AFRICANGLOBE – A disturbing video was uploaded to Twitter showing a cop holding a small woman up off the ground while smashing her against his patrol car. The woman was an innocent school teacher, and the cop was a white supremacist thug.
According to the victim, who looks like a little girl in the video, but is actually a 32-year-old woman named Shadon, she was assaulted for no reason at all. The lack of an arrest in the incident is evidence of this claim.
According to Shadon, she was arguing with a man who was harassing another woman. When officers saw this, they perceived her as a threat. So, without question or just cause, this 250-pound cop tossed this 90-pound woman around like a rag doll.
“It was harassment, and I asked for the police officer’s badge – they wouldn’t give me no names, no numbers or nothing – so I left – I never knew this was being recorded,” Shadon said in an interview with FOX 5.
As soon as the Twitter user, @, posted the video, it quickly went viral sparking outrage toward the DC police department.
After countless tweets at the department, they finally released a statement noting that “We’ve been made aware of this video and have contacted their commanding officer as we investigate this matter.”
The video is nothing short of infuriating, watching the hyper-aggressive police officer dangling this tiny woman over the street. Predictably enough, the officer’s female partner did nothing to stop him, and, instead, opted for putting on her leather gloves — in a likely preparation for more violence.
“Yes, you did. I saw it,” are the only audible words in the video said by the officer.
During the assault, which occurred at a bus stop outside a CVS Pharmacy on 7th Street NW, Shadon informed the officer that she was a teacher at Cleveland Elementary and pointed at the school.
As if to pretend to be helping Shadon, the female police officer asks bystanders if they have a bag for Shadon’s belongings which had been scattered on the road during the assault.
At the end of the senseless assault and literal shakedown, Shadon was sent on her way.
On Tuesday, @MacAndCheeks posted a brief statement from her on Twitter, noting that Shadon would like to thank everyone for spreading the word.
In a time when police and the citizens are at each other’s throats, conduct such as this only serves to justify that animosity. Until this brutal treatment of innocent Black people is brought to a halt, we can only expect that hostility to foster.
