Skip to comments.Alleged LAPD Beating Victim The Gruesome Photo (banking Executive-Former Head of Fox TV)
Posted on 08/27/2012 5:28:19 AM PDT by RummyChick
There's no doubt ... Brian Mulligan -- an international banking honcho -- was beaten to a pulp by the LAPD -- based on photos obtained by TMZ.
Mulligan -- the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media for Deutsche Bank -- is unrecognizable in the pics -- with severe nasal fractures and lacerations, a concussion, a fractured right scapula, and numerous contusions and abrasions.
Although the LAPD claims officers beat and arrested Mulligan after he became violent and threatening ... prosecutors declined to file charges. Our sources say prosecutors believe the photos are "clear evidence of excessive force." Indeed, Mulligan already filed a $50 million claim against the City of L.A.
TMZ first reported, Mulligan claims two LAPD cops beat him senseless after wrongfully detaining him ... claiming he resembled a person suspected of attempted car theft. Mulligan claims the officers took him to a hotel against his will and when he tried to leave officers brutally attacked him.
Mulligan's lawyers, J. Michael Flanagan and Valerie Wass, tell TMZ cops at the scene conceded Mulligan was NOT under the influence of drugs and they described him as calm, lucid, and cooperative." They tell TMZ, "Mulligan had committed no violations of law and was not arrested. No drugs were found during a search of his person or his vehicle, and the officers found absolutely no evidence of drug use by Mulligan."
Flanagan and Wass say cops also engaged in a cover up, telling us, "The two officers who inflicted the injuries on Mulligan subsequently concocted a police report in an attempt to justify their use of excessive and deadly force and to obtain a filing of criminal charges against Mulligan."
LAPD claims they took Brian Mulligan to a motel because he was sleepy. He waited several hours ..felt like his life was in danger..and tried to get out of the room.
Oh, and he had a lot of money in the trunk of his car.
Sounds like they tried to shake him down.
KGB. sounds like set up or shake down.
I hope he wins that lawsuit.
This BS being done under color of law, with a badge, really needs to end.
“they took Brian Mulligan to a motel”
False imprisonment and attempt to cover up police brutality.
He must’a had the wrong bumper sticker on his car.....
The Mafia called that a ride...
one more piece of information that might or might not be relevant is that this happened near a medical marijuana dispensary.
The whole story is weird.
Anyone think this will get as much media coverage as Rodney King?
I hope it gets to court.
Sounds like the cops wanted to make some side-income via kidnapping. If it was you or me instead of an executive with access to serious lawyers and friends back at Fox, it might even have worked.
Take a look at the comments by the BOlsheviki haters at the Source you linked. They’re unbelievable.
Well, his tenure at Fox didn’t go over well. He wasn’t tough enough for the cut throat business. He was there for less than a year.
He had an interesting history in the media business. He was involved in the Marvin Davis attempt to take over the Vivendi deal against Barry Diller
So the story by the police goes that they had to use excessive force because Mulligan was high on Bath Salts
We're told Mulligan says the cops told him to stay in the room until they returned. He claims he waited several hours, but the cops never came back. He says he felt he was being set up to be robbed or killed, so he made a run for it. As he ran out, he says cops were right there and began beating him mercilessly.
A few hours later, cops say they got ANOTHER call from someone who said a man matching Mulligan's description was in traffic, trying to open people's car doors. When cops approached him, they say Mulligan "took a fighting stance" and charged the officers, so they took him down.
I like the cops version - he looked tired so we took him to a motel. Then we got a call that the same guy we determined wasn't robbing cars before, really was the guy. He hopped out of the motel that we had taken him to (somehow he got back in there after being noticed again robbing cars in the interim) and was about to beat us senseless with his bare hands, so we had to render his face into ground round.
The city needs to look deep within a mirror to figure out the truth here. A thug with a badge is a betrayal, like a molester posing as a priest or teacher.
This is not the first report on this by TMZ.
The police story doesn’t make sense.
They claim he fit the description of someone who was committing theft. That is why they apprehended him. They also claim they took him to a motel because he was sleepy.
Now, they are going to claim he was high on bath salts.
The clue here is that he has NOT been prosecuted.
Cops are trying to cover their butts.
disturbing people trying to get away from labd?????
what was the excuse for beating him almost to death?
