APD officers in kicking video fired

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Two Albuquerque police officers initially cleared in the beating of a suspect who had been taken to the ground were fired on Wednesday after the case was reviewed a second time on orders of Chief Ray Schultz.

The video of the February incident, which was released to the Journal late Tuesday in response to a public records request and posted on ABQjournal.com, went national. It shows the suspect being kicked more than a dozen times, a number of them in the head, and the two officers belly bumping afterward.
