The Cincinnati Police Department internal review of Officer A.Plummer's arrest of Councilman Thomas' daughter concludes that Officer Plummer used excessive force. Given his past history of using excessive force, what should be done about Officer Plummer? The two clinchers for me are: Two female officers subdued an intoxicated male suspect, apparently without use of tasers or sidearms. A male officer who responded to their backup request tased an unarmed female who was kneeling on the ground. In the back, no less. I've met a lot of very professional cops since I've lived here. This man isn't acting like a cop; he's acting like a nightclub bouncer. He needs to seek other employment, not to mention psychological counseling.
