Policeman hits a woman - level 1

Policeman hits a woman - level 1

18-03-2014 15:00

A woman is sitting in a chair. She is in the back of a shopping centre. She is probably a shoplifter. This happens in London.

A policeman is with her. The policeman pulls her hair. The woman falls on the ground. The policeman hits her three times. Everything is filmed by a security camera.

The policeman is guilty. He cannot be a policeman anymore. He must pay £560.

Difficult words: shoplifter (person who takes things from a shop without paying for them), pull (move her hair to hurt her), guilty (he did something bad).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you know any policeman?
