VIDEO: Innocent Mother Beaten by Cops in Front of Her Children for Reporting Cop’s Rude Behavior


Carlsbad, CA — A shocking video captured the brutal beating of a mother in front of her two children after she merely asked an officer a question.

Cindy Hahn and her children were on their way home when they stopped to use the restroom. During their stop, Hahn asked a Carlsbad police officer a question.

According to Hahn, the officer responded by telling her to mind her own business. Shocked that the officer would address her in such a manner, Hahn called the department to complain. Minutes later, the cop who she reported for being rude pulls her over.

For an alleged seat belt violation, the Carlsbad officer demands that she exit her vehicle. At this point, she is thrown to the ground while two more officers arrive as backup to help assault this dangerous mother of two.

Bystanders plead with the cops to stop their assault, but it is to no avail. One woman is thrown back as she attempts to physically stop the attack.

As the two officers pile on top of Hahn, one of them punches her in the face as he yells out the standard “stop resisting” line.

Hahn was then cuffed and booked on charges of resisting arrest and battery. Apparently the officers did not know that their attack was captured on video when they claimed that Hahn battered them.

This entire incident looks like it was nothing short of a retaliatory beating for a woman filing a complaint against the officer.

After Hahn’s attorney had shown the DA the video of the attack, the charges were immediately dropped.

Hahn has since filed a lawsuit asking for a jury trial and unspecified damages.

“If this goes on with an unarmed mother of two, God forbid what happens when there is somebody who’s perceived to be a threat,” said Mark Geragos, Hahn’s attorney.

As of yet, none of the officers involved in beating this innocent mother have been disciplined.

  • As an American hispanic, I’m tired of how all of these coward racist liberals like Obama and his supporters are trying to turn this great country into a 3rd world one. Unfortunately, one of the biggest problems we have right now is the media and entertainment that are always trying to tell us how to think. They have created enough imbeciles that would re-elect a failure like Obama. Even more, I’m supposed to bow down to anti-American Obama, love liberal policies no matter how destructive they are, love bigger enslaving government, and be in favor of illegal immigration because of the color of my skin… disgusting. That’s why I and others created “Chepo Team”, the first true pro-America, libertarian comic strip. Please support our cause by liking our facebook page at:www.facebook.com/chepoteam . Thank you

    • ???

    • No buddy, that would be you and all the others like you sneaking across the border. Trump gets in, your third world familia will be out of here pronto. He will show you racist.

    • Lol

  • Oh well violence murder lies shootings America what a bastard state

  • But Obama wants Assad out because he beat protesters

    • Gee, I didn’t know Obama was this cop’s immediate supervisor.

    • My point obviously went over your head lol

    • Darren, way to stand out for being retarded..

    • Obama and these fellows supposedly swore an oath to the constitution upon taking office. That means routing out foreign and domestic threats to the American citizen. Fail.

  • Were they fired?

  • How wonderful! Not safe in this world. I don’t even look at them anymore. They only protect their interests.

  • Why don’t you send some of these cops over here, to Germany.
    We’ll teach them proper behavior…

    • 1. You probably have good ones as well – and those you should keep.
      2. We are only 80 Million people, takeing 1,5 Million refugees this year. Sorry, but takeing another million US-Police-Refugees, would surely burst our contingents…
      Let’s see next year.

    • But besides:
      The education to become a German police officer takes 3 years.
      I read a couple of times, that US Cops only have a few weeks…

    • Can we round them all up and put them in gas chambers?

    • Michael Hajduk When we arrived?.So your nation derived from a peaceful historical event then.Sure it did! Fact is,there is blood of the defeated in the soil of every country..Also,no citizens alive here today have any more to do with the history you referenced here,than you do with the nazi party..Nor does the average american have any say in the dealings of todays military,anymore than any other countries average citizens.

    • Charles Glaspie you would be surprised at how civil Germany has become.

    • Germany Fucking Rules!!! ? ?

  • Thank God they got this dangerous woman off the street and taught her a lesson

  • I hope this lady gets millions $… And the police go broke because of that.

    • You beat me to it dave. That is another problem with tax payer funded police forces is that anytime victims are compensated the burden is on the taxpayer.

    • Yep so suing just hurts the people. A catch 22. They should be allowed to sue the cops

    • Jokes on you if she gets millions bro. Where do you think that money is coming from? Their weekend job serving at Denny’s?

    • If we can do nothing, and the judges are so crooked to let them have it their way. I see a division coming. I see killing in the streets. People stopping and helping citizens. People shooting back and just leaving. If they can do this, so can we. We have lost pride in our selves. How can anyone, pull such a hated trick and it not be called a million different things that they would charge me. Some how, some where it has to stop. They have a job to do. We pay them. So step number one. No taxation without proper lawful representation. Lets see what the good ole governor thinks about this. Time for us to add our rules. They cant put a whole state in prison. Just try!!!!!

