VIDEO: Cops Beat Mom In Front Of Children Over Alleged Retaliatory Seatbelt Violation

April V. Taylor

Cindy Hahn is suing the city of Carlsbad, California over her July 2013 arrest that was caught on video. The video shows her being punched in the head by an officer as she is being held down on the ground by another. The case has been filed in federal court and includes charges of excessive force, battery, negligence and federal and state civil rights violations.

What makes this particular case worse than others is that Hahn’s young children witnessed her being beaten by cops. Hahn says the video of the incident was recorded on ‘the worst day of her life’ and shows her screaming ‘help me’ as she is pummeled in the face. Hahn says her children, aged 7 and 11, were screaming as they witnessed the beating from the car. Hahn reports that her son is still traumatized over not being able to help his mother.

Hahn, whose own father is a retired police officer, says that the altercation was instigated by her asking an officer, who was standing next to a car with its alarm blasting, what was going on. The officer proceeded to ask her if the vehicle belonged to her, and when she told him no, the officer responded by saying, “Then, mind you won f—–g business.”

Hahn was taken aback by what the officer had said to her, and she reported the incident to authorities after the officer continued to swear at her but then left the scene. A short time later, Hahn reports that the same officer pulled her over for an alleged seat belt violation.

The officer quickly escalated the situation, with it further escalating when back-up arrived. It was not until a third officer showed up that she was helped to her feet as the officer helped her hike down her dress.

The video helped the District Attorney drop felony charges against Hahn for battery on a police officer and resisting arrest. According to court documents, she suffered permanent memory loss and brain trauma from the blows to the head.

Court documents also allege that officers lied about the incident under oath during Hahn’s criminal proceedings, and the lawsuit requests that the officers be fired and reformed.

    I know that you have heard this before, but I must repeat it. If you fail to stand up for your
    rights, you have none. As white people stand by and permit police brutality on black people,
    those same white cops now believe that they can do the same thing to white people.

    Don’t you get it? We are all in the same boat. Either we defend one another against police
    brutality or we all become victims of it.

    Blue lives matter is the signs going up today, blues lives does matter as long as you as police officers respect all lives. Officers youh ave to show respect in order to earn respect. This is not a one way deal. Treat all people fairly.

    Funny how this charges were dropped after the police department saw the tape. However, if Hahn was black, she would still be in jail, the police would have said this case is pending investigation to consider all the facts and then they would have file charges for resisting arrest and a whole bunch of other shit. And white people have the nerve to wonder why black people are mad as hell. It’s because the system is fuck up. Point Blank.

    I am beginning to believe that there are cops out there taking drugs which makes them as thuggish as the
    punks on the streets. All lives matter cops and respect is a give and take proposition, if you guys in blue want respect, you have to give it!! Stop eating all those damn donuts, keep your sorry butts in shape and then you can run and catch the guys you are running after instead of shooting unarm folks in their backs!!
    The men in blue are acting like trailer trash, beating and killing women, it just shows how low down the new cop has become.

    People are too quick to forget Hitler and his police force. Their power was over whelming. Many died

    foolish people who retain not the history. this is fascism, Black people have been primed and conditioned for this horror by experiencing it in one form or another in society for 400 years and counting. They brutalize people in the street and then send what are literally brainwashed zombies to shoot people in schools. ( please notice the up tick since elections are brewing up.) they are Heading ALL of US through FEAR. And the people behave have like children running to Daddy government saying we can not control ourselves. WE NEED YOU TO KEEP telling us what to DO, because we are too foolish , too, racist, too ignorant, and too BLIND to handle ourselves FOR ourselves. And you can use the modern day overseer (police) to keep us in line should we ever even ATTEMPT to SPEAK for ourselves, or stand up for what USE to be your RIGHTS> idiots we are if you can not see all of the contradictions that keep us all imprisoned.
