The prison guard vs. the Boston cops

You may have read the other day about Michael O'Brien's suit against several Boston police officers, alleging they nearly choked and beat him to death when he started recording them after a minor fender bender involving his friend.

Read his entire complaint on the alleged incident on Hanover Street, which O'Brien says started when his friend clipped a double-parked BMW belonging to a guy who claimed to be a federal agent.

The city and the sued officers have yet to respond to the complaint, filed last week.

antagonists of Dick Lehr's "The Fence", can still be allowed to wear the uniform, then the BPD contracts and personnel management practices seem to present more serious issues than even the notorious firefighter agreements. It appears that police brutality may be on the rise around here, but the Globe and Herald seem generally unfazed by these recent allegations.
