Oklahoma: Kicking Cop Pardoned

KOKH Fox 25 reports Police Sergeant John Blumenthal admitted, in 2008, that he "kicked a homeless man in the face" who was "already handcuffed." Three years later, Blumenthal sought a pardon and received a positive recommendation from the State's Pardon and Parole Board and a grant from the Governor!

It is also reported that "no one from the board or the governor’s office notified the Oklahoma County District Attorney or Police Chief Bill City when considering the pardon." Now a District Attorney says the information upon which the grant was based was "not entirely true." Blumenthal, for example, told the Pardon and Parole Board his foot "made contact with the cheek of the subject accidentally.” See full story here.
