Well that was much harder to watch than I thought it was going to be.
4:22+ is absolutely fucking obscene.
Also, needs a Lawrence O'Donnell tag.
They are not above the law. They ARE the law.
I'll admit that I've never been in this situation, so I don't know how I'd react, but I like to think I'd have the decency to throw down the club once the other guy is a motionless blob next to an upside down car.
Also, the other 7 or so cops have no excuse.
Of course, by posting this on Poetv, Gommorrah had condemned all of us to late night shadow government police raids. The only way to possibly avoid this abuse of power is to not post a comment.
This is all disgusting. Worst part is that there are Conservatives that probably support the police in doing shit like this, yet are afraid that public healthcare gives the government too much power.
That entire line of thinking...small government, preventing tyranny, all that business...is purely Republican messaging and completely hypocritical and disingenuous. Modern conservatives preach against impingement of their civil liberties yet have zero problem expanding the power of government if it serves their special interests.
The heart of reactionaries has always been about tearing down anything that hinders setting up their own system of privilege and oppressing others.
I watched two and a half minutes and had to stop. That was plenty.
You really missed the worst of it. Seriously, at least go to 4:22
Not clicking play, there is no point in me deepening my already fathomless hatred of the police and cutting my life shorter with even more stress over how much this country fucking sucks. Five for pure evil.
Fuck police bruality.
But seriously. All of these people should be in jail.
But.. but... mommy always said the police were there to HELP me!
The Police are just a government-funded gang. Even street gangs keep "order" in their territory, whatever the fuck that means moment to moment.
Someone here once said that there are very scary people in prison, and we've hired a bunch of people who are only the tiniest bit less scary to keep them in there.

Too bad that the Congress will never act to reel in the power of the police and that police officers themselves don't -immediately- get fired after these events.
We need referees to watch the clips in those little sound booths on the side of the field and make a decision to fire them then and there.
What's next? Police police? This is goddamn depressing.
And that's the end of that chapter.
