An Under-reported Instance of Police Brutality

Sgt. Mark England got pulled out of a security line at the Las Vegas airport for having a bottle of Sprite. The TSA agent claimed to be an Army lieutenant. England asked him to show his ID; he refused. England went on to try to get on his plane, but it had left. He came back to the checkpoint and asked to speak to a TSA supervisor about the agent’s actions. At that point a Las Vegas Metro cop pulled him aside and, as caught on video, started beating him, then tasered him. The police department did not take the cops off the job during the investigation, claimed they were within policy before the investigation, and cleared them of any wrongdoing. No charges were made against England. He got a black eye and cracked-ribs, and is suing. Family web page.
