Thus, we cannot comment on the process as we continue to move towards that goal. That video showed Finch rushing past the other cop and striking the man while the man was arguing on his phone. Then, after the man was handcuffed and sitting on the floor, the video showed Finch kneeing the man in his face area.
Finch is one of four Paterson cops who are on paid leave while criminal charges are pending against them. The other three all face federal charges — Sgt. Michael Cheff, accused of stealing money from a suspected drug dealer several years ago, as well as Kevin Patino and Kendry Tineo-Restituyo, accused of assaulting a man in South Paterson last December and filing a false report to cover up what happened.
