You absolutely need to read this story because at first you will think that it is just made up but then you will find that there is still a federal lawsuit pending.
The Daily Beast has the piece which may be found here
One night in a driving rain a Black man pulled his car off the freeway in Ferguson. A Ferguson police officer found an active warrant and arrested him. The man kept telling him that it wasn't him. When the officer tried to book him into the jail the booking officer found that the man was telling the truth they had arrested the wrong man.
Ferguson we have a problem. The solution, put him in a cell and beat him including kicking him in the head and charge him. The charge? Bleeding on the officer's uniform!
You have to read the story and then you will find that they didn't stop there the conspiracy to deprive the man of his civil right continues to this very day.
