On the original ...
http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-chp-officer-beating-potentially-serious-charges-20140820-story.html
The California Highway Patrol announced Wednesday that one of its officers faces “potentially serious charges” for repeatedly punching a woman in the head along the 10 Freeway in July, an incident that was caught on video and posted to YouTube, causing widespread outrage.

In addition to turning its criminal investigation over to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office for review, the CHP also said that the officer, Daniel Andrew, had been moved from desk duty to administrative time off.

An internal investigation into the matter remains ongoing.


As I said at the beginning of this thread, the CHP is not the LAPD or the LASD.

Somebody sitting in a car & grabbed me by the throat would certainly have a facial injury to show for it.

Good to know you will strike a police officer attempting to effectuate your arrest.


Did worse, stuck an SLR in his face. Why? Stupid mutt wanted to stop my army truck (20 odd men in the back) & left me very very little space to avoid hitting his vehicle. 2 lads ended up injured.

Just because they wear a police uniform does not justify breaking the law themselves!

Got a rule of thumb for you, do what the man with the gun says no matter how wrong, sort it out later.

The overall morality changed in youngsters, I remember I was from the X generation, a lot different than your generation already. 20% of todays youth have great fear of the future, statistics have proven and no, this has nothing to do with sex, just proving a point that humans 'evolved' together with society, technology, social environment, factors who play a totally different role than 30 years ago.

And with Martin over in the warming thread posting that every raindrop is evidence that global warming is going to kill everyone, I understand where this comes from. The hysteria that is the popular press, it isn't journalism any more, will be the downfall of society.

I'm surprised neither of you have used the word "incest"

A Black Man is Killed in the U.S. Every 28 Hours by Police

The actual words
Police officers, security guards, or self-appointed vigilantes extrajudicially killed at least 313 African-Americans in 2012, according to a recent study. This means a black person was killed by a security officer every 28 hours.

Why did you misrepresent what was written?

Sorry Gary, I know I'm awesome and very knowledgeable about stuff, but I didn't actually write that article or give it its title. Feel free to ask the correct people your question.

See it was the headline writer, not you.

But it sent me looking. Couldn't find 2012 quick, but did find 2011. 6309 blacks were murdered, that is nearly one per hour. Where is the outrage?

I just knew something wasn't adding up ...

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-28841715
Tiffany Mitchell, another eyewitness, recalled a similar narrative in an interview on CNN. She said that Mr Brown briefly struggled with Mr Wilson while he was still seated in the police car. During the struggle, Ms Mitchell says that the officer shot his gun through the window.
...
Dr Baden said that there was no gunshot powder residue on Mr Brown's skin, indicating that the he was shot from more than 2ft (.6m) away

So where the hell is the GSR that should be all over him if he was struggling with the officer at the car window when a shot was fired? Of course someone would have looked at the GSR pattern on the inside of the vehicle by now,

Maybe the funeral home washed the body getting it ready for a funeral? Then the second autopsy?

There is a book, "How to lie with statistics." I think we might have just seen "How to lie with autopsies."

You seem to be completely unaware that black people are often treated totally differently by the police than white people.

often not equal to always, so why are you assuming that there was racism? are you perpetuating a stereotype?

You really don't get it, do you?

I do. Perhaps a lot better than you do.

One must understand the long history of this, always defeated, movement.

They aren't defeated until they don't spring back up.

Of course jihad is an idea, and AFIK you can't defeat an idea.

In most everywhere else in the country, when you have a major shooting involving the death of a person the shooting incident report and the preliminary findings of the autopsy are revealed to the public by the authorities. This is done to give the family and loved ones some sort of comfort in the death and it has not been done in the case here.

You never have anything released while it is under active investigation. Usually coroner's reports are sealed in such cases and everyone is put under gag order.

The people want transparency in this investigation and there has not be any.

And there NEVER is any until the investigation is finished. The investigation must be done in secret. We don't have trial by newspaper in this country!

Hell, the family still hasn't been able to view the body yet.

You mean they didn't go to the funeral home? That speaks about them.

Now the FBI has the body, but that only happened after the family's shyster held a news conference.

As far as complaints or internal affairs reports go, from what I have been able to learn through reports, any such complaints/reports are not inserted into an officer's jacket. They are inserted in the case file, therefore as far as the police are concern his/her jacket is clean.

I can't speak to the policy of that police department, but the ones I've known, all complaints, dismissed or sustained, go in the jacket (a summary with the case number to find the fat file you talk about) First damn thing IA wants to know is has he been involved in similar incidents, check the MO!

Something doesn't add up. I just wonder if the prosecutor has some forensic reports that contradict the alleged witness statements. It would be illegal to arrest someone if there is sufficient exculpatory evidence. Tell me you know what the forensic evidence says!

If the cop is a guilty as you scream, then why hasn't the FBI booked him? Even if the locals are in CYA mode, the FBI isn't! Or are you telling me the locals are hiding evidence from the FBI?!

Why all the racial stuff?

Why would the Cop, or the teenager, be racist?

If the Forensics backup the Cops story. End of story.

If the Forensics don't backup the Cops story. He goes to jail for many decades.

To allege Black's are... White's are... Asian's are... Is just racial bigotry.

Bigotry knows no race. ALL bigots, of ALL races, are vile and evil people.

got a dumb question .....
so you arrest him, what does that accomplish?
while he is out, he has to answer questions
bust him "you have the right to ..."
Which one will get you to the truth faster?


got another ....
how could a cop with that big an attitude problem be on the force for several years and not have a bunch of internal affairs beefs in his jacket?

Cliff's post sure shows the "CSI" mentality. All cases are resolved in 60 minutes.


"CSI" mentality has nothing to do with it.

It has everything to do with it unfortunately.

Jaywalking does not get an officer to pull his gun. Something else happened.

empathy, a useful trait?

Example: Honey Bees
Example: Fruit flies

Honey bees care about other bees and will act help each other.

Fruit flies don't care about each other and will not act together.

Both traits seem to work in the world.

Humans seem to be in between. Both traits seem to be in us.

Perhaps climate change will supply the stress to humans so that natural selection will change us so only one trait survives?
