Eyewitness have come forward after seeing a transwoman assaulted in Soho by police. Although this video may not show explicit police brutality apparently there was much more happening since numerous complaints have been filed. A crowd estimated at 100 people gathered and begun yelling for the police to stop after they knocked her wig off, tore her purse from her scattering the contents, pounding her head into the pavement while they stood on her twisting her arms behind her back shouting at her she wasn’t ‘normal’.
Gay star News reports that ‘Three huge officers violently pushed the trans in question against a window, immediately hand cuffing her with extreme force.
‘The victim then had her wig ripped from her head, her handbag and purse literally emptied out on the road, so her personal belongings were damaged and scattered around her.
‘Meanwhile police officers mocked her for her dress and having feminine items items in her handbag shouting at her: “You’re not normal! We’ll let you get you up in a few minutes but you need to act like a normal human being.”
