Security Guard Body Slams A 16-Year-Old Girl For Suspected Shoplifting
POSTED BY WLAS March 29th, 2018 0 COMMENTS

An Ohio security guard at a Kroger grocery store is under fire from the community for body slamming a 16-year-old African-American girl he suspected of shoplifting.

Complex reports that 32-year-old Tom Clingo can be seen on video, recorded by Tevin Ford, body slamming the girl.

Yelling and screaming can be heard in the background as Clingo got on top of the teenager.

“He thinks that’s his job? To handle a little girl like that? Are you crazy?” can be heard from someone in the video. Clingo says he suspected the teenager of taking “miscellaneous items.”

After uploading the video to Facebook on March 26, Ford’s video has been viewed 145,000 times and shared by more than 3,500 people.

The 16-year-old has been charged with robbery for trying to break free from Clingo’s hold as he body slammed her. Clingo however, has not been charged with anything.

The police department of Toledo, Ohio maintained a distance from the incident making the distinction that Clingo is security and has nothing to do with them. Sgt. Kevan Toney added, “If people were upset with the manner in which he acted, they should contact Kroger, I suppose.”

Kroger didn’t make a direct comment about the incident and said, “everything’s in the report.”
