After arresting a drug-dealing cop, the FBI searched his cell phone and found a video of him savagely attacking a hospital patient for his own enjoyment.
'Paterson, NJ — When FBI agents launched an investigation into crooked drug-dealing Patterson Police Officer Ruben McAusland, they made a startling discovery when they seized his cellphone for evidence. McAusland and his partner, officer Roger Then, filmed themselves attacking a man in the hospital for sheer enjoyment.
“Prior to that video being discovered, we did not know about that assault,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Rahul Agarwal said in federal court in Newark on Wednesday morning.
The patient, later identified as Andrew Casciano, has since filed a $4 million suit against the city.
The disturbing video was taken on March 5, 2018 at a hospital in Paterson. The man in the hospital bed, Casciano, had just attempted suicide and was being treated. He needed help, but sadly, he got a broken face instead.
As Casciano is lying in the hospital bed, he tells the officers to “do it” before McAusland proceeds to wallop him so hard that blood sprayed from his face, twice. The blows were so vicious that Casciano was severely injured and required surgery to repair his orbital bone.
What’s more, the abuse recorded by the cops in the hospital room was only one part of Casciano’s abuse. According to hospital surveillance footage, McAusland punched Casciano in his face as he sat in a wheelchair in the crowded hospital waiting room.
After finding the video, the FBI launched a secondary investigation into this sadistic pair of cops which led to both of their arrests. On Wednesday, McAusland was sentenced to 66 months in prison for his actions. As U.S. District Judge William Walls handed down the sentence, he called the disgraced public servant nothing more than a “street hustler.”
Also part of the disgraced cop’s sentence is paying Casciano $32,892 in restitution of McAusland’s own money.'
