Posted by on Oct 30, 2018 in Featured, Other Issues, Police Brutality, Uncategorized | Comments

This is pretty wild. In one case, it took 11 years for an officer to be disciplined! Thank God the system is getting tightened up, but we can only wonder what it is like in other cities.

Another case of prison abuse. To me, I see so may … they become monotonous .. but no less outrageous.
