MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WFTV) -- A former Marion County corrections officer will not face charges for slamming a suspect's head into a wall.

Last year, a surveillance camera caught Charles Broaderick slamming a handcuffed suspect into a wall and knocking him unconscious.

In exchange for having charges of battery dropped, Broaderick agreed to surrender his law enforcement certificate. He also resigned from the Marion County Sheriff's Office.

He will be rehired year later. Just like the police officer that dumped the wheel chair guy onto the floor injuring him. A few weeks later cops got the guy again on new charges. Sometimes prisoners talk back or act aggressive and people being human snap. Problem is unless it's on video nothing is done about it the cop's word is always golden by judges.
