The Sacramento police department said “The actions of the involved Sacramento police officer are disturbing and do not appear to be reasonable based upon the circumstances,” and have launched an investigation.
Dash Cam video is what launched the investigation.
In the video the cop tells Nandi Cain Jr. “Stop right now before I take you to the ground,” Cain, 24, responds with, “You pulled me over for nothing. I don’t have nothing,” and then removes his jacket. “I don’t have nothing.” As the cop continues to tell Cain to get on the ground, Cain says, “If you’re a real man, you can take your gun away and you can fight me like a real man.” At that point, the video shows the officer takes Cain to the ground and beats him until his other homies come over
