"Four Puerto Rico police officers have been charged with civil rights violations and obstruction of justice in the latest hit against a department undergoing a federally mandated overhaul. The U.S. Justice Department said Wednesday that three male officers and one former female officer are accused of using excessive force during a November 2014 police operation. Officials say the officers choked, slapped and hit a suspect in the head with a gun and then shot him as he was fleeing." (09/07/16)
