This past weekend in Groveland Florida two police officers were accused of pointing a gun at an 11-year-old girl during what was suppose to be a burglary.

As reported by Essence.com, an 11-year-old Florida girl tells the media how police , who were called to check on a burglary, broke into her house while she was on her bed watching TV, and forced her to the floor.

The young victim tells Channel 9 news that one of the officers was pushing her down and when he was pushing her down, he put his knee on her and the other officer had his gun pointed at her.

According to the girl, she was in the bed watching television when the officers entered through the garage door and let themselves inside the house, reportedly with guns drawn, responding to a burglary alarm over the weekend.

The two Groveland police officers named James Festa and John Rigdon who have been with the department for three years, and both have been disciplined several times are now being accused of using excessive force on the child.

Festa was reprimanded in December for botching a child abuse investigation. He was also suspended in 2013 for sleeping on the job.


Rigdon was suspended in May and demoted from corporal in 2013. He was also reprimanded in 2011. Each punishment was the result of allegedly filing false police reports.

Thank God the girl is ok and unharmed but according to reports she has been traumatized by the events that occurred.

Wonder what kind of punishment the officers are going to receive for this, if any at all?
