|San Bernardino Sheriff's office has to clean house. The cameras caught 10 deputies putting a beat down on a suspect who was already on the ground with his hands up.|
Again, the cameras were rolling when an unarmed suspect on a horse was getting a beat down by the San Bernardino Sheriff deputies. Now 10 members are on leave and are facing an investigation.
The U.S. Justice Department and FBI are looking into how these officers conducted themselves when suspect, Francis Jared Pusok was apprehended by the deputies.
The search warrant was being issued for a resident in the Apple Valley. Pusok was wanted for some minor felonies and misdemeanors. He tried to shake the law by stealing a person's horse.
For about 45 minutes, Pusok was chased through the desert highlands. At the end of the chase, Pusok gets off the horse and surrenders. Pusok was on the ground with his hands over his head. The deputies approach him and give him a serious beat down. The beat down lasted for more than two minutes.

They would have gotten away with this if it wasn't for them pesky cameras.
It wasn't a bystander or the suspect with the camera. It was NBC 4 from Los Angeles. They witness this incident on camera. The helicopter pilot and reporter witness a 10 to 1 beat down. Guess who lost that one?
The suspect did suffer some injuries that required a medical visit. But after release he was sent to lock up for the fleeing and eluding charge.
But he has hired an attorney and is planning on suing the police for excessive force. Sheriff John McMahon is doing damage control after viewing the video.
He calls the incident "troubling" and calls for an internal investigation into this matter.
Pusok was unarmed. He didn't attack the officers with any weapon (i.e. firearm, knife, bodily fluids, animal or explosive device).
The junk food media has been on a roll with the debate over police officers using deadly force against unarmed suspects.
If the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown don't seem to matter, how about this one?
|What image will the junk food media use when they're smearing an unarmed victim?|
The political agitators and arm chair keyboard warriors go back in forth on debating.
The cop who used deadly force on a suspect is given the benefit of doubt by the junk food media and supporters of law enforcement. A dead body (especially a Black man) is valued only as a criminal based on what the public sees on social media or open record searches.
Although Francis will owe up for the criminal acts, he didn't deserve this type of abuse by the law.
We here at Journal de la Reyna wish Francis Pusok a speedy recovery.
