EDGAR CO., IL. (ECWd) -
We recently reported on a lawsuit (here) where an individual claims he was wrongly arrested and the handcuffs were placed on his wrists too tight, causing injuries.
After receiving what is purported to be all the video from the incident, it is evident the deputy did not keep the camera rolling ... or the Sheriff's Department did not provide all of the video we requested under the Freedom Of Information Act.
What good are cameras if they can be turned off or do not record the entire incident?
Virtually useless videos provided to us:
Link to the radio traffic audio files provided - which has none of the interaction between the deputy and the alleged victim.
