Video Shows Police Officer in Canada Punching Elderly Black Man as Wife Screams Nearby
Video footage shared to Twitter appears to show police in the greater Toronto area detaining a black couple outside a hospital as one officer repeatedly punches the husband, who can be heard screaming “murder.”
The video clip, filmed by an eyewitness to the October 2018 incident, was posted to Twitter on Monday morning by journalist Muhammad Lila. Security footage also shared by Lila shows that the couple, Livingston Jeffers and Pamelia Jeffers who were both in their late 60s when the incident took place, were detained by police after they left the hospital.
