A mentally challenged woman was slapped around by a police officer, despite the fact that she showed no signs of being violent. The scene, which took place in a Los Angeles bus, was recorded by a eyewitness, Jermaine Green, a war veteran.
Green later said that the police officers asked him not to release the video recording.
A representative of the L.A.P.D. said that the officers approached the women because they were notified that the woman was close to attacking a old man.
The woman has a criminal record, and she assaulted a police officer in the past.
This case is widely debated on social networks and many Americans claim that the scene is a clear example of police brutality, especially since the woman is mentally challenged.
