LAPD are domestic terrorists.

LAPD chief Beck yesterday called Chris Dorner a "domestic terrorist". What then does this look like to you?



Edit: 2008

"Officers beat a homeless man for eating sunflower seeds on San Julian Street as onlookers plead for them to stop. Man is subsequently taken away in an ambulance."

(San Julian is on LA's Skid Row. Video by LA CAN, or Community Action Network. If you want more LAPD domestic terrorism stories, I have a few other items from the last year currently floating in GD.)

3. I will personally escort you to Skid Row to say that to this man, who was beaten by

 

multiple officers. I will let you listen to those who have suffered similarly.

I do note that the video is much longer than the time it took you to post your reply. You have not actually watched the video. Shame.

6. The video is lacking in context. What happened for the several minutes before it starts?

 

I'm not going to accept your claim that all the man was doing was eating sunflower seeds.

I'm also not going to assume that the cops are innocent of abusing the man.

There's just not enough information here to see what happened. Do you have a link to a more complete video, or an actual news account of the incident?

Without context, it appears that you are simply throwing bombs.

10. Again: I've done copwatch on Skid Row, as have those who posted the video. Have you?

 

And you justify that many cops descending upon a man who wishes to not be beaten, who is then beaten and taken away in an ambulance? Is there any reason which could justify such a swarm, such brutality? What is your opinion of what was done to Rodney King?

You say the video is out of context, yet you gave a dismissive opinionated response without having watched it. ???

to the homeless, to activists, anyone. Which is my point. That is why there is copwatch. That is why Beck calling Dorner a domestic terrorist is the ultimate hipocrisy.

And you made a dismissive, opinionated reply without actually watching the video. Please stop posting.

20. What is the date the video was taken? What's the name of the man who was beaten? What...

 

...hospital was he taken to?

What were the nature and extent of his injuries?

Has he been released from the hospital?

Where is he now? Is he in custody? In the psychiatric lockup? Where?

Has he been charged with any crimes?

Are the police officers who did this being investigated? What are their names? Are they still on duty?

What are the names of people who witnessed the event?

25. Dictionary flaming? Nice. If 16 cops beating a single black homeless man doesn't give you pause

 

nothing will. And I note that you firmly place the focus upon the victim and not the aggressors. Why not go to the youtube page of LA CAN, who recorded and posted the video. Contact them and ask your questions. If they have the time to explain the truth to someone determined to not see what is directly in front of them. Be certain to let them know the opinion you posted without actually having watched the video.

Why not check my other LAPD threads in GD? There's plenty of victim blaming ready.

I stand by my comment.

I think it's great that people are trying to hold the LAPD accountable. You're not doing a very good job of it by presenting the middle of a story. What happened at the beginning? How about the end?

Who is LA CAN? Could you at least supply a link to their YT page?

86. Great. So what. This is not about his credibility, it's about the credibility of that video.

How are you making the claims you made regarding what is actually taking place here?

Your video opens with two cops holding and searching a person on the sidewalk, followed my more cops arriving and yes, using some excessive force (from what we have been shown here) to place him in custody.

Your claim of "...for only eating sunflower seeds on the sidewalk" is not supported by this video, nor is ANYTHING you claim.

When, where was this taken? Where is the WHOLE video? Where can one see it in it's entirety so that proper context can be given and the viewer has a better idea of what is actually happening here?





Kindly note: I am not saying you are wrong. I am not saying the cops are right. I am not saying anything. I am asking you a question.

And if questions elicit any response that is not an answer to those questions, credibility will diminish.

