Civil rights activists plan to launch a new campaign Thursday for the criminal prosecution of a California Highway Patrol officer caught on video repeatedly punching a woman on the 10 Freeway in Los Angeles, saying the officer's resignation and a $1.5-million settlement do not go far enough.
Pinnock's attorney, Caree Harper, said there were two conditions that were key to the negotiations: That her client be taken care of "for life," and that the officer who hit her lose his job.
Civil rights activists plan to announce their new campaign to have Andrew prosecuted at a news conference Thursday at the site of the beating, which occurred at the 10 Freeway near LaBrea and Adams boulevards.
The July 1 altercation generated national attention after a video shot by a passing motorist surfaced.
It shows a uniformed CHP officer pinning the woman to the ground and repeatedly punching her, landing at least nine blows.
