From the Washington Post:
IF A WITNESS hadnít shot video of two Prince Georgeís County police officers savagely beating John McKenna, a University of Maryland student, after a March 2010 menís basketball game, that would probably have been the end of it. The officers didnít file a report, as required, on their use of force. When initially questioned about the beating, they lied. And when they filled out the initial paperwork on the incident, police said Mr. McKenna had sustained his injuries, including a concussion, from being kicked by a police horse.Yes, a real eye-opener. Consider: If there was no video, the cover-up would have succeeded. Even with compelling videotaped evidence of wrongdoing, just a slap on the writsĖjust enough to say, ďsomething was done about it.Ē
