Montgomery County Council President Tom Hucker has drafted a bill to hold cops more accountable to prevent future abuse. The bill would require the police chief to notify the County Executive and County Council within 24 hours if it's requested. It would also require the Police Chief to inform the State's Attorney's Office within seven days of becoming aware of a potential criminal offense by a Department employee.  In Montgomery County, Maryland, a five-year-old boy was taunted by police officers for not wanting to go to school. The boy's parents have filed a lawsuit against the county, the county board of education, and the police chief. They say the officers were "out harming children" and the chief knew about it and did nothing. A video released by the boy's mother shows the officers threatening violence and telling him he will be spanked.
