          二月里, 一个 Aurora police officer was fired for using excessive force during an arrest months earlier.
          Officer Robert Rosen was assisting a fellow officer attempting to arrest a man allegedly trespassing in an Aurora supermarket.
          Rosen punched the man multiple times and used his Taser on him five times for a total of 27 秒, according to the APD statement and body camera video of the incident obtained by CNN.
          In the responding officer’s body camera video, the man can be seen running away from him before he was brought to the ground. The officer then asked the man repeatedly to give him his hands, but the man refused for nearly two minutes before Rosen arrived in the supermarket aisle.
          The first officer asked Rosen to help secure the man’s arms, then Rosen was seen punching the man in the ribs with a closed fist before deploying his Taser on him.
          The man received minor injuries during the arrest and was transported to a local hospital for evaluation and treatment, according to APD.
            An internal investigation found that Rosen failed to activate his body camera when he arrived at the supermarket and alsofailed to document his justifications for each use of force during the arrest,” 根据部门.
            A review by the District Attorney’s Office for the 18th Judicial District resulted in no criminal charges against Rosen.
