A disturbing video of a woman’s arrest over a curfew violation was released . It shows Dalia Kafi, 26 years old at the time, in handcuffs and standing against a wall before being savagely attacked by officer Alex Dunn, who threw her down with force, her head bounced off the concrete floor.
The incident unfolded on Dec. 12, 2017, when Kafi realized she was be out past her court-ordered curfew. Kafi allowed to be outside of her home from the hours of 10:00 p.m. to 6 a.m. Realizing getting her curfew, Kali asked to drive her home.
On the way home, however, Kafi’s friend was targeted for extortion by officer Dunn when she turned right during a . Dunn had no reason to even question the Kafi as she was the passenger vehicle and had not been suspected of committing . However, he did anyway.
Not jail for being out past curfew, Kafi originally gave police her sister’s name but eventually caved and gave officer Dunn her name. She was immediately arrested to jail for violating curfew.
While being processed into the jail, Kafi was told against the wall complied. During the photo, however, Dunn decided — with extreme prejudice — which was around Kafi’s hair.
After violently yanking at the handcuffed woman’s head several times, Kafi seen “shrinking away” in frustration. Staff Sgt. Gordon Macdonald, who was the at the APU described Kafi as “flinching back.”
Pulling back from someone who is violently yanking at your head natural reaction. However, Dunn took it as justification for near-deadly violence and used a “judo-style throw” woman down.
The subsequent slam shattered Kafi’s face, breaking her nose and gashing open her lip as her head bounced off the steel wall the concrete floor. Kafi had harmed , yet for being out minutes after curfew, she was violently attacked by police and left badly injured.
Kafi was left dazed on , pool of her own blood as other officers rushed in on her.
In a rare move, Staff Sgt. Macdonald, who witnessed the incident, turned in his fellow officer, calling it the “worst use of force” he’s ever seen. As a result, Dunn was charged and is now — which is why the video was released.
“There’s sound when somebody’s bone hits and that’s what I heard,” Macdonald said in court.
After the attack, Kafi was taken to the hospital. As CBC reports, normally, the arresting officer accompanies an arrestee to the hospital, but Macdonald felt it wasn’t appropriate for the constable to be in Kafi’s presence.
“I advised him that the worst use of force that I had seen,” said Macdonald.
Upon arriving at the hospital, Kafi had to receive stitches and surgery to repair her face.
Despite the attack caught on video, and despite that Dunn was charged with assault causing bodily harm for attacking Kafi, this officer was suspended with a year and has since been brought back for an administrative role. He was never fired.
This is problem among police not only but in Canada . The department said only complete its internal investigation, after the trial, determine only then if Dunn’s use of force was considered reasonable.
The fact that the video below exists and Dunn remains on the kick teeth to justice.
