A California highway patrol officer appears to have brutally knocked down a motorcyclist for what a bystander described as “no reason.”
Over Memorial Day weekend a group called the Elite Bikerz Inland Empire organized a “Fallen Brother’s Ride”
According to Fox 61 News, 26-year-old, rider Raul Martinez was in a high speed chase when the officer hit him with his car.
“For unknown reasons, the left side of the Yamaha made contact with the right side of the patrol vehicle on 19th Street west of Carnelian Street,” CHP officials said in a statement. “The impact caused the rider to be ejected to the ground.”
The witness who recorded video of the incident said that Martinez was abiding by the officer’s rules and appeared to be pulling over.
“I thought it was inappropriate because the guy was pulling over and he was abiding to what he was supposed to do,” the witness said. “And he hit him, the guy took a really good spill.”
A crowed at the incident can be heard saying: “You pushed him! You pushed him down!”
Martinez suffered from minor injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital.
His fellow motorcyclist said they plan on taking legal action because the officer used excessive force.
Trump’s team files fifth demand for Georgia to audit their ballot signatures as their campaign to overturn the election fizzles
President Donald Trump's campaign has filed its fifth demand for the state of Georgia to audit the signatures on ballots.
The statement from the Trump team said that the "Georgia secretary of state should perform an immediate audit of the signatures on all absentee ballot applications and absentee ballot envelopes received for the Nov. 3 General Election. The Trump Campaign estimates that between 38,250 and 45,626 illegal votes from absentee ballots alone were cast in the state of Georgia -- far beyond the Biden-Harris ticket's current margin of 12,670 votes."
Supreme Court hearing gets awkward as conservative Alito runs roughshod over chief justice Roberts
President Trump is pressing the U.S. Supreme Court to allow him to exclude undocumented immigrants from the census count -- a move that goes against more than 200 years of practice where non-citizen residents, even those in the U.S. illegally, were among those counted.
While questioning New York Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, conservative Justice Samuel Alito said that the prospect of submitting two documents, one detailing census numbers of every person inside the U.S. and another detailing numbers that exclude undocumented immigrants inside the U.S. "seems like a totally meaningless formality."
Legal reporter shocked by Rudy Giuliani’s latest ‘breathtaking claim’ in fight over vote counting
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani held a press event in Arizona on Monday in which he lobbed out more false claims that the 2020 election was "stolen" from President Donald Trump.
Among other things, Giuliani alleged that that Arizona's process for picking its voting machines was "corrupt," even though he acknowledged he had no personal knowledge about how the process worked.
One claim, however, shocked Reuters legal reporter Brad Heath, who said it went beyond anything that Giuliani had argued before.
