Cops don’t care. They just don’t care. Put microphones on them, they don’t care. Put body cams on them, they don’t care. Record them with your phone, they don’t care. They are our occupying military. They are armed rage junkies who believe they’ve been given license to beat the shit out of anyone who even looks at them wrong. Their attitude is, “Serve and protect? FUCK YOU, SHUT THE FUCK UP RIGHT NOW!”
A Colorado police officer pleaded guilty to attempted third degree assault after he was recorded on body camera video repeatedly beating a handcuffed man.
Video of the December incident obtained by KMGH shows Federal Heights Officer Mark Magness appearing to punch and kick a suspect while pulling him from a patrol car at the police station. A minute later, Magness slams the man into a concrete wall.
Video later shows Magness flying into a rage after the man lunges at him inside a holding cell. Another officer reminds Magness that he is being recorded by body cam video, but Magness continues to beat the suspect.
“I’m sorry sir,” the bloody man says as he is thrown into a chair. Magness ignores him, pressing his fingers into his eyes and temples.
Although the man appears to be pinned into the chair, Magness accuses him of resisting and straps him down.
“We’re going to need medical,” the second officer calls out.
“I don’t care, strap him to the chair,” Magness says as the second officer again points to his body camera.
Dennis Discua told KMGH that Magness also used excessive force on him in 2009. The officer pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor and paid $517 in fines in that case.
