A statement was released by the California Highway Patrol that said,
“The California Highway Patrol (CHP) just became aware of the video today and we are investigating the entire incident,” according to the statement. “As a matter of policy, every time there is a use of force by our officers, there is a review conducted to determine whether the use of force was appropriate. That will be done in this case, however, since there is an ongoing investigation, it would be premature to comment on this specific video segment. After the investigation is completed it will be reviewed at multiple levels within the Department.”
We are still waiting to find out more information about both the victim and the assailing officer. We get the idea that this is going to be one of those stories that has lots of “missed warning signs” as it pertains to both of the people involved. Stay tuned.
