I don't watch mainstream news so I don't know if it's getting coverage on there but I saw a Yahoo article about this and it elicited a pretty big reaction for a Y! article... it has thousands of comments with most people shaming the cop
SMH! This is crazy. Of course this cop will get a slap on the wrist and probably get paid to not work while they "investigate" police brutality happens alot worldwide and needs to change,and police wonder why no one wants to cooperate during robbery cases and homicides
i mentioned in a failed thread yesterday that i can't believe how desensitized we have become to this kind of thing. myself included. it's become the new normal. unbelievable how easily we can shrug this off.
It's unclear what Pinnock was doing walking along the highway at the time.

savagely beat by someone who seemed to be trying out for mixed martial
arts. And it's unacceptable," said the woman's attorney, Caree Harper.

Physically combative? You have a white woman caught on camera slitting the throat of a cop and getting a slap on the wrist. This woman was just walking and didn't deserve that.
And I don't bother reading comments of videos like these on youtube or yahoo. Stories like these are magnets for racist degenerate psychopaths that have no power in their real life so they go online and spew hate online in the safety of their homes.
The justice departments seriously needs to step in here! Are you kidding me? This woman is on the ground in a defenseless position, trying to protect her head from repeated blows. Unless there is more to the video then what is being shown, I don't see her being physically combative.
