavior in our world – let alone our justice system – and we are calling for the immediate termination of the police officers in question. We are committed to supporting the family to ensure that justice is served.”
Roc Nation has secured high profile attorney, Alex Spiro, to join Roc Nation’s legal team pro-bono and handle this particular case.
