NAN NYC Chapter Slams NYPD for Violent Police Attack on Woman in Central Harlem

Aug 31, 2022

New York, NY (Wednesday, August 31, 2022) – New York City leadership of the National Action Network (NAN) will condemn the NYPD outside the 32nd Precinct this afternoon after a police officer brazenly punched an unarmed woman to the ground.

The woman is seen in cellphone video yesterday rushing to a man being detained by several officers. Moments later she’s seen being aggressively shoved by the officer, identified by his badge number as Kendo Kinsey. After the woman goes to defend herself, Kinsey throws a second blow that quickly knocked her to the ground. Kinsey and another officer are then seen picking her up and putting her arms behind her back. Records now public under a landmark 2020 law show Kinsey has had at least six complaints in the last 11 years, two of which have been substantiated.
