Enhanced Video Evidence Exonerates Officer

After a DOC inmate surprised and attacked a Corrections Officer, the Officers in the unit responded to restrain the inmate and clear the area. During a routine review of the video surveillance, the DOC investigators saw what appeared to be a BLDS member kicking the restrained inmate as he walked by his head. After a two day Commissioner’s hearing in which the investigator introduced the surveillance video as well as an enhanced version of the video, the Commissioner did not sustain the charges of using excessive force against the inmate.
