"SALINAS, Calif. -- A man who was mistaken for a robber and ended up with a face broken in six places filed a lawsuit against the city and two officers on Thursday.
Ryan Favila said that on Oct. 18, 2007 he was mistaken for a car thief, thrown to the ground and then kicked in the face by Salinas police officer Michael Cupak.
Favila sustained a fractured nose and bones in his face broke in six places."
The problem, IMO, - what will cause great trouble soon, I think - is that the police almost always clear each other of brutality charges. It leaves people feeling there is no justice?
