WATCH: Cop Caught on Tape Beating Great-Grandmother’s Face

On Tuesday, July 1, a 51-year-old woman was walking barefoot up the side of California’s Interstate 10 when suddenly she crossed the crowded highway. That’s when a California Highway Patrol officer confronted her, ending up on top of her and punching her face repeatedly.

The incident was caught in the raw video above, which shows the officer — who hasn’t been named — delivering several hard rights to the face of Marlene Pinnock, later identified as a great-grandmother.

Although the officer has been suspended pending an investigation, below you can hear California Highway Patrol Assistant Chief Chris O’Quinn saying that the officer was protecting Pinnock, who was deemed a danger to herself and motorists.

Pinnock has been admitted to a psychiatric facility, where she is undergoing an evaluation and recovering from the multiple “lumps” that her lawyer said were given to her during the beatdown.

CNN reports that Pinnock’s family plans to sue the police agency.

This video is as unbelievable as the comment below. My only hope is that the racism that brought on the comment about her and what age she became a grandmother and the racism that is obviously deeply embedded in the heart and mind of the officer will one day GO AWAY!

California is such a beautiful place to live and to see something like this really puts things in perspective as to what is allowed in the State.

WAKE UP AND FIRE HIM ASAP!

The TRUTH is not racist. Savagely attacking people & beating & murdering them based on the color of their skin IS & BLACKS DO IT & GET AWAY WITH IT EVERY DAY in this country. CA. is an ELITIST playground & a 3rd world $hithole. You can shove it up your brain dead c u nt & quit LEECHING off of the rest of us.

Alfredo if you are white you don’t know what black people went through. Remember when slavery and segregation was here we had no rights then so what are you talking about.

Black people do not get away with ANYTHING in America, you dumb f*ck.
If it was the case, 40% of the prison population wouldn’t be black.

The only way to handle mentally unstable people is to assault them? Do we live in the same century? Because human rights don’t exist for them ? Because they’re sick, they’re not human any more?
