    After being fired from the Inkster Police Department, Bill "Robocop" Melendez has officially been charged three charges including felony assault, mistreatment of a prisoner and misconduct in the brutal beating of Floyd Dent, an upstanding grandfather and Ford Motor employee, outside of Detroit, Michigan.

    A drug possession charge against the man, Floyd Dent, 57, will be dropped, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said. Dent's treatment by Inkster police during a Jan. 28 traffic stop sparked outrage after the video was released by NBC affiliate WDIV. "We cannot turn our heads when the law enforcer becomes the law breaker," Worthy said during a news conference Monday. "The alleged police brutality in this case cannot and will not be tolerated."

    Melendez is one of the most corrupt police officers in America. It's important to note that 12 years ago he was charged by the federal government as the ringleader of a band of corrupt officers in the Detroit Police Department, but he was able to beat the charges. He has been accused in wrongful deaths, planted evidence, and false reports over a dozen other times.

    This time, though, the video footage of Melendez beating Floyd Dent and apparently planting evidence has him cornered.
