Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper's decision to bring in the FBI to investigate the officers involved in a videotaped beating from April 2009 is a political move, according to the Denver Police Protective Association.

Officer Devin Sparks lost a day of pay and Officer Randy Murr was suspected for three days.
