dr_zfq asked recently, "*Is* there any way to force the department to fire those individuals? Is there any way at all to force the necessary punishments to happen?"
That's a good question, which means I have no idea of the answer-- it's the sort of detail I'm not apt to accumulate. One would think there'd be laws with punishments nicely attached against imprisoning someone in conditions which probably violate the Geneva Conventions in order to extort false accusations from them, but you never know.
Nor do I know what procedures would be needed to bring criminal charges against police for something criminal that's vaguely police-procedure-shaped that they've done on the job.
