*The L. A. chapter of the National Action Network is calling for L. A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacy to criminally prosecute the unidentified California Highway patrol officer for excessive use of force against an African American female who has refused to give her name to police.
She was stopped by the officer for walking near the freeway ramp. And then viciously attacked by the officer who was videotaped beating the woman by a passing motorist.
“This officer brutally beat an unarmed woman in an unprovoked attack . He’s seen on videotape landing several punches to her face and head as if he is fighting in a UFC fight. This type of police brutality is inexcusable. We’re calling for this officer to be criminally charged by the District Attorney and fired ” stated Najee Ali, political director of the National Action Network.
“Our organization is outraged by this officer’s actions. We have contacted our national president Rev Al Sharpton and he has indicated that he is in full support of our leadership and call for this officer to be fired and prosecuted” stated Rev. K. W. Tulloss, president of the L.A. Chapter of the National Action Network.
