That's odd. Few years ago cops arrested a very live man and put him in a police van. And delivered his corpse to jail.
No cops were even reprimanded over that.

2015 Baltimore, Freddie Gray was charged with illegally carrying a knife, which an officer said was discovered inside one of Gray’s pockets and six police officers were suspended over Freddie Gray's death whose neck was broken after he was arrested and locked in a police van, as it emerged officers also allegedly delayed providing him with medical attention despite his requests.

NY Times quote, BALTIMORE — Baltimore’s chief prosecutor charged six police officers on Friday with a range of crimes including murder and manslaughter in the arrest and fatal injury of Freddie Gray, a striking and surprisingly swift turn in a case that has drawn national attention to police conduct.

The state’s attorney for Baltimore City, Marilyn J. Mosby, filed the charges almost as soon as she received a medical examiner’s report that ruled Mr. Gray’s death a homicide, and a day after the police concluded their initial investigation and handed over their findings. Officials had cautioned that it could take considerable time for her office to complete its own investigation and decide whether to prosecute. unquote

They all walked. Being charged was nothing , I doubt they missed a paycheck.

Just pointing out the rarity of OI not covering the cops rear regardless.
