But the local police union boss defended his officers. “Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of two of their members, who were simply executing orders,” said John Evans, PBA president, according to WGRZ.

Good riddance. We don’t need your kind of filth on the police force. Don’t come back. You are part of the problem, not the solution.
