CENTRAL JAVA, INDONESIA — A cop can be seen smacking a woman so hard she seemingly falls unconscious in viral footage coming out of Indonesia.
According to Coconuts Jakarta, the Central Java Police officer, identified as only as Riyanto, didn't like what the lady was wearing, so he became mad and got physical. To make things worse, she's his niece.
According to Coconuts Jakarta, the cops were told about Riyanto's behavior, but said his victim, yes the woman he slapped unconscious, embarrasses her mother and that uncle Riyanto was "asked to keep an eye out on the victim, who consistently shames the family. She often dressed inappropriately vulgar."
They also went on to try to justify the action by saying the woman has mental issues as her husband left her some time ago and that she frequently drinks and dances in the street. But they did concede that police officers shouldn't do things like beat people for what they're wearing. Jeez, aren't Central Java Police nice?
Officer Riyanto did apologize, and Coconuts Jakarta reports he won't be charged but sanctioned internally by the police.
