The 65-year-old Black grandmother who was forcefully manhandled and pulled from her SUV during a traffic stop in Georgia recently spoke out about the incident.

“Justice in America has become a diluted soup and it needs to gain its strength again,” Rose “Mama” Campbell said at a press conference about the May 4 violent arrest involving Alpharetta Police Officer James Legg, who quit after being suspended during an investigation into the matter.

Campbell was pulled over for “failure to maintain lane” by Legg, who issued a ticket. When the grandmother said she was innocent and didn’t accept the ticket, Legg then opened her door without consent and forcefully tried to take her out of the vehicle. Legg also yelled obscenities at Campbell, who demanded to speak with a supervisor during the incident caught on dashcam footage.

At one point, several officers joined Legg in trying to manhandle Campbell, who said she feared for her life.
