One woman called 911, telling the operator: “The guy was laying on the floor and eight sheriffs ran up and started beating him up with sticks. The man is dead laying right here, right now. I got it all on video camera and I’m sending it to the news. These cops have no reason to do this to this man.”
Something is seriously wrong with the California police, their training, and officer accountability. Every time I turn around there’s a cop beating the shit out of someone in California. There needs to be more done to correct these types of abuses. What we saw in the Chris Dorner situation was indicative of a much larger problem and complete lack of respect for the public trust. California has been plagued with the image of police brutality. The number of instances that I can think of off the top of my head is overwhelming, and I don’t even live in that state.
