This was a terrible assault performed by Chief Hesse and apparently not witnessed by the other officers. They will have to fully testify on the stand and come out about their actions and reasons for them against Hesse's testimony or they're as guilty as he is.

if an officer saw this man littering at the beach it would make things simpler to just conk him on the head with the billy club and make him pick up the bottle.
things have gotten way too formal.

They are not COPS, they are bullies who thought they were above the law, and frankly should have known better. Getting your butt kicked and getting beaten to the point you need surgery arent the same thing.

This is why I have none! 80% of them should never be allowed to carry guns! They all have this idea in their heads that they can get away with whatever they want with out recourse b/c boys in blue stick together! And, they wonder why we have no respect for them!

I also can't help but wonder how many bi-stander cops just stood around and allowed it to happen!

Hey, it's not a cops job to prevent an assault on a suspect.....no wait, that is a cop's job.

Uh, perhaps he deserved it? has the Suffolk DA and Cops released the suspects criminal records yet?

This is not isolated- It happens often enough that people are standing up, and want the federal government to do something.But you cannot trust the government to police its own, visit my blog njoversight.blogspot.com for information on how you can help...

Michael: if you have a criminal record, do you deserve to be hospitalized? This idea of DESERVING any treatment is the attitude of a cop, someone who is sworn to "PROTECT and serve." Tell me how these guys were protecting or serving.... njoversight.blogspot.com

Tommy, you obviously missed the sarcasm in my post. Folks with criminal records do not deserve to be physically manhandled, punched, or even given dirty looks by cops, for the SIMPLE FACT THEY SIGNED ON THE JOB TO HANDLE, YUP....folks with criminal records. Seriously, a cop beating up a criminal, makes as much sense as a doctor beating up a patient cuz he asked for medicine; or a lawyer beating up their client cuz he asked for advice.

Hey, in NYC, a criminal record is the difference between the NYPD being justified in shooting unarmed young dark-skinned people, and being convicted of a crime when shooting unarmed, young dark-skinned people.

If the DA is consistent with his method of persecuting, he has frightened this witness- to be to lie in this case. Mr.Spota should concentrate on another brutality case he has before him with a very credible witness he has since deemed not credible - a federal agent.

Quite a broad statement. How often does the DA of Suffolk County supported perjury, everyday?

It's posts like this Pete I wonder if you are medicated. Other times your posts are well written and responsible.

It's difficult to take someone serious when they allege a DA supports perjury and threatens witnesses. This conspiracy would have to involve dozens of people, but they all remain mum cause Pete says so.

Then the elder gentleman goes off and calls others here a s.bag. Take your meds Pete.

Hey Pete, SCPD fatally shot an armed drug dealer this week.

Was that the DA silencing a witness too?
