Video captures Sacramento County deputy beating prone suspect with flashlight

Source: Sam Stanton and Denny Walsh - Sacramento Bee

Sacramento County sheriff’s Deputy Paul “Scotte” Pfeifer has been hailed as a hero cop.

The 14-year veteran has won numerous awards in his career, including the department’s highest honor – the Sheriff’s Gold Medal of Valor – for helping save a baby from a three-day hostage situation on Arden Way.

He has been lauded for bravery, honored by the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors and the Carmichael Elks Lodge for helping address the transient problem in the area, feted by the Sacramento chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution and recognized by the California Peace Officers’ Association.

He also has been accused in court of using excessive force at least three times since 2009, each time over his use of a flashlight as a weapon, and captured on video in two separate incidents beating a suspect with a long, metal flashlight. Video of one of those incidents began circulating in December. The Sacramento Bee this month obtained exclusive video of the second incident – shot from the dashboard cameras of two patrol cars.

1. Criminal cops deserve prison

 

Just throw him in the general population for about five years.

4. They promoted him to detective

 

So now he is in "Plain clothes" and less likely to be caught beating people with department issued flashlights

2. That cop is scum

and the man didn't deserve any of what he got. But he's also foolish for even approaching the officer. Stay the fuck away from all cops at whatever cost. If they're blocking an intersection, try to find another way around. It's a shame things are the way they are, but that is reality. Any confrontation with an officer can go wrong at the drop of a hat. They are a volatile bunch for sure!

5. For every outrageous incident

that is caught on tape, I often wonder how many confrontations like this happen where there is no video documentation.

6. I wouldn't be surprised...

... if that ratio was a thousand to one. My stepson is a detective in a nearby county, and that shit is a daily occurrence that draws lots of "ATTABOYS!" in the locker room. Sick fucks.

8. That's kind of what I figure

Body cameras would be an important first step to changing the violent culture of police in this country. Then lots of ongoing training and evaluations.

9. We need "Lots of On-Going Ivestigations and Sentancing"

 

Nothing sicker then a society that allows the "Shooting and Killing of Children" and applauds the perpetrators of those crimes

10. Oh absolutely

Those in law enforcement should be held to a higher standard than the average citizen and penalties should be harsher, not more lenient. It should be an understanding when someone chooses a profession as a police officer.

13. I feel sick

watching this and seeing the depravity of the officer against the man. We are living in a world where some cops think they themselves are king and above the law. These cops need no excuses to stop and assault because they know they can give any bogus excuse after the fact.

Thank god that the guy was able to film this and get it out to the media. As others have said how many such incidents are happening that are not filmed. Of course, filming cops is now a danger to the person filming, which is so wrong in and of itself.

14. I never thought SCSO would stoop this low.

Fair Oaks & Landis? Holy crap! I used to live on Engle-just west of Fair Oaks, and East of Walnut which is 2 or 3
blocks from Landis. Well we can now welcome Sac. Co. sheriffs office to the elite scumbag cop club. My gawd. Who is responsible for hiring this moron?
