Not only are police brutally attacking African-American men, they're attacking African-American women as well.
A Chicago police officer is being investigated for allegedly punching a woman, 8 months pregnant, in the stomach. The woman, Nicola Robinson, told a local reporter that she was assaulted by the officer for simply laughing at his expense.
The officer had been chasing a suspected drug dealer on foot and when the suspect escaped, Robinson laughed. According to her, this angered the cop. Robinson told the reporter,
“As I got ready to walk in my building he punched me on my right side as hard as he can. After he punched me, he presumed to say 'You black bitch, you better be glad I didn't hit you hard enough to make you lose your fucking baby."
Robinson spent five hours in the hospital before being given the all-clear. She and her unborn child will be okay.
Luckily, the attack was caught on the surveillance camera of a neighboring building. Hopefully it will be enough proof for the Chicago PD's Independent Police Review Authority to prosecute the offending officer.
