This week, in Los Angeles, California, a cop was caught on camera senselessly assaulting a pedestrian.
Bystander David Diaz was in his car when he noticed a violent confrontation developing between a police officer and a woman.
Diaz saw the woman walking away from the officer but then he saw him grab her and throw her to the ground before repeatedly bashing her head with his fists.
The police department insists that this level of force was necessary.
California Highway Patrol told NBC 4 that it, “Would be premature to comment on the video without reviewing the entire incident.”
“No one condones…when he gets on top of a woman, and this is a big officer, and he punches her repeatedly,” Diaz said, adding, “She could have died out there.”
Another eyewitness said that woman was “shoeless, terrified and did not pose a threat.”
The CHP has refused to release any information about the woman or the officer involved in the incident.
