Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43) released the following statement today in light of a video showing a California Highway Patrol officer repeatedly punching a woman in the face on the 10 Freeway:
"In the wake of the recent video showing an African-American woman being viciously punched by a California Highway Patrol officer, we are once again witnessing a brutal attack on a human being by a law enforcement officer. And once again, we are hearing from law enforcement that no one knows the events leading up to what was caught on tape or what prompted the officer's actions. However, I maintain there is nothing that can justify the officer punching a helpless woman on a freeway. This type of police brutality happens too often with African-Americans and we have seen it time and time again. There are those who should know by now that we will not keep quiet when incidents like this occur.

Pasadena, CA — Currently, there are no locally acquired cases of viruses, including West Nile, Chikungunya and Dengue fever, transmitted from mosquitoes to humans in Pasadena. To protect against these diseases, it is important that Pasadena residents help prevent the breeding of mosquitoes by emptying all standing water in containers left outside, keeping swimming pools clean, and regularly checking for mosquito larvae in still water sources such as bird baths and ponds.
