A community Copwatcher reports that the day before yesterday, December 23, at about four o'clock in the afternoon, police severely beat the driver of a white vehicle that had been involved in a traffic stop. The stop, which occurred on Holt Blvd near Indian Hill (in the area where there are numerous businesses operated by members of the Vietnamese community). According to the witness, the driver was a Latino man, likely in his fifties or sixties. He had no visible tattoos or any other visible indication that he might have been involved in gangs or anything of that sort.

These types of incidents seem to be piling up--cops are driving too fast or recklessly, and crash into civilians, often with tragic results. Fortunately, it seems like nobody was injured too bad in this case. Doesn't even look like it's being treated as an act of negligence. It's too bad--they should really usher the officer to a drug test immediately like they do to anybody driving a forklift who has a collision of any sort. It's too late for that, but that's the kind of response we would like to see when these incidents occur.

Here's some reporting from the Press-Enterprise:

This looks like a "routine traffic stop" (AKA predatory patrolling by armed agents of the police state) gone deadly. They are accusing the victim of having a weapon, but like always, we reserve judgment until more facts come out. Here's an article from TV station ABC:
