Assaulted a guy for daring to stand on his 4th Amendment rights?
Resigned rather than be fired, and is facing two charges. For some reason neither of them is assault, and there's nothing about the violation of civil rights, though.
And what about the other deputy? The one who stood there and watched and did or said nothing, and didn't report this? He gets off free, it appears.
Now the whining and justification starts:
Asked if he would have handled the matter the same way again, Glans
said he would, but not if he knew it was being filmed. He acknowledged
that he did not know the incident was being videotaped.
“I was concerned. It was a public safety issue,” the sergeant said.
“If I had to do it all over again … I’d probably do the same thing. If I
knew the camera was there, no, because it does look bad.”
Think about that. "Yes, I'd commit assault and make threats and violate his rights again, long as I knew it wasn't on camera." And he thinks this is a "I'm a caring law officer" defense? And this asshole was a SUPERVISOR?
Makes you wonder who all else he's done this to over time, and gotten away with it.
Cameras. On every officer. And recordings MUST be made available, and it's a firing offense for your camera to be turned off or become 'inoperable' during an incident.
