Police Brutality - Handled the Way It Should Be.mp4

I think every person should watch this video and truly ask themselves if they feel sorry for the police officer laying there at the end. I know I don't.

Idiot police brutality - they had it coming!

I don't really believe in violence, but I don't have any shred of pity for these piggies since they did in fact had it coming.

The bald cop seems to be holding the one across from him off, and saying something like, "enough'.  Can others see this in the video?

Yes, Dogly - After the cop striked the man 7 times with his stick he tells him to hold off

 

If a cop thinks another cop is doing something out of line , especially in this instance - The cop should simply stand up and put his stick down as to say 'I disagree with this course of action' - But what really happens is the cops form this sort of 'pack' mentality where they feel they have to support each other even if the other members are out of line.  

 

This pack mentality is dangerous when the pack is holding guns or weapons - Especially when they know full well they won't be prosecuted to any serious degree because of their lame ass excuse 'My job is stressful' or 'I felt like I was in danger' or 'I was simply doing my job' 

 

So a Sheriff who tazers a 14 year girl in the head get's off clean because his excuse is 'I told her not to run' - The REAL reason is because he was too much of a fat ass to chase after her and bring her to the ground in a civil manner.  (True story, check for it on you tube)

Dustin, what you say is true, especially the pack mentality.  I have always feared mobs.  I got caught in the middle of Harvard Square in a riot caused by the police.  I was coming up, out of the subway station, and found myself in the middle of a riot.  This was during the Vietnam protests.  I think our omnipresent cell phone cameras will catch so many police being brutes that the ordinary non-activist will finally be moved. Becoming violent ourselves will backfire.  Remember the "pack" hasn't even used its BIG guns yet.

I don't consider 'self defense' as being 'violent' - Police should have absolutely NO right to use their weapons unless it is most definitely crystal clear that THEIR life is in danger.  If they abuse this privilege on their part, they should have their weapons taken from them for an extended period of time and sentence them to do office work or fire them altogether.  

 

This protester, I think any person would be able to say, was not putting any of those officers lives in danger.  The guy with the stick just wanted to hit something and get the power trip feeling that many men and women go into the police force precisely for ... and many others will learn this feeling and enjoy it - A police car is always at the front of traffic because nobody will dare pass it - That sort of feeling must be pretty nice and it is easily abused as well - I think police need to be severely and quickly punished for any wrongdoings or injustices against people they supposedly are supposed to protect.  Only then will they be less likely to abuse that power.

In my state it is actually illegal for the police to draw a weapon unless the see one. So instead, they get their sick thrill out of just creating fraudulent tickets.

Parece que mais e mais pessoas estão se rebelando contra a tirania da autoridade.

Bem Feito!

LOL Dylan ... I suppose that's still better than abusing their weapons..

Comment by Judith van der Roos on October 28, 2011 at 6:58pm

Yep they had it coming. It was just one guy running about making a harmless point, they could easily have let him have his 2 minutes then escorted him off. Just because you have "authority!" and paramilitary clothing, a small armory strapped around you and exist in a testosterone filled police culture does not give you any excuse to forget (1) Proportionality and (2) Who you really serve and pays your wages.
