He ain’t heavy, he’s a cop
Another case of Police giving people the bash, and seeing as two cops (the one using a dog as a weapon and the one shooting randomly at fellow cops) both walked free (cops walking free from charges – how very usual), I doubt these cops will get convicted. You have to beat a woman on video and then try and destroy the evidence before you’ll get a suspended sentence I guess, although you have to say, 4 cops beating on one person is almost Australian.
Officers in court over attack claim
Four police officers have been charged over the alleged bashing of a man in police cells at Whakatane.
Police said yesterday the male officers had appeared in court and faced a range of charges, including assault with a weapon.
"There are multiple charges on some officers which arise out of the same incident," said Bay of Plenty district commander Superintendent Gary Smith.
He would not go into detail about the nature and number of charges each officer faced.
The four were granted interim name suppression at the appearance in Whakatane District Court late on Wednesday.
