An armed police officer has been captured on video wrestling with, and ruthlessly assaulting a woman in a bank despite the mother holding a little child in her arm.
The circumstances surrounding the assault are not immediately known but the muscled officer is seen ferociously hitting the helpless woman with an umbrella and then repeatedly punching and slapping her in the face as though he were in a boxing duel with a worthy opponent.
Despite the punches and slaps, the poor woman held on tightly to her child until a man in the bank wrenched the baby out of her grip so the child could be taken out of harm’s way.
The officer did not give the slightest thought to the risk of his gun, slaps and blows hitting the little child in the melee but kept punching the woman with careless abandon.
But for the exit of the mother through the bank door, the officer had readied the butt of his gun to hit her face.
