2 more N.Y. officers disciplined in torture case

Two more officers have been disciplined in the Abner Louima case, bringing to 11 the number of officers placed on modified duty for failing to report what they had seen the night he was allegedly tortured in police custody.

Francisco Rosario, a five-year police veteran, and Rolando Aleman, who has been on the force for six years, were placed on modified duty Jan. 22, said Sgt. Cory Cuneo, a police spokesman.The New York Times Wednesday quoted unidentified investigators as saying the two initially denied seeing any evidence of an attack but later changed their story, admitting seeing Louima being led around the precinct with his pants down. They are not accused of taking part in the attack.
