    An Internal Affairs investigation found no misconduct among officers who spoke with the clerk about the tape.

    All of those assholes, including the IA puppets, should never be allowed to work in law enforcement again. Sadists with a badge.

    Oh, and they should be made to kneel down in public every day for the rest of their lives. Disgraceful the way power is allowed to be abused when it's part of a sacred public trust.

    I am guessing that the good people of Philadelphia are going to be on the hook for about three or four million bucks, while the cop ends up on paid leave for a couple of years due to stress-related causes.

    Cop should never wear a badge again. Coming in with his gun drawn like that? Nevermind assaulting an unarmed woman from behind, it's a lucky thing that no one was shot that night.

    The way he kept going after her, if any of her friends had lost their cool and gone after him (and frankly, he deserved to get his ass whipped, badge or not), they might well have been shot.

    That's a man who in no way deserves the public trust.

    Frankly, the others in the car should start reporting some whiplash pain after the rear-ender and get a few grand out of it from the insurance company.

    What would the defense do? Use the video tape to prove that the others were fine?

    Shouldn't the son be prosecuted for filing a false police report if he lied about the guy carrying a gun?

    Well, in the officer's defense, the woman's last name is Lawless...

    Just when you think Philly cops couldn't sink any lower.