89. It is from the LA Community Action Network, or LA CAN. Right-click to back-link to their youtube

 

page for more video of LAPD malfeasance, as what is shown is not an isolated incident :/

I've personally seen LAPD hassle the homeless for no reason other than to do so. I live here. I've done copwatch on Skid Row and I trust the LA CAN personnel. And the text accompanying the video is theirs, not mine. The homeless are criminalized in this city, as are the poor and people of color. I've seen the homeless get hassled (and one time cops left when they saw me video'ing them doing so; the man they were shaking down was grateful and called me a blessing, IIRC) but not beaten; I have however been assaulted by LAPD as have my fellow Occupy activists. I've done court support and seen cops happy to show up to get peaceful people held to what amounts to nuisance arrests and made-up felony charges designed to discourage and frighten (which is part of the FBI's definition of terrorism!).

What is actually happening there? Exactly what appears to be happening. I'm really sorry that is so difficult for some to parse. Some things are exactly what they appear to be.

94. Again, you respond with obfuscation to the questions being asked, seemingly because they cannot be

answered.

I don't need to see OTHER videos. Your experience with LAPD and it's malfeasance has no bearing ON THIS VIDEO and the claims you made regarding it's context.

In a nutshell, you are telling all of us to "trust you. You know what you are talking about." I don't doubt you. Thank you for being on the front line in exposing police brutality.

But guess what? That is not good enough. This video has been edited to remove the context showing what is actually taking place. Why are you unable to understand that casual viewers are not given any valid context for this video, except for your own comments, and many require more than just the opinion of an anonymous poster on the internet?

want answered, you would have possibly had an answer by now. THIS is why I'm not entertaining your posts. You want to argue, which is clear, because you refuse to accept you've twice been given the contact info to those who can answer all of your questions regarding the video. You want those specific answers, great. I've given you the source. Please to enjoy. But I don't know if you would believe them either. Good luck, I've given you everything you've requested.

and more about your agenda.

While you may be 100% correct in all you say, your failure to provide ANYTHING resembling context and your failure to validate the concerns that any casual viewer may have regarding the video you posted and the comments you made.

Good luck with your quest.

120. My agenda is to present a clear depiction of police brutality. If you cannot get that from what is

 

presented, it is clearly not my fault. Your determined refusal to accept what is clear and plain is merely a distraction (which is YOUR agenda) from real and clear brutality and unfairness. Many, many "casual viewers" in this thread can see this video for exactly what it is. Good luck in life if you cannot. For the context and reality is LA downtown, where as I've said over and over, the poor and homeless and people of color are criminalized and are daily harassed, where LAPD engage in criminal behavior with no accountability, where all eyes must be turned so that this may CHANGE.

You obviously care not one whit about these victims. Good luck with THAT.

If you're really trying to say that you watched a full 10 seconds before commenting, that's pretty pathetic. And even if you had (you didn't), you'd still be unequipped to make that comment. Funny how these pieces of shit cops always get a pass from you. You couldn't care less about the rampancy of police brutality in this country.

Which suits your motives quite nicely. You're welcome to have your opinion just as we're welcome to note how your opinion is wholly ignorant and based upon not having actually watched the video in question. Like quite a few of your comments on matters such as these, it was formed without even attempting to educate yourself. That's just sad.

I agree with you that there are questions to be asked, but the knee jerk defense of cops engaged in brutality is sick. I'm imaging there ISN'T more video available, or perhaps the LAPD has it and doesn't want it released. There is a witness that informs the viewer of what happened first and I'm far, far more likely to believe that witness than anything provided by the LAPD. And considering I see the LAPD doing what every damned crooked cop does and scream "Stop resisting!!!!!", even though the "suspect" had stopped resisting long, long ago, I know that these guys are pretty awful excuses for human beings. I always hear people asking for additional context when they see cops beating the shit out of people who are not even close to resisting. Everything you need to know as to who is deadly in the wrong here is plainly presented in video. Cops are NOT allowed to go around beating the shit out of people because they feel like it. Beating the shit out of people who are defenseless and on the ground is NEVER allowed. Those cops are pieces of shit who belong in jail.

The lack of context for the video, coupled with the OP's adamant refusal to address a few logical questions are, IMO, quite telling.

