White Cop and Bystander Hold Down and BEAT Black Woman For JAYWALKING



The video shot by a passing motorist clearly shows a woman crossing the street, when a police officer chases her down. He grabs her by the arm, throws her to the ground and begins beating her in the head and face, even as she is flat on the concrete.

The officer is Caucasian. The woman is African American.

A second Caucasian man rushes over to help the officer to hold the woman down. This bystander decides to hold the woman’s face to the ground as the officer continues to assault her.

In all, the African American woman is hit in the face about a dozen times by the officer.

The incident happened on the Eastbound Interstate 10 Freeway near La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles.

The video recorded by the passing motorists had been posted to YouTube, which promptly removed it ;), saying “This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.”

There is no word from YouTube on why they removed the video when it was clearly not harassing the victim, but was exposing the bullying and harassment she faced by the rogue officer.

California Highway Patrol told local NBC 4 that it, “Would be premature to comment on the video without reviewing the entire incident,” suggesting that police think there may be circumstances under which it is justifiable for a strong, male police officer to beat a woman in the face a dozen times.

David Diaz filmed the assault. He said the woman appeared to be intoxicated or mentally ill.

“No one condones…when he gets on top of a woman, and this is a big officer, and he punches her repeatedly,” Diaz explained, adding, “She could have died out there.”

Another eyewitness recalled that woman was “shoeless, terrified and did not pose a threat.”

That's pretty extreme for jaywalking... even from a racist cop.  Are you sure there's not more to the story?

Apparently there isn't much more to the story... she was on her way off the expressway, and went back in response to something the officer said to her; then the beating started.  It was an off-duty police officer that came to the assistance of the bully.

Needles to say, I hope she sues the pants off the state, and the officer goes to jail, for abuse of power if not attempted murder.

The cop should have stepped back to let the wheelchair pass instead of using his foot as a brake pad. He can't complain about the pain it might have caused him trying to stop the wheelchair that way. ;D.

CHP agrees to settle, officer resigns in beating case

The woman who was captured on cellphone video being beaten by a California Highway Patrol officer on the side of a Los Angeles freeway reached a $1.5 million settlement with the department on Wednesday, according to her attorney.

A California Highway Patrol officer caught on video repeatedly punching a woman on the 10 Freeway earlier this year has agreed to resign, the agency said late Wednesday.

The CHP announced that Officer Daniel Andrew was stepping down and that the state law enforcement agency had agreed to pay $1.5 million to settle a civil rights lawsuit brought by the woman, Marlene Pinnock, 51.

The settlement will establish a special-needs trust for Pinnock to "provide a mechanism for her long-term care," according to a statement released by CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow.

He did not elaborate.

"When this incident occurred, I promised that I would look into it and vowed a swift resolution. Today, we have worked constructively to reach a settlement agreement that is satisfactory to all parties involved," Farrow said in his statement.

Attorneys for Pinnock and Andrew could not be reached for comment late Wednesday.

The settlement comes as Los Angeles prosecutors are deciding whether to charge Andrew with a crime.

Last month, the CHP announced Andrew had been stripped of his duties and could face "potentially serious charges."

The July 1 altercation generated national attention after a video shot by a passing motorist surfaced.

It shows a uniformed CHP officer pinning the woman to the ground and repeatedly punching her, landing at least nine blows.

There has been some dispute about what prompted the altercation. The CHP has said the officer was trying to keep the woman from walking into traffic. CHP logs state she ignored commands and became "physically combative."

But Pinnock said in an interview last month that she did nothing to provoke the officer. Pinnock said she was walking to a place to sleep that night when the officer came up behind her. As Pinnock screamed, she said, he "pulled me back and threw me on the ground."

The officer "just started punching me and socking me and beating me," Pinnock said. "Blow after blow and blow after blow. He just wouldn't stop."

Pinnock was hospitalized after the incident and placed on a mental-health hold.

Andrew joined the CHP as a cadet in April 2012 and was promoted to an officer six months later, officials said.
