    Baltimore on edge after arrestee's fatal spine injury[W:216]

    Baltimore on edge after arrestee's fatal spine injury

    Another man dead at the hands of police.

    The police also have video of the arrest that has not been made public yet. Will be interesting to see the entire incident.

    I had understood that the injury was not incurred on arrest but later.


    But we certainly do have a problem with our police and judiciary system.

    Yeah, it seems even worse than normal because this was done after he had been taken into custody. Cops need to quit killing so many folk, they're getting more domestic citizens dead than terrorists.

    Honestly I'm unclear, though when being dragged to the van his legs look lip, though he could just be resisting. I'm interested to see the result as I'm not far from Baltimore and visited the Inner Harbor there just a few weeks ago and was surprised at the number of police on patrol.

    He probably sneezed and they felt threatened so they snapped his spine.

    That does not justify the police causing the suspect's "spine was 80 percent severed at his neck." This is no longer about protecting others or following the law, this is about a growing problem of Police brutality up to and including murder. It is happening more frequently and it happens to correlate to an increasing militarization of our police force, where the active intention is to treat everyone as if they are an enemy of some degree.

    I simply do not buy this "obey the officer and you will be fine" sentiment any longer as we have too many examples of police doing whatever they want expecting to be able to operate above the law.

    Our real concern is this only ends one way, a real social backlash that we cannot whimsically dismiss. Too many people are dying at the hands of police for various reasons and in various conditions and there is not enough justification for all of it. It has to stop.

    I am sensing a pattern in your posts....What do you have against law and order?

    The posts sound to me like they are in favor of law and order and against rogue, out of control Police agencies. More USA people were killed by Police in the last 10 years than were killed in the Iraq War.
