Lethal force

I understand the emotion behind that for sure, but escalation of violence shouldn't exceed the initial violent act. A good sound beating should have been delivered to all of the cops evolved. I think shooting them is going a little to far in that instance since there was enough people to come to the man's aid. Now if it had been one or two citizens coming to this guys aid and the four cops then turned on them, lethal force I think would be justified. I hope those cops watched that tape later and realized that beating a guy for running on a field with a sign is just plain immoral and retarded.

The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
