A ruling that Denver can be put on trial for police brutality and feds' decision not to charge three cops who brutally beat Alex Landau in 2009 cast Denver Police in a negative light. But the DPD continues to fight for its reputation, with one battleground being social media. An example: a new Pinterest page featuring photos of officers with kids, dogs and hot new cars -- plus a SWAT team pic unwisely labeled "Heading into the heart of darkness." See them below, along with DPD categories and captions.
