Two Indiana police officers seen on video repeatedly punching a handcuffed and defenseless man in their custody have been charged with a federal civil rights violation.

Cory Newland, 35, and Joshua Titus, 30, of the Elkhart Police Department were indicted by a grand jury Thursday on a charge of depriving Mario Ledesma of his rights through excessive force.

Police surveillance video shows them punching Ledesma after he spat at Newland while sitting handcuffed in a chair at the police station in January 2018.

if people realised how virulent saliva and phlegm is, they'd batter him too. You catch Hep C from it and a whole multitude of diseases.

I agree. Spitting at someone is a form of Assault.

The question is, did the cops use excessive force and was the force aimed at preventing a recurrence?
