Video of female officer being assaulted by male colleague is a play. A police spokesperson has urged the public to stop sharing the video. According to Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo, the police were simply being trained on the Domestic Violence Act (DVA) and what looks like the male officer hitting his female counterpart is just an act.
A video of what appears to be a male police officer assaulting a female colleague in full view of his other coworkers has gone viral, but a South African Police Service (Saps) spokesperson has urged the public to stop sharing it.
“The video circulating on social media in which a policeman appears to be assaulting a policewoman is, in fact, a domestic violence act (DVA) class. Please do not continue posting the video without the proper facts,” he said.
The video has gained a lot of traction on both Facebook – where the version above already has over half a million views – and on Twitter, where popular account @PigSpotter, known for his tweets with information on Gauteng roadblocks and traffic in which police are often referred to as pigs, appears to have jumped to conclusions regarding whether the video actually shows an assault on a female officer.
So this video just emerged… SAPS 'man' assaults a female colleague, whilst other members looked on and did nothing. This piece of trash pig needs to be arrested, charged with assault and thrown into jail. #SAPSAssault @SAPoliceService Do you condone this? Sort out your members. pic.twitter.com/Z8EhrrRM1H

Many of @PigSpotter’s followers, however, were quick to express their view that the alleged assault supposedly depicted in the clip did not look real.
Some even guessed that the police appeared to be involved in some kind of training. According to the police, they were correct.
And you're blind, look at his left hand at impact. If you're always looking for trouble you'll see it even its not there, this looks like a re-enactment or something of the sort.
