Patrick Pogan sentencing: Nothing

The NYPD officer who was caught on video bodyslamming Christopher Long and convicted of falsifying a criminal complaint on Long was sentenced by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley.

The prosecution asked for prison time plus probation for the felony conviction. Pogan’s defense asked for community service. Judge Maxell Wiley gaven Pogan… nothing. No sentence. No punishment.

“The defendant doesn’t need any further supervision by the court and the verdict is conditional discharge, period,” said Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley.

    Come on – he just attacked a cyclist, it's not like he committed a real offense, like impeding traffic or something.

    Tell me something about the US: why is it that people in authority are less accountable for their actions than normal people? I would think that when people in authority commit an offense, they should be more severely judged so as to send a strong signal that they are held to higher standards when serving the public.
