The Jack-Booted Thug of the Week...

... is Woonsocket, Rhode Island Police Officer John H. Douglas, who has been arrested by the FBI and charged with both a civil rights violation for allegedly participating along with unnamed other officers in brutally assaulting a sixteen-year-old boy multiple times, both in a local park as well as back at the police station (leaving the teen with a fractured eye socket and nose), as well as obstruction of justice for attempting "to persuade other Woonsocket officers to provide false information to FBI agents investigating the allegations."

Here's the complete indictment which details the nauseating charges against "Officer" Douglas.

The story doesn't report whether or not the other cops actually went ahead with the cover-up attempt. We hope for their sake they didn't, as this particular jig is most definitely up.
