MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The mother of a 13-year-old black girl whose videotaped arrest in Minnesota has provoked an outcry on social media says her daughter is “no angel” but was treated unfairly by police. Davida Conover told The Associated Press on Saturday that her daughter has a mental illness. The mother would not specify the mental illness but contends that police were aware of it. Video of the Sept. 26 arrest at a UPS store in St. Paul, Minnesota, shows three white officers struggling to arrest the girl.
