Aurora Police Force 4 Black Girls, Including a Crying 6-Year-Old, to Lie on Hot Ground After Stopping the Wrong Vehicle: ‘I’ve Called the Family to Apologize’

A troubled Colorado police department apologized after a group of Black girls were detained and forced to lie on a hot parking lot in a case of mistaken identity.

The incident occurred in the Denver suburb of Aurora, Colorado, on the morning of Sunday, Aug. 2, in the parking lot of a nail salon, according to The Denver Post. Video taken by a witness showed the girls, aged 6 to 17 years old, lying on the ground screaming and crying as Aurora police officers stood over them. An adult woman was also cuffed and walked away.

A 12-year-old and 17-year-old were cuffed and made to lie on their stomachs while two unrestrained girls, aged 6 and 14, were nearby. The police eventually realized they pulled over the wrong car. They were responding to a call about a stolen vehicle with the same license plate number. However, the missing vehicle is a motorcycle with a Montana plate. The girls were riding in a vehicle with a Colorado plate.

Brittney Gilliam, the adult who was driving the car, told 9NEWS she was taking her daughter, sister and nieces out for a day at the nail salon but it was closed. The police’s treatment of her family upset Gilliam.

“There’s no excuse why you didn’t handle it a different type of way,” Gilliam told the news station. “You could have even told them ‘step off to the side let me ask your mom or your auntie a few questions so we can get this cleared up.’ There was different ways to handle it.”

Teriana Thomas, Gilliam’s niece, said the incident destroyed her trust in the police.

“It’s like they don’t care,” the 14-year-old said. “Who am I going to call when my life is in danger?”

Interim Police Chief Vanessa Wilson apologized for the mix-up on Monday night.

“I have called the family to apologize and to offer any help we can provide, especially for the children who may have been traumatized by yesterday’s events,” Wilson said in a statement. “I have reached out to our victim advocates so we can offer age-appropriate therapy that the city will cover.”

Despite the mea culpa, Wilson believes her officers acted appropriately in a “high-risk stop,” but she admitted the officers must be allowed to “have discretion and to deviate from this process when different scenarios present themselves.” Wilson added she has instructed her staff to look into “new practices and training.”

The Aurora Police Department has been under scrutiny since the death of Elijah McClain. McClain died in August 2019 after he was stopped by officers who were acting on a call about a masked man behaving erratically. During McClain’s detainment, three officers used a carotid control hold, which caused him to lose consciousness briefly before he resumed struggling with the officers. After first responders arrived, McClain was given a sedative and suffered two heart attacks on the way to the hospital. He died on Aug. 30, six days after the initial stop. The incident is currently under renewed investigation by state officials.

    Are you joking right now?? If that family was white there ain’t no damn way the police would have put the kids on that ground! Then the chief trying to justify why they were pulled out like that! High risk for a damn stolen car but It is not high risk when these white people kill numerous of people! GET THE HELL OUT IF HERE!

  2. Anonymous says:

    An apology is insufficient. These girls, including the adult was traumatized. The cops need to be fired, and a cash settlement needs to be entered into with each family member! Enough is enough. Having them pay on the hot ground, is unthinkable! They are not animals! FIRE THEM!

  3. Jasper says:

    This is not how these police would have treated a pale skinned family. Therefore this is racism. All the officers should be terminated immediately. If you cannot tell a car from a motorcycle you cannot be a policewoman or man.

  4. Lovely says:

    Your holding four children at gun point calling it a high risk stop! Hi risk over stolen property that can’t be traumatized!!! Your kidding right. Hi risk is someone just killed another person! Yeah that’s high risk! This is not!!!!

    Chief Wilson is not only tone deaf but blind as well. There
    is no question of the children being traumatized. How can

    redress must be made for these innocent children and their adult relative who was driving.

    The officers have a hot sheet, with license plates of missing, stolen or whatever the case may be. The get a new sheet everyday. They said they were looking for a motorcycle with out state plates. The victims yes victims of the police, had Colorado plates and was not a motorcycle. This is just BULLSHIT. IT WILL CLEARLY SAY ON THE HOT SHEET EXACTLY WHAT IS MISSING OR STOLEN

    Shame on you, Aurora Police Dept.!! Those officers should be fired and so should Wilson! This kind of behavior taints every police officer and won’t be tolerated any more! Police are paid with Tax dollars to keep us safe! It doesn’t give you authority to abuse children of any law abiding citizen! Do it right! Officers are not above the law!

