An unidentified woman is led away after allegedly being punched in the face by a Philadelphia police officer.

Footage in which a police officer appears to punch a woman after she threw something toward a group of police is causing controversy on the Internet today. ABC News reports that Philadelphia police are investigating.

The video, which was uploaded to YouTube by user "Gisela Valentin" on Sept. 30, looks to have been taken during Philadelphia's Puerto Rican Day parade on Sunday. In it, about two people in the crowd appear to throw liquid on a group of police officers. But one officer's reaction has drawn criticism and claims of police brutality.

At the beginning of the clip, a woman in a black T-shirt to the left of the frame can be seen throwing what appears to be water or possibly silly string in the direction of a group of officers. Moments later, an officer comes after the woman and appears to punch her in the face without warning. The force of the blow knocks the woman to the ground, where she is quickly handcuffed by the same officer.

The video was posted to Reddit on Monday morning and quickly rose to the front page of the social news site.

Although the initial headline professed the woman's innocence and called the officer's reaction a "sucker punch," closer observation on the part of users revealed that the woman in question looks to have thrown something toward the police.



This action was further clarified by user "_repost_" who made several animated gifs highlighting the woman's actions. Despite the woman's behavior, many Redditors said that the officer's use of force was inappropriate.

The International Digital Times called the incident a "completely and utterly disgusting" case of police brutality.

The woman appears to be bleeding from the mouth as she is led away by police. Her identity has not been released.

That chick messed up getting belted by a black cop. That was a mistake on her part. She'd be a media darling and a civil rights hero right now if she had been smart enough to get a white cop to crack her in the face. Police brutality gets far less press than violent whitey oppression.

Actually looks like she shot silly string at them, and a guy over her back threw water at them...she was shaking the can again and moving in closer for a better shot..when they turned around and she tried to be like..."Im not doing anything" watch the first 3-5 seconds really closely.

She did spray silly string but that was a bs move by the cop. I usually give officers the benefit of the doubt but that was fucked. I could understand if the situation was out of hand

Why don't these people speak English? Seriously I want to know why they can't assimilate. The Irish, Italians, Germans, they learned to speak the language, why can't they?

Really? The Irish?

Another notorious line my immigrated Irish granny used to throw out...

"I've been havin' trouble with these damned foreigners ever since I got here."

Not all of the Irish who came over spoke English. Some of them spoke Gaelic.
