‘Stop it! Stop it’: Shocking video shows young girl in Seattle crying after reportedly being maced by police
Video posted to social media on Saturday reportedly shows the aftermath after a young girl was maced by Seattle Police.
The girl can be heard screaming as protesters attempted to deliver first aid.
"Stop it! Stop it," she screamed.
Here is a thread Twitter user Kayvon Behroozian posted to Twitter, tagging local media outlets, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin and Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best.
