Police officer filmed shoving mum's throat multiple times
The family was Aboriginal and the mother was interfering with the arrest
WARNING, DISTRESSING: An Australian police officer has been filmed repeatedly pushing a woman by her throat, causing her to fall backwards.
Queensland police have been contacted by Yahoo7 for comment on this matter but declined at time of publication.
Loanna King, 17, said police allegedly entered the Boondal home, near Brisbane on Saturday night.
She claimed police barged inside and grabbed her younger brother, 16, while she was inside with her mother.
She said she was told he was being arrested for alleged domestic violence.
Miss King told Daily Mail Australia she had been left with scars on her legs after she was dragged out to the street by officers.
Footage shows her brother being pushed up against a wall while police handcuffed him.
His mother can be heard telling an officer that the boy is her son before she is told to ‘get back’ and is pushed in the shoulder.
Natasha starts to scream ‘that’s my son’ when the same officer shoves her in the throat with quite a bit of force.
Miss King told Daily Mail her two-year-old brother was left alone inside the home during the arrests.
The family was issued with a court order for obstructing police and they were released on to the street about 20 minutes later.
Since the video was shared on Facebook it has sparked outrage with many claiming it was an act of ‘police brutality’ and violence against a woman.
