[su_right_ad]Baltimore has had to pay out millions of dollars in settlements to black citizens who were beaten by police. This is the latest incident, now being reviewed by the city.

[The] video appears to show Baltimore police beating Jamar Kennedy outside a bar last Tuesday night.

According to CBS Baltimore, in the video…Kennedy is hit with a baton by a Baltimore police officer. Moments later, when Kennedy is kneeling, he is shocked with a Taser by another officer.

“I have not come to any conclusion at this point. Every action and inaction will be reviewed in question and up to policy and asked if that action was necessary,” Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said in a statement.

Kennedy, who was left bloodied, is facing charges of second-degree assault and resisting arrest, reports The Baltimore Sun.

    The Baltimore Sun has been running the results of a 6-month investigations in their Sunday paper the last couple of weeks. It’s mind boggling. More than one officer has had multiple lawsuits filed against them and one officer alone has cost the city approx $600,000 alone.

      Taxpayer money is being wasted. There should be a lot more outrage in Baltimore. Wonder how many other cities have this problem that is not being reported?

    If this has been going on for a while then why do these cops still have jobs? Why haven’t they been locked up? Oh wait…it’s because they are cops and cops are privileged to act as they please because…they are cops….