  • Unreal.

  • YES ,YES YES they will be fired

  • Pigs

  • Don’t talk to them don’t look at them !

  • What a bunch of ahole thugs.

  • Horrible.

  • There it is Stella, Carlsbad just got negative national press!!

    • It won’t let me watch the video! Which part of C’bad? By the house? Not good!

    • Not too sure. Either way, they showed it on the news last night. It wasn’t good. The lady was on the ground crying her eyes out and the cop was telling her to stop resisting and punching her in the face. It was bad!!!!!

    • Greaaaat.

  • ftp

  • Good work

  • and people tell me that “hate” is such a strong word….well, I fucking hate cops!!!….

  • This kind of behavior sends the wrong message to kids and makes trusting a police officer difficult if not impossible. And rightfully so. No better than thug world. My opinion.

    • It’s because of this I tell my daughter to find a security guard not a cop. Find a mom not a cop.

  • BIGGEST gang of all is the police. I don’t like them, don’t trust them, and don’t call them for anything.

  • This makes me sick

  • Sick

  • Totally unacceptable…totally.

  • Gangbangers

  • Cowards

  • What would you like to do to these two punk ass bastards if they did this to your wife

    • Exactly what your thinking,and what they know we will do which is why they want to take our guns away!

  • There’s you a couple of REAL men there…smh

  • This is beyond criminal!

  • Terrible actors….. why not get better ones if you want to to look real

  • it will dont happen in holland what is really going on in america??

  • To bad No one was there to shoot these pigs in the head..

  • All I have to say about that is….BRING IT COPPERS……

  • Keep on stoaking the fire with the war on cops and cause you are lazy and cant fucking do your job properly, if i ever witnessed you doing this to my mom it will be your last move you can count on it, get a real job if you cant handle the responsible one. i have real respect for those of you who tough it to catch the real hard criminals instead of turning the innocent into a criminal and a victim!

    • It seems there are too many officers that thrive on having the public in fear of them. What kind of training makes them act like bar room bouncers and not like public servants?

  • Bully with a badge.

  • One GOOD thing is she is not BLACK and did not DIE !


  • Why the police don’t get that chances are you are being recorded is beyond me..there are more bad cops than good cops is the problem, even if they didn’t assault an innocent person, they cover it up and don’t report the wrong behavior which makes them equally as bad. It’s such a violation, we don’t have any expectations from criminals so when they break the law it’s actually easier to take, when cops act unlawfully, we DO have an expectation from cops and we give them power so it’s more violating. They are supposed to be our employees, doesn’t really feel that way..


  • Get a lawyer, and sue them until their asses bleed..

  • Get rid of your firearms folks; these bad asses got ya covered.

  • So…a citizen files a complaint because a cop’s being an a**hole, they catch up to her and proceed to give her a dose of megalomaniac retribution – in front of her children???

    The fact that they “risked” their badges over something so relatively minor without even the slightest provocation or threat might suggest that they’re so accustomed to getting away with such brutal behaviour that they saw no risk…

  • Land of the Free………………

  • Screw America and it’s corrupt system.

  • This is why people don’t trust cops. They wonder why people are treating them the way they do.

  • I think it’s because she farted. Not because she’s pregnant

  • I’d like to view the video if that’s possible it says that there is a problem and won’t play

  • Police are not your friends.
    Police are not here to help.
    Police are not here to protect.
    Police are not here to serve.

    Unless you absolutely need help, do not talk to a police officer. Be respectful and kindly decline to speak to them and go about your business. Make sure your camera is on any time they come near you. These thugs can legally steal from you, beat you, and kill you. Nothing is worth dying over, so don’t talk to police.

  • Bastards !!!

  • Cops are nasty pigs!!!!!!!!

  • not right

  • Betcha the mothers of the PIGS involved are so proud….

  • “Better take photos instead of helping”

    Think the dozens of people walking and driving passed.

  • So it happens to white women too hmmmmmm

  • Cops usually forget they human being and can bleed to death. Because of the uniform they have on they think they have the upper hand and right to do whatever the fuck they want on normal citizen. The rule is simple, if u choose to live like a slave u will b tormented all your life, live free and fuck the police if they break your freedom or mistreat you….

  • this is what happens when u have faith in the police

  • Unbelievable.

  • That has to be the most unethical and un human conduct of a police officer representing the city which employs them. He kneed her twice and slugged her repeatedly. These men should be ashamed for being such animals

  • and cops wonder why they are geting shot

  • America! What has happened to you! Stand up!!!

  • I’m so pissed I can’t hardly stand it. Fucking Pigs !

  • Wow

  • Sorry – He must be born a bastard who doesn’t know his biological father.

  • Their families encourrages them to continue doing evil to us and our families. KILL PIGS!

  • Why mentally disabled guys become cops in USA?

  • Disgusting!!

