Its really hard to judge without knowing the full story, who knows if that guy had the police chasing him for hours and putting others life in danger or if he killed/hurt someone. Still that does not excuse the behavior of the officer, they need people to train them to not take things personally specially since that job tends to attract people who already not very balanced. Would still like to know everything that happened.

"I would have relieved you of your post"- R. Paul to H. Clinton.

I would have relieved these 3 bastards of their duties.

Then thrown them in general population with the rest of their kind.

Thugs in suits...



"Almost two years after beating a stunned and unresponsive suspect in a public park, three Connecticut cops were finally placed on "desk duty" yesterday after footage of the attack had been made public."

Source: gawker.com...


The police chief in Bridgeport, Conn., the state’s largest city, moved three officers to desk duty AFTER a video appeared on YouTube in which they stomped on and repeatedly kicked a man after a stun gun had already rendered him inert, reported the Associated Press.

The video is from May 2011. It was published on YouTube on Jan. 6, although it was only recently brought to the police chief’s attention.

At one point a witness yells at the officers, ‘You got him, cut the (expletive).’

According to The Post, police sources said the man was being pursued by officers following reports that he had a gun. When the officers finally subdued him, no gun was found, but the man was wearing a holster, the source said.

The man was charged in the incident and did not file a complaint against the police officers. The sources told The Post that the man, who wasn’t seriously injured in the beating, is now serving prison time on unrelated charges.

Elson Morales, Joseph Lawlor and Clive Higgins, all 10-year veterans of the Bridgeport Police Department, are shown on the video attacking the suspect as he lay on the grass. The officers have been put on paid administrative leave while the May 2011 encounter is investigated. The sobering footage was uploaded on YouTube on Jan. 18 by an anonymous user. It is unclear who filmed it.

We have no idea what this guy did to generate the hate obviously shown by the cops. Was he running for a shoplifting charge or did someone just catch him raping a 5yr old girl? All kinds of reasons people get chased by police and if the latter? I wouldn't want them fired...I'd ask why they stopped without doing more.

On the other hand..if this was a nickle and dime routine bust? Indeed, I'd want those 3 in psych evaluations with their job hanging in the balance at the very least.

So.. Anyone know what the actual offense was? This can't be as empty and vague for actual circumstances as the source piece leaves it.

Good lord I am so sick of these cops doing this kind of crap. People need to remind them that they work FOR us and not against us. That holier than thou attitude is going to just get them fired, and it's our responsibility to continue to bring these situations to light.

Just like a recently released video of some cops beating a man who was experiencing diabetic shock. They hit first, ask questions later, then have the nerve to laugh about it.

I'll see if I can find the link.

Idiot Cops
