This video is of an officer pushing a woman down the stairs, for no reason. The news station only says that the investigation came about after they found the video. So I guess it’s safe to assume that this video was being hidden from the public? Another thing to point out is how the chief emphasizes the discipline the officer is facing. Paid administrative duty, dressing in civilian clothes and an investigation from his buddies.
If this were anyone else, one who doesn’t carry a badge or wear a uniform, they would have been arrested, locked up and put on trial. They wouldn’t get to keep their job, nor would they receive the luxury of having their friends investigate them.
When police break the laws they need to face the same exact punishment they would enforce on us.
