This is despicable.
Police announced Monday they have launched an internal investigation, but would not comment about the incident or the investigation.
Police Chief Steve Hoover said no time frame has been set on the investigation, noting several people need to be interviewed regarding the incident.
“I would just ask from the citizens of Peru to be patient and allow us to do a thorough investigation into the matter,” he said Monday. “We assure you that we are taking this seriously, but it will take some time to do the investigation correctly.”
Given the alleged facts, the investigation should take about a day to do. And then the people involved should be fired with extreme prejudice. Given the “thin blue line” and the power of police unions, the people involved will probably end up with a medal for their valorous actions.
