CCRB to probe allegation Bronx cop blinded woman; cleared by NYPD, officer could now face charges

I found this very hard to read.

In the USA today, this is what happens if you dare to even touch a cop.

CCRB to probe allegation Bronx cop blinded woman; cleared by NYPD, officer could now face charges

"The Civilian Complaint Review Board is investigating a Bronx cop accused of beating a woman blind during an arrest, the Daily News has learned.

The move opens the door to possible administrative charges against Officer Theresa Lustica, whom the Internal Affairs Bureau previously said did not use excessive force during a June assault arrest of Johanna Pagan-Alomar after she asked Lustica why a friend was handcuffed.

Pagan-Alomar, 45, said Lustica cursed and disrespected her after she questioned the officer ó and that she threw her onto the ground, using a handcuff key as a weapon while repeatedly punching the mother of two. Pagan-Alomarís left eye was knocked out of its socket, she said, and had to be removed.

Lustica arrested Pagan-Alomar for allegedly shoving the officer, knocking her off her balance. But video of the beginning of the incident shows no such shove; what it does show appears to be a tap on the officerís back. Pagan-Alomar denied making physical contact."

I mean, just WTF? Really? This is policing in the largest city in the nation in the 21st century?

Police unions need to be broken up and civilian review boards need to become the norm. No more bullshit "internal" investigations. It's like handing the mueller report to barr time and time again ad nauseum.
