2 Atlanta Cops SUSPENDED After KICKING Handcuffed Woman With MENTAL Health Issues In THE HEAD!!
Two Atlanta cops have been put on leave after being filmed kicking a woman said to have mental health problems in the head as she lay on the ground handcuffed during an arrest.
The incident took place Monday afternoon when police were called to an apartment in Summerhill, Atlanta, for a domestic incident, according to Atlanta Uncensored, which posted the footage online.
The Instagram account said the woman was kicked in the face by one of the cops after she spat on his boots and pants while lying with her hands cuffed behind her back.
The footage has sparked outrage online while the witness who filmed it said it only captures one of several times the woman was kicked by the officers.
The seven-second video shows the woman lying face down on the ground next to some parked cars with two cops - one male and one female - standing over her.
The woman, who is partially undressed, raises her head in the direction of the male cop who then kicks her in the head with his right foot.
A gasp is heard in the footage as his boot strikes the woman's face.
The female officer does not appear to react or make any attempt to stop the incident.
A third officer is then seen coming around the side of the patrol car to the scene when the footage ends.
