Disturbing new video showing a police officer in US state of Michigan, hacking off the hair weave of a young woman arrested in November is stirring controversy on social media.
In the video, Charda Gregory, 23, of Detroit is tied in a restraining chair by four officers in Warren, Michigan, before a female officer rips and cuts at her long braids. Gregory appears to protest and react physically, but the officer doesn’t stop until the entire weave is removed from her head.
Gregory was arrested for allegedly damaging a motel room and police car in suburban Detroit, but charges against her were dropped.
Police Officer Bernadette Najor, who administered the violent haircut, said she did so because weaves pose a suicide risk,. Najor was suspended and later fired.
