A St. Louis cop is caught on video, slamming his forearm across the face of a handcuffed teenage suspect.Rory Bruce not only gets fired for the incident that took place last year, but ended upcharged with assault- something you rarely see happen.


However, when Bruce stepped in front of the judge to be tried this week, the judge refused to watch the video that came from a surveillance camera from the back of a police transport vehicle.As a result, Judge Theresa Counts Burke found him not guilty.Judge Burke refused to tell KMOV-TV why she did not want to watch the strongest piece of evidence in the case against the former cop.

But the head of the police union, Jeff Roorda, who is also aMissouri state representative,*fully agreed with her decision not to view the video because he believes videos should only be used to protect police, not hold them accountable.


Roorda is now going to help Bruce get his job back.
