    Where does the law state that cops have to sit back and do nothing, while criminals run buck wild? What if that boy got away, and murdered someone later that night? I guess you think that would be ok?

    I is not for me to criticize to kid, I do not know what happened so I defer to the prosecutors and the justice system. For all I care they can hang him later, but only if justly convicted.

    Maybe, maybe not, but it doesn't change the reality that if this kid hadn't been breaking the law, he wouldn't have gotten roughed up.

    It was a question, not a statement.

    Well, we do have a bit of a movement to make every one of these incidents into a cause for outrage no matter what the facts are. The Outrage Industry REALLY likes this kind of video and they tend to pimp the hell out of it. Basically, a lot of what we're seeing is a manufactured response to a minor issue.

    That's true but under no circumstances should we tolerate abusive practices by the state.

    NYPD Cops Investigated For Allegedly Pistol-Whipping Unarmed Teen (VIDEO)

    Two New York City police officers were under criminal investigation for allegedly beating an unarmed 16-year-old who was raising his hands in a show of surrender, the news website DNAinfo New York reported on Tuesday.


    The website's investigative unit, "On The Inside," obtained surveillance footage that it said showed the Aug. 29 incident in Brooklyn.


    In the footage, two officers were seen running up to a teenager, who was identified by DNAinfo as Kahreem Tribble. The teen, reportedly suspected of possessing marijuana, stopped running and was punched in the face by one of the officers, according to DNAinfo. Tribble then raised his hands and the second officer used his gun to allegedly clock Tribble in the face, according to the website.

    snip
    I don't know if its just me, but it seems the commonality between these incidents of police stepping over the line in using excessive force is white police officers and black men? I wonder if this means something?
