GJPD Officer Resigns in Face of Pepper-Spray Attack

Posted in City of Grand Junction, Exessive Force, GJPD, Harrassment, Homelessness, police violence by GJPD Exposed on July 8, 2010

One GJPD officer resigns and another is placed on administrative leave for allegedly pepper-spraying homeless people property, including tents and sleeping bags, in a number of earlier incidents. This investigation stemmed from a case in which three GJPD officers were fired for vandalizing a homeless encampment. The three officers while appealing their case plead that such attack on homeless people’s camps are common practice within the department and in line with the training they received. Check out the Sentinel’s story, here.
