Police inquiry reveals violations in arrest, beating of videographer

I'm proud to be an Amurr'can...where at least I know I'm *cough...hack...spit...*

What did they do to this slob of a cop? They sent him on paid vacation.

    Las Vegas Revue Journal -

    A Las Vegas police officer under investigation for the videotaped beating of a man in March violated several Metropolitan Police Department policies, an internal investigation found.

    Mitchell Crooks' complaint about officer Derek Colling's excessive force was sustained, Deputy Chief Gary Schofield said Friday.

    The specific policy violations will not be released until the case is finalized.

    Crooks, 36, received a letter from the Internal Affairs Bureau notifying him of the findings earlier this week.

    He said he was pleasantly surprised.

    "It seems like they're saying he was guilty, which is what I've been saying," Crooks said. "I really hope he gets fired."

    Colling has been on paid suspension since April 1.

Everyone sing along!
