Although cops delete footage or dispose of memory cards on a regular basis to prevent evidence of their wrongdoings to see the light of day, they rarely get disciplined for it.
Until today, that is, when a Nebraska prosecutor filed criminal charges against two fired cops who collaborated to steal a manís memory card after he had recorded them beating his brother.
The two officers, James Kinsella and Aaron Von Behren, were fired from the Omaha Police Department last month along with two other officers after another citizen had recorded them chasing the man into his home in March, then posting the video on Youtube.
The story went viral on PINAC because it was shocking to see a swarm of cops chase a man into his own home without a warrant when all he was doing was video recording them arresting his brother.
But Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said what took place inside the home was even more shocking with Kinsella pulling the memory card out of the phone and later throwing it away and Von Behren conspiring to help cover it up.
