    I was playing the neutral position. When one deals with police, it just isn't the one cop they deal with, it is the judge and prosecutor as well, one guy is already outnumbered. Prosecutors have been known to "cheat" in order to rack up numbers for a possible "proven record."
    In small town, I've have seen four cop cars and 5 or more officers detain a suspect for a ticket. That's intimidation. That is how they do business. As I indicated, if there is no accountability for police, it will only get worse, and the people they deal with will only get behave worse.
    And the police that do bad, only give the good guys a bad name. Can we agree with that?

    Once the attitude of, " we don't have to comply with law enforcement," is reached, they open themselves up to treatment such as this.

    I watched the video, I didn't see the victim doing anything other than standing with his back against the wall, looking at his phone, then the cops walked up and started punching him.... that's what I saw, there was no audio at that time, so I don't know what was said.

    Are these Nigroes alien space people? I've never heard of them, maybe it is the Arizona heat? You do realize it is illegal to hunt camels in Arizona, that's a fact and just like this thread kinda funny. Oh is that some sort of racist BS, ah, I get it now. LOL Same stuff another day.

    Supposedly, a friend of the victim was trying to gain access to either a girlfriend's/exes apartment... illegally....at this point, I don't think the victim was involved in the attempted break-in.

    Edit....the victim supposedly offered to help the officers.

    "Nigroes" eh? I'm sure you're looking for constructive discussion by being inflammatory and racist.

    And it's no surprise to see the usual "small government" cons defend state thuggery. Muh freedom
