$1.5 million payout for woman beaten by California cop - CNN.com
So while I admit that this one case is anecdotal, I suspect if I look hard enough I can find plenty of examples..
The CHP officer that beat the 51 year old grandmother on the freeway MMA style was forced to resign.....Forced to resign? Is that justice? Many cops simply take up residence in a new town and start all over.
Shouldn't the officer in this case have been convicted of a crime? (if he was I am genuinely unaware of it) Should he not only been suspended from his job but prevented from becoming a public official anywhere in the US?
Here is another officer paralyzing a man who was wrongly identified as a suspect. The officer was allowed to continue patrolling the streets even though his record showed that he was 6 times more likely to be involved in violent altercations when making arrests.
Is this every officer? Of course not, but there is way to much of this behavior that is tolerated and there are way to many officers involved in these incidents that get away with crimes simply because they were committed wearing a badge.
