Video: Recruit's death called into question
"Whatever the police knew, they apparently did not tell the city manager"
By Harry Minium and Patrick Wilson
NORFOLK, Va. — Councilman Andy Protogyrou has accused city officials of intentionally misleading the City Council and the public about the recent death of a police recruit, saying information that indicated the recruit was punched in the head by an instructor just before blacking out was withheld.
On Thursday night, Protogyrou sent an e-mail to acting City Manager Stanley A. Stein saying, "I believe there has been an attempt to play the council," by the police chief or city manager's office.
