CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Although a police supervisor was given only a written reprimand for allegedly choking a handcuffed suspect, Chattanooga police Chief Freeman Cooper said he does not consider any discipline to be light.
"I don't look at the discipline as being a slap on the wrist," the chief said. "A police officer's goal is to go through his or her career without any type of discipline."
