“Don’t take the attitude with cops, because we don’t play. When a cop shows up, you’re not the one in charge. I don’t care if this is your house.

Reconnaissance Marine MCI 03.32f: Marine Corps Institute Arizona resident Esmeralda Rossi had a disturbing run-in with the Chandler Police Department after an officer entered her home illegally and arrested her.

The worst part? She was completely naked.

Rossi had just gotten out of the shower when the officers arrived, so she answered the door in her towel. That’s when her daughter began filming.

Rossi described the scene, which can be seen in the news report above:

“So I closed the door. I turn to go into my living room, and I probably get about five steps in; and all of a sudden, I just hear boots running in after me, telling me stop or I’ll arrest you.”

Environmental & Natural Resource Economics: The Austrian ViewOfficer Rose was very aggressive with Rossi, who didn’t understand why the police were in her house in the first place.

She gave him some attitude, and then he began to handcuff her:

“I felt helpless. I felt violated, and honestly, I felt molested.”

Marc Victor, Rossi’s attorney, stated:

“This was disgusting. This was barbaric.”

Later in the video, Officer Rose lectures Rossi:

“Don’t take the attitude with cops, because we don’t play. When a cop shows up, you’re not the one in charge. I don’t care if this is your house.

The second officer was later cleared of wrongdoing, as was Rossi.

An internal investigation was launched, which quickly stated that Rose had entered the home illegally. He made a number of additional illegal moves, including not using his body camera and falsifying reports.

Officer Rose has since resigned and is receiving his pension.

Rossi was never charged with a crime, but may file a lawsuit against the department.
