    Cleveland Cop Michael Brelo Charged With Assault Days After Being Acquitted In Killing

    A Cleveland police officer is charged with misdemeanor assault for an incident that took place just days after he was acquitted in the killing of two unarmed black people.

    Michael Brelo is accused of assaulting his brother Mark on May 27, four days after he was found not guilty in the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, according to the alt-weekly Cleveland Scene.

    The criminal complaint against Brelo, obtained by the paper, said he struck his brother "in the head, face, and body." His brother has also been charged with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct.

    The incident took place in Bay Village, Ohio, but the specific location of the alleged assault was not reported. A call to the Bay Village Police Department was not immediately returned.

    4 family members accused of beating pregnant teen to kill baby

    Authorities in Dallas arrested four family members Tuesday accused in the brutal beating of a 14-year-old girl who was reportedly impregnated by another family member.

    Police said the attack occurred in 2013, but the alleged victim, who police say was raped by a family member a year earlier, was embarrassed to come forward,The Dallas Morning News reported. She was eventually convinced to go to law enforcement on May 22 by a woman who said she witnessed part of the attack.

    The paper, citing police, reported that the girl, who was eight months pregnant at the time of the alleged attack in 2013, delivered the baby stillborn and the family tried to cover up the birth by burning the body on a grill at the Pleasant Grove home.


    Seriously? This is horrifying.
