Alarming Moment A Toddler Walks Towards Armed Police With Hands Up

As officers arrest a suspect, who can be heard on the video saying he is the children's father, the girl gets out of the truck and walks toward police, with her hands up.

He said officers were surprised when the little girl popped out of the truck and approached them and ask their detainee are there any other adults in the auto.

Footage has gone viral of a barefoot two year old walking towards armed police in Florida with her hands up. An officer meets the girl and picks her up.

"She's trying to get out but she can't because she's little", a person says in the video. "Just my 2-year-old daughter and 1-year-old son".

But the Tallahassee Police Department later released body camera footage revealing police had in fact comforted the child, focusing on her safety in the hard situation. 'She is out. Oh, she's holding her hands up.

Body camera footage showed officers talking with the shoplifting suspects after and trying to get the toddler and an infant, who were in the pickup, safely away from the vehicle.

"When, unexpectedly, a 2-year-old girl climbed out of the truck and imitated her parents by walking towards the officers with her hands raised".

The initial clip racked up over 100,000 views over the weekend, forcing Tallahassee Police to release bodycam footage, following an internal investigation, to assuage public fears that police brutality had reached a new low.

The other child was found strapped in his auto seat inside the vehicle.

"Sweetie, you put your hands down". "The officers stopped the vehicle and were following their training as they had the suspected armed adults step out of the truck", said Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo in a video posted on Facebook.

The gun they were in possession of was actually a pellet gun, cops said.

"I am proud of how officers handled the situation, how they adapted when they became aware of the children, the level of concern and compassion they showed to the family", he said, as the Tallahassee Democrat reported.

Chad M. Bom, 34, and James W. McMullen, 38, were each charged with theft from Bealls Outlet. By releasing the body camera footage, though, it helps stress "the value of body-worn cameras providing different perspectives of the same instant", he said.
