Sep 17 - Woman sues police union over misleading Facebook photo of her son

A woman who was pulled from her car and beaten by Philadelphia police during a protest last year is suing a police union for posting what she calls a misleading photo of her “terrified” toddler on social media, attorneys for the woman said.

The Fraternal Order of Police, the country’s largest police union, posted a Facebook photo of Rickia Young’s then 2-year-old son in a police officer’s arms last October claiming the child had been lost and wandering around aimlessly. However, police had actually taken the boy after officers smashed out Young’s car windows with the child inside, dragged Young from the vehicle and beat her, according to Young’s attorneys. She hadn’t broken any laws.

Here is the full picture and what the now-deleted post read:

“This child was lost during the violent riots in Philadelphia, wandering around barefoot in an area that was experiencing complete lawlessness. The only thing this Philadelphia Police Officer cared about in that moment was protecting this child. We are not your enemy. We are the Thin Blue Line. And WE ARE the only thing standing between Order and Anarchy.”

“I will never forget what those officers did to us that night,” Young said at a recent news conference. “For them to portray me as this type of mom who wouldn’t know or care where her child was while chaos was happening all around is very hurtful. All to promote a political message of fear of Black people and civil protesters."

“Our physical injuries may heal,” she added, “but the pain of seeing those images of my son in the arms of an officer and that horrible caption written to describe that picture may never heal.”

Young is seeking more than $50,000 in damages in the suit, as her attorneys said she endured harassment, anxiety, depression and a damaged reputation as a result of the social media post.

Young filed the lawsuit on Sept. 9, just days before it was announced that the city of Philadelphia had agreed to settle an earlier lawsuit stemming from the attack and would pay her $2 million. Additionally, after an investigation, two officers were fired and more than a dozen others were awaiting disciplinary action, according to The New York Times.

Officials with the police union did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News.

Young’s latest complaint accuses the police union of posting an “intentional lie” to “promote its propaganda.”

I didn’t see where she 2 mill in another suit but I saw 50K for this one and thought that’s way too low. Hope she wins. That’s a bullsh*t way to fuel your agenda

$2M the settlement with the city for when they beat her. She got a new lawsuit for the photo and I'm with you, I hope it's a larger payout.