I applaud the OP's passion for exposing police brutality and malfeasance, but doing it the manner she has done here hurts her cause. It helps not at all.

all the while screaming "stop resisting!". That homeless man is then taken away in an ambulance because of the beatdown he received. That is all the context one needs to know that those cops are worthless pieces of shit who belong in jail.

What astounds me is we're supposed to give Dorner the benefit of the doubt and due process despite his written admissions but a video edited ala James O'Keefe is admissable, irrefutable and unquestionable because it plays into the narrative that Dorner has a righteous axe to grind even though he's admitted to targeting people unrelated to his grievances.

How is the OP making the claims she made regarding what is actually taking place here?

The video open with two cops holding and searching a person on the sidewalk, followed my more cops arriving and yes, using what may appear to be excessive force (from what we have been shown here) to place him in custody.

The OP's claim of "...for only eating sunflower seeds on the sidewalk" is not supported by this video, nor is ANYTHING she claims.

When, where was this taken? Where is the WHOLE video? Where can one see it in it's entirety so that proper context can be given and the viewer has a better idea of what is actually happening here?

54. actually, not.

and if you're going to cite from a source- in this case, wiki- you need to provide a link instead of passing something off as your own words.

Lacking here is the political element. The LAPD is corrupt. It certainly has a shitload of criminal actions in its history (both old and very recent), but no, it's not a terrorist operation.

From wiki:

Terrorism is the systematic use of terror, often violent, especially as a means of coercion. In the international community, however, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal law definition. Common definitions of terrorism refer only to those violent acts which are intended to create fear (terror); are perpetrated for a religious, political or, ideological goal; and deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (civilians). Some definitions now include acts of unlawful violence and war. The use of similar tactics by criminal organizations for protection rackets or to enforce a code of silence is usually not labeled terrorism, though these same actions may be labeled terrorism when done by a politically motivated group. The writer Heinrich Böll and scholars Raj Desai and Harry Eckstein have suggested that attempts to protect against terrorism may lead to a kind of social oppression.

The word "terrorism" is politically and emotionally charged, and this greatly compounds the difficulty of providing a precise definition. Studies have found over 100 definitions of “terrorism”. The concept of terrorism may be controversial as it is often used by state authorities (and individuals with access to state support) to delegitimize political or other opponents, and potentially legitimize the state's own use of armed force against opponents (such use of force may be described as "terror" by opponents of the state).

The LAPD is clearly, as I said in what you moronically call a defense, criminal in many of its actions and corrupt. That does not make it, de facto, a terrorist operation anymore than Chris Dorner is a terrorist. Just because someone or some organization instills fear/terror, does not make that person/organization a practitioner of terrorism.

As I said, it's a vastly overused word.

As far as your cute little claim that I'm "not bright enough..." could you be any more petulant or childish?

That's pretty fucking stupid.

And if the best you've got is to accuse me of plagiarism and then bullshit and lie to make your point, that's pretty pathetic.

Notice you didn't say I plagiarized from Merriam Webster which follows my words far more closely than Wiki. Perhaps that might be because I'm educated and actually know of which I speak? There are hundreds of other words I could provide definitions for as well, it's called being literate, you might want to look into it. Unlike you who wouldn't know what terrorism is if it bit you in your ass? Like you who'd defend the LAPD when they consistently attack, torture and imprison innocent people. Without a doubt a textbook definition of terrorism. You are not only making bogus claims, but you are flat out lying.

And you're also so incredibly ignorant as to not realize that Dorner is a terrorist? Again, there is not a more appropriate word to describe Dorner. He's a terrorist using terrorist tactics on another terrorist organization. That you don't see this only further shows how incredibly ignorant you are on this issue.

105. No, I simply tried to make the point that the word terrorist is overused. duh.

look, you're a simplistic, black and white "thinker".

