A “special needs” homeless woman is punched in the face by a Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy. The video was filmed by an Iraqi war veteran. Cops then tried to intimidate the man, telling him he would be arrested if he did not hand over the phone he used to record the incident.
Sheriff Lee Baca said the deputy who was captured on video striking a woman on a Metro bus will be held accountable for his actions, but stopped short of saying he should be disciplined. As many of you know, Lee Baca has denied allegations of continued beatings and mistreatment of inmates in the Los Angeles County Jail.
