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?
