May 31 2008 Yonkers,
A 44-year-old home health aide has filed a $11.3 million federal civil rights lawsuit against Yonkers police, claiming she was knocked unconscious by an officer who slammed her to the ground after a restaurant melee.
The takedown, captured on surveillance video at La Fonda restaurant on March 3, 2007, left Irma Marquez of Yonkers hospitalized with a fractured jaw, concussion, two black eyes and facial lacerations along with other bruising, according to her lawyers.
She was accosted by police when she leaned over to get a better view of the medical assistance being provided to her niece, who had been struck by someone else at the restaurant, the lawyers claim in a complaint filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court against 10 Yonkers police officers, the Police Department and the city.

But lately I feel that they ARE getting more violent, and the frequency with which we hear of this is growing dramatically. It seems that they are much quicker to use force and the measure of the force they are using is increasingly violent in nature. At times you can literally feel the rage coming from the police. I'm not sure what they have to be so pissed off about but this undertone of rage is unmistakable.
3. For no reason, that obviously drunk woman in a bar starts to hit another police officer police officer multiple times.
