So cops puts man in coma after beating him near death, man still suffers and most likely will never be the same, and the prosecution only asked for 7 years? Then the judge only gave him 43 months with only 2/3 or less to be served behind bars?!!!! Really? If a non-cop did this they would've thrown the book at them.

Yeah, protective custody (i.e., "punk city") is the place for a hide-behind-the-badge punk like Clifford!

It'd be nice if he runs into a few guys he once arrested. I'm sure they'll keep him entertained.
