Wow, that was seriously over the top.
Normally when you see videos of police brutality, it's often after they just wrapped up a car chase that went on for ten miles and causing a zillion dollars in accidents along the way. Does that make it right for the cops to subsequently beat them? No, not in the least. But at the same time....I get it.
The beating in this video was so outrageously unwarranted that my only reaction is plain astonishment.
Things like this make my blood boil. I want the assaulting officer thrown in a ring with two UFC fighters while his associate sits outside the cage in a cheerleading uniform like the scared little bitch that he is.
I'm not sure what the girls crime was, maybe she had killed other officers or something in her act of auto theft. It could have been something personal to the cop.
I'm not suggesting that this would justify his actions, but I would understand if that was the case. It's obvious that this guy lost his cool and took it out on the girl. I would be interested in why.
She looks black, or mixed to me.
Here's another article towards the end that tells he is the 3rd deputy to be charged with excessive force since 06, and he's been under investigation at least two other times. 2 were shooting related, and another one was when he used excessive force(imagine that) with a female motorist. If this guy serves a yr in prison he is lucky to only get that.
Beating caught on police video
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Also, police LOVE video cameras! It makes doing their job that much easier and virtually alleviates "my word over yours".
(most) Cops Rule !!!! God bless them all!!!
