LYNCH DEFENDS OFFICER’S VIDEOTAPED ACTIONS

 

PBA president Lynch said:

"This suspect and another armed individual who is still being sought committed a crime.  When identified by a complainant and confronted by police he ran and when caught, refused to comply with the officer’s legal orders as they attempted to take him into custody.  The arrestee is a career criminal with many prior arrests who is now resorting to the legal extortion of money through the courts by suing in several cases where he was arrested.  If the crime didn’t pay enough, the lawsuit might.”
