Texas Cop Slam Drunken Woman Unconscious After Resisting Arrest
Another day, another citizen assaulted by the state…
A Texas cop threw a drunken woman to the ground, knocking her unconscious when her head hit the pavement, as the DWI suspect’s daughter screamed “mommy, mommy!” and ran over to help, according to witnesses and cell phone video.
The violent takedown stunned bystanders outside a Round Rock strip mall, though the city’s police chief, who had seen patrol car dash camera footage of the incident, defended Officer Ben Johnson.
Police say Viviana Keith, who was clearly intoxicated in multiple public places and then drove drunk with her 6-year-old daughter in the car, was resisting arrest.
“The officer was very professional, was talking to her calm, he wasn’t excited, he wasn’t angry,” Banks told KVUE-TV. “It’s unfortunate, the fact that this lady did what appears to hit her head and was knocked unconscious, but I’ll tell you, the officer did what he was supposed to do in a situation like that.”
THAT’S what he “was supposed to do”?! Knock a woman unconscious in front her daughter???
