A woman named Marlene Pinnock on a California freeway was punched repeatedly by a California Highway patrol named Daniel Andrew. Before the punching occured motorist called 911 saying there was a woman walking along the freeway. It was caught on video and it will recieve 1.5 million under settlement and the officer Daniel Andrew agreed to resign.According to the notes made public in court documents last month, Andrew had just pulled Pinnock from oncoming traffic and she resisted by pushing him after multiple drivers called 911 to report her walking barefoot along the side of the freeway.

Officer Daniel Andrew could still be charged criminally in this case for assualting a woman without probable cause. The abuse of power and authority comes to this issue because even though the woman was resisting, it is unacceptable to repeatedly injure the victim.This act of violence is unacceptable especially to a person who swore to protect and enforce the laws. I think racial profiling had something to do with this case because due to the most recent Michael Brown case it is happening more in today’s society.

A solution to this problem is law enforcement needs to recruit people that are respectful of the law. If they take advantage of there position they should be fired instantly because we depend on these type of people to protect us. The only thing that Officer Daniel Andrew was right in doing is stepping up and resigning from law enforcement. If governments recruit people like this to enforce the law, they are no different from the people that they  call criminals.

    I totally agree with your argument. The police commander or who ever that recruit polices should recruit people that will fully respect laws and criticizing of the U.S. I am truly disappointed by this named police officer and his brutal act against this woman.

    I agree with the aurthor as well. As a police officer, don’t you get sweared in or something like that? To protect the people and so on? THey work for society. Yes, the victim was in the wrong as far as walking on the freeway with no shoes on, that seems very suspect and unsafe so it is good that officials were there. He did not have probably cause to attack her the way he did. She did resist, but did not put his life in harm to where he had to defend himself to that extent. Now imagine if she had fought back because of his initial attack, there is no doubt in my mind they would have charged her for assulting an officer because that was taken way too far. I am glad that he decided to resign because he saw the fault in his actions. And as far for the victim, well, lets just say shes sitting pretty haha.

    The Police Official was in the wrong by hitting this women, and he should of been convicted just as any other person would for assaulting someone. The fact that he is a Police Officer gives him no right to go against his power, he should of detained this women and put her in a local holding cell overnight, so she learns to listen to the law. I agree with your point that the Police Force needs to recruit people that are respectful of the law and trustworthy to not go over their power. For example, the Ferguson killing was just uncalled for and we need to do something about Police hurting/killing people because of race or social profiling.
