Montrealer appeals 'ridiculous decision' to dismiss complaint against police officers who broke her arm

A woman whose arm was broken by Montreal police five years ago says she is appealing after the Quebec's police ethics commission dismissed her complaint.

Majiza Philip was arrested outside the Olympia Theatre in November 2014 after tapping on the window of a police cruiser to get the attention of a friend inside.

She said one of the four officers forcibly restrained her, breaking her arm in the process.

She was charged with assaulting two police officers and obstruction of justice, but was acquitted in 2017 after the judge found the officers' testimonies to be inconsistent.
