Cindy Falco-DiCorrad: ‘You’re violating my personhood!
After police back-up was called, Cindy Falco-DiCorrado was captured on video being taken out of the shop as she screamed that police were violating her ‘personhood’. She also accused a black sheriff of kidnapping her and stealing her purse.
The woman then began to pray, before being put into handcuffs over the bonnet of a police vehicle, screaming ‘I can’t breathe’, the words used in the Black Lives Matter movement to raise awareness of police brutality against black citizens.
Falco-DiCorrado was later charged with trespassing and resisting arrest without violence.
Cindy Falco-DiCorrado: What the footage shows
The video was posted on an Instagram page called ‘Crazy Karens’.
During the video, which is being filmed by an associate of Falco Di-Corrado, the woman says to the black sheriff: ‘Get your hands off of me. You are kidnapping me. You don’t have the right, sir. I have done nothing wrong and I am not a criminal.’
She adds: ‘You get this?’, looking to the camera, ‘I’m asking him to take his hand off of me’.
Throughout the exchange, the officer refers to her as ‘ma’am’ and asks her to leave the shop quietly. Insisting that it is a violation of her ‘personhood’ DiCorrado then tells the officer that she is invoking her first amendment right.
She says: ‘Look at this. He has no right to kidnap me. This is because the police department is ignorant of constitutional rights. This is why this man has his hand on me and is on my personhood. I have the right to protect my personhood’.
As the cop holds on to the strap of DiCorrado’s bag hanging on her arm, she shouts: ‘Hey don’t steal my purse. Stop stealing my purse.’
A second officer arrives and she is escorted, from the building, before being handcuffed over a police vehicle, screaming ‘I can’t breathe’ and ‘I have done nothing illegal’. A mandate is currently in place requiring citizens to wear masks in public places, as a result of the global pandemic.
