I posted this at SYLG, but it deserves repeating here.
A grand jury has cleared a group of Philadelphia Police officers accused of assaulting three suspects in connection with a May 2009 shooting.
Following a year-long investigation, the grand jury concluded no criminal action is necessary against the officers involved in the arrests caught on tape following a triple shooting.
The report read in part:
“We found that the police on the scene used only the amount of force — and no more than the amount — that they reasonably believed was necessary to bring under control and into custody three suspects in a shooting who had tried to elude capture, who were resisting arrest, and who were creating a potentially significant danger to police” (LINK)
Hey Commissioner Ramsey, you may want to start that reinstatement paperwork for the four officers you summarily fired – without an interview, investigation, or hearing – right away. Douche.
