Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni is getting heat for not filing charges in an assault case that was then taken up by the state attorney general.
Fourteen Springfield officers, including one who retired and one who took a new job, were among those indicted by a grand jury in Worcester this week after several men alleged they were beaten by officers near a Springfield restaurant in 2015.
Springfield City Council President Justin Hurst has released a statement calling Gulluni's decision not to charge the officers a dereliction of duties.
The D.A. said in 2017 that while the men who claimed they were attacked were clearly victims of assault, they could not adequately identify their attackers.
Among the new issues for the city council is how the original investigation missed that there was video of the original incident from a nearby bank.
