    I said "plenty", not most.

    I myself am white (edit: VERY white - I'm pale even though it's summer - of course working indoors and not being awake much during the day probably helps), and my only experience with police has been after an accident or when stopped for some traffic violation earlier in life. Some of the officers struck me as assholes, but beyond that...

    Obviously I realize my experiences would not have placed me in a situation to see the potential bad, but that doesn't mean your experiences are an accurate picture either. Personal experience is very rarely the whole picture.

    There are plenty of good officers.

    The problem is that finding the bad involves investigating all, and they're basically the investigators (in some cases).

    That's bull****. When the "bad" are investigated the police chief just gives them the all-clear. Or just record them on camera behaving badly.

    Well that explains, unfortunately.

    I already posted some links on the difference in how police treat their own kind and those that aren't.

    That was kinda my point, actually.

    That said, it's highly situational - some cities will have mostly good police forces, others a more even distribution, and some few will be mostly bad.

    Part of that is due to leadership, of course.

    It'd have to be something fairly extreme to justify punching someone you're sitting on in the face.

    Kinda need to know, before condemning the guy as a racist. I know folks can't help themselves, but those of us with more common sense know better.

    Just for fun, can you come up with a plausible scenario that would justify the face punching?

    We know it'll be made up and won't hold you to it.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    This could have been a confrontation that, for whatever reason, got very emotional. By walking off the way she did, she was resisting. She was obviously fighting back when he took her down. She might have assaulted him, before she started walking off. How do we know either way?

    We only saw a few seconds of what could have been going on for several minutes. A few seconds isn't enough to say for sure what went down. Have we even heard his side of the story, yet? Or are we just going to go on a few seconds of video?
