Outrageous Female Cop Beaten After Refusing to Shoot Suspect Due to Fear of Backlash
Disturbing dash cam and body cam videos released Friday by the Chicago Police Department show a suspect beating and slamming a female officer to the street, reportedly knocking her unconscious.
WMAQ reported that the unnamed officer - who suffered a concussion, bone chips in her shoulder and wrist and neck injuries - was afraid to shoot the man because she feared community backlash.
"She knew that she should shoot this guy,” Superintendent Eddie Johnson told WMAQ. “But she chose not to because she didn’t want her family or the department to have to go through the scrutiny the next day."
Videos of the October 5 incident show officers attempting to arrest 28-year-old Parta Huff after he allegedly crashed his vehicle into a liquor store.
The female officer is seen cuffing Huff's wrist and struggling with him to cuff the other wrist.
Huff is seen falling on top of the officer, and that's when he allegedly punched her multiple times.
