police officer punches psychiatric patient in face

Article and footage is here. Cop grabs woman’s arm forcefully; she hits his upper arm; he violently punches her, close-fisted, in the face. Other cops join in to subdue.

My sympathies go to the woman. People have a right not to be touched by strangers. Grabbing the woman’s arm was unnecessary and provocative.

Regarding the question to the owner of the institution as to whether patients are tied to their beds and drugged with sedatives, he immediately claims he doesn’t have time to answer the question and terminates the interview.
