A woman live-streamed her verbal attack of some Cedar Rapids police officers on social media while inside a busy coffee shop.

The video was live-streamed on the woman's Facebook page during a recent visit to Brewhemia.

In the video you see a female police officer in uniform being verbally harassed simply because she is an officer.

The woman making the video is Melyssa Jo Kelly, her profile picture on Facebook says "Stop killing black people."

Kelly can be heard saying, "We got the po-po wearing the black thing on her badge, I guess she is sorry a couple of cops got whacked in Des Moines and she doesn't give a s*** about the man who is in critical care at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics with a bullet in his neck from one of her vicious thug brothers in blue."

The comment is referring to an officer-involved shooting in Cedar Rapids earlier in the month.

Investigators have not yet said whether the man was armed, but they do believe he started some sort of fight with the officer who shot him, the incident however is still very much under investigation.

Kelly continues to cause a scene as another officer comes into the coffee shop.

The officers tells the woman she is trespassing and asks her to leave because the owners of Brewhemia wanted her to.

"How can I fight that unjust discrimination," Kelly can be heard saying when the officer asks her to leave and not come back.

Police eventually escorted her outside but not without another scene, "Don't touch me, Don't touch me," Kelly can be heard screaming.

"I say f*** the police forever more," she adds when she gets outside.

The video has more than 1400 shares on Facebook.

We checked Kelly's criminal record it includes trespassing, interference with  official acts and multiple incidents of disorderly conduct for loud or raucous noise.
