York County, PA Officer Allegedly Punched & Slapped Handcuffed Woman, Threw Man To Ground Breaking Ribs [Video] (ABC27)

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) - A York County police officer has been named in two new federal civil rights lawsuits that accuse him of using excessive force during arrests that were recorded by video cameras.
The separate suits filed Thursday allege the Springettsbury Township patrolman punched and slapped a woman while she was handcuffed in the back of a police car in April 2011, according to attorney Devon Jacob.
"The fact that this has all occurred and there has been silence out there and these three officers remain out on the street is extremely troubling and should be very scary to everybody living in that township," said Jacob.
No criminal charges have been filed against the officers.
