Did you hear his lawyer's statement about the incident? It's the most absurd thing ever- an insult to us all.
""Yes, there was an incident; it was an instance of self-defense and had nothing to do with my client beating him up or tuning him up or going overboard or dragging him from the car," he said. "The gentleman was looking for a fight."
Wow.... the video tape shows how utterly false that is, and a woman who was riding with Polite intervened to stop Polite from pummeling the victim. Really, where are Perez and Ganim on this? If you want people to respect your city you HAVE to man up and deal with the bad apples in a public way. And this is the second bad apple for the Guardians (black police officers), the first being the faked noose incident. The Guardians have a cause and presumably want to correct racial wrongs- yet they beg some unflattering conclusions based on the lack of integrity of their leaders.
Really, many of Bridgeport's problems are very, very straightforward to address- the problem lies with the people who are supposed to be leading and addressing these issues.

This Thug and Bully belongs in jail for life. I hope that he sue for all that he is worth. Shame on him.
