Video Shows Philadelphia Police Officer Grabbing Handcuffed Woman By Hair, Taking Her To Ground
February 7, 2019 at 4:17 pm

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Video of a controversial arrest by Philadelphia police is going viral on social media. When the video started recording, you see an officer holding a handcuffed woman against a police car.

Words between the two were exchanged.

Then, the officer appears to forcefully grab the woman by her nappy hair, kick out her legs, and take her to the ground.

The incident happened on the 2300 block of Colorado Street in South Philadelphia Wednesday afternoon.

The Philadelphia Police Department says the incident is being investigated.

“The Police Department is aware of a video, depicting the arrest of a citizen, which surfaced on social media yesterday,” the department said in a statement. “We take all matters involving the application of force seriously. Accordingly, the incident is being investigated by the Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility/Internal Affairs Division.”

The Fraternal Order of Police says it is aware of the video.

“We’re aware of the incident. It’s currently under investigation and we won’t second-guess officers out in the street doing a difficult job. We’ll have more to say when the investigation is complete,” said union president John McNesby.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.

Pa. cop caught on video pulling handcuffed woman by her hair

In the video, suspect Na-sha Lockett, 18, is pressed against a police cruiser as she repeatedly shouts, "Get the f---k off me." At one point, the officer says, "No" before Lockett shouts, "I'm about to spit on you." That’s when the officer responds physically. (NBC-10 Philadelphia)
