McLEAN, Va. — A former Loudoun County sheriff's deputy is facing a federal civil rights lawsuit after a patrol car camera appeared to show him knocking out an unsuspecting target with a blow to the back of the head delivered at a full sprint.After giving the man brain damage, the cop charged him with assaulting a police officer.
Interestingly, it was Garcia who wound up being charged following the November 2009 incident with assaulting a police officer. Court records show he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of misdemeanor battery and received a suspended sentence.Note, the police likely intimidated him into taking a plea deal through threatening him with a felony trial. (See this article, "The Police State Abolishes the Trial" for an explanation of how this scam works.)
In the lawsuit, Glasberg writes that Garcia consistently denied assaulting anyone, but opted to plead guilty to a reduced charge with a suspended sentence to avoid a felony trial. And Glasberg said the criminal allegations are unrelated to the assault Garcia suffered; even if the incident had unfolded as police described, it would have been minutes before Daniel's attack on Garcia, Glasberg said.How many incidents like this happen without being caught on tape?
