Back in 2009 we reported on Officer Joseph Rios beating a homeless man for no apparent reason in Passaic.

Superior Court Judge Donald J. Volkert Jr. has acquitted Officer Rios of a police brutality charge. Now that he has been acquitted one may assume that he will receive back pay for the time he has been on leave.

Meanwhile the victim, Ronnie Hollaway has received a $350,000 settlement from the city for the attack.
