Excessive Force Leads to Firing, Suspension of Police Officers

Pretty lenient for battery


GREENSBORO, N.C. — An officer with the Greensboro Police Department has been fired and another has been suspended as the result of the city's investigation into the department's response to a student apartment complex. …

Miller says the second response concerned a graduation party which more than 100 people attended.  Four women were arrested "for various minor charges associated with their behavior on the scene," he said.

No firearms were drawn, but an officer did pull out his stun gun during the incident, Miller said.  The students claimed the officer used excessive force.
