Officer gets indicted after fatally throwing 65 year old to the ground.

Another sociopath with a badge, they get off on inflicting pain.

A Dickinson Police Department sergeant, Michael Kinsley, faced indictment on Thursday from Galveston County grand jurors, marking the latest development in a contentious police brutality case.
