Judge Finds Cop Not Guilty of Assault after Refusing to Watch Video of Assault
(CARLOS MILLER) A St. Louis cop is caught on video, slamming his forearm across the face of a handcuffed teenage suspect. Rory Bruce not only gets fired for the incident that took place last year, but ended up charged with assault – something you rarely see happen. However, when Bruce stepped in front of the judge to be tried this week, the judge refused to watch the video that came from a surveillance camera from the back of a police transport vehicle. As a result, Judge Theresa Counts Burke found him not guilty.
