Buffalo Cops Caught on Video Beating Handcuffed Man for Traffic Infraction (PINAC)
Tuesday April 29th, 2014
Buffalo police say they are “investigating” an incident caught on video showing officers beating a handcuffed man as he pleads for mercy and apologizes for committing the traffic infraction that led to the beating.
But considering they are not releasing any other information, including the names of the officers involved, it’s pretty obvious they are resorting to the usual damage control and coverup that results in little, if any, disciplinary action.
Instead, Buffalo Police Commissioner Daniel Derenda told the media that “it’s going to take a little bit of time” to find out whether the cops were out of line.
But all it really takes is 80 seconds, the length of the video, which was first posted on Cop Block last week. The video unexplainably cuts off as soon as the beating gets even more vicious.
