Cops defend Officer Lugo

The Providence Police FOP have come to the defense of Officer Lugo by taking aim at Mayor Elorza and Commish Pare. The police union argue that Lugo deserves his day in court and punch back at the political move to fire him without evidence. The city announced plans to fire him over the WPRO edited slow motion 5 second video that went viral. The Police union argue Lugo should not be fired over the edited 5-second video put out by WPRO while the station has other video that show Lugo being attacked prior to striking Jennifer Rourke.