    As a white make i can assure you that cops would do this to white oeople as well. I say this as someone who has been treated in the same way for the same reason or should i say lack of reason. However I would agree that this kind of thing does seem to happen to the black community on more occasions and it is unacceptable. These policies need to change I understand that the police do not know who they are dealing with in most any situation and feel that they need to get and keep the upper hand for their safety until they know exactly who is who and that they are in no danger. But this can never be at the expense of an innocent persons right to feel safe in this country. No matter what color they are even if it possibly puts them at a higher risk they need to deal with people with respect and dignity even if they are guilty until they do something that actually threatens their safett. It happens every single day and at almost any instance that they cone into contact with our citizens. They are told to take and keep control immediately between that and the fact that most of them have a power complex and over zealous ego think that they have the power over us. Which in fact is the opposite of the truth. There is no wonder this kind of crap happens all damn day long. Eventhough they may have had in fact a lic. # that matched so understandably
    Needed to make contact with them it cetainly could have been dealt with in another way especially once they were aware that small children were involved. They could have asked everyone to stay in yhe car and askrd the driver to exit the vehicke then inquire as to yhe ownership of the vehicle. Which could have been straightened out without even one other person needing to be removed from the car. I mean how hard would that have been. I do not think that this was a racially motivated situation “though I certainly can see why it woul

    This is another incident of police brutality against people of color that a Caucasian family in this matter in fact I would wager that in the history of the police department in Colorado they have never done this to a Caucasian family in the past this Police Department should be sued and the jewelry should give the maximum award to this family as well as any psychological trauma done to those babies Sue sue the hell out of them get yourself a Jewish lawyer and SUE THEM!!!!

    If the police chief thinks the action taken was appropriate and the only problem is that it was mistaken identity she needs to lose her job.
    It’s tiring to keep trying to school people who know they are wrong. Even if this was a white family it’s still wrong. It seems that America is so far gone that people are starting to believe their own rhetoric.

They clearly need additional support, training and therapy because I have no idea how you can comfortably just stand there while watching A FUCKING 6 YEAR OLD LIE ON THE GROUND AND CRY FOR HER MOTHER. At this point it is more than clear that police lack compassion or even simple courtesy when approaching black civilians.

    I am lost for words. High risks is if she didn’t stop and didn’t comply. I heard a talk that black children aren’t seen as children by whites. This makes me be that notion. No one verified the information at all. Did dispatch state motorcycle? Out of state plate if not they’re at fault as well. This is horrible and I would sue the department, dispatch, and each officer individually. Someone should’ve realized the mistake prior to approaching the vehicle. When she said the kids were scared and asked to speak privately the kids could have remained in the car. Wow!!! This is America !!!

  44. Just a voice says:

    This is how people get killed by the police. This incident shows so many levels of incompetency. First, someone didn’t make clear that the vehicle was a motorcycle. Second, if the message was conveyed, they don’t know the difference between an SUV and a MOTORCYCLE! Third, did they really present as being car thieves? Really! Naw! Y’all getting sued!

  45. Tameyka says:

    If these police officers weren’t so busy training to handle American citizens, as if we’re all out here behaving as radical militias, in third world countries. This wouldn’t continue to happen within law enforcement. They need to differentiate the war being on crime and not the American people altogether. The same rules don’t apply for every stop. Every situation. Why put 2 different races of cops together. When neither one of them can be trusted to think rationally or logically. Let’s be real. These officers are terrified of the way their communities doubt and fear them as well. How can you have groups of men and women, wearing badges of authority, patrolling the streets their scared to be in their damn selves 😒🤦🏽‍♀️

    If your officers can’t read enough to know the difference between Colorado and Montana or know the difference between a motorcycle and a van, then there is something wrong with your hiring policy. And, that being said, it is no wonder such racist, inconsiderate, horrible behavior occurred. What compassionate person would ever do that to four male children, let alone four female? The fact that they are Black, the manner in which they were treated, and the way the officers stood around watching has hints of things that occurred back in slavery days…Chief, I know you have to stand behind your officers, but what about standing up for those you are supposed protect? Are your feelings the same as your dirty officers who seemed to derive so much joy in the agony of those poor children, their cries of pain and fear? ? Are you watching the body cam video from the police officers and laughing and joking with the other officers as well? you repeatedly watch and listen to such fear? The crap you are offering as an apoligy and excuse is just that…crap, phony, and unbelievable. You should have kept it. No one believes it…or you.

