    It was far too much. They got carried away. They lied because they knew it.

    Agreed. The fact that they lied is grounds for their removal. I wonder if those cops will get prosecuted?

    WRONG.

    I saw the video. The video disproves your theory. Stop defending the police. You should be ashamed of yourself.

    The days of cops beating the **** out of people simply because they usually get away with it, are nearing an end.

    However, I don't think they will ever stop beating the **** outta people in L.A. or New Orleans. It's tradition there. Who are we to buck tradition?
    It's still a tradition in the Houston area too.

    Given the video evidence ... and the fact that the FBI is investigating .... those involved are quite likely to be terminated and then prosecuted.

    I believe the Cheif of the U of Maryland Police Department needs to be fired and I believe he needs to lose his pension. Why? Because he had the sheer unmitigated gaul to put his badged thugs on PAID suspension. This is an
    unforgivable attempt to avoid punishing those who are OBVIOUSLY guilty and should forever end his law enforcement career.

    The FBI is NOT going to just let this go. The officers in question, who lied during and investigation, are guilty of corrption of justice, assualt with the intent to cause serious bodily harm, unlawful arrest, and false imprisonment at the very least.

    The other officers involved who lied to cover for their cop buddies are guilty of corruption of justice and conspiracy. All of them need to be serving life without parole in general population.
    Prince George's County Police Chief Roberto Hylton has suspended one of the officers who's been identified on the tape and launched an investigation into the incident.
    "I was outraged," said Hylton. "I was very disappointed at the conduct that I saw on the part of my officers on the video tape."
    Hylton said that other officers involved in the beating will likely be fired, but McKenna's family thinks the punishment for some officers should be even tougher.
    From the article.

    Isn't that the usual method for contacting legal council?

    Ok. Maybe I was wrong about the chief. I still don't like the paid suspension deal.
