MTA Officer Abuses Homeless Man

by TChris

The prevalence of surveillance cameras in our cities may bring Orwell to mind, but some champion their public presence as a valuable tool to help the police identify criminals. MTA police officer Michael Koenig might be unenthused about the law enforcement potential of surveillance cameras, having been captured on camera during an encounter with a homeless man at Penn Station. Witnesses confirm that Koenig hit the man in the head with his metal baton after ejecting him from the station.

Koenig has been charged with assault. Koenig and another officer are also charged with falsifying records by failing to report the misconduct.
