Alleged Orlando Cop Killer: “They done took my eye. They broke my nose, broke my jaw. They did all this shit saying I resisted”
From [HERE] New video shows the takedown of an accused Orlando cop killer, footage that appears to show two officers kicking murder suspect Markeith Loyd while he’s down on the ground.
Loyd claims police used excessive force. There’s now an internal investigation into the officers' actions.
"Let's not rush to judgment. Let's let the use of force investigation play out. Remember, we're dealing with an extremely violent and dangerous and unpredictable person,” said Orlando Police Chief John Mina.
Police celebrated the success of bringing down Loyd, ending a massive nine-day manhunt for the accused murderer.
At Loyd’s first court appearance Thursday, he claimed police brutality. “They done took my eye. They broke my nose, broke my jaw. They did all this (expletive) saying I resisted,” Loyd said.
From police helicopter video, released by the Orlando Police Department, you see dozens of officers from different agencies surround an abandoned Orlando home as they closed in on Loyd.
Fellow officers knew who they were up against. Loyd's accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and unborn baby in December, then gunning down police lieutenant Debra Clayton last week.
“We are talking about a cold-blooded, ruthless killer,” says Chief Mina. [sounds like a good excuse for the anger they already had].
