An abortion activist was caught on video kicking a pro-life woman in Toronto, Canada on Sunday. The kick, which comes out of nowhere, is followed by an immediate apology because Mr. Purple Hoodie here only meant to kick her phone and not what looks like a kick that landed near her shoulders or even her head.

WATCH this coward in action:

The man has reportedly been identified and, hopefully, soon-to-be arrested:

The woman who shot the video, Marie-Claire Bissonnette, wrote on that cops didn’t consider it a “serious case of assault”:

A police car arrived, five to ten minutes later. The policemen rolled down their window but did not exit their vehicle.

I approached them and told them I was just assaulted and explained the situation. I showed them the video. They replied, “What do you want us to do about it?”.

As I was on the verge of tears and shaking from the adrenaline, I didn’t know what to say. I asked what my options were, and they replied that I could file a complaint, but warned that I’d have to take him to court, and only if they were able to find him, but given that it wasn’t a “serious case of assault”, he’d be likely to be given probation or less.

I asked if I could file a complaint without going to court and they said no.

Although a second set of officers seem to have been more helpful:

My main concern at the time was that the incident was on file. The officers said the phone call would be on record, but their apparent indifference discouraged me from pursuing the issue further so I told them I would not. Two hours later, I started to feel pain in my shoulder where I’d been kicked and I contacted the police and filed a report with a different set of officers who were significantly more helpful, even offering a trauma support group after they visited my house and saw me still shaking with eyes red from crying. The police are still looking for my attacker and he has yet to be identified.
