Every Newspaper In Town Libels Innocent Hero Baton-Beating Cop

It's a trifecta! The Post, the Daily News and the Times have all besmirched the now-cleared name of New York police officer David London, who was pronounced not guilty by a jury yesterday, despite a video that shows him using his baton to beat a person's head in, a person who was prone on the floor at the time. In his trial, the officers was accused of assault, and three charges related to filing false police reports about the incident. Today, the newspapers all just can't seem to believe it he is not guilty.
