Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said she felt "sick" after watching the video of the altercation, and that it was "completely inappropriate and clearly unprofessional".

She added: "There is no situation in which this behaviour is ever close to acceptable."

"As a mother myself, seeing these children placed in such a terrifying situation is beyond upsetting."

Ms Gallego then promised to push forward the implementation of body cameras on police officers, and to call a community meeting over the incident.

Police say the shop manager has ultimately decided not to press charges, meaning no arrests were made.
