    • Update: Jackson, Mississippi: The last of three officers [Anthony Ricardo Payne] charged in a bribery case pleaded guilty. He was indicted for taking bribes in order to protect drug shipments. It turned out the men they thought were drug dealers were really undercover FBI agents.

    • Update: Sarasota, Florida: An officer [Scott Patrick] was fired after he was caught on video beating and choking a man [Jason Dragash] outside of a nightclub. “I don’t think there is clearer evidence of a potential civil rights violation than a video beating by a law enforcement officer against a citizen of the community,” said the man’s attorney.
