Ex-officer cleared in post-Katrina beating

I am so tired of hearing about cases like this.  I saw the video clip which was recorded by a citizen walking by, and the police beat this man for no reason.  It is a shame that even with video footage as evidence, police brutality still exists.

The judge in this case had the nerve to say that he didn’t even find this a close call.  Even though the officers were fired from the force for beating this retired school teacher, a Judge still found them not guilty of beating this man. 

The officers said Davis, who had returned to New Orleans to check his property, started a confrontation after they stopped him on suspicion of being drunk. Davis, who was booked with public intoxication but never charged, said he hadn’t been drinking.

Truly amazing……
