I missed Beat The Shit Out Of A Nurse Day?

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles Police Department commanding officer has been removed amid an internal investigation into a videotaped beating in which officers tackled a handcuffed registered nurse to the ground, police Chief Charlie Beck said Wednesday.
Beck said previously that he had "serious concerns" about the use of force against Michelle Jordan, 34, who was arrested in the Tujunga area on Aug. 21 after being stopped for talking on a cellphone while driving, police said.
Jordan got out of the car and cursed the two officers who stopped her, witnesses and Jordan's husband told KNBC-TV.
Fast-food restaurant surveillance video obtained by the TV station (bit.ly/NVptHP ) showed officers taking her to the ground. After she is handcuffed and walked to a police car, the 5-foot-4 woman is tackled a second time by an officer who lands on top of her.
"She made some unwise moves," her attorney, Sy Nazif, told the station. "But certainly nothing that warranted a physical assault from the LAPD."
Photos show scrapes on Jordan's face, shoulders and chest.
The officers involved in the incident have been removed from patrol duty until an LAPD investigation is complete. One is a 22-year veteran and the other is a probationary officer with 10 months on the force.

Just another example of the fucking cops doing whatever the fuck they want to whoever they want.
If she was mouthing off, why wasn't she just laughed off, issued her $300+ ticket and allowed to leave? Or at the very most, arrested without force if they felt they had cause? Talking shit to a cop is now an ass-kicking offense?
One of the cops was a 22 year employee - you'd think by that time his badge-heavy attitude would've worn off.
Fucking punks should be fired and prosecuted for assault.

Damn, I used to talk shit to our local cops all the time. I got pulled over for running a stop sign once. The conversation went something like this:

"You ran that stop sign back there"

"No I didn't you must have something in your eye."

"Oh really, and what could I have in my eye that would cause me to see you do something you claim you didn't?"

"I don't know, cum?"

He wrote me a ticket and sent me on my way.

What I saw was an Assault and abuse of power. The two cops should get some time at Chino in the general population...

The Nurse will become one of LA's newest millionaires if her scum lawyer is any good at all. (BTW all lawyers are scum in my book).

Speaking of lawyers: Fuck Obama

Kontempt of Kop is punishable by corporal punishment up to, and including summary execution in the field.

I thought everyone knew that?

When will we start holding officers accountable for their brutality and excessive use of force? It seems the more these situations arise, the more they are ignored and even justified. Over 20 years after the Rodney King incident and what has changed? We live in a country which profits from violent policing.
