Cop Slams Handcuffed Teen Girl Face on Ground and Loses Teeth

Warning: This Video is Brutal!

Video has emerged of yet another police officer violently slamming a handcuffed suspect face-first, a teenage girl, into the ground.

Colorado Springs police officer brutally trowed a handcuffed 18-year-old girl to the hospital floor, smashing her face against the floor. She was thrown so hard that it knocked her teeth out.

I understand an officers job is stressful, but is the modern iteration of the "peace officer" psychologically qualified to handle the duty? Episodes that acutely parallel (at least reminiscent of) Soviet-era Gulag behavior seems to be increasing.










Police spokeswoman Lt. Catherine Buckley said she could not comment on the matter because of the civil litigation and an internal investigation.

Conflicting police reports say Walker either "escorted her to the floor," or that he "rolled her ... to the floor."

But Acker was more than "escorted" or "rolled" — as her two broken teeth and lingering health problems attest. The episode was captured on video:





She said the officer (Tyler Walker) is still on the force.

Acker, then 18, had been arrested on charges of interfering with officers who were arresting her boyfriend. She was taken to a hospital but it was unclear why.



Hospital surveillance video shows an officer pushing a woman into a chair and the woman then kicking at him.



According to the Daily Beast, William claims Acker yelled: "I hope you and your wife can never have any children… because you're a stupid f***ing cop."

In a police report, Walker said Acker kicked him in the groin.

Intense: The video then shows the officer, who is 6-foot-3 and about 210 pounds, lifting the 5-foot-4, 110-pound teen out of the chair and slamming her to the floor
In a police report, Walker said Acker kicked him in the groin.
Defense attorney Cindy Hyatt disputed that, saying Acker kicked something Walker was holding, possibly a computer.
"There's no way she kicked him that hard in the balls," Hyatt told the Colorado Springs Independent. 'He wouldn't be standing. He'd be hunched over.'
The video then shows the officer, who is 6-foot-3 and about 210 pounds, and lifting the 5-foot-4, 110-pound woman out of the chair and slamming her to the floor.
"It was then evident that I had caused her injury and knocked out her front tooth while throwing her on to the hard linoleum hospital floor, while her hands [were] still handcuffed behind her back," he wrote in his report.


What would justify slamming a 100 lbs, handcuffed girl's face to the ground? Are today's cops psychologically qualified for the job? This type of slamming take-down has been known to kill, a fact that should have been taken into account against a defenseless 100 pound girl.
