Although the video is just over a year old, it’s still very much relevant when it comes to showing the Rochester, NY Police department’s history of abusing citizens, and, very disturbing to watch.

The video starts off with a young, pregnant woman being restrained by three Rochester Police officers in front a Chili Avenue grocery store.
An RPD officer then yells at the young woman’s mother “I don’t care how old she is!”
While it is not clear what led up to the incident, what is clear is what happens at the 30 second mark of the video.
Shortly after a voice off camera is heard telling the woman’s mother “They’re not supposed to be doing that to your daughter!”, a Rochester Police officer is seen kneeing the young woman in her stomach.
One would think that the last thing Rochester, NY Police officers would be taught in the police academy, would be to assault a pregnant woman, especially by delivering a blow to her womb, where her unborn fetus is growing, REGARDLESS OF THE SITUATION.
Apparently, RPD officers are taught to do whatever they have to do, to restrain an individual, even kneeing a pregnant woman.
After all, what can you expect from a police force, and a Chief, who condones assaulting a disabled man in a motorized wheelchair, like Rochester Police officers did to Rochester, NY resident Benny Warr last week.
