White Cop Who Beat Black Man Avoids Jail Because He Teaches How Not To Abuse People
[su_right_ad]John Cerulli, was a Buffalo police officer when a video went viral of him beating John Willet, a black man who was handcuffed at the time. But Cerulli won’t be seeing any jail time.
Instead, Cirulli was sentenced to one-year probation on Monday by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Skretny…
According to Buffalo News, Cirulli didn’t go to jail partly because he and the FBI are teaching other cops not to commit human rights violations.
Judge Skretny said that Cirulli’s work with the FBI will help prevent “culture” of excessive force in some police departments.
“There is a mentality, a culture, that is sometimes worrisome,” Judge Skretny…
In addition to the assault, Cirulli also admitted that he took a cell phone from the bystander who filmed the incident, but Cirulli was unaware the witness gave him a second phone without the beating video.
There was no such court leniency for Willet who did four months in jail for the drug charge that Cirulli arrested him for.
