A Rochester, N.Y. police officer told a 9-year-old girl who was pepper-sprayed by officers in a now-infamous incident that “You did it to yourself, hun,” according to new police body camera footage released Thursday.

The city released more police body-worn camera footage showing the distraught and dismayed Black girl on Jan. 29, taken to the ground, handcuffed, and then put in the back of a Rochester Police Department police vehicle as she is pepper sprayed and calls out repeatedly for her father.

The incident has garnered international attention, sparked local protests, and emboldened activists and community members to call for immediate police reform. In response, the department suspended one officer with pay and placed two others on administrative leave.

Newly-released footage shows the child struggling in the back of the police vehicle as the pepper spray runs from her eyes and into her mouth. The girl, whom her mother said was making threats to harm herself and her mother, is in the back of the vehicle while police await the arrival of an ambulance.

The city provided roughly 16 minutes of bodycam footage initially. The city released an additional 86 minutes of footage Thursday morning.

“Please, don’t do this to me,” the girl pleaded after the irritant was sprayed into her eyes.
“You did it to yourself, hun,” an officer responded.
Mayor Lovely Warren said she pushed for the release of more footage in an effort to be transparent.
“I continue to share our community’s outrage for the treatment of this child and have ensured that she and her family have been connected to the support they need though our Person in Crisis team,” Warren said in a statement.
The Police Accountability Board said it hasn’t received all the information it has requested for its investigation. At this point, the PAB has only gotten the unredacted bodycam footage of the incident, it said in a previous statement.
Governor Andrew Cuomo released a statement Thursday afternoon saying that he found the new footage more shocking than the original video. “The relationship between police and communities is damaged, and needs to be fixed.”
