NYPD Officer David London acquitted of charges in the brutal baton beating of Walter Harvin, unarmed black Iraq war veteran even though video shows he
It is unconscionable that yet another police officer has walked scot-free after being accused of police brutality. David London, a 15 year veteran of the New York Police Department was acquitted in the brutal 2008 beating of Walter Harvin, an Iraqi war veteran, who was unarmed and in a prone position, according to the NY Post. This is bad and sends a horrible signal about the perceived right of police officers to engage in questionable behavior free from prosecution.
Is Walter Harvin's rights worth nothing? He reportedly sustained more than 20 blows to the head and shoulders by London's metal police baton. This is further proof why many New Yorkers hate the NYPD. They get away with unlawful behavior.
