'Horrific Abuse of Power': California Police Launch Investigation After Viral Video Shows Deputy Pun

Daily Beast

Sacramento’s Black Lives Matter chapter said there is “not one reason that validates a full-size armed man, to sit on, punch, and try and break the arms of a child.”

A California deputy is under investigation after a disturbing viral video showed him punching and choking a teenage boy during an arrest, authorities said.

The Rancho Cordova Police Department and the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office announced an “investigation into the use of force by our deputy” after a video of the April 27 incident posted on Twitter on Tuesday received more than two million views and was shared by former Democratic presidential candidates Julian Castro and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

“This is a horrific abuse of power,” Harris tweeted. “This officer must be held accountable.”

5. Saw that on Twitter

Quite disturbing especially given how much larger the officer is.

6. I know this is California, not East Cornpone, Arkassippi, but

will the cops rally around their own, or will we get some actual justice?
