Colorado cops refuse to release report of man arrested after filming them
Colorado Springs police are refusing to release an arrest report of a man who says he was beaten by cops after filming them beating another man.
Marc Johnson is suing the city of Colorado Springs as well as Officer Peter Tornitsch, who allegedly punched him in October 2008 as he was filming the other incident.
Johnson was charged with resisting arrest and “possibly obstruction” – and for all we know, it could be a number of other things considering they have yet to release the report.
The Colorado Springs Gazette filed a public records request on May 7th for the arrest report, but police have flatly refused to release it to them.
Meanwhile, Johnson’s attorney is refusing to release the video that allegedly shows police beating up another man.
My question is, what is everybody trying to hide?
