[su_right_ad]The man who was beaten is considering filing suit.

Buffalo Police Officer Corey Krug was caught on camera by one of our 7 Eyewitness News Photographers, hitting a man with his baton, early on Thanksgiving morning.

Krug is off the job and is suspended without pay.  Police are looking into the video and what Krug is recorded doing.

While it’s unclear if or when he’ll return to work, we’re told this is just the beginning of the process, now that the video has become public.

With his nightstick in hand, Officer Corey Krug stormed down Chippewa Street, early Thanksgiving morning.  Video shows him going to confront a man, who was seemingly about to get into a fight.  But confrontation quickly turned physical.

Officers rushed to the scene.  Krug told the man on the ground to get up.  The officer winds up and swings his baton again.

Those officers who rushed to the scene told Krug he was being recorded on camera.

    “…we’re told this is just the beginning of the process, now that the video has become public.”

    In other words, if this hadn’t been made public, this cop would still be out there beating people.

    we all know, that this been a black male, there would have been charges and the officer would have been on paid vacation. but, white guy, no charges, suspended w/o pay. i wonder if he’ll be indicted for assault. go figure.
