Shameful Sheriff’s Deputies

Nakia Porter pulled over to change drivers during a trip with her father and three young children.

Solano County sheriff’s deputies then pulled their guns on her and slammed her to the pavement, where she lost consciousness.

Porter has now filed a federal lawsuit alleging that deputies lied to responding paramedics and on official reports about what happened.

Judging by the body cam footage, that’s exactly what the deputies did.
