#VIDEO: Long Island cops suspended for kicking handcuffed man

Long Island authorities said Tuesday that two Suffolk County police officers seen kicking a suspect multiple times while he was handcuffed on the ground have been suspended without pay and are the subjects of a criminal investigation. Police Commissioner Geraldine Hart called the officers’ actions that were recorded Feb. 24 on body camera “concerning” and said she was troubled that other officers at the scene did not intervene. District Attorney Timothy Sini’s office is conducting the criminal investigation. Three other officers at the scene have been placed on modified duty and could also be disciplined after a hearing, Hart said.
