FBI Investigating Seattle Police Face-Stomp

The stomp delivered by a gang unit officer to the face of a robbery suspect has already given Seattle police a black eye. Now it's responsible for a pain in their neck.

According to King 5, a source within the Department of Justice has confirmed that Officer Shandy Cobane's boot to the face is now the subject of an F.B.I. civil rights investigation.

The incident was caught on tape by a freelance photographer on the night of April 17 in Lake Union. Seattle PD had just nabbed two Hispanic men they thought responsible for a robbery.

On the video, Officer Cobane can be heard telling one of the suspects, "I'm going to beat the fucking Mexican piss out of you homey. You feel me?" Then, when the suspect goes to scratch his nose, Cobane stomps on his face.

Police eventually realized the suspect wasn't involved in the crime and released him. He's apparently a 21-year-old graduate of Franklin High with no criminal background. Smart money says there's a lawsuit coming in the very near future.
