Police under fire, after handcuffing an 11-year-old in Michigan

- Grand Rapids police officers are under fire for handcuffing an 11-year-old girl at gunpoint during an attempted-murder investigation.

According to police, officers ordered 3 females to walk backwards toward them before they were handcuffed. 

Grand Rapids Police Chief David Rahinsky said  he was "physically nauseated" by the conduct of officers.

Rahinsky added that police body-camera images of the girl's detention were "disturbing" and said police should have used discretion because of her age.

The girl was reportedly screaming during the December 6th incident. Police released a part of the recordings captured by body cam.

"The screams of the 11-year-old, they go to your heart." Rahinsky said.

The incident occurred as police searching the home of the girl's aunt.
