A heartbreaking video of Tampa police separating a woman from her screaming children has surfaced on social media.
WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that Tampa police got a call of a woman ‘under severe mental distress‘ and when the police arrived in the downtown area, they saw the woman walking along the road with her 5 barefoot kids.
The children were ripped off from their mother by the Tampa cops while reacting to the issue.
According to report, the members of the family did not approve of being separated and they cried out and tried to hold onto each other as the police forcibly separated the kids from their mother.
