Kim Chancellor Suit at Least Fort Collins Cops' Fifth Excessive-Force Complaint
The lawsuit that Kim Chancellor recently filed after being roughed up by a cop is at least the fifth excessive-force complaint put forward against Fort Collins Police Services by Killmer, Lane & Newman, LLP, a Denver law firm. It's also one of the four incidents captured on video. And while a number of law enforcers face accusations of wrongdoing (with one, former Officer Todd Hopkins, who resigned last year, cited in two cases), attorney David Lane feels that higher-ups on the force deserve even more blame than those who allegedly did the damage.
"To allow this kind of brutality in their police department," Lane says, "it starts at the top."
