They were clearing the room due to people in the audience becoming unruly. The officers had to eventually go from person to person asking them to leave. We do not know how long the officers were there accosting her, if she had indeed resisted to leave like they claim, or if it was mere moments. The video starts moments before they forcefully remove her. The excessive use of power they demonstrate is far above what was required. Though elderly people tend to think sometimes they can do as they please, they, like the police here, cannot do as they please. If she had refused to leave they had the right to remove her, but this is way to much.

I don't know why did she get arested, but I don't like those who speak more than they do. If people really wanted to help her, they would have done something.
