Cop Punches Handicapped Woman in the Face On a Bus [Video]

Seriously? The video below was taken on board a Los Angeles bus. It shows a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputy getting into a verbal confrontation with a woman and when she tries to walk past him he punches her in the face.

There was more than one witness to the altercation but there was one man who was brave enough to video tape the incident. Jermaine Green, who taped the incident on his cellphone, said that after the cop punched the woman in the face he came up to Green and told him to give up his cell phone or face arrest.

Green told NBC-LA,

“He said to me look you could be under arrest if you don’t give me that video, do you have any warrants?”

Green told the story of the woman who got on the bus with a shopping cart filled with pillows. At the next stop the two sheriff’s deputies got on and tried to remove the woman and they got into a verbal confrontation. Greene said it was obvious the woman had “special needs”. At one point the woman tries to move past the cop and he throws a right hook at her face, smashing her off balance.

The tape ends with her being restrained on a seat.

The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office said the woman was restrained because she had acted aggressively towards the officer.

The woman has previous arrests for assault and assault on a police officer.

Do you think the officer had a right to punch a mentally handicapped woman in the face?
