Cop Viciously Smashes Woman’s Face Into a Table Over Reports of ‘Yelling’ As Her 8-Year-Old Watches

A Winnipeg woman has filed a complaint after an officer brutally beat her in her own home while her 8-year-old son watched.

Lana Sinclair tells CBC that police officers arrived on Halloween after reports of “yelling.”

She says one of the officers “came up to me and poked me. I was sitting on a chair in the kitchen and I jumped and said you don’t need to touch me.”

That’s when she says the officer took offense, pulled out his baton, and hit her with it before smashing her face into the floor and into a work table.

“He had my arm behind me and he smashed my face,” Sinclair said.

The officer then allegedly handcuffed her, stood her up, and kicked her feet out from under her, causing her to fall to the floor and hit her face.

“[My son and I] were both traumatized,” Sinclair said. “I just hug and kiss him and tell him it’s okay. All I was thinking of was his safety, and how he was going to be traumatized and how he is going to see the police now.”

She has submitted an official complaint to Canada’s Law Enforcement Review Agency though Raw Story notes that only six of the hundreds of cases filed last year qualified for a hearing.
