The cop was later fired and a tape later emerged from the next room where you can hear the cop throwing her into a filing cabinet, which the victim verifies. Police, however, did not press charges due to “lack of evidence” as to what happened…even though you can clearly see the victim bleeding from the face after being thrown into a wall on tape by a man who clearly outweighs her and did not need to use such force.
