The police officer seen on video punching a woman at a Philadelphia street party has been suspended for 30 days beginning Thursday with the intent to dismiss.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey took what police call 'commissioner's direct action' on Wednesday in the case of Highway Patrol Lt Jonathan D. Josey II, 40, following Sunday's events during a festival associated with the city's Puerto Rican Day parade.
