    It's not race-baiting, it's antiestablishmentarian, inverted moral and institutional panic. Conversely, OP wouldn't have needed to post the harpsichord version because that would have come from the Birchers with a rhetorical query as to the whereabouts of Messrs Sharpton and Jackson.

    So you're holding police officers to the same expectations as poor minority groups... Police officers who are educated, trained, and take an oath to protect and serve...???
    A few cops who do shyt like this is too damn many.

    Your ignorance is sad but yet funny at the same time...

    This was a horrible incident, and it's scary how close these cops came to getting away with it, and how close that poor guy was to getting a bogus criminal record.

    What is possibly more disturbing is the posters that seem to ignore it and state that if everyone just acted nicely and did the right thing these beatings wouldn't happen.

    This guy wasn't doing anything wrong, and they did this to him. It's not about making sure you don't do anything wrong. It needs to be about regulating and holding authorities accountable when they abuse their power.

    It's a stupid question.

    When is the last time 2 black cops savagely beat up a white man for running a stop sign on a moped?
