A Los Angeles police officer who was on patrol with a fellow officer accused of beating two people on a Pacoima street corner last year said Monday he had once lied about the incident out of loyalty to his police "family."

A Los Angeles police officer testified Thursday that he initially lied to superiors to shield partner Lance L. Braun from brutality allegations but later felt compelled to break an unwritten code of silence and tell the truth. Officer Scott Kennedy's admissions came during a preliminary hearing for Braun, a 20-year veteran of the force who retired days before the district attorney's office accused him of excessive force in the beating of two transients on a Pacoima street corner last August.

A 20-year veteran Los Angeles police officer who retired this week was charged Wednesday with two counts of excessive force for allegedly using his baton last August to beat a pair of transients in what Dist. Atty. Ira Reiner called "simply a case of policeman as bully." Lance L. Braun, who was assigned to the Police Department's troubled Foothill Division, earlier received a 22-day job suspension after the incident was investigated by his supervisor, Sgt. Stacey C. Koon.
