A Connecticut police department has released a video showing that a former Meriden police officer kept beating a suspect after the man had stopped struggling.
Cossette said the video, released this week, shows that Lawlor's actions are unacceptable. Cossette fired Lawlor three months after the incident, which came after a police chase involving Alexis Hernandez, of Meriden.
Lawlor pleaded guilty earlier this month to one count of third-degree assault. He was given a one-year suspended sentence.

He was fired and pleaded guilty, that is all that matters.
I hope people do not believe all cops are like this. Most of them are out there to protect us. There are the ones that are evil though. And the more we get them on camera, the more they will understand what is right and what is not right.
