Denver Cops Brutally Assault Innocent Cyclist

Ever wonder why people don't trust the police anymore? Again, I feel bad for the minority, the few good cops that want to make a difference and serve the public. Too bad its assholes like this that ruin it for the others. Who's policing the police?

On the video, which was shot outside Coors Field on the home opener of the Colorado Rockies game on April 4, undercover Denver Police detectives hit, kick and choke John Heaney.

“They both unloaded on me and I started seeing stars and the whole thing was just bam, bam, bam after that,” said Heaney. “Someone had a chokehold and they were all on top of me and I couldn’t breathe and I thought I was going to die.”

After three detectives had Heaney facedown on the ground with his hands behind his back, the video shows undercover Det. Michael Cordova pull Heaney’s hair, lift up his head and slam it into the ground, breaking two of his teeth on the cement.

Cordova and Costigan are still on duty while the investigation is underway. Once the police investigation is complete, it will be sent to the Denver District Attorney’s office for review.

Here's the TV news story. Pretty appalling.
