A barefoot woman described as harmless was subdued and pummeled by a California Highway Patrol officer in an incident captured on video. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) is investigating the incident, which occurred on Tuesday in Los Angeles.I have no doubt the CHP will investigate the incident with all of the justice and impartiality shown by every other police department when investigating its officers.
Video shot from a by-passing car shows the CHP officer chasing the woman on foot through traffic. In the video, the officer catches up to the woman from behind, spins her around and takes her to the ground. The pair struggled, but the officer ends up on top. From that position, he begins punching her rapidly in the head.
“He is beating her up, yo,” a man filming the incident is heard saying.
“Oh my gosh, why?” a woman asks....
“No one condones when he gets on top of a woman, and this is a big officer, and he punches her repeatedly,” Diaz said. “I think he punched her in the head 15 times.”
