    • Omega, Georgia: The police chief [Walter Young] was sentenced to two years in prison for slapping and punching an inmate [Alfonso Moreno] at a county jail. “There was no excuse for this use of force on a restrained individual and excessive force by those sworn to uphold the law will not be tolerated. The Justice Department will continue to vigorously prosecute law enforcement officers who violate the constitutional rights of others,” said the Assistant Attorney General.

    • McAlester, Oklahoma: An officer [Sterling Lee Taylor-Santino] has been arraigned and charged with felony assault and battery for allegedly tasing a handcuffed woman [Nakina Williams, 28] at point blank range.
