Before Bill "Robocop" Melendez brutally assaulted 57-year-old Ford Motor employee Floyd Dent this past January, he was named in 12 separate lawsuits  for brutally assaulting people, planting evidence, and making illegal arrests. One case, though, sounds shockingly familiar to what Melendez did to Floyd Dent—who was choked unconscious before Melendez punched him 16 times in the face and head breaking his orbital bone, causing severe bleeding, and a brain injury.

A federal judge recently dismissed Melendez's petition for "qualified immunity" in an extreme case of brutality and wrongful arrest that took place on July 26, 2011. After reviewing the evidence, District Court Judge Gershwin Drain determined that Melendez and several of the officers under his command used illegal force against Deshawn Acklin and that they would not be protected under the qualified immunity clause.

On July 26, 2011, Bill "Robocop" Melendez brutally beat and choked Deshawn Acklin until he was completely unconscious and defecated on himself. Melendez did not stop the beating until he was pulled off of Deshawn Acklin by fellow officers. Later, fellow officers sprayed Acklin with mace when he was handcuffed in the back seat of the police car. They never even charged him with a crime, but let him go out of the back door of the local jail after they took him to the hospital for his injuries.

In addition to the extreme brutality, it appears that Melendez, as he is currently trying to do with Floyd Dent, concocted a story about what Acklin did that day to deserve such a beating.

Below the fold are some of the major discrepancies.

Read about this yesterday....

If you look at his career history you'll wonder how the hell he's managed to stay on patrol, or a cop in general, for as long as he has.

Nothing but hate in my heart.
