Earlier this week a highway patrol "officer" was video taped tackling a grandmother at the La Brea on ramp to the 10 fwy. in L.A. and beating her in the head, brutally and REPEATEDLY, closed fisted, while she showed no resistance whatsoever. Another "off duty" cop jumps in, restricting her during the assault. And the only "offense" she could have committed was "not wearing shoes". This SICK, inexcusable, unacceptable behavior was DEFENDED by a department "spokesperson". Folks, we have a SEVERE problem here. It was CLEAR in the video, that this "old woman" did NOTHING to provoke this assault and battery on her person. Police are not allowed to strike people during an arrest, the Nazi's did that and were condemned for it. US police are no better than the Gestapo were during WWII.