    Your apology was obviously a gimmick to try and justify your officer’s lack of empathy. Everyone knows why this was done. You people try every trick known to murder and maim. If those children HADN’T lay on the hot pavement, that would have given them probable cause to murder or maim, once again. For that, NO ONE accepts your apology.

  68. A child of God says:

    I’m in total agreement with anonymous #2. The officers who did this should be terminated and a cash settlement awarded to each of the victims. These young ladies are going to be scared for life. They will hesitant about calling the police for help based on what they’ve experienced. Their captain should be fired also is she can’t see that what happened was uncalled for. That could not have been my chol or grandchild, because I would not let it go until justice was served. Contrary to what white people think, African Americans are not animals or any other negative things you may call us or think about us. We are human beings with the same emotions and desires that you have. We all bleed the same color which is RED. It’s time to put all this hate and racism aside that you have for us. However, I know in my heart that it’ll never happen until Jesus returns and all this will be no more. You don’t have to agree with me and I really don’t care. I’m just expressing my feelings. You all have a peaceful and blessed. Stay healthy and safe.

    This is about the most ridiculous thing I’ve seen in years. Why are these people being treated like animals?? The kid that kill those 9 church members didn’t receive this foul treatment. This is why people protest police treatment of African Americans. Help me understand how she believes her officers acted appropriately. My wife and daughter are police officers, but definitely not this kind. The badge on the left of the uniform symbolizes justice with compassion. For everyone, not just certain people. So sad.

    Barbara Jacobite, this does happen to white people. You just don’t see it in the media.

  101. Me says:

    If this was a car with white kids being pulled over this would not have happened to them. If it was white kids and a non white driver (potential babysitter or nanny) the cops would have assumed they were kidnapping victims. They would have been treated nicely, asked if they were ok and heck probably even given lollipops and shit.

  102. Bud Martin says:

    Speaking as someone who would be considered “pale skinned”, in my experience, cops who violate peoples rights and have an attitude of being above the law are equal opportunity ass wipes. I’ve been on the shit end of the stick when pulled over many times. I’ve had cops tear my vehicle apart inside and out, only to find nothing. I’ve had cops challenge me to get physical with them when I hadn’t shown any attitude of aggression. No Barbara,you probably haven’t heard about this kind of thing happen to white folks, but it does. It just wouldn’t make the news. Encounters with the cops have cost me a considerable amount of $$ over the years. Sometimes I legitimately hadn’t taken care of something and it caught up with me. Other times it was totally bogus. And there is no real recourse. Good luck trying to file a complaint. God Bless us all and lets pray for peace and an equal quality of life for those who want to live and work in this country.

    Ridiculous preditor type behavior by the Colorado police Officers. Aren’t there any minority police officers in that department? That is the first clue of discrimination in hiring practices, therefore discrimination in how officers serve the public, profile, harass and damage their relationship with the entire community. Not a good model and might end end up losing $$$$$$ in law suits and government funding. What’s the motivation to change these scenarios since training fails to be ineffective Chief Vanessa Wilson?

  107. Unacceptable. Fire and charge the maximum. The police chief needs to step down too.

    I can’t understand what does are guys in blue thinks when their on their on their way to work. “I’m going to get me some niggers today.” What I can’t understand with police officer in uniform. How do you treat man-kind that way like where bottom feeders? Would you like someone to treat your brothers, sisters, mother, father, and children like their inhumane? The Colorado police department in Aurora needs to revamp the entire police department and have officer “Tommie “ look him up on “YouTube “ to teach Aurora Police officer in that Department culture diversity and ethical skills. Police officers are to protect and serve- but if your killing our black community and degrading them what are you protecting. The chief needs prayer because “God” sits high and watch low, and if she’s comfortable with what happened to that family, I don’t want to see… where her soul is going…. Show me where a white Family has been faced down on hot pavement with a Six and fourteen years old children pleading for their life traumatized like on August 2. 2020. I will never text my comments again. This world is so sad because people that don’t look like you….feel the need to take you out. Only God is allowed to that. And no one is no better than he.

