LAPD’s Beck Faults Other Officers In “Horrific” Kicking, Hitting Of Man


In October, a Los Angeles police officer was caught on video kicking and hitting a man as he lay face-down on a sidewalk. Officer Richard Garcia’s actions drew concerns from police officials — one called the footage “horrific” — and prompted prosecutors to take the rare step of charging the officer with assault, says the Los Angeles Times. A new report shows that Police Chief Charlie Beck has also faulted the actions of other officers involved in Clinton Alford’s arrest, including a second officer who the chief said used unreasonable force when he kicked Alford and stood on his feet.
