Trial begins for officer who threw handcuffed woman to ground

A disturbing video showing a Calgary police officer slamming a handcuffed woman into the ground face-first has been released by a judge at the constable's trial.

Const. Alex Dunn is on trial on a charge of assault causing bodily harm stemming from an arrest in 2017.

Dalia Kafi, who is Black and was 26 years old at the time, had been arrested on the accusation she breached a court-ordered curfew. She was at the CPS arrest processing unit when she was taken to the ground in what one 30-year officer says was the "worst use of force" he'd ever seen.
