Cop Gets A Lesson on Police Brutality When He's Beaten By Other Cops

A Pennsylvania State Trooper, David Williams, is suing the city of Pittsburgh and four police officers following his own brutal arrest in September. This cop on cop violence was caught on surveillance video.

The encounter began at Williams’ brother’s wedding reception where a server alleged that the groom got “touchy-feely” with her and tried to pressure her into drinking alcohol despite her informing him that she was pregnant.

The uncomfortable woman called her boyfriend to come pick her up, and upon arrival, the man confronted the groom about his behavior. A fight broke out between the two men, and when police arrived a confrontation between the officers and Williams began. The arresting officers claim that Williams would not move back and became aggressive with the police.

Williams was ultimately arrested for allegedly ignoring police orders to stand back and fighting with officers, CBS reported. The trooper and his lawyer are disputing the official story and say that the video proves that the Pittsburgh officers were the ones who assaulted him.
“Throwing him to the ground, punching him in the head, kicking him in the groin, and for that conduct, he was then charged with criminal offenses that he didn’t commit in an effort to justify these abusive tactics,” his attorney Tim O’Brien told KDKA.
The video very clearly shows Williams being kicked and assaulted.
“These officers’ false reports destroyed my reputation, traumatized my family and nearly caused me to lose my job and my liberty. If I hadn’t discovered the surveillance videotape, I might never have been able to clear my name,” Williams said in a statement to KDKA.
This is not the first time we have seen that thin blue line injuring its own.

In February, an officer responding to a domestic disturbance at a North Texas residence, shot and killed an off-duty sheriff’s deputy.
