Yesterday’s Progress led with the confirmation of 21-year-old Corey Faison’s allegations that he was savagely beaten by several Albemarle County police officers last month. Progress staffers viewed a lengthy videotape of police attempting to interrogate an unresponsive Faison. Police grew increasingly frustrated, but finally snapped when Faison hit a camera out of their hands. Faison was thrown to the ground and punched dozens of times by several officers, despite his protests. One officer then commented that Faison should be a little more willing to talk at that point. County police maintain that their actions were warranted, and even believe that they could have beat him with nightsticks, should they have seen fit.
