That woman was not launging at the cop, she was clearly walking away and her body language showed she was confused. Anyway, the cop grabbed her by the wrist holding the knife within first few seconds. That makes her pretty much disarmed. Anything after that, and especially a slam to the ground, is excessive force in this case. This wasn't some 300lb gangsta. All she had to do is raise her arm up or twist it back and pry the knife loose just like they did after she was lying on the ground. Smashing her head on the pavement was unnecessary. This sick cop was clearly either showing off or getting some pent up agression and rage out of her system - who to better do it to than a frail 90-year old woman....what a hero that cop is, I bet she even got a commendation for saving all the fat kids from the walmart parking lot - they clearly looked petrified at the beginning of the video, yay applause for the police heroes!
