So which story upset you more?

Came across 3 stories about cops doing their "job" on Rawstory.



Video shows California cops punching unarmed woman in brutal arrest — for a seatbelt violation


http://www.rawstory.com/2015/10/video-shows-california-cops-punching-unarmed-woman-in-brutal-arrest-for-a-seatbelt-violation/

A woman in Carlsbad, California is suing police after an officer punched her in the face while arresting her over an alleged seatbelt violation.

The New York Daily News reported on a police brutality suit brought by 40-year-old Cindy Hahn, who was arrested and beaten in 2013 as her two children, ages 7 and 11, watched.

According to Hahn’s complaint, on July 31, 2013, she and her children were leaving a birthday party when they came upon a vehicle which was unoccupied with its alarm blaring.

Police cruisers with their lights flashing surrounded the vehicle, but officers were allowing the alarm to blare. When Hahn — whose father is a police officer — asked an officer on duty why police weren’t shutting off the car alarm, the officer — identified in court documents as Officer Kenyatte Valentine — reportedly told her to mind her “own fucking business.”

1. The first. It seemed to me the officer was retaliating for a complaint to his headquarters.

So we better not complain when they abuse us? Great.

2. I don't have a favorite. They all suck in different ways and different potential outcomes.

3. None.

 

Today has been so newsworthy with the floods, the ship sinking and the airplane captain dying in air. The world news didn't even discuss the college at all. I watch ABC.

All three of those stories you list add to the already crappy news day.
