Police Brutality: California Highway Patrol Officer Beats Black Woman Senseless On Side Of Freeway

Posted by John Campanella | Jul 05, 2014 | 0 Comments

Without knowing the entire story this video depicts a CHP officer violently punching a woman in her head as he straddles her.  Law enforcement has a difficult job and I do not know what preceded this beating but it is hard to understand why this was necessary.

Let's follow up on this and see if we hear anything more from the CHP.

My friend Carlos Miller who runs P.I.N.A.C (Photography is not a crime) out of Miami, Florida regularly posts videos and articles of citizens being brutalized and arrested for photographing the police.

Perhaps the greater visibility will result in a different public attitude towards law enforcement? It seems like the police want citizens to think of them like they are as friendly as Andy Griffith but when they are dressed more like the military and are searching our cell phones without warrants they don't feel so friendly.

John Campanella

I have been representing people accused of drunk driving since I began practicing in 1995. I went to my first Sacramento DUI conference that year and listened to great DUI attorneys like Ed Kuwatch AKA, “Fast Eddie” and Lawrence Taylor who motivated me to study and practice in this area of law. While my office is located in Sacramento I live in the bay area and travel back and forth accepting Sacramento DUI cases as well as the following counties: El Dorado, Placer, Yolo, Solano, Napa, Alameda, Contra Costa, and Marin.
