(VIDEO) Albuquerque officer beats surrendered man, conducts illegal entry
Apparently Albuquerque, NM police believe smoking marijuana is a crime that endangers their lives or the lives of others.
This was made clear by footage shot from the lapel camera of one Officer Connor Rice who claimed “hot pursuit” before unlawfully barging into someone’s apartment and subsequently tasering an occupant.
The incident happened on May 31 and has led to a criminal summons being issued to Officer Rice.
The footage was released last Thursday in response to a public records request from reporters and a lawsuit filed by local TV station KRQE.
