Veteran DUI Officer Jerry Davenport must not like veterans. He was alleged to have smacked one around on an arrest he made. Props to Dr. Hyma with the Dade County Medical Examiners Office for calling it like he sees it.
Lets see the circumstantial chain of evidence:
Defendant in Custody Of Davenport at Station.
Davenport says “woops…he fell.”
Dr. Hyma says- nope- he was punched.
Davenport has prior history of excessive violence.
Defendant PASSES polygraph.
Hmm… Seems like a pretty good case to us.
Read the report for yourself:
Reminds us of the old joke:
How many City Of Miami Police Officers does it take to throw a defendant down a flight of stairs?NONE- He fell.
