Marlene Pinnock, 51 year old homeless woman, who was beaten by a member of the California Highway Patrol on July 1, 2014 finally breaks silence. The initial video of her beating went viral after it was recorded by a passerby. The video shows Marlene attempting to walk away from the officer while the officer tries to stop her, quickly escalating to a take-down, and then an intense beating session.
After filing a formal complaint against the CHP officer, the case has reached settlement and she has been awarded 1.5 million dollars. The officer could face felony charges, and has been assigned to desk duty.
The video above tells her side of the story.
