Two San Diego Sheriff’s Deputies on Paid Leave After Video Surfaces

A Facebook video was posted on May 8th, 2018 shows six San Diego County sheriff’s deputies violently arresting two men.

According to the department’s press release, a woman called the police and reported that she was in a domestic violence situation involving a weapon and was being forced to stay there against her will.

In the 22-second video posted on Fox 5 San Diego, you can see a deputy slam the head of one of the handcuffed suspects into a gate.

Seconds later you can see another suspect laying on the ground while another deputy strikes him in the head multiple times.

Both the suspects, Gerardo Martinez Jr. and Gerardo Martinez Sr., were wounded in the scuffles.

“Upon reviewing the video, we immediately opened an internal investigation into the actions taken by the deputies,” Sheriff Bill Gore said in a statement.

“This review will be comprehensive and include reviewing body-worn camera video, all relevant reports and interviews with involved parties.”

Gerardo Martinez Jr. was arrested for false imprisonment and assault with a deadly weapon. Gerardo Martinez Sr. was arrested for obstructing deputies but later released after posting bond.

Two of the deputies seen in the video have been placed on paid administrative assignment pending the outcome of the investigation.

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.