  118. Janet says:

    The problem is systemic. Firing the cops involved is like digging a hole in the sand too close to the water at the beach. The next cops that take their place would do the same thing. The department is rotten to the core. Defund the police. Put more money in the communities for the arts, social programs and training for the remaining police department. And yes, as a beige person, I can almost guarantee that if I was pulled over, I would not have ended up on the asphalt. We all know, all of us with all our shades of skin color that racism is alive and going strong in the USA, 2020. Shame. When the darker skin colored people become the majority, we can only hope that they don’t do the same thing the pale skinned people have been doing for ever!

    Pure dumb and Pure racism and Pure hate for black people. Those children had no business forced to lie face down, handcuffed on that Covid-19 contaminated parking lot. They did not have any weapons. All those officers should be fired and not be allowed to work anywhere again in law enforcement. They have no regard for black people lives, not even for a 6 year old child..

    Get off this racist bullshit. I was those kids when I was young. Forced to sit on hot pavement while they figured out what was going in. Fuck all of you that want to abolish the police. Grow the fuck up and stop playing the victim. When you encounter the police, shut the fuck up, do what they say, and if you feel that you were mistreated then do something about it after the incident is over. Dont try and fight them on the spot, your not going to accomplish anything except making matters worse for yourself.

    High risk stopping a car full of women & children, who are you trying to kid. Mass murderer Dylan Roof arrested after being stopped by police.

    And, with all the high tech communications, reporting and computer assisted information available to police forces, ‘mistaken identification’ over an ‘identical’ (?) plate number from a different state. Come on, that’s pretty lame. How about a different country – Ontario, Canada. That’s gotta be the lamest after-the-fact made up excuse or blatant incompetence (assuming the cops in question are all literate) or just sloppy work.

    Without a doubt the most vile, inhumane, and disgusting video that I have seen in more than 40 yrs of using the computer. Those cops, including the bitch cop should be shackled and paraded through the streets for their unwarranted treatment of those innocent children. I am sure they have families and they should have to worry and agonize for the rest of their lives that their children are treated in the same manner. I spent 27 yrs in this vile country’s military, supposedly protecting the home of the brave. What a bunch of horse shit.

    It is inhumane to have a 6 years old child to lie down, as if he/she committed a crime. However, it’s negligence & abusive to allow people skin touch the heated ground. How many mistakes are you going to make before you realize it’s the wrong person, I thought he had a gun, or I My life felt threatened? Our tax dollars are paying for a cult, and racist cultures that continues to abuse their power, don’t follow the protocol, and target blacks, underprivileged, mentally ill, & poor people! The killing of Blacks and Browns are direct correlation to racism. It’s an intended consequence!

  137. Rob says:

    The police involved including the Chief should all be terminated. There was no reason to put the four young blacks on the hot ground. And the audacity of the Chief trying to justify putting a six year old on the hot ground. At six years of age was she a threat to the police? This is so wrong.

    Looking for a stolen motorcycle, so they stopped a car.
    How is that “a vehicle with similar description”?
    This is a lie to protect their own.

  142. Gigi says:

    How can a cop mistakenly believe someone is in a “stolen” car? Once he called the tag in, he knew before he stopped them that the car is not “stolen”.

    They [or whichever cop initiated this racist police harassment] just wanted to terrorize some Black people, even Black children.

    All the racial profiling, harassment and terrorism police are inflicting on Black people is not a “mistake”.

    It is premeditated, planned, thought out, Before they do it.

    They have been assured ahead of time, that there will be no consequences for any harassment, terrorism, brutalization and murder of Black people [i.e., that they won’t be tried or convicted for their Crimes against Black people, and wind up in one of America’s predominately Black prisons], or they wouldn’t be doing it, in fact, it is the ONLY reason it is happening on the scale it is right now.

    Hopefully, these children’s parents are going to demand these cops’ resignations, and sue for the abuse and damages they inflicted on their children.
