CHP are the worst.
Hopefully she fought the ticket. Not only was his reasoning wrong, he has to prove she was going at an unsafe speed for that area and time it occurred. She could have been going 50 in a 45 here in California and he still would need to prove she was at an unsafe speed.

Wow. I like that part of the law.

I swear some of these speed limits are absurdly low to the point of obviously being revenue traps.

Ugh... another a-hole cop thread.

The department said they wont make a comment until the know the full details. Which is a dick thing to say, because it presumes that there is a possible situation where this kind of behavior from a police officer is acceptable.

A possible solution

Quote:
Take the city of Rialto, California, for instance. In February 2012, the city’s 70 police officers had to take part in a controlled study, obligating them to wear a tiny camera that filmed all their interactions with the public. The results were incredible: In the first year of the cameras’ introduction, complaints against Rialto police officers fell by 88%, while use of force by officers fell by almost 60%.

“When you put a camera on a police officer, they tend to behave a little better, follow the rules a little better,” Rialto Police Chief William A. Farrar told the New York Times. “And if a citizen knows the officer is wearing a camera, chances are the citizen will behave a little better.”

The newly-released footage – and other, cell phone-taken video of the same incident from a different perspective – was taken on Saturday, March 29.

Turns out, Mann’s body-worn camera shows that the brutal cop was involved in a similar incident where he attacked a defenseless woman just eight minutes earlier.

Thanks calijohn. He gave her a warning and told her to not drive pass an officer again.

He punched an elderly woman.
Family wants officer held accountable in beating

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California Highway Patrol has vowed to carry out a thorough investigation after a video emerged of one of its officers repeatedly punching a woman he had pinned down on the side of a Los Angeles freeway.

The woman had been walking on Interstate 10 west of downtown Los Angeles, endangering herself and people in traffic, and the officer was trying to restrain her, CHP Assistant Chief Chris O'Quinn said at a news conference. O'Quinn said the woman had begun walking off the freeway but returned when the confrontation occurred.
The video shows the woman struggling and trying to sit up while the officer punches her in the face and head until an off-duty law enforcement officer appears and helps him handcuff her.

Passing Driver David Diaz recorded the Tuesday incident and provided it to media outlets including The Associated Press. He told the AP in a phone interview Friday that he arrived as the woman was walking off the freeway. He said she turned around only after the officer shouted something to her.
"He agitated the situation more than helped it," said Diaz, who started filming soon after.

Los Angeles attorney Caree Harper said the woman's family wants authorities held accountable for "beating a great-grandmother in broad daylight." She declined to disclose the woman's name or answer questions about what the woman was doing along the edge of one of the city's busiest freeways.

She is undergoing psychiatric evaluation, authorities said.
"We want the focus to be what he was doing to her, not what she was doing" prior to the confrontation, said Harper, who said she is representing the family. "She was getting beat like an animal. No one should ever be beat like that."
The officer is on administrative leave while the patrol investigates. He has not been identified.

The video caught the attention of local civil rights leaders, who expressed shock and outrage at their own news conference.
"Speaking for the women of this community, we are angry, we are upset," said Lita Herron of the Youth Advocacy Coalition.

O'Quinn said the CHP would answer community concerns and that an investigative team already has been assembled and has begun its work.
"We are known as an agency that really polices itself," O'Quinn said.
Community activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson, speaking at the local leaders' news conference, agreed.
"Over the years, CHP has had a very good track record in terms of community relations," Hutchinson said. "That's why this was so shocking."
O'Quinn said the incident report listed no injuries for the woman, who would not give her name.


O'Quinn said he could not say what prompted the officer to act as he did. But he noted California Highway Patrol officers have a heightened sense of the dangers of being on the freeway compared with a citizen "who is not accustomed to the speed and conditions," especially outside of a car.


"The most dangerous thing that we face is traffic," O'Quinn said.

I think it's great that we closed all the government mental hospitals and gave all the mentally ill their freedom, so they could live on our streets.

Well the cops have to have some people wandering around aimlessly to beat on don't they.

The FBI is investigating him also, for civil rights violations. Sounds like Tucson has a real winner down there. Safe to say that POS won't be patrolling much longer.

Light turned green and we both turned right and we only go about 100 feet and he slams his breaks on and of course I have to slam mine on so I don't hit him. He get in the right lane, then pulls behind me and turns his lights on. Gets out of the car and tells me I've giving him a bumper enema. I've never even heard of that so I say what the hell is that. Long story short, he goes back to his car to check my insurance and all that ****. Decides to write me a ticket for following too close, which is BS, he slammed on his brakes to force that. I told him his ticket was BS and I wasn't going to pay a red cent of it. We exchanged a bit more and he finally left. I've never talked to cops that way before but what he did was lame.
You honked at a marked cop car?! ...hey you got gumption.
