Wichita settles with man who claimed police officer beat him

Associated Press - July 29, 2015 11:05 pm

The city of Wichita has settled a lawsuit accusing an 18-year veteran of the police department of beating a man over what began as an alleged parking violation.

The Wichita Eagle reports the City Council last week approved paying Marcus McIntosh $325,000 to settle the suit against officer Brian Safris, former Police Chief Norman Williams and the city.

The suit alleged that Safris saw McIntosh park in a handicapped parking space in August 2013 and go inside a bar. It claims Safris told McIntosh to go outside with him, and after the two cursed at each other, the officer used a stun gun on McIntosh before repeatedly stomping and kicking him.

Safris is contesting his recent firing over the incident.

Society does not need cops like this period. He should have known better after 18 years on the force. He should have been charged with aggravated assault and battery. He should no longer be a cop, period and should be flushed down the toilet with the rest of the turds.

Actually, Doug Clemens, it looks like the actual “thug” was fired.
