    To many passing judgement without knowing what really happened.

    If she were white, there would be no thread.
    Not that i know of.On the video shown the hero cop comes up and grabs her from behind and proceeds to pound her.What do you have that justifies that act?In court that would be called an assault.

    Why was the cop there? Why was traffic stopped? What was she doing before the cop intervened? Is foot traffic on a freeway 'normal'?

    Traffic wasn't stopped. It's los Angeles the freeways are always packed.
    What was she doing before the cop intervened?
    She was walking in the freeway. On the side.

    Yes. Highway cops will leave their vehicle if necessary.

    That's because most sane people can tell that there isn't a circumstance in which the cop's actions are justifiable.

    Lmao yes there would be. If the majority in this country are white I'm pretty sure that a white women getting beat down by a cop in the dirt on a freeway would have pissed off some of the population.
    I'm not going to pass jusgement or make **** up.I wasn't there but know exactly where this happened. The video shows the officer coming from an onramp to a freeway. The woman was walking on the shoulder of the freeway, you can't do that in California. Not even if you ran out of gas.

    >" According to the arrest report, the woman, who was not named, was seen barefoot, walking along the freeway shoulder, and at times stepping out into heavy traffic.
    The CHP says she ignored the officer’s command to get out of the traffic lane and then became physically combative.
    The report also says the officer was concerned about the woman’s safety as well as his own, and when he tried to place her under arrest a “physical altercation ensued.”
    An off-duty plain clothes officer helped the CHP officer put handcuffs on the woman.
    The CHP says she did not complain of any injuries and the officers didn’t see any evidence of injuries.
    She has since been transported to Los Angeles County Medical Center for evaluation..."<

    BTW: I bet that vehichle you claimed was the homeless womans car actualy belonged to the off duty cop you saw coming to the aid of the CHP officer.

    Being a "Highway Patrolman" does not mean you walk on the highway. He was there for a reason, and the people filming the incident were filiming it for a reason. Things had transpired prior to what we are being shown, which is obvious from what was said by the people filming the incident. The people filming the incident imply the individual should have been arrested and that she had done something which warranted the police action. It may very well have been excessive or abusive. But until you know, you are spewing.

    Only if you're 5150.

    Freeways in California are called impact ranges for pedestrians. That's why it's illegal to walk on freeways in California.

    This happened on the I-10 (Santa Monica Freeway) in the Capital of the Third World, formerly known as Los Angeles. In fact the on ramp you see is at La Brea, maybe 30 miles from the "Orange Curtain."

    We don't have any 5150's behind the Orange Curtain, we dump them off in Santa Anna unless they are real nut cases then we dump them in L.A.

    If you watch the video and listen, you will hear the guy that is filming it give some small level of insight into what it was about. But beyond a few sentences and some admittedly very damning video, all you really have is...well...nothing.
    I will grant you that.

    But I can't see how she posed any threat to the officer once she was on the ground, crazy or not.

    That video made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up...

    The officer and every source covering the incident simply state that the woman was walking on the highway nothing more nothing less. It is illegal to walk on the highway, but that doesn't call for beating someone's face in.
