SEATTLE-A Seattle police officer has been caught on audio tape threatening to falsely charge two suspects with a robbery saying, “I’m gonna make stuff up.”

The two suspects, Josh Lawson and Christopher Franklin, filed a lawsuit against the city of Seattle for wrongful arrest and excessive force, claiming that an officer kicked Lawson in the face. For some mysterious reason, dashcam footage of the the assault disappeared.

KOMONEWS reports:

Both men said they suffered facial bruises and swelling after one was kicked and the other man-handled into the pavement while being arrested. But then listen to what an officer says on an audio recording after he takes the two to holding cells: “Well, you’re going to jail for robbery that’s all.”

You then hear Franklin ask, “for robbery?” And the officer responds, “Yeah, I’m gonna make stuff up.”

“These guys are guilty of being black in Seattle,” said attorney Lizanne Padula, who represents Lawson and Franklin. She believes if they’d been white “I think the most that would have happened with those kids police officer would have rolled down his window and said, ‘hey, were you guys over in this area?'”
