D.O.A.

These are great days we're living, bros
There will be a backlash against Queensland police officers after video footage was released showing an officer assaulting two detainees, Queensland's police union boss says. The Queensland Police Service on Tuesday released on YouTube CCTV footage of former senior constable Benjamin Thomas Price, 34, brutally assaulting two people in custody while working at Airlie Beach in north Queensland.
Price was sentenced to 27 months' jail on Monday.

Ben Price is first shown throwing a 21-year-old woman to the floor, then pulling her up by her hair.
The ex-Queensland police officer is then shown committing an horrific five-minute assault on a 23-year-old man. Price can be seen punching and kneeing a bleeding, handcuffed Timothy Steele, 23, in May 25, 2008. He puts Mr Steele in a brutal spine lock and leaves the commercial diver with a broken nose and two blackened eyes, cuts and bruising to the face. Other police officers look on - but none intervene - as Price stuffs a running fire hose into his victim's mouth, nearly drowning him.
