LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The California Highway Patrol has announced that it has suspended officer Daniel Andrew after a video was posted online that showed him straddling a woman on a freeway shoulder and punching her repeatedly in the head.

You can bring a brief glimpse of light into a dark world.

The July 1 video shows Andrew beating 51-year-old Marlene Pinnock, a homeless woman, who was walking along Interstate 10 in Los Angeles. The graphic video also shows Andrew beating the Pinnock's face and head as she screams and struggles.
