Cell phone video that show a woman being struck by a police officer at the Festival de la Americas following the Philadelphia Puerto Rican Day Parade is getting thousands of views on YouTube and is generating comments and questions about the officer’s actions.
The video shows several police officers at Sunday’s festival and a crowd of people. The woman, identified as Aida Guzman of Chester, Pa., is hit by one of the officers and falls to the ground.
“You only see one vantage point, but what you do see is disturbing, I have to be honest about that” said Deputy Police Commissioner Richard Ross.
The incident happened near 5th and Lehigh streets in North Philadelphia, after the parade on the Parkway. Parade organizers say they had nothing to do with the North Philadelphia event. Officials say Guzman was spraying silly string at officers involved in a traffic stop.
“The guy was out there spinning wheels and burning up tires in the middle of the highway, which is not normal. And we’re out there to make sure that stopped. As we’re doing it, things are being thrown, liquids are being tossed, substances being sprayed from a can” says Fraternal Order of Police president John McNesby.
