    stated that the defense lawyer said he was already aware of the punch.

    So either a witness recounted it or he'd already seen this video.

    I don't think all evidence in the case is necessarily made public.

    The crooks are leaving office, unprosecuted and scot-free.

    •  I agree this is likely: (3+ / 0-)

      I don't think all evidence in the case is necessarily made public.

      However, questions will be asked by many as why this particular evidence was not made public. Was there any communication between the investigators and the news station, such as approval or disapproval of this release?

      •  why not arrested yet? (6+ / 0-)

        the question must be, why hasn't Officer Tony "The Puncher" Pirone been arrested already?

        if someone punched a cop for no reason (or even with reason), they wouldn't spend any longer than the severe and merciless beating they would receive before they were arrested.

        Almost half of all Americans vote against what is best for themselves and best for America. We call them, Republicans.

          case the authorities (or someone) are trying to keep quiet. How widely is this case even reported outside of a few journalists in the Bay Area?
