Many officers mentioned in the report, allowed themselves to lie under oath, brutally beating people and even steal. Among other offences unjustified shooting of citizens, fake summonses, driving under the influence of alcohol.
So, one of the officers almost shot an innocent man. Another sexually harassed by a co-worker, touched him “inappropriately”.

At the same time, journalists indicate that from 2011 to 2015, 777 police officers have been prosecuted for offences and 463 employee resigned during disciplinary cases.
