"The racially charged videotape shows officers stomping on the innocent detainee after they responded to several 911 calls
for a report of an armed robbery in the parking lot of a night club near Lake Union.
In the video, a male officer is seen kicking the man who had been ordered to the ground while threatening him with racial
slurs. Shortly after, a female officer kicked the man in the back of his leg. "
Rest assured ... there will be an internal investigation.
In the video it is said:
"There is no reason for the violence."
Our police have become a force of thugs looking for a reason to draw a gun or a Taser. Unless you've been living at the South Pole or drink lots of fluoridated water this should be obvious by now.
It is mentioned in the video that a selection process for a new police chief is underway. If I were a police officer I would take into consideration that the leadership sets the tone. Just as the Federal government of the United States uses murder and torture to set the tone for the nation - the leaders of police forces also set the tone by condoning indiscriminate Taser use and letting cops off the hook for shooting citizens.
Here a Reporter gives his side of the above story:
Here is another recent police incident where excessive force, which has become the norm is used.
Now let's think about this for a minute.
As an American citizen am I to allow this to happen? This police behavior is clearly unjust. What can I do to stop it?
Since there is a movement by leaders like Senator Joseph Lieberman to silence dissenters simply by calling them a name (terrorist) - soon it may become dangerous to use the 1st Amendment when speaking out against excessive intrusions on our rights.
As the police continue their insane war on the public - blindly following clearly unconstitutional orders - using excessive force - brutalizing the public - sodomizing captives with Tasers (CLICK), and using Tasers to torture just about EVERYBODY it is inevitable that a natural backlash will take place...and it already has.
Do you remember this incident up in Seattle not too long ago? This is a guy Huckabee supposedly let out. Yeah they eventually caught up with the shooter and killed him - found a gun from the crime scene on him so they say... read entire article HERE (CLICK).
"Still unclear was why a man entered the coffee shop and gunned down Sgt. Mark
Renninger, 39; and Officers Ronald Owens, 37; Tina Griswold, 40; and Greg Richards 42.
"We have no motive at all," Troyer said. "I don't think when we find out what it is, it will be anything that makes any sense or be worth it.""
Or perhaps this situation in California is another mystery:
Police brutality compilation - this is a must-see: "What is the charge - IT DOESN'T MATTER"
Maybe this is a worldwide epidemic - this police brutality? Regardless - violence begets violence - there is only one way this can end up - and that will be with an increasing public backlash climaxing when some triggering event finally wakes up the somnambulant masses. Hopefully the police forces will recognize this now and put an end to the cycle of violence before it becomes too late for them - as they will lose such a battle for sure.
