Nguyen says that officers confronted her and two male friends outside of a downtown Los Angeles restaurant at 2 am, waiting for a cab. They had been drinking and didn’t want to drive home intoxicated. The two men were told to leave or they would be arrested. After they complied, Nguyen was cuffed and placed in the cruiser. Video of the incident appears to show Nguyen sprawled on the ground with her dress removed from the waist down.
The deposition taped last month claims that while the officer who was in the back seat with Nguyen grabbed her left inner thigh and began forcing her legs apart. Nguyen says the officer also grabbed her chest and pulled her by the ear to bring her head towards him. As she struggled to get away from him, she says officer negligence led to her being thrown from the high speed, moving vehicle.
Nguyen spent two weeks in the hospital as a result of the injuries she sustained. Her jaw was wired shut and she lost all of her teeth from the impact, after being ejected from the cruiser.

If this happened where I live in the UK there would an inquiry carried out by the police on themselves and it would find them innocent. Coppers know that they can rape, murder and steal etc with impunity and then come off as hurt and indignant when they are the objects of scorn and disrespect.
These organised thugs answer to no one and are completely out of hand. I'm thankful that our dirtbags aren't routinely armed because they would kill a lot more than American cops do. My Father has been saying it for as long as I can remember that the police are the most corrupt of all organisations and I agree with him. Never trust the filth to act lawfully or tell the truth. Police, criminals, and lawyers, never was there a dark triad in which the three elements were so deserving of each other.
I don't understand why people in the States don't cause a bigger stink.
There seems to be an air of acceptance (I accept that this judgement is made from afar).
