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.

(She claimed to be a different officer.)
