FOX31 Denver has obtained video of a Denver Police officer punching an unarmed suspect in the face six times, then moments later, tripping the man’s seven-and-a-half-months pregnant girlfriend.
A witness who recorded the August arrest on his Samsung tablet said police then seized his tablet, over his objections, and when they returned it to him, the video of the arrest was missing.
However, the witness said he was able to recover the 55 second video clip because his tablet had stored it in the cloud.
The police need a warrant to search electronics. They obtained the information through coercion. Always backup immediately to someone online, install the ACLU-NJ Police Tape app or, when you get home, try recuva to restore the file.
