Chicago Cop Sentenced to 2 Years in Beating

He was caught on video. (Cops still haven’t figured out that cameras are everywhere.) Chicago police officer gets 2 years for beating store clerk | Chicago Sun-Times

federal jurors convicted veteran police officer Aldo Brown of using excessive force when he pummeled and kicked a South Side store clerk in front of a camera.

His lawyer says that this “sends a message” that cops can’t do “proactive” police work. Translation: The law shouldn’t apply to cops.

But the judge saw things differently.
