Remember the video from this summer that showed a California Highway patrol officer beating a woman on the side of a freeway? That woman, Marlene Pinnock, who happened to be homeless, will receive $1.5 million from the incident. The police officer will no longer be a police officer. The issues were settled during mediation, according to BuzzFeed.
Pinnock’s attorney said, “One of the things we wanted to make sure of was that she was provided for in a manner that accommodated her unique situation in life, and that the officer was not going to be an officer anymore and we secured those things.”
