The cop sus­tained chest bruises. Pros­e­cu­tors pre­sented a med­i­cal re­port. The man de­nied and ques­tioned the source of the re­port, “I won­der where they got the re­port from. I did not even touch the cop.”

“You are a psy­chopath! You should go for treat­ment!” he shouted. “Who ap­pointed you in the po­lice force?” he asked then pointed to a trash con­tainer. “That’s your place,” he said.
