New videos show excessive force by Denver sheriff's deputies on inmates at jail

DENVER - Two more videos surfaced Friday showing Denver Sheriff's Department deputies using excessive force against inmates.

In one case, a sergeant ordered two other deputies to use their Tasers on an inmate who was sitting on his bunk on suicide watch.

In another case, a deputy punched an inmate, pushed him to the ground, handcuffed him and then lifted the inmate by his handcuffed wrists.

The deputies involved in each incident were disciplined by the city. Both are appealing and hearings are scheduled for next week, said Daelene Mix, spokeswoman for the city's safety department.
