Baltimore Cop Caught On Video Punching Suspect Repeatedly

News — September 16, 2014 at 6:57 pm by

Kollin Truss, 32, has filed a $35 million lawsuit against Officer Vincent Cosom and the Baltimore City Police for Cosom’s deplorable actions. After Cosom beat Truss, he filed a report that appears to be full of shit. Cosom claimed that Truss “got into a fighting stance and clenched his fist,” so he had hit him in order to protect himself. Truss was arrested and charged with assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, intoxication, and other misdemeanors. Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts was understandably very upset with Officer Cosom’s behavior. He said, “This will not be tolerated. Much like the public, I was shocked, I’m outraged, I’m disgusted by what I saw by an employee of the Baltimore Police Department. Nothing that I saw on that video is defensible, nor should it be defensible, and most importantly, it’s unacceptable and will not be tolerated within this organization.” Cosom has been placed on paid administrative leave, and the case is being investigated by Internal Affairs.
