Salt Lake City Police have been forced to release footage of an officer punching a woman in the face in front of her daughter. Then they arrested her for public intoxication… while she was at home. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“A body camera video was submitted to the Free Thought Project this week showing a horrifying case of police brutality. In the video, Michelle Siguenza is brutally attacked by an unnamed officer as her 9-year-old daughter screams in terror.

The Free Thought Project spoke to Siguenza’s oldest daughter, Jasmine Anderson, 22, who tells us the police were arresting her mother for public intoxication — at her own house. The incident happened on October 24, 2014, however, police refused to release the body camera footage until this week, according to Anderson…

After police placed cuffs on Siguenza, she peacefully stands by waiting for them to tell her what to do. As the officer wearing the body camera is grabbing the little girl’s toys from the hood of the car, his focus then quickly shifts to Siguenza who apparently spit on him.

The next sound we hear is the officer’s fist smashing into the handcuffed woman’s face. As Siguenza falls to the ground the officer smashes her face to the ground while apparently delivering knee strikes.”*
