recently a chief of police was arrested due to police brutality. He uses force and torture in order to solve a rubbery case. Residence in his area of responsibility said that this officer was like a terror in their area and residence are terrified whenever his around. Is this right to justified that in order to save a case you must torture the suspect in order to tell the truth? some of his victim was minors and convicted by thief and rubbery. Many parents complaints about it but nothing to do because his the chief of police in the area. This officer in uniform has pending case of rubbery extortion, neglecting of duty but still he was promoted to Chief of police due to plenty of case solve due to torture and police brutality.

The policeman had no right to treat someone like that unless it's for self-defense, which was obviously not the case. Apparently, the robber looked really helpless and there are other ways to keep him tied down with handcuffs only, because that's what they are for, and not torture the guy like that. It's not just physical abuse that was shown there, authority abuse can also be seen. Just because he has the upper hand, it doesn't mean he can do whatever he wants.

If I'm being tortured that way I'll confessed to anything even if I didn't do it, so i don't think its justifiable at all. They need to look at the cases he apparently "solved" to make sure that its not just those hurried case. Even if the suspect confessed they should still be proper investigation.. i guess its easier to torture people than to really do proper fieldwork and investigation to solve a case... laziness puts innocent people to jail while those who are really guilty are free to go.
