Witnesses: Cops Kept Hitting Him and Hitting Him

2017/04/12

DEL PASO HEIGHTS, CA — Disturbing footage has emerged showing a cop choking a citizen.

Witnesses at the scene say the man had been jaywalking, and began defending himself against the officer’s aggression.

“I never witnessed anything like that. He just kept hitting him and kept hitting him, and I was like ‘oh my God…why you hitting him like that? Why you hitting him like that? You need to stop hitting him.’ And he kept hitting him,” said one witness in an interview with Fox 40.

The video at no point shows the man acting aggressively toward officers.

It does appear that he may have said something insulting to them, and witnesses confirm that he was jay walking — but is this enough to justify the level of force used against him?

    Dash cam video just released, show the man DID NOT jaywalk! Absolutely NO reason for a stop! The person calling himself a cop, should be fired, de-commissioned, criminally charged and be held personally help liable! Of course we all know he will get a 3 month paid vacation, will be “hand-slapped” and then continue to trying to ruin the lives of people who have done nothing wrong! But that’s just a guess 🙂

    This thousand pound piggy cop deserves death. The cops in this video who did this terrible action deserve death. Just like President Donald Trump deserves death.

  • The man simply followed instructions, calmly dropped his coat and kept his hands down. This is what a Police State looks like. The civilian has no rights and the stupid racist whites thinks its all fine and dandy because they have not yet been selected for incarceration. I swear it is so obvious that cops are trained to move young black men into the revolving door of the justice system. It pays their salaries and they need more and more bodies to keep growing.

    Police officers who witness other officers…how can you keep allowing your fellow police officers to do these types of things? Have you no soul? How can you look your children in the face each morning? Or do you?
