Last week we saw the conclusion of testimony of Officer Grantley Bovell a known and admitted corrupt cop who acknowledged fixing parking and speeding tickets. Both before and after arresting Cecily he was involved in a number of incidents where he was accused of using excessive force and violence against people. On the stand he denied kicking a prone suspect in the teeth, but admitted that somehow during the arrest he broke his foot. No explanation was given and that case is still pending, as is one from later the night Cecily was arrested where he accused of abusing another prisoner arrested at Zuccotti Park.
Much of what Officer Bovell said in court was that he didn’t recall, or didn’t recall if he remembered, or some variation of that. Today the prosecution will call more police to take the stand.
