    U of Maryland student beaten by police

    University of Maryland Student Brutally Beaten By Police After Basketball Game

    Newly-released video showing police officers brutally beating a University of Maryland student is raising questions as to whether the officers lied in a sworn statement to cover up their actions. The video directly contradicts the officers' sworn statements after the events, and already, one officer has been stripped of his powers as the Prince George's County police chief promises a full investigation.
    Other students on campus said the attack on McKenna wasn't the only time that police beat students the night of the basketball game. One student told WJLA-TV that he witnessed at least five attacks, and McKenna's lawyer has a theory explaining why.

    OK, fair enough.

    This sort of thing needs to be exposed and protested, or we're likely to descend into a police state.

    How's that?

    We've been a police state for a long time now. Can you imagine how many brutal beatings don't get caught on tape?

    I would suspect that this young man is being hounded to death by lawyers.

    You know, typically, I would cover all bets saying that the cops will get off. I mean, historically, most of the time, they always do. But this time, I'm not so sure.

    The days of cops beating the **** out of people simply because they usually get away with it, are nearing an end.

    However, I don't think they will ever stop beating the **** outta people in L.A. or New Orleans. It's tradition there. Who are we to buck tradition?

    Probably so. If it were me, I'd be looking for the meanest pit bull of a lawyer I could find, even if I had to draw a pentagram on the floor and conjure him up. The cops would pay.

    It's a tradition that needs to end and those responsible need to serve life without parole in general population.

    Police abuse their authority routinely. That is what happens when you give a group absolute power backed by the local government and little supervisory force monitoring their actions. Self-reporting doesn't work as they can easily lie, and the justice system tends to take the word of police over the public any day.

    In Canada there have been numerous scandals against the RCMP (our equivalent of the FBI) in the past two years, a couple of cases which led to public inquiry, and the whole thing has been a joke. The RCMP is blatantly protected by the government no matter how obvious it is to the intelligent members of the public who can see that abuse happened.

    Cops get off easy.
