Blaze Media’s Sara Gonzales released footage of a staffer for Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke and a female officer with the Dallas Police Department getting physical with her while she was taking a video of the candidate.
The video appears to show an O’Rourke staffer, who Gonzales has identified as Cynthia Cano, grabbing at Gonzales’ phone, and a female police officer, who Gonzales has identified as Jackia Miles, subsequently pushing her without warning.
“Here is the moment [Beto O’Rourke]’s staffer assaulted me right in front of him, tried to take my phone, and a [Dallas Police Department] officer joins in and assaults me while saying, ‘I don’t even gotta touch your phone, I can just touch you.’”
“Does DPD serve the taxpayers or the Democrat machine?” Gonzales questioned.
Gonzales on Saturday said the DPD told her they do not have bodycam footage of the incident. When The Daily Wire asked the department about the matter, we were told, “Due to the incident being under investigation we will not be able to disclose any further information.”
O’Rourke posed with Miles for a photo and posted it to his Instagram following the event, saying, “Big thanks to Officer Miles for being with us at our town hall and for serving our community each day.”
Gonzales said last weekend that a female O’Rourke staffer tried to rip her phone from her hands while Gonzales was at a public event for the candidate in Dallas. Gonzales was then “manhandled” by a female officer with the DPD and almost fell.
Not once was Gonzales directed not to record anything by anyone at the event, the conservative previously told The Daily Wire, adding that others had their phones out to record, too.
