    According to Belgian daily Le Libre, the demonstration in tribute to the deceased Ibrahima in Brussels which gave way to riots and scenes of extreme violence, including stoning the car of the King of Belgium, has traumatized at least one police officer. Among the videos disseminated that evening, a policewoman was seen being kicked while she is still on the ground.

    The female police officer had to be hospitalized because she showed signs of paralysis. The day after her attack, the officer recounted the events to our colleagues from Nieuwsblad. “I have just gotten out of the hospital. Last night the tingling sensation in my legs disappeared. I still have pain all over but the pain medication relieves it. I am covered in bruises, but I will probably make a full recovery.”

    The officer, named Kelly, is the mother of a little 9-year-old boy. She was called in for backup after she had finished her service after incidents in progress in Schaerbeek [district of Brussels]. The policewoman explained that a group of African rioters rushed her and her colleagues as they were trying to secure a street. She lost her balance and wound up on the ground. Then she was kicked in the stomach and face.

    “Suddenly, I heard a man scream. He asked them to stop and told them that I was a woman, not a man. It was a resident of the district. […] He saved me from these young men by intervening. My colleagues were able to get rid of the attackers and immediately took me under their wing. I am very grateful to this man and to my colleagues. If I hadn’t been wearing my robocop protective clothing, I probably wouldn’t have survived,” she said.

    Following these events, during which 15 police officers were injured in total, Kelly explained that she has lost all of her motivation. She has asked herself if she still wanted to be a police officer in Brussels, a city where respect for the uniform has been lost, according to her.

    “The prosecutor’s office doesn’t pursue these cases, and the judges mete out ridiculous punishments. We are not supported. The motivation may still be there, but more than ever, we have the impression of being alone, abandoned by politics and justice. This demonstration should never have been authorized,” she lamented.
