California Cop Suspended for Beating and Choking Man for Jaywalking

The Sacramento police officer caught on video choking and punching a man for jaywalking was suspended Tuesday after his supervisors viewed the footage.

The cop claimed he feared for his safety because the man removed a jacket and dropped it on the street, indicating he was challenging the cop to fight.

But the man, Nandi Cain Jr., said he was just taking off his jacket to show he was not armed.

The video that surfaced, which was recorded by a friend of the victim, does not show Cain raising his fists to fight, even after the cop grabs him by the neck and throws him down on the street before sitting on him and wailing on him with punches.

Cain was charge with resisting arrest and was later accused on becoming combative with cops while being booked in jail.

However, the 24-year-old man was released from jail Tuesday morning with no charges.

Meanwhile, they have yet to identify the cop. And they have yet to release dashcam footage of the incident, claiming it is being reviewed, even though we can be sure they did just that before placing the cop on administrative leave.

And yes, it is a paid suspension, but both the chief and mayor made it clear they were not happy with what they saw on the video.

According to Fox 40:

Sacramento Police Sergeant Bryce Heinlein told Fox40 that the “actions of this officer does not represent the men and women of this police department … the video speaks for itself and you know obviously we’re taking this seriously.”
Heinlein said Cain was initially arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest and became combative with deputies while he was being booked at Sacramento’s primary jail.
Cain was released Tuesday morning because police did not have sufficient grounds to file a complaint against him, Heinlein said.
Video from police cruisers that were at the scene is being reviewed and may be made public.
Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the officer’s actions were “extremely disturbing and they are not representative of the training nor the expectations we have for our Police Department.”

All we know about the cop is that he has been on the force for two years, so he probably has already developed a history of abuse.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
