A Slap on the Wrist

So what do you think should happen to a bunch of cops who hit (non-violent) people with truncheons and left 200 people (including reporters) injured? No LAPD officers will be fired in 2007 May Day incident - Los Angeles Times One officer was suspended for 20 days. The rest received less censure than that.
An internal investigation into the incident that left more than 200 demonstrators and journalists reporting injuries blamed poor leadership, overly aggressive tactics and lack of training.
Because they need to be trained not to use excessive force. (That isn't common sense - or commmon decency - or anything.)

Of course only 4 officers were sent before the review board. More than 4 officers were involved.
