Caught on Tape: L.A. Cops Body Slam 5’4 Nurse Twice in Del Taco Parking Lot


Caught on Tape: L.A. Cops Body Slam 5’4 Nurse Twice in Del Taco Parking Lot

It seems that the rest of America is slowly learning what the African-American community has known for years; that within the police force is a squadron of brutes. How else can you explain why this 5’4 nurse was body slammed twice by police after they pulled her over for talking on her cell phone while driving?

According to KTLA 5, police pulled over Michelle Jordan, a 34-year-old nurse, last week for talking on her cell phone while driving. Jordan then pulled into a taco restaurant parking lot and got out of her car, and that’s when police say she began to sass them, and that’s what reportedly led to her being body slammed and arrested.  Sound familiar? Henry Louis Gates was arrested outside of his home because a rogue cop didn’t like the tone Gates took with him. (That cop was later rewarded with a trip to the White House.)

In the video captured by restaurant surveillance,  two male cops can be seen pulling on Jordan and throwing her to the ground twice, once while handcuffed. After they’d arrested Jordan and placed her in the police car, they gave each other a congratulatory fist bump.

Just a few weeks ago, Kulture Kritic reported that NYPD police officer Michael O’Brien was caught on tape bodyslamming 19-year-old Sean Pagan for evading a subway fare.

The cops in Jordan’s incident have been placed on desk duty pending an investigation.

“My initial review of the officers’ statements and the recorded video cause me to have serious concerns about this use of force,” Los Angeles Police Department Chief Charlie Beck said in a statement.

    This sh** pisses me off. How is it that these cops can do whatever the hell they want to people and get a paid vacation or desk duty. Now if that was a civilian male out there slamming this little female that way, he would have been arrested. She sassed them! Really?! Arrest there freaking a**es and be done with it.

    These menial minded misfits need to be removed from the Police department employment roles. This has been a problem with these assinine bastards for a long time. Anybody remember how they emptied their guns into Eula Love in front of her children. With no thought for the childrens safety. They think since they joined this gang they are in, that they can do anything they want to anybody and nothing will happen to them. The next time one of them gets killed in the line of duty, they need to understand the law of attraction and how what goes around comes around. I don’t want harm to come to anyone, but if they are supposed to protect and serve, they have abused their power time and time again. God don’t like ugly, and He aint real fond of pretty,… but he sure doesn’t like ugly. You got comupance coming.

    I hope and pray these rogue cops and severly punished for their extreme brutality and unprofessionalism. The video clearly shows these two officiers behaving badly and rewarding each other with a fist pump as if their conduct should be rewarded. It saddens me to see a women physically mistreated by police officers, two men who toke oaths to protect and serve. Hopefully, during the lawsuit proceedings maybe these two officiers will learn a valueable lesson when it comes to practicing police brutality upon citizens who are not acting criminally or violently.

    In case you may not have noticed, cops engaging in felony crimes is now a DAILY event in the news.

    The ONLY thing cops fear is the surveillance video.

    Always carry a video with you for the protection of your fellow man … you never know when you’re going to see some thug cop beating someone or shooting someone.

    So the LAPD Chief only has concerns when the victim is white? I guess the black skateboarder who was nearly killed at the hands of police last week was just a “weekly nigger routine?” White people. It’s unfortunate we live in a society where they exist.

    There has been a rise in police brutality against everyone. It is time that a serious look is taken at why cops feel they can act the way they do…they are trigger happy with force of any kind and if we can’t run amuck, then neither can they!

    Body slamming a handcuffed suspect is torture. It involves psychological trauma and can invoke a rage that cannot be contained by administrative procedures. There was an uncharacteristic lack of mercy for one who is to protect and serve.
    Very unprofessional. Their lack of sound judgement will cost the city much. I am surprised that the Justice Department did not jump on this one. If the women are under siege then we are in deep trouble. I.N.T.E.R.P.O.L. has a female regiment that deals with such crimes. Add this to rapes in our military. Ladies be wise. You are not safe. A message from Christ to all law enforcement, “Do violence to no man.” Do not assume that this does not apply to women also. There seems to be demonic activity in our law enforcement agencies.

    The crazy thing here is the statement that the rest of America is slowly learning what the African-American community has known for years… I grew up poor and guess what… It has always been that way, regardless of skin color. Innuendos like this are dangerous and do nothing but separate us even further. The truth is LA cops are brutal to anyone that gets in their way and is not above them on the food chain. They could care less who you are.

    I have witnessed it and been the unwilling recipient of L.A. Police brutality! They are the most ruthless and lethal gang in L.A.There is a lot of competition though and hate to say it, they are no better than the rest of the thugs there!

    The biggest fear a cop has today is a video camera, for they no longer fear the community. Just seeing that brings back flash backs of Rodney King, God Rest His Soul.
