Always presume that the police will brutalize suspects, if they can get away with it...



Yes, I know that the scumbag they kicked in the head 12 times was a scumbag. But I figure that since they didn't shoot him 12 times instead, they probably thought that the punching him in the kidneys and the kicking him in the head was merely going easy on him.

1. And that was a WHITE guy they did that to. Imagine if, oh never mind...

If we tolerate ONE more DAY of ANY existing police dept to stay in business, knowing what we know, we deserve to be beaten senseless by these assholes.

Jesus christ people we are putting people in prison for profit, and in Texas if you want to visit a loved one, you cant, you have to do it on a video machine and pay $1 a minute or more, dont recall the amount



AMERICA has lost its MIND

Disband all police departments, over time so that there is protection, rehire and retrain ALL cops so we dont have these problems, then correctly interpret the 2nd and remove all guns to well maintained and controlled militias (are you fucking crazy, all these guns, dear god people)...etc

2. I posted a link to an article discussing some of the reasons

 

why police brutality is de rigueur these days:

Basically, we train our police to expect every citizen to be a danger to them, even though statistically only a tiny fraction of encounters result in danger to the officer.

10. I assume that any interaction with an officer is a danger to me.
