Alleged LAPD Beating Victim

The Gruesome Photo

8/27/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Brian Mulligan beat up
There's no doubt ...  Brian Mulligan -- an international banking honcho -- was beaten to a pulp by the LAPD -- based on photos obtained by TMZ.
 
Mulligan -- the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank -- is unrecognizable in the pics -- with severe nasal fractures and lacerations, a concussion, a fractured right scapula, and numerous contusions and abrasions. 

Although the LAPD claims officers beat and arrested Mulligan after he became violent and threatening ... prosecutors declined to file charges.  Our sources say prosecutors believe the photos are "clear evidence of excessive force."  Indeed, Mulligan already filed a $50 million claim against the City of L.A.

TMZ first reported, Mulligan claims two LAPD cops beat him senseless after wrongfully detaining him ... claiming he resembled a person suspected of attempted car theft.  Mulligan claims the officers took him to a hotel against his will and when he tried to leave officers brutally attacked him.

Mulligan's lawyers, J. Michael Flanagan and Valerie Wass, tell TMZ cops at the scene conceded Mulligan was NOT under the influence of drugs and they described him as “calm, lucid, and cooperative." They tell TMZ, "Mulligan had committed no violations of law and was not arrested. No drugs were found during a search of his person or his vehicle, and the officers found absolutely no evidence of drug use by Mulligan."

Flanagan and Wass say cops also engaged in a cover-up, telling us, "The two officers who inflicted the injuries on Mulligan subsequently concocted a police report in an attempt to justify their use of excessive and deadly force and to obtain a filing of criminal charges against Mulligan."

I'll wait for the rest of the story before I make any decision. As in the Rodney King case, he wouldn't stay down, he kept getting up and was combative. When a cop tell you something, just do it. If you're not guilty of anything, that will come out but until then, just do what they say to do.

Hard to root for either of them. I think all bankers need to get their butts kicked, but the LAPD is nothing more than a street gang that gets away with this type of stuff all the time. I think all bankers should have a cage match with the LAPD.

$50 million? He should go for $150 million and the police officers who did this should be thrown in jail for 20 years. I'm surprised this story hasn't received as much attention as another LA beating case - Rodney King. Both of them were brutal, though this guy did absolutely nothing wrong.

So the City of Angels will have to cough up $50 million because two rotten cops were on a power trip and lost control. Way to go. Have fun looking for work.

Get used to it folks. Police are no longer peace officers who job is to serve and protect. Today they are law enforcement officers whose only concern is that you comply with the laws that they are above.

Just goes to show the LAPD are not racist, they will beat your azz no matter what your color. They are hired thugs who enjoy the power they hold over the citizens who pay their salaries.
