I will give what I think is the only possible answer to your question in this format. You need to sit down with an attorney for a detailed evaluation in order to get a reasonable answer to the question. In any event, you may have a viable lawsuit against the particular officer as well as the department and the City. You need to consult with an attorney who practices in civil litigation with experience in civil rights/police misconduct cases in federal court. I would not post any more information on the Internet (that includes Face Book). You need to speak directly with a lawyer with the appropriate skills and experience for this difficult type of litigation. I'm going to edit the practice area of this question so that it comes to the attention of the type of counsel you need.
In order sue an officer and/or law enforcementy agency you must show that they acted with actual malice. This is a very high burden to meet. Police and Police agencies have wide discretion in the exercise of their police powers
