Georgette Prince was coming out of an Akron, Ohio, convenience store when a man pushed her back into the store, pointed a firearm at her and told her to get on the ground. When she did, he pulled her hands behind her and handcuffed her. Outside, another man pointed a gun at her 12-year-old son Davonte, ordered him out of the vehicle he was sitting in and forced him to the ground. The armed men weren't robbers. They were part of a Summit County sheriff's SWAT team that was raiding the store as part of a shoplifting investigation. SWAT team members and other members of the sheriff's office say their treatment of Prince and her son was "according to the book."
