SARASOTA, Fla. — Two months after a surveillance video recorded him kicking a handcuffed suspect, Sarasota police officer Christopher Childers got a pay raise and top marks for keeping his cool.
"Very calm under stressful situations," noted his supervisor, Sgt. Robert Resch, in explaining why he gave Childers an "exceeds standard" rating on his ability to maintain composure.
