VIDEO: Pregnant woman slammed onto street by NYPD cop in Sunset Park

SUNSET PARK, Brooklyn (PIX11) – The video captured over the weekend on 5th Avenue in Sunset Park is extremely disturbing.

A pregnant woman is seen being thrown down to the ground by an NYPD officer.

Another look at the disturbing video in slow motion shows the woman — who is six months pregnant — not only landing on her stomach, but she and her developing child having to absorb the weight of a police officer on top of her as well.

Authorities say police were attempting to apprehend a man who was possibly in possession of a gravity knife when several family members, which included the pregnant woman, tried to intervene.

Denis Flores is the founder of the El Grito de Sunset Park, an advocacy group that brings attention to what he describes as controversial tactics of the NYPD.

This kind of violence against regular people has been normalized - if you do not fear cops these days, you are not paying enough attention!
