Police departments all around the country are having trouble getting in touch with reality as multiple scandals have been popping up left, right, and center. From fake "thank you" cards to a shocking video of an officer crying over her egg McMuffin, I think they're really starting to lose it out here.
Now, yet another shocking video has emerged of police in Tampa forcefully separating children from their mother.
Keep scrolling for the full story.

Footage of George's "arrest" quickly circulated on social media...

After nearly ten minutes, George was completely unresponsive.

And then there was another Twitter scandal.
via: TwitterWhich featured a two-minute clip shows a police officer in her car having a breakdown because she couldn't see McDonald workers preparing her meal.
"They just handed me a coffee... And that's it."
via: TwitterShe started getting incredibly emotional that she didn't get her English breakfast meal and later on in the video, starts crying over it.
You know what? I'll give her one thing.
via: TwitterShe claims she had just come off a shift and she was tired and hungry, and I understand what that can do to a person, but imagine posting this video with that much confidence.
Have the police lost touch with reality?

But now another video is getting people talking.It's the shocking footage of a mother and her children being forcefully separated by cops.
The scene is gutwrenching.Cops were called to a mother who was 'under severe mental distress'. But many people think they approached the scene completely wrong.
She was walking down the street.When they arrived in the downtown area of Tulsa, they saw her walking in the road with her 5 barefoot kids.
One cop held the mother against a fence.
