GSU Accused of Excessive Force…AGAIN

Members of the Gang Suppression Unit struck again on Thursday in the Jane Usher Boulevard Area. Around six p.m., officers attached to the GSU stormed the house of Leroy Slusher on Levi Slusher Street, just off Jane Usher Boulevard. The team was looking for drugs and conducted a search on the property, roughing up the elderly man and his sixteen year old granddaughter, who was at home along with several other minors and his sixty-nine year old wife, Joyce. The search turned up a very small quantity of suspected weed and Leroy was detained and taken to the police station. Joyce spoke to News Five earlier today about what transpired saying that, while she has no problem with the officers doing their job, the manner in which they conducted the search was unwarranted.
