A Denver cop who sadistically allowed his police dog to attack a man on his knees with his hands behind his head was issued a 10-day suspension he may never serve.
Denver police officer David Miller was set to begin serving his suspension today but filed an appeal which sets off a process that could lead to several more appeals, according to ABC 7.
The incident took place on November 1, 2018 as police were tracking a stolen U-haul truck in a helicopter. Miller’s bodycam was turned off but another cop had his turned on. That video is posted above.
At one point, the driver parked the truck and stepped out which was when two cops pulled up and began screaming at him to get on the ground, which he immediately did.
Miller then arrives and allows his K9 to attack the man for about 20 painful seconds.
“Get your hands up!” the cops yell as the dog mauls the man’s arms who yells in pain, pleading for them to pull the dog away.
“Stop resisting!” the cops continue to yell. “Let me see your hands!”
Miller received an oral reprimand for not turning on his body camera.
