Well, this clip got my wife pissed

Not often I hear such swear words from her mouth. Ruthless thugs these enforcers for the elite have become...

Every altercation that's contested or reported

should result in anger management classes... with Jack Nicholson! :O

these police are ruthless

these police are ruthless thugs.

where are all the good police? why aren't they speaking out against the thugs?


The good people of this nation who are police, military, FBI, CIA, government need to speak out for what is wrong.

Gestapo Tactics - Enjoy their Power Over Others

Four big thugs on top of a skinny little skateboarding boy-man whose hands are tied ??? These guys like to hurt people. Some join the police force so that they can bully, punch, beat people up. They look like fascist Nazi SS and Gestapo who were always brutal, and seemed to enjoy their POWER over others.

These four need to lose their jobs and also be jailed for assault and battery. This should not be a private hearing within police ranks. What happened is on film. Let them be jailed as anyone else would be if they committed this brutality.

Let justice be done. These thugs cannot be allowed to be above the law or protected by an internal police investigation. No excuse for this brutality.
Jail time. This cannot be allowed.

Need More Steroid Testing

It should be routine after every physical altercation cops get themselves into. Perhaps they'll learn how to develop their interpersonal communications skills as an alternative to the seeming default mode of violence.
(In the video they don't even bother with the "stop resisting!" mantra).

More effective: their pay should be docked

and a warning. 3 strikes and you're out.




BUMP. Gov't is out of control...
