Cover Costs of Counseling

 SFPD beat BSU student
Sunday (1/3/2015)
I was riding my bike in sf doing deliveries for a company called postmates when an officer pulled his cruiser in front of me and told me to pull over. I complied. He then stated that he is pulling me over for being on my phone texting while biking. I said I'm being safe and I'm only using navigation, not texting. The officer told me to drop my phone (I started recording after he told me to pull over) and then grabbed my shirt collar and started punching me in my stomach. I noted that this was excessive force and the officer continued to punch me in my stomach. He reached for his mace and impaired my vision and then began grabbing me by my neck and slamming me to the ground, placing his knee on my back.
Later, more officers came and began holding my legs in the air and beating my legs, while telling me to stop resisting and keep my legs on the ground. I told him I couldn't do that because someone is beating my legs and holding my legs in the air. Afterwards I went to the hospital and got two citations and my courier gear (1 bicycle) is in police holding. This is a stressful and painful life event that no one should have to ever go through, I'm very happy to be  still alive. I will use the donations accordingly to pay for conseling sessions and medical bills.
It means a lot to me that people are helping by donating, sending me heart warming messages filled with support and sharing the story of what happened so it doesn't have to happen to anyone else.
I'm going to be very appreciative and thankful for the help in reaching my goal.
