Video: Delaware Police Officer Soccer Kicks Suspect

Maybe the officer thought he was in a Pride match, no?

In all seriousness, what is wrong with these cops? All cops aren’t bad, but the ones being caught doing illegal acts are making it hard for the cops looking to protect the public.

DOVER, DE — A police dashcam video shows a black suspect being kicked in the face by a white Dover police officer who was charged this week with assault.

The video released Thursday by police is part of a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union over the August 2013 incident.

The video shows Cpl. Thomas Webster IV, who was responding to a disturbance at a gas station, kicking Lateef Dickerson. Dickerson, responding to commands to get on the ground, is on his hands and knees.

Webster was arrested Monday after a grand jury indicted him for second-degree assault.

A previous grand jury declined to indict Webster last year, and the U.S. attorney’s office found no civil rights violation.

The ACLU subsequently sued police on Dickerson’s behalf.
