On Saturday, Actress Jodie Sweetin was manhandled and then shoved harshly by an officer of the Los Angeles Police department on video. She can be seen rolling across the ground afterwards.
She’s the star of ABC’s “Full House” and played Stephanie Tanner in the show. She was seen yelping into a megaphone during a protest against the Supreme Court’s recent landmark decision that overturned Roe v. Wade.
The first video shows protestors being pushed back by police officers with batons. The second video then shows Sweetin getting tossed to the ground like a rag doll.
“What the f–k is wrong with you guys?” one protester yelled back at the officers.
Sweetin can be seen picking up her hat afterwards and quickly chanting, “No justice, no peace.”
Photojournalist Michael Ade shot the footage of Sweetin marching with the protesters along the freeway.
The LAPD is now investigating the officers’ behavior seen in the video to make sure it was appropriate.
“The LAPD is aware of a video clip of a woman being pushed to the ground by officers not allowing the group to enter on foot and overtake the 101 freeway,” the LAPD said to People. “The force used will be evaluated against the LAPD’s policy and procedure.”
Last Friday, the Supreme Court voted 6-3 to overturn Roe v. Wade and return the right to legislate abortion to the states. A dozen states have already banned or made abortions very limited.
Thousands across the country turned out at different state Capitols over the weekend and made their voices heard after the issue. They were mostly non-violent. The Next News Network covered the protests outside the Supreme Court building and the trash left behind by liberal protesters there.
Liberals have become increasingly enraged over losing the ability to have babies aborted in conservative states. The right to abortion is not illegal nationwide as some of them claim. It’s just been changed to a state’s issue. This means that states can now decide for their voters what to do about the intense moral issue of abortion. Are you glad Roe has been overturned?
