"MASSACHUSETTS — (Scroll down for video) — A former Hadley Police Department Officer was found guilty today of using unreasonable force during an arrest and then falsifying a police report of the incident.

Christopher M. Roeder, 49, of Agawam, was convicted by a federal jury after a seven-day trial of one count of deprivation of rights under color of law and one count of falsification of a document.

Evidence presented at trial established that, on April 3, 2017, Roeder struck an arrestee in the face without legal justification, while the arrestee was seated on a bench in the Hadley Police Department booking area. The strike fractured the arrestee’s nose in multiple places and required plastic surgery to repair.

It was further established that Roeder subsequently attempted to obstruct the investigation into his assault of the arrestee by falsifying his police report describing the incident."

"The charge of deprivation of civil rights under color of law resulting in injury provides for a sentence of no greater than 10 years in prison, three years of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000.

1. Did the other officers present report him?

If not, they need to go as well.

There should be ZERO tolerance for any abusing of the power we give law enforcement.

2. Agree completely

It only gives ammo to those who want to tear down all cops.
