I can claim that the government spied on my personal computer and stole information, another person could claim such thing is illegal.
Claims do not equal fact.
IF what the individual who was injured says comes to light as being the actual truth of the matter then I think the cops in question went too far...IE, the guy was not doing anything threatening, his injury came from a cannister, and said cannister was actually fired from a weapon by an officer.
However, at this point I have no idea if his story is true or not and nothing substantial enough to lead me to believe its true any more than for me to doubt its veracity. At this point I am not going to demand that the government prove something, that their response was appropriate, that may not be provable because it may not have happened as stated. I'm going to do the same thing I do in most matters or potential illegality...wait until all the emotion of the immediete circumstances dies out and try to look at all the facts as they actually become clear and make a judgement once something solid seems to form. That, from what I've seen, isn't where this issue is.
The State is not required to "prove" every claim made against it is false or else accept that said claim is true. Its ridiculous and unrealistic to demand them to do such.I didn't make accusations. I merely claimed that the State must prove its case. It is the State which is limited, not the People.
