LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A group of civil rights activists has been promised a meeting with the superintendent of the California Highway Patrol regarding the video recorded actions of a CHP officer, seen violently striking a tackled woman.
The informal coalition has called for an independent investigation of last Tuesday evening's violence at the southeast corner of the interchange of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway at La Brea Avenue.
The religious and social leaders include Earl Ofari Hutchinson, Najee Ali and pastors William Smart and K.W. Tulloss.
Hutchinson said the meeting will be at the West Los Angeles CHP office in Culver City on Tuesday.
Other activists said they planned to meet with local CHP officials at the Central Los Angeles station, near the Convention Center, at 11 a.m. Monday.
