On Monday (Nov. 28), five Connecticut police officers were charged with misdemeanors after a person in their custody became paralyzed during a transport. Officers searched him and found a small amount of marijuana, leading to his arrest. Randy Cox was then placed in the back of a police cruiser, where he was allegedly beaten by the officers.

He was later taken to the hospital, where it was discovered that he had suffered a spinal injury that left him paralyzed from the neck down. The five officers – Darrin Spaulding, Patrick Moynahan, Robert Lawrence, Joshua Lawler and Craig Chandler – have now been charged with misdemeanor counts of second-degree assault and falsifying evidence.

This is yet another example of police brutality against a black person resulting in serious injuries or death. In recent years, there have been many high-profile cases of black people being killed by police. Police brutality against black people is a major problem in the United States, and these latest charges against the Connecticut officers are a step in the right direction towards bringing justice to those who have been harmed by such brutality.

” The state’s attorney’s office released a statement on Monday announcing the charges against the officers, which include negligent homicide, excessive use of force, and reckless endangerment. If convicted, the officers could face up to one year in prison.
