Three Detroit Michigan police officers and a dispatcher are the subject of a lawsuit alleging that they not only used excessive force when they barged into a man’s home and tackled him over a noise complaint, but also that recordings of their radio transmissions prove that they conspired beforehand to beat the guy up.

A Prince George’s County Maryland police officer has been suspended while investigated over allegations that he punched a man in the face, breaking a tooth, then put him in a choke hold while he was working as security for an event while the man was asking for help because the crowd was too thick and he couldn’t move.

He wasn’t charged though he was apparently detained briefly by an on-duty officer who was there. [0]

Police are reviewing that tape to see if it’s the same officer. [0]

  1. Just another edition of Jackboot Weekly. More reasons to disband the vast thin-blue-line gangsters. Definitely way past time for Citizens Review Boards that are REQUIRED to sign-off on any and all actions and conducts, regardless of whether or not a complaint was filed. Not to mention that jackboots who rape twelve-year-olds should be hung on gallows in front of the White House with mandatory televised broadcasts worldwide.

    What will your local gangsters do when the pink slips come and their reign of terror while hiding behind a tin button ends?

    Cannot happen soon enough!
