We've got plenty of evidence of that. It was VCIS officers who picked up a pair of city teens in 2011 and dropped one on the other side of town and the other in a Howard County park with no shoes or cellphone. It was VCIS officers who tackled Anthony Anderson, an unarmed 46-year-old man, in a parking lot in 2012, leading to his death from blunt-force trauma. The city paid a $200,000 settlement in 2009 after a VCIS officer beat up a man who had done nothing more suspicious than order a chicken box at an East Baltimore carryout, and in 2011, Baltimore paid a $100,000 settlement after VCIS members battered a 65-year-old church deacon who was rolling a tobacco cigarette outside his own home. In 2013, a VCIS officer pleaded guilty in a conspiracy to protect a drug dealer from police, supply him with drugs and falsify reports.
