Orlando Police are reviewing the conduct of a veteran officer accused of brutality by a woman who suffered broken front teeth and an arm bruise before being arrested.
In an arrest affidavit, Officer Livio Beccaccio wrote that Lisa Wareham pushed, hit and screamed at him while he was trying to break up a street fight near the downtown Orange County Public Library in February. She was arrested on three charges, including battery on a law-enforcement officer, a felony.
The lawyer defending Wareham in the criminal case characterized Beccaccio's treatment of the woman as a "crime."

Big deal...that's probably tame compared to what he does to his wife or girlfriend every night. Since this is criminal negligence, when litigation is filed, any resulting settlement should be paid by the cop out of his own pocket. Why is the taxpayer made responsible to pay for damages when these flunkies royally screw up because of their obviously limited brain mass and power trip obsession? There is big difference between negligence and gross criminal negligence.
