That delightful headline comes courtesy of a super classy SPD gang detective, now at the center of a misconduct investigation. KIRO has the scoop:



The videotape shows it's about 2 a.m. At least six squad cars full of Seattle police are trying to sort out suspects about a half-mile from a robbery scene. Three men are being detained, but two of them appear to have nothing to do with the alleged crime.


The camera microphone picked up the following threat from the officer to the detainee:"You got me? I'm going to beat the f***ing Mexican piss out of you homey. You feel me?"


About 16 seconds after the officer threatens to "beat the f-ing Mexican piss out of you homey," the uncuffed young man moves his hand to wipe his eye. The officer immediately gives him a violent kick to the head.


The videotape also shows that about 12 seconds after the gang unit officer did his stomping, a female officer walked over to do some stomping of her own; this time onto the back of the knee or calf of the same guy lying face down on the sidewalk.

Update: Mayor Mike McGinn has issued a brief statement on the video:



"I watched the video and found it disturbing. Chief Diaz has informed me that SPD and the Office of Professional Accountability are investigating the incident. We won't have any further statement until that process is complete."
