Ferguson Police Department has been bombarded with inconvenient truths since news of Officer Darren Wilson's shooting of unarmed 19-year-old Michael Brown.
Since then, another officer has been suspended for pointing an AR-15 at peaceful protestors and saying "I will f**king kill you."
A St. Louis County officer, Dan Page, was suspended after video of a racist rant came to light.
Wilson himself used to work at a Police Department that was disbanded for creating racial tensions.
And yet another Ferguson officer was today revealed to have been involved in police brutality: Officer Justin Cosma hog-tied and injured a 12-year-old boy, according to a civil rights lawsuit.
Cosma was one of the officers who spuriously arrested two reporters - and assaulted one of them - on one of the first nights of protest in Ferguson.
