Police is a very important job. When a police officer does something like beating or just not treating a civilian with respect it make the community think if they are really save.

One of the officers would charge an extra $800 for using his patrol vehicle. This case is still on going and for the police officers that were involved in exchanging backpacks will have a mandatory 10 years in prison.

They should get a hard penalty for doing what they did also so other police officers think twice before doing something illegal.
