23 year old Jazmine Headley took a day off work to go to the Human Resources Admin offices in Brooklyn to resolve an issue with her daughter's day care vouchers.

There were no chairs available, so after 4 HOURS, Headley sat on the floor with her kids. 1/6 #NYPD #PoliceViolence
Security guards asked her to stand. There were still no empty chairs & the day care issue hadn't been resolved.

Bradley didn't stand. Security guards took her to the floor & police violently yanked her son away in an unnecessary use of #physicalforce. 2/6
Onlookers took video & yelled for police to stop, saying Bradley hadn't bothered anyone.

One officer pointed a stun gun at the crowd, then at Headley. 3/6 #HumanRightsDay
Headley was arrested on charges of resisting arrest, committing an act in a manner injurious to a child, criminal trespass & obstruction of governmental administration. 4/6
Lisa Schreibersdorf, executive director of Brooklyn Defender Services, said her office has assigned an attorney to represent Headley. 5/6 #HumanRights
The incident is being investigated by the NYPD & the DA's office.

The DA has said they do not plan to proceed with charges against Headley.

Sitting on the floor after 4 hours of standing isn't a crime.

Nobody needed to call the police. They needed a few chairs. #dignity
