Three Connecticut police officers have been put on administrative leave after they were caught on video brutally beating a suspect in a local park.
Elson Morales, Joseph Lawlor and Clive Higgins, all 10-year veterans of the Bridgeport Police Department, are shown on the tape kicking and stomping on a man they had already subdued with a stun gun.
They will remain on paid administrative leave while the May 2011 encounter is investigated.
The sobering footage was uploaded on YouTube on January 18 by an anonymous user. It is unclear who filmed it.
In the video, which goes in and out of focus, the pop and sizzle of the electric stun gun can be heard before a man shouts ‘nice shot’ from off camera as the suspect falls to the ground.
WE KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE; THEY GET A PAID VACATION TILL PEOPLE FORGET AND THEN THEY GO BACK TO WORK DOING THE SAME THING ALL OVER AGAIN. THIS WILL BE THEIR “PUNISHMENT”.
