A violent cop is off the streets (for now) after being caught on video kicking a surrendering man, who was not resisting at all, in the face. To illustrate just how terrible police accountability actually is in this country — this was the officer’s second time being caught on video kicking a non-violent person.

According to the NY Daily News, “An ex-Minneapolis cop was charged in a brutal kicking assault that left a 35-year-old man with a traumatic brain injury, and a video of the assault contradicts his narrative of what happened.” Christopher Reiter, while responding to a domestic assault call, kicked Mohammed Osman in the head, breaking his nose and reportedly causing traumatic brain injury.

Karate kicks and offensive strikes using any part of the foot or lower leg to attack an opponent are sometimes justified in the line of duty to subdue an unruly suspect. But in Osman’s case, Officer Reiter cannot say the suspect was fighting with him or even attempting to flee. Osman, upon seeing a gaggle of cops headed his way, with guns drawn, simply dropped to the ground on all fours, on his hands and knees, and waited for the officers to arrest him. It was in that very vulnerable, indefensible position, that officer Reiter chose to deliver a knockout Karate kick to the domestic violence suspect’s head.

The Star Tribune reports Reiter has been charged with a 3rd-degree felony for kicking the downed man. While the attack happened May 30th, 2016, it wasn’t until March 15th of 2017 that the officer was charged with the heinous crime.
