VANCOUVER - A Vancouver police officer has apologized after he was caught on video pushing a woman with multiple sclerosis down to the ground in the one of the country's poorest neighbourhoods.
The 65-second video was uploaded to the web Thursday by the B.C. Civil Liberties Association.
It shows the 26-year-old disabled woman trying to weave her way through three male officers on a busy Downtown Eastside street last month.
One of the officers then appears to shove the woman to the ground, before walking away. The two other officers do not intervene.
"I was walking home and I reached my hand up because I was trying to get through … but the tall guy pushed me down because they thought I was grabbing their gun because I touched the belt," she said.

The officer committed Battery on a civilian, and he is still on the job pending an investigation? Why is he not behind bars pending an investigation like any normal civilian would be. As a matter of fact, as he is a police officer, is armed, and should know the law better then anyone else, his charges should be ramped up to the next higher level of Aggravated Battery.
