Sickening video has emerged of yet another police officer violently slamming a handcuffed suspect face-first into the ground.
The footage shows Colorado Springs officer Tyler Walker ramming 18-year-old Alexis Acker into the concrete floor while the girl was already restrained.
The police reports, claim that Walker “escorted her to the floor,” or that he “rolled her to the floor.”
Indeed, the officer “escorted” Acker to the floor with such force that her front teeth were smashed in and permanent injuries were caused, including trauma to the face, head, teeth and jaw; migraine headaches, concussion, closed head injuries, memory and cognitive function problems, as well as post traumatic stress disorder.
The incident occurred in late 2013. The video has just been released as part of a $500,000 brutality lawsuit against the CSPD.
Acker had been arrested on charges of resisting arrest and assault on a police officer, with cops claiming that she was “intoxicated and verbally uncooperative with police,” during an attempted arrest of her boyfriend.
The cops delivered Acker to the hospital so doctors could grant “medical clearance” for her to be taken to jail, according to the police report. It was in the hospital where the footage was captured.
The officer is seen slamming Acker to the ground after she kicked out at him when he ordered her to sit down.
While it is clear that the very slight teenage girl did not in any way harm Walker, who is 100 pounds heavier than her, he alleged that she “kicked him in the groin area” and that he felt “immediate pain”.
Walker wrote in his report that “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,”
Furthermore, the officer claimed that while throwing the girl to the floor, he suffered an injury to his left knee. Walker was later advised of his rights as a victim by the police department,
Walker’s supervisor, Sgt. Mary Walsh, did not personally witness the incident, yet bizarrely claimed that the officer “rolled her out of the chair to the floor” — his “only means to control her.” She also claimed that a hospital employee and security guard verified that “the force was necessary and justified to control Alexis.”
Acker was charged with five offenses, which included two felony assaults on a police officer.
Her attorney, Cindy Hyatt, told reporters that “There’s no way she kicked him that hard in the balls. He wouldn’t be standing. He’d be hunched over.”
“This is a very violent attack on someone who is in handcuffs, who is partially restrained and tiny, and there’s just no need for it,” Hyatt added. “You can’t have something like this, whether it happens 100 times, 10 times or one time. It’s unacceptable. It cannot be tolerated. As a patrol officer in particular, that’s part of the job, dealing with that without planting someone’s face in the floor.”
CSPD has refused to confirm whether Walker has been disciplined, but he remains on the force.
As InfoWars has noted, there have recently been a number of disturbing cases of exactly this type of force being used by police across the country.
Indeed, there are so many cases of this type of take down occurring, often when the subject is handcuffed, some ending in paralysis or even death. It is clear that cops are being trained to deal with subjects in this manner.
