Officer Beat Her, Could Have Killed Her, But He’ll Be Able to Resign

She’ll get a settlement, but in a just society under law he’d get a cell:

Marlene Pinnock, the 51-year-old great-grandmother seen in a video being punched by a California Highway Patrol officer, has settled her case against the agency.

Pinnock will receive $1.5 million, according to KTLA. In addition, the Associated Press reports that Officer Daniel Andrew will resign.

The July 1 video recorded by a passerby along the I-10 on-ramp near La Brea Avenue in Los Angeles shows Pinnock attempting to walk away from Andrew.

"He grabbed me, he threw me down, he started beating me, he beat me," Pinnock said when when later describing the incident to the AP. "I felt like he was trying to kill me, beat me to death."

Earlier this month, a CHP investigator said that Pinnock resisted arrest by pushing Andrew, who was trying to keep her away from oncoming traffic.
