Officials are investigating the death of a New Jersey man who died while in police custody Tuesday.
"As many of you have already heard, earlier today a tragedy occurred involving Officers and a citizen," said Vineland Police Chief Timothy Codispoti. "Sadly, this call for service resulted in an “in–custody, non-shooting death” which is being investigated by the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s office"

The man, identified as Phillip White, was arrested at a home on the 100 block of Grape Street in Vineland, New Jersey around 11 a.m. Tuesday. He died shortly after while in custody.
Witnesses told NBC10 officers were extremely physical with White after he was already restrained and unconscious on the street.

"They punched him, stomped him, kicked him and then they let the dog out of the car," said Ricardo Garcia. "The dog bit him on his face and around his body. There's no call for that. Once a man is handcuffed and unconscious, you should have stuck him in the patrol car and take him to the police station. Instead they decided to beat him right here."

And now Vineland police are doing what all police departments do best. They commit a crime, then when people post negative reviews and things on their Facebook page, they delete comments, block people and have FB delete reviews. Don't want the public to think badly of them. They are your friends. . . . . not.

Let's hope this case is carefully and honestly reviewed, and that if any officers acted wrongfully they are brought up on appropriate charges.
