I had a Bennington pd officer hand cuff me and put me in the car... for drunk and disorderly. We were still having words... The officer didnt like what I said so he reached in and grabbed me by my genitals an squeezed till I passed out! Keep in mind I had no way to defend myself cause I was hand cuffed and sitting on my hands.. All I remember saying in a very high pitch voice is "plz, let go", till I passed out from the pain... These are the men we are talking about here...

Guaranteed excessive force! Why are they taking so long to investigate? There are cameras in the lobby!!! Probably a case of conveniently lost the footage! The Local papers are reporting the scanner mentioning a stabbing as well... That will be the reason the officer shot this person! They will try to say the man attempted to stab him.. I have been the victim of excessive force by a police officer of the Bennington Police department! I bet this is the same... Things just get worse when they go unchecked.. They are out of control!
