Tampa Police Surround Woman After She Was Kneeled on by Officer

A protester who was kneeled on by a police officer in Tampa, Florida, was filmed lying on the ground surrounded by police while onlookers tried to check on her welfare on August 12.

“There’s a f***ing medic right here,” someone is heard saying in this footage. “Let her right in!”

In another video from the same location, an officer can be seen with one knee on the woman. “Stop, stop, stop, get your knee off her neck,” a voice can be heard saying in the other video.
