Brutal cop kicks woman in head
A SHOCKING video of a cop brutally kicking a handcuffed female protester in the head has emerged on the internet.
Note that this footage shows the incident in slow motion - a real-speed version can be seen here.
Reports Keep Talking Greece: "A group of Indignados made up of protestors from several European countries arrived in Brussels last week after walking the 1562km from Madrid.
"Wednesday’s incident happened during an otherwise peaceful demonstration in front of the headquarters of the bank Dexia on the Rogierplein in the Sint-Joost-ten-Node area of the city."
The woman, who is Greek, was interviewed by the authorities after the video surfaced and the cop has been suspended.
The point to remember here is that protesting peacefully does not mean police will not physically attack you - in fact, for some of them the reverse is true.
