[FL] With "friends" like Officer Connors who needs sadistic, cannibalistic lovers?
Cocoa Beach FL Police Officer Darren Connors put his "friend" in the hospital with disfiguring injuries after an attack at the victim's mother's house in the wee hours, after a night of drinking. Officer Connors beat his "friend" with a music stand, then threatened his friend and his own roommate - who was a witness to the 1st phase of the attack - to not press charges. Officer Connors used the base of the music stand to beat his victim several times on the head & upper body, and bit the man several times on his face and arms. "He took some good chunks out of him," Sheriff's Agent Brad Lewis said. Connor's friend woke up around 9 a.m. in his mother's bed covered in blood, then woke up Connors - who was still there with him - also covered in blood but uninjured. Officer Connors immediately called to hire a carpet cleaning company to come remove the man's bloodstains from the mother's bed, carpet and chairs, went home to shower and change out of the bloody clothes, and THEN took the badly injured "friend" to the hospital. The bloodied friend had two black eyes, gashes on his face and upper body, had bite marks all over his body, and his head was split open. The victim didn’t want to prosecute as long as Officer Connors was present, and even signed a nonprosecution form, but once Investigator Lewis separated the victim and witness from Officer Connors, they cooperated.
