On the night of Monday, Aug. 28, 2000, Lincoln Police Officer Kevin Harty severely beat Jesse Ousley, alleges the claim filed by Ousley's lawyer, Robert J. Caron, of Providence. The boy, then a 17-year-old who weighed about 115 pounds, was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries.
"Clearly the motivation behind his attack was because he is gay," Caron said in an interview yesterday, adding, "When the officer attacking him is using [the words] 'fag' and 'faggot,' it's pretty clear."
To serve and protect, indeed.
