    May as well post this with everything else going on. Is there a reason everyone is ignoring this?

    Irrelevant case, the cop was black so it doesn't further the "racism" angle.

    No it just furthers the angle that we need to ramp up the standards to be hired as a LEO.

    This certainly wasn't as entertaining as Austin's road rage event.

    Most "police brutality" cases don't end up being actual police brutality cases, I'm just pointing out how this case isn't a story because the cop is black. Without the ironically racist presumption of racism on the part of the officer this is allowed to be just self defense thus it's not a story. People are allowed to use their brains when it comes to this case but they wouldn't be allowed to do so if the officer was white, it's just how it is.
