Wrongful allegations.   Comments on alleged abuse by another officer (not Malone) on Facebook. KOB Excerpt from KOB: Investigators said the video is from Jan. 25. They were dispatched to a report of an intoxicated person in the entry way of a Dollar Tree store on Broadway. The officer placed handcuffs on the man and while searching him, and the man fell. The officer was unable to stop him from falling.  The video seems to prove there is no evidence of the man being beaten, nor does it match what was described on Facebook.“We were able to essentially absolve the officer of any wrongdoing in a matter of 30-45 minutes,” Malone said. Farmington police officers have been equipped with body cameras since 2011. The department says they take any accusations of wrongdoing very seriously.  “If there is an officer that isn't upholding our standards, we want to be notified, we want to look into the incidents, we want to take corrective actions, we want officers serving the citizens of our community appropriately,” said Malone. http://www.kob.com/new-mexico-news/farmington-police-department-facebook-brutality-claim-didnt- happen/4392734/ Mariscal, Michael Marshall, Mike  (OLDER - 1999/04/3) Albuquerque.
