Viral video of woman's arrest sparks anger, but LAPD says she was involved in violent kidnapping plot
A viral video of several Los Angeles police officers training their firearms on an unarmed woman drew fierce criticism online Monday, but police and prosecutors said Tuesday that the footage actually depicted the arrest of one of three people involved in a violent plot to hold an actor for ransom.
The video, taken early Monday near La Cienega Boulevard and Centinela Avenue, shows several police officers aiming their guns at a woman who has her hands in the air. As the woman walks backward toward the officers to surrender, the person filming the video can be heard questioning the large-scale police response.
Five guns pointed at this woman, at this unarmed, black woman, the person behind the camera says.
The video, which had been viewed nearly 2 million times on Twitter as of Tuesday morning, depicted the arrest of a woman who was the subject of a felony kidnapping warrant, said Officer Mike Lopez, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Police Department.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that the woman was one of three people involved in a kidnapping and ransom plot that involved an actor being stripped naked and starved for more than a day.
The woman, identified as Amber Neal, 25, was indicted last month along with Keith Andre Stewart and Johntae Jones in a plot to kidnap and extort an actor and actress in Compton, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.
The trio were charged with 17 felonies, including kidnapping, assault with a firearm and mayhem in connection with an incident that took place in May 2017, court records show.
Prosecutors said Stewart, Jones and Neal went to the home of actress Daisy McCrackin and pistol whipped actor Joseph Capone before placing black hoods on

There will always be those weak minded types who will fall for anything, sight unseen.
Looks like I got a little competition!
especially when it comes to hating on police- 1000’s of cops put their lives on the line all day every day for we the public- and do so without any fanfare or incident- yet a few police either make mistakes, or abuse their power- and all of a sudden the hole police force is guilty of abuse of power- many even on FR are anti-police- and jump on every thread of potential police abuse in an effort to vilify the police-
The anti-police sentiment by the left is so severe in california infact that police are leaving california and getting jobs in other states- pretty soon there will be noone there to selflessly put their lives on the line to protect the citizens-
Well, if they read what these three thugs did to this guy (put out his eye, cut his tongue, and may have done more) they might understand. But the victims seem to have been white (the actress is for sure)... so maybe this is just Reparations. /s
Starved him for 30 hours. Yes this is horrible. And yes he is an actor and that was also my immediate thought which I shall refrain from typing.
Too bad she didn’t give the officers a chance for some target practice.
Is he a democrat sjw?
“As the woman walks backward toward the officers to surrender, the person filming the video can be heard questioning the large-scale police response.”
She’s lucky....cops murdered that poor innocent exterminator in the motel hallway in Mesa as he was crawling on all 4’s begging for his life. Then the sons of bitches skated. Rotten apple spoils barrel.

There is such a thing as bad publicity, after all. Thanks BBell.
It doesnt matter what she did, she is black and innocent.
Not sure I see much of a problem. Pretty fair treatment when in the police officers mind she is armed and dangerous.
Video I saw was a textbook felony stop. Absolutely nothing to see here.
The poor thing was arrested at gunpoint merely because she was part of a team that kidnapped, beat and tortured two people and apparently mutilated the male victim to ensure the female knew they were serious.
I’m no fan of militarized cops, but this seems pretty reasonable.
If she had decided to go out shooting, the cops have no obligation to make it a fair fight, and the bystanders reading race into it have either swallowed the libtard koolaid or are pimping race hatred for online hits.
“There is such a thing as bad publicity, after all.”
There is when it is for having your male parts cut off or destroyed.
This happened over a year ago, and she is out walking around.
Even if they knew the details, don't assume they would care. The victims were not of their tribe, and so were of lesser importance.
Not the same dang scenario at all. Try a little reading.
As for those who say she was obviously not armed. Refer to this video https://youtu.be/c_GJlFEXOcw