  • Fucking thugs wearing blue that’s all

  • This is why I cannot live in the US, If i see something like this, i will act to save the life of a victim from violent criminals.

  • She must have left her white privilege card at home.

  • Get your million bucks lady.

  • Horrible…

  • I live in Canada where cops are the law and are not legalized gangs.

  • same police officer have to past a test on mental health before admision to work

  • Overall some cops need a mental and drug assessment. They are either high on drugs, have a mental problem or I have a got a uniform and i do what I want attitude and shoot your dog too. Or they are just criminals dressed as the law. Not all of them just some that spoil its for the rest of them.

  • WTF

  • Ty for posting this story with an accurate headline!

  • These cops need to be fired immediately! This is the biggest case of police thinking they are beyond the law. Remember we are watching you!

  • This is happening all over cops r useless they cause more harm then good they use their title to take advantage n do what ever the fuck they want. Some drug up men ran over my mail box, treated my son n brother like criminals n had me in the middle of the street with threats,in Edinburg Tex.

  • And they wonder why theirs an open season on cops. Go figure…..

  • Filth…

  • If the system wont fix itself vigalantes will

  • big tuff guys- they can always say you resisted arrest which is a lie- I hope some one does it to their kids or mother- I hope they get fired

  • may death be delivered upon this sorry asses door steps. What would be sweet is to hear this was done to his wife or boyfriend as the world goes today.

  • they are out of control

  • Beating Down, Knee to the RIB Cage & PUNCH To The FACE!!
    What’s Next Taser her & Shoot her & say They FEARED for their lives?

    Everything written on this is what Law Enforcement goes by.
    If you are cop & see this please feel free to try & prove me wrong 😀
    My word from what my eyes have seen against yours.

  • pwlsax

    These are the kind of cops that good cops don’t dare report – the kind who will withhold backup and laugh about it. They may live for this kind of activity. Who knows.

  • Veldic

    The victims need to stop asking for monetary compensation and start demanding eye for an eye compensation. Then when the victim is doling out their allowed justice they should “fear for their life” and execute these fools.

  • Ryan Kent

    When an officer gives a command, people simply need to follow it. You never ever resist arrest. Period. This video begins with an officer attempting to arrest her, and she was doing her best to resist. That is what we know. That is what we see. The struggling and screaming….no reason for it. Even if it is a false arrest, resisting doesn’t help.

    • Capt Turk

      Yes Ryan, everyone should be a good little subservient slave, and bow down to their masters. Zieg Hiel! Your fuehrer would be proud of you!

      • Ryan Kent

        Well let’s see. If she did not resist arrest, she would have been put in the back of the police car and not harmed or humiliated. She resisted so she wound up with an additional criminal charge, and being physically restrained and assaulted as a result. Nothing to gain by resisting, everything to lose.

        • Craig Bowler

          Or instead of picking up a camera, maybe it’s time to flex that second amendment you all seem to insist you need yet never use for the reason you have it. The camera certainly doesn’t seem to be doing it, and if this is not the reason you have the damn amendment I don’t know what is. If that was my wife these pigs wouldn’t have a second chance to pull this shit.

        • Reuben James Hunt

          Watch the video before commenting please.

        • Capt Turk

          “Nothing to gain by resisting, everything to lose”. I saw no resisting in the video at all. She attempted to protect herself from being beaten by an out of control asshole. It’s obvious that you have never encountered a cop like this before. I have, and so I can understand anyone that does resist. You say simply accept being arrested. That sounds all well and good for a justifiable arrest. This, as many more videos I’ve seen , was not. It was abuse of authority, plain and simple. I hear this “just take it to court” crap all the time from the cops, and cop suckers, but they never take into consideration what being arrested entails. Being arrested quite simply wrecks your life. There is, in this situation, a 9 year old girl left unattended. There is the cost of bail, the loss of freedom, being caged with real criminals and the danger that involves, the probable loss of your job, and the loss of income. There is the absolutely outrageous cost of hiring an attorney. I’ve known people that were evicted from their homes because of an arrest. There is the time wasted having to deal with corrupt courts, and the stigma of being arrested, and jailed, because so many people automatically assume you are automatically guilty, if you have been arrested, even if totally innocent. Yes Ryan, be a good little subject and bow to your masters.

    • Hawk620

      Ryan, you’re full o shit!

    • Reuben James Hunt

      Did you see her resist? I saw her thrown to the ground by the guy she had just complained about: Note the conflict of interest” then he immediately started beating the crap out of her claiming that her curling into a fetal position was resisting! There’s a reason the charges were dropped!

  • Capt Turk

    It angers, and saddens me, every time I hear an American start spouting off with that “We live in a free country” crappy delusion. Open your eyes people. The United police States of America is no longer a free country. ………………..I’m just glad I had the sense to get out while I still could.

  • Craig Bowler

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Seems to be only one thing these idiots cops understand,
