(CCN) A Gold Coast police officer who leaked the CCTV video footage showing police brutally beating an innocent man is now facing seven long years behind bars.

Sergeant Rick Flori is being threatened with seven years in prison after the leaked video surveillance footage was released, which clearly showed his fellow officers beating a young father named Noa Begic.

Begic was handcuffed in the Surfers Paradise Police Station basement during the entire ordeal. There was simply no way the officers could get away with claiming self-defense on this one…at least not once the video was released. That’s why they hoped it never would be.

Officers for the Gold Coast, Australia Police Department had expected Sergeant Flori to be like the rest of them and cover up the police brutality. But instead, Flori took a stand – and now they are trying to lock him up for it.

Flori leaked the footage to the Brisbane Courier-Mail. For this “crime” he was charged with “misconduct in public office.”

The footage he revealed was taken in 2012, and it clearly shows police officers slamming Begic’s face into the concrete floor. They then shove him in the back of a van and punch him over and over while he is cuffed and being held down.

Almost as disturbing is the routine way that the video shows Begic’s blood being washed away by a senior-sergeant after the incident is over.

Flori’s leak did get two of these officers in a little bit of trouble, but he is still being penalized. One officer who washed the blood away quickly before he could be disciplined is now being scrutinized. The officer who did the bulk of the punching was given a suspended dismissal — a slap on the wrist though. The other two officers involved were not punished at all.

The victim, Begic, ended up being charged with being a “public nuisance” and “obstructing police.”

Right now, Flori is still facing serious charges and lengthy prison time. If you believe he should walk free then help us SPREAD THE WORD and demand it!

Australia Supports Sgt Rick Flori and so does America! This man is the embodiment of what a peace officer should be. He…

  4. Good for him. Now take the lead people and demand your rights be respected. This cannot happen fully until the police are policed themselves by a civilian elected panel. If guilt such police should not simply lose their jobs, which most don't, but they should be criminally held accountable. In this case the officier should have been charged with aggreviated battery. A few bad apple incarcerated for misbehavior and you'll start to she the police departments shape up real quick.
