Lucy Steigerwald has an update on the beating of Jordan Miles, a case I wrote about in January. Miles was beaten nearly to death by three Pittsburgh police officers
who say they mistook a bottle of Mountain Dew in Miles’ pocket for a
gun. (The Mountain Dew bottle disappeared after the beating.) The cops
claimed they confronted Miles because a neighbor had complained that the
music student with no criminal record was skulking about her property.
That neighbor denies ever making such a complaint. The cops also say
Miles should have known they were cops, and say he’s responsible for his
own beating for fleeing them.