The LAPD is a large organization. Clearly it has done some very bad things and has a long history of corruption, but that isn't the sum total of the LAPD- anymore than atrocities committed by some National Guard members, for instance constitute the sum total of The National Guard. Large institutions are almost never without corruption and criminal activity. Part of that is an extension of institutional behavior. It's complicated.

The LAPD needs to be investigated by an independent entity. It needs reform. It needs, in simple words, to clean house, but it does not need to be abolished. Would that we lived in a place and time where police weren't needed. We do not.

Terrorism as a word suffers from such pervasive overuse and misuse that its been rendered near meaningless. I don't use it. At all. It's just become a bogie word like "Communism" during the 50s and 60s. It's used by people to indicate the worst possible thing anybody or any entity could be. It's fucking lazy to fling it about as a monkey flings shit.

At this point, who or what hasn't been labeled with the "T" word? President Bush was. President Obama has been. So has Congress, the Tea Party and on and on.

Surely it's not that hard to articulate one's thoughts about a person or organization without falling back on a word so overused that it now means virtually nothing.

Well, I wish it weren't.

Now you're trying to move the goalposts and just say the term is overused. The term may be overused, but there's no more appropriate word to describe the LAPD. The LAPD needs to be rebuilt from the ground up, pretty much everyone there needs to be removed and replaced. No one is suggesting that LA be completely without a police force, that is simply a strawman. The group employs terrorism, it does it on a daily basis.

5. of, pertaining to, or characteristic of terrorism or terrorists: terrorist tactics.

Besides, the most beautiful thing about the label is that it is so perfectly flexible. Anybody can be labeled a terrorist for merely objecting to anything, and then we can kill them with righteousness intact.

15. A second African American Former LAPD Officer posted his Manifesto on FB last night

It's interesting that he cc'd OccupyPolice. Facebook has already removed it "This content is currently unavailable"

~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *


In its entirety, it reads exactly (typos and grammatical errors included):



“My Former LAPD Officer Joe Jones MANIFESTO…

I know most of you who personally who me are in disbelief of the partial story I will tell today. A story that has been suppressed for about 18 years, But lives strong everyday of my life.

I without hesitation would like to send my condolences to the Victims who were lost and their families during this tragic situation. I would also like to send my condolences and well wishes to the many former and current Officers, as well as Citizen’s and their families who lost the lives and souls of loved one’s to the injustices of Police Corruption, Scandal, Lies, Deception and Brutality.

Unlike Former Officer Dorner, I fear dying; But I also fear living in a society where Innocent people are dying for no reason. A society where pain so great can be afflicted to people who have to desire to live right and treat people right and then be punished for doing right.

They say we all look alike. In very few cases this of course is true. But in most cases it is not. I feel a resemblance to Dorner, (See Photos) However several people who have no resemblance to Dorner have been shot due to the fear of what is taking place. I DO NOT WANT TO BE SHOT FOR CRIMES I DID NOT COMMIT!. Neither does anyone else.

To preface my story I will say this: Just like former Officer Christopher Dorner I used to smile a lot. I loved everyone. I was voted Friendliest Senior of my Sr. Class in High School. I always believed in the system and never got into any trouble. I loved hard and gave to all I could. After Joining the LAPD in 1989 I quickly found out that the world and society had major flaws. I had flaws as well for ever believing that our system of government was obligated to do the right thing. his is what I believed as a young Officer. Without going into major detail, I need you to first assume that I would not surface 16 years later with lies about a situation that has me with PTSD to this very day. The pain forces me to speak as I have yet to shake the Ill’s of my experience as an LAPD Officer. Of course I have moved on physically. But mentally and emotionally I still live with flaws.

I can’t go into re-living the emotions of what I went through so I will say this. I had my home viciously attacked by a gunman with my family and myself inside the house. No arrests were made and my family and I Received very little support. I had my Civil Rights violated on several occasions. I was falsely arrested at gunpoint by the Sheriffs as an Officer who ID’d himself and was conspired against by both LAPD and the Sheriffs when my Civil case went to Trial. I was falsely accused on more than one occasion and simply placed in a position that the trust was so compromised that I could no longer wear the Uniform. Also know there were many more episodes. All of these issues are well documented and I present them not to be a Whistle blower, However to hope that one would not assume that all of what is being said is Lies as presented by Dorner. I don’t know him, But I know me. I will say from my experience, If a person knows they were wrong it is easier to move on without anger. Seems that Dorner obviously could not move on… Could I just be content and move on with my life and not say anything? Yes…Then I would feel that I for once had my chance to speak on something that hurts me to this day and I did nothing to arouse thought or provoke reform. This is what I hope comes from this whole situation:

1. Families that lost someone to this tragedy find the peace that only God can give at this terrible time.

2. Citizens of Los Angeles be mindful of this fearful time to be an Officer and comply vigorously so that you are not the victim of an Officer on high alert.

3. Government and Politicians please be diligent in the responsibility of creating Laws that protect those who could be the victim of a conspiracy. Never allow the door to be shut on the Truth.

4. Honest and Fair LAPD & All Agencies: Keep doing what you are doing to protect citizens and be safe while you are doing so. We need you and I would hope that you do not allow the Bureaucratic drama and Stress to kill your morale as I know it can.

5. Unethical LAPD & all Agencies: Whatever is was that lead you down this path, Pray to somebody’s God to forgive you and begin to remove unethical methods to your policing style. Always think what if it were you, How would you feel?..How would you like if you were falsely accused and your life, lively-hood and career was taken from you? How would you like if someone was beating on you just because they felt they could get away with it? You are no better the criminals you took and oath to arrest when you do what you do!

6. Chistopher Dorner. The 1st thing I would say to him is, I feel your pains!…But you are going about this the wrong way. To take innocent lives could never be the answer to anything. I say this as a Man who experienced the same pain, betrayal, anger, suffering, litigation and agony that you did in many ways, Only I didn’t get Fired. I just choose to go a different route. My heart still suffered that same shock, I was still left to try and put the pieces back together. The disbelief that people could conspire and cause you to loose something you loved so dearly was still there. I lost my Career, I lost my Family, I lost my Dignity, I lost my Trust…But I am here now to hopefully one day see change…Bro, Don’t kill anymore Innocent people. Your point has been made. Clearly. They know you mean business, The whole world knows. Refrain from any further wrong doing and do what you must to salvage your Soul. Whatever that means to you. Just remember that God is a forgiving God.

In conclusion I say to people who knew none of this about me that one day I will have to reflect on when was the time to speak. When I see the potential for innocent lives to be lost…The time is Now!…JJ”

How is that connected to the rest of it or are those other situations?

Is he lumping in Sheriffs with the LAPD?

The weird thing is that both these guys aren't so upset with LAPD treatment of the public, but of themselves. If there is that much corruption, shouldn't there be more documentation of injustices done to the public? If its not there, is it because they themselves are participants?

Instead they all turn it into workplace problems.

19. I don't know if they are domestic terrorists.

But they are clearly out of control. LA is a difficult geographical area to police and the actual police only make it more difficult. The lack of trust the citizens have in the PD, and rightfully so, makes safety and security even worse. I can only imagine that the last thing a citizen wants to do is to have any interaction with the LAPD. It is pretty clear that the upper ranks are only there to protect and serve themselves.

46. LAPD are corrupt and must be thoroughly revised. On local mainstream media they are damning Dorner

 

and utterly fail to mention that he was attempting to out severe departmental corruption. So long as corporate and political media are failing to report that critical aspect of the overall story, I will bring it to light.

An LAPD assaulted me with a baton repeatedly during a peaceful 1st Amendment action. My comrades got grabbed, one from behind, arrested, and given felonies. I personally understand that they break the law at will and make it up as they go, all the while protecting themselves and each other. I can only empathize with those who have had to live under similar conditions downtown, all these years.

55. Most attempts to out corruption are best served

when not accompanied by multiple cold-blooded murders and an unfocused, celebrity-obsessed manifesto.

Your inability and/or unwillingness to condemn Dorner's actions without hastily mentioning the LAPD is clear indication
that you at least in part excuse his rampage. Sorry, but I can't excuse it at all, especially when LAPD corruption and
brutality are practically in the canon of popular culture. I have learned more about LAPD corruption from watching LA Confidential
than from Dorner, and LA Confidential didn't murder three people.

I'm sorry you were assaulted by cops.

70. I do not condone his ALLEGED murders (innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, remember)

 

and shame on you for taking that from my posts. LAPD have murdered innocent citizens, assaulted and shot and harassed and violated civil rights for decades or longer, and THEY have the gall to call Dorner a "domestic terrorist" in hopes of gaining sympathy, while local media, what small amount I've seen, are of course staunchly on the cops side and aren't even mentioning that Dorner had cited many cases of corruption and abuse, which must be fully investigated by outside agencies. He sent a DVD of supposed evidence backing up his claims of abuse, but none has yet to appear or to my knowledge, to have been discussed.

LAPD are indeed domestic terrorists by the FBI definition of the use or threat of violence to seek to cause a group to change their politics.

OccupyLA, short version, March 17 2012:



Macarthur Park 2007:



Published on Dec 20, 2010

This is a documentary created by members of Revolutionary Autonomous Communities and community members of Westlake/Pico Union. This is a people account of what really happen May 1st 2007 on MacArthur Park, when the LAPD's Metro unit attacked a peaceful march and rally of community members, activist, labor organizers, the corporate media, ETC. No profits were made on this film and all the footage and Music belongs to it's original owners. So please post and share this film for the world to see, because we will never let this be swept under the rug. With Music by Rebels To The Grain and many other L.A. based musicians.

attributed him. If there is video, I'll accept it. If not, I'll wait until a court of law finds evidence clearly and directly linking him. Police are allowed to lie as they gather evidence; it's a law. Considering my experience of LAPD and LA city hall as an Occupy activist, including court support, I'll have to say it's entirely possible it's a lie, and I'll remain open to evidence. If there is some please link to it?

This does not mean I condone the acts attributed to him.

37. "LAPD are domestic terrorists"? Yes, if you consider the US Code and the FBI's definition:

 

From the National Institute of Justice:

"The search for a universal, precise definition of terrorism has been challenging for researchers and practitioners alike. Different definitions exist across the federal, international and research communities.

"Title 22 of the U.S. Code, Section 2656f(d) defines terrorism as “premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents, usually intended to influence an audience.”

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”

"Both definitions of terrorism share a common theme: the use of force intended to influence or instigate a course of action that furthers a political or social goal. In most cases, NIJ researchers adopt the FBI definition, which stresses methods over motivations and is generally accepted by law enforcement communities.

40. Yes. And as an Occupy activist in LA, I can assure you that they are using force and threat and

 

courts to attempt to get everyone who shows up, to stop and go home and stay there. And that's just against activists. Consider the long-term oppression of the homeless on Skid Row. I can assure you and have posted here in GD that the homeless in LA have been criminalized and are being pressured to leave that area because ccala.org, a haughty business lobby with strong influence in city hall (and thus, LAPD), are attempting to gentrify that area. They succeeded in doing so to an area a while back; it is depicted in the book and film "The Soloist", so their new attack upon Skid Row is terrorism, but for profit purposes. (Bratton's "safer cities initiative" provides IIRC $6,000,000 a year to fund an extra 50 police in Skid Row, and that number has recently been upped again. Something like 4.7 or 5.7 million dollars are spent on the homeless citywide per year. That's citywide, not just the small zone of Skid Row, which is within walking distance of City Hall.)

A few months ago, an area of Skid Row not even mentioned in the city's health study of the area was increasingly pressured by LAPD and ccala.org's "redshirts", who are their corporate security squads (yes, roving corporate security with zero accountability to the public). This area was Occupy Skid Row. They agreed to pack up to allow a larger-than-usual street cleaning, but once through the safety tape, were not allowed back in to get the rest of their property. LA CAN and OccupyLA lawyers were present and got them back in to get all of their stuff. One person who had been allowed through against a red light (cop lifted the safety tape to let them cross on the red light) was then given a ticket for it. Once the cleaning was done, it was announced that everyone could not return and must go elsewhere. We moved everything back anyway. Cops came and formed a line and pressed us down the street, clearing it again completely. News crews from Spanish channels began to arrive and the cops backed off. Occupy Skid Row set up again in their spot. Later that evening, among many police cruisers which did slow drive-bys, one came through with LAPD chief Charlie Beck in the passenger seat, looking over the situation. I saw the vehicle but not Beck, but everyone was saying it was him. This shows how much sway cca have in city hall, and how much far up the decision tree little goes little things such as homeless activists and the ground and rights they defend.

Cops stepped up their bullying and made nuisance arrests and at least for a while, managed to break up the group. Domestic terrorism.

Your video open with two cops holding a searching a person on the sidewalk, followed my more cops arriving and yes, using some excessive force (from what we have been shown here) to place him in custody.

Your claim of "...for only eating sunflower seeds on the sidewalk" is not supported by this video, nor is ANYTHING you claim.

When, where was this taken? Where is the WHOLE video? Where can one see it in it's entirety so that proper context can be given and the viewer has a better idea of what is actually happening here?





Kindly note: I am not saying you are wrong. I am not saying the cops are right. I am not saying anything. I am asking you a question.

And if questions elicit any response that is not an answer to those questions, credibility will diminish.

You presented it without any direct indication of timeliness therefore a lot of people, including me, initially assumed it to be fresh information. That's not a good way to start an honest discussion about abuses by the LAPD.

So, what ever happened to the sunflower seed man, or to the cops who were attempting to detain him in the context of an effort to clean up LA's Skid Row? Did he get help for whatever behavior problems caused him to struggle rather than cooperate with the police?

Were any officers fired or otherwise disciplined? From the video, it looks like they were taking great pains not to hurt the man. He was supposedly aken to a hospital afterward, but you haven't given any indication of why. Was he taken to detox? Put in the psych hospital for a 72-hour evaluation? Was he treated and released? Was he ever charged with a crime, such as felony eating sunflower seeds, or littering and creating a nuisance?

Where is he now? What is his name?

130. Once upon a time I was married to a member of the local constabulary.

I can see him and his cohorts doing something like this. There are two things you have to remember about the police.
1. They aren't recruiting choir boys or candidates for sainthood.
2. If they were to recruit those types, they would find themselves in a crowd of people whose morals are weaker than their penchant for violence. That remains the case in the PD here, too.

That's a recipe for disaster: the powerless get the violent acts. The homeless, runaways, prostitutes, the kid down the street they don't like. It's also a recipe for domestic violence.

Moreover, this kind of problem is systemic. Don't glorify the police or the military, and a lot of this stuff goes away.

140. Anyone who denies this as an act of injustice or being excusable is wrong

Regardless of what happened prior to the beginning of the recording, the guy was not fighting or resisting at any time. And how many police were needed for this one arrest? Certainly evidenced by the number of law enforcement coming to assist at the scene would leave any observer to believe someone capable of injuring masses of people was apprehended, on the level of a suicide bomber, mass murderer, heavily armed thug or terrorist. Viewing the clip showed me terrorists, by definition, were involved; note the 's' on the end of terrorist - I saw terrorists and not a terrorist.

The authority of the police has grown out of control. We must support any efforts we can to bring the efforts of law enforcement agencies across the country to have police protecting ALL the public and not the powers that be.
