The news is out: [(Reuters) – A police officer has been charged with an unprovoked attack against three credentialed journalists, shooting them with rubber pellets in May as a protest they were covering in downtown Detroit was winding down, prosecutors said.
Detroit Police Corporal Daniel Debono, 32, faces three counts of felonious assault, the Wayne County prosecuting attorney’s office said on Monday.
“The evidence shows that these three journalists were leaving the protest area and that there was almost no one else on the street where they were,” Prosecuting Attorney Kim Worthy said in a statement. “There are simply no explicable reasons why the alleged actions of this officer were taken.”]
He will get off with probation. If that.
