Fascism in America: Albuquerque police promote terror cop who burned off homeless man's ear

RT America | May 16, 2014 | CHANNEL

The Albuquerque Police Department is promoting an officer found guilty of excessive use of force to a new position meant to address allegations that the department frequently demonstrates excessive use of force. After a video of a homeless man being shot and killed by officers in March sparked protests, the Department of Justice investigated the city's police and found systemic violations and improper behavior. To make reforms, the APD created the position of Major and appointed Timothy Gonterman, it announced Thursday. A judge ruled the city had to pay $300,000 to a homeless man in 2006 after finding Eden had used excessive force with his stun gun. RT's Ameera David has more details on the controversial move.
