Rodney King Beating Deju Vu A CHIP Turning A Woman's Head Into A Punching Bag

One would have thought the police in L.A. after the video beating of Rodney King
Would know that a normal citizen stop cannot be turned into a UFC fighting ring
Everyone has a cell phone that quickly becomes a video cam eye
Whether by a citizen stop just walking or driving by
Once recorded the scene goes viral on the internet
No more brutality to be unreported hoping the victims will forget
The scene of a CHIP who looked more like a lineman for the Chargers than a cop
Is filmed beating the living daylights out a woman pedestrian following a freeway stop
John Henry type biceps black gloved fists
How can we allow such force to exist?
Blow after blow to her head while she is on the ground with him on her back
Cannot imagine what behavior provoked such an attack
The California Highway Patrol promised that it would investigate
Impartial we hope as this form of brutality we cannot tolerate
Worse the beating to the face of this woman indicates she is black
Her beater is white and we do not need one more race relations set back
Do not want to rush to judgment without all the facts
But it sure looks like this thug masquerading as a CHIP should be sacked.
