GSU Mark Flowers Addresses Allegations of Police Brutality

Inspector Mark Flowers

Two weeks ago, mechanic Allan McCoy claimed that members of the Gang Suppression Unit, including Inspector Mark Flowers, worked him over as he headed home from a club. Just minutes before they pulled him over, there was an accident in which a vehicle ran GSU officers on a motorcycle off the road. McCoy claims that he was beat up by officers who tried to get him to admit that he did it. Well today Flowers was in fine form as he told the media that McCoy is indeed guilty, and is only trying to deflect attention by falsely claiming brutality. Flowers pulled out a copy of the report McCoy made to the Ombudsman. That report does not state that Flowers actually hit McCoy.

“I can share this copy with you, I also have a video recording from one of the business establishment coming over the bridge after or around the time of the accident,. So we know that Mr. McCoy was involved in that traffic accident, We know that Mr. McCoy is trying to deflect the traffic accident on to other people. But you would have noticed here in this statement and this is a statement that he made to the office of the Ombudsman where he made his complaint. Mr. McCoy is stating here along with all the other inconsistencies, it says I got cut and blood was dripping down my right cheek. Now you know that Mr. McCoy got no cut on his face. So first of all let me out that in context, he said two female GSU officers one took a half in wide metal rod and rammed it into my sternum. Now If somebody rammed a metal into your sternum the least you could expect is seeing some sign or some injuries consistent with being rammed by metal because metal and skin just ain’t matching up with what he is saying, He says this is about three o’clock AM. Mark Flowers head of GSU arrived on the scene. I asked him if he know me. I have worked on government vehicles, I told him that what the GSU is doing is wrong, I kept telling him to check with MJ’s. He asked me who you. All this time I was laying down in the truck. Now never once did Mr. McCoy in this statement to the office of the Ombudsman say that Mr. Flowers ever touch him or Mr. Flowers ever did anything to him but you know the sensationalism that exists and persist so I am saying to you t hat there is nothing there is no allegation from Mer. McCoy’s own written complaint. That suggest that Mr. Flowers other than ask him who he was had any contact with him. And I can make copies of this statement available to everybody.”
