A retired Baltimore cop is blowing the whistle on police brutality and misconduct he allegedly witnessed during his decade on the force.
Former Sgt. Michael A. Wood Jr. listed his disturbing allegations in a Twitter firestorm Wednesday but stopped short of naming names or providing dates and locations.
“So here we go,” the ex-detective and U.S. Marine, 35, wrote to his thousands of followers. “I’m going to start Tweeting the things I’ve seen & participated in, in policing that is corrupt, intentional or not.”
The claims read like a blotter.
“A detective slapping a completely innocent female in the face for bumping into him, coming out of a corner chicken store,” he said in his first example.
