Jay-Z is offering legal support to assist a Phoenix, AZ family. A week ago, a viral video emerged of the police pulling guns on a young child over an innocent shoplifting incident.
Arizona officers were caught using excessive force and threatening to shoot a pregnant mother over an alleged shoplifting incident. #PhoenixPD do the right thing. These officers are unfit to serve. #BarbieIsForLittleBlackGirlsToo #DravonAmes #IeshaHarper https://t.co/YjMhXPRTUN pic.twitter.com/vz1Vurg9Wn

The couple claims they didn’t notice their daughter walked out the shop with a Barbie. Since the horrifying incident, the family has sued Phoenix PD for assault. In order to settle the case, the family’s lawyer, former Attorney General Tom Horne, has requested a sum of $10 million. The Roc Nation CEO has reportedly hired Alex Spiro to join the family’s legal team.
