Cop Beats 11-Yr-Old Child Because His Hair “Wasn’t Short Enough”
However, with the Doziers, it seems, the argument went a step too far.
David Dozier’s 11-year-old son didn’t agree with how short his father his hair wanted his hair to be.
The older man, an officer with the Cincinnati Police Department, did not take kindly to being disagreed with.
In a reaction that was arguably way out of proportion, the cop slapped his son with such intensity that it knocked his tooth loose – not only this, it left Dozier’s handprint on the boy’s face.
He also punched his son in the stomach.
The Department has taken the matter seriously and issued a temporary protection order against the officer.
He has been stripped of his police powers, until a thorough investigation is complete.
In addition to this, he is not allowed to be in the company of two other minors – his relation to them is unknown.
He has also been prohibited from purchasing any firearms while the case is active.
The incident is disturbing on many levels.
First of all, the perpetrator was a man who was until last weekend in charge of protecting the community. If this is the kind of attitude he has towards his own son’s disobedience, one has to wonder how skilled he is when it comes to dealing with civilians.
Dozier was released on a $2500 bond.
With the anger management issues he has, one has to question whether it is safe for him to be out in the community.
If convicted the man faces 30 days in jail.
The public is already asking whether this term is enough to address his behavioral issues.
