Former Philadelphia Police Officer Darren Kardos has been charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment of one other individual, and different expenses within the beating of Rickia Younger. In October 2020, Younger had gone to select up her nephew from a pal’s home. Hours earlier, police had shot and killed Walter Wallace, and what started as peaceable protests had grow to be violent. As she approached one intersection, officers ordered her to show round. However as she tried to make a U-turn, a number of officers started hitting and rocking her SUV. Kardos broke the home windows of the SUV and pulled Younger out by the hair. Officers hit her with fists and batons and sprayed her with mace. Neither Younger nor her nephew have been charged with any crime. The town has agreed to pay $2 million to settle a lawsuit Younger introduced.
