Third Rochester, NY Police Officer Gets Paid Vacation After Yet Another Case of Excessive Force


Rochester, NY Mayor Lovely Warren and Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli announce suspension of third RPD cop.  

By Davy V. 

For the third time this week, another Rochester, NY Police officer has been suspended after using excessive force.

Suspended with pay of course.

Hence the "paid vacation" part of the title above.

In the latest incident, according to Rochester, NY Police Chief Michael Ciminelli, RPD body-cam footage shows a 27-year veteran Rochester Police officer choking a handcuffed man.

Since choke holds can be fatal and therefore are illegal and against department policy, Chief Ciminelli said the FBI is assisting in the investigation.

Earlier this week, I posted a video to my YouTube channel DavyVTV which shows a black man being grabbed and lifted up off his dirt bike by Rochester, NY Police officers, and then body slammed to the ground.

That video led to two of the officers in that incident, both veteran RPD officers who were training new recruits, being suspended.

Rochester, NY Police Chief Michael Ciminelli refused to release the names of the three officers who have been suspended.

I will be updating this story.
