FBI investigating Bluffton officer’s takedown of an unarmed man during 2017 arrest
By Lana Ferguson and Lucas Smolcic Larson

A June 2020 report published by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse found that officers are rarely charged under the color of law statute. During Fiscal Year 2019, there were more prosecutions for illegally taking fish, wildlife and migratory birds than criminal civil rights violations, according to the report.
