Former Puerto Rico Police Officer Nieves Perez Ortiz was convicted of murder and sentenced to 104 years in prison for shooting a Dominican immigrant during a drunken argument while off duty. Immigration activists have since been using this case as an example of police brutality and profiling directed at Dominican immigrants. Despite this one conviction, prosecutions of police in Puerto Rico remain rare, certainly far rarer than incidents of abuse by police officers in Puerto Rico.
