It all started in the summer of 2014 when, according to her, the police brutally arrested and beat her 15 year old daughter because, they claimed, they smelled marijuana emanating from an open vehicle from which she was recovering a phone. The police dispatched 13 officers to arrest one 15 year old Afro-Mexican girl weighing around 115 lbs. They denied any wrongdoing in their handling of Isabel’s daughter’s case, and later dropped all the charges against her. See the story here:

Isabel reported that she and her children and other family members began to experience harassment by police in Fargo. She recorded various police stops for minor traffic offenses, and even an incident in which Fargo police pointed three guns at innocent passengers and a three year old baby.

Isabel says police went into her home and conducted a warrantless search. Her visiting friend was able to record part of the encounter. Her video recording of the incident can be found here:
