Video shows aggressive arrest by MPD in downtown Milwaukee

The video is nearly two minutes long -- and it's filled with jarring images and foul language -- all on Water Street.
TODAY'S TMJ4 spent the morning talking to witnesses who saw exactly what happened. They already had their phones out taking pictures of the Lamborghini as it drove away and couldn't believe what they saw next.

7. "focused strikes"? Is this from the police handbook?
By hiding the assault behind Orwellian terms suggests that this kind of assault is systematic in Milwaukee, not a few rogue cops.

8. I agree. The facility of euphemisms close at hand
is at least a sign of preplanning for spin control of such events.
Such phrases aren't kept close to mind if they are unneeded.
