7. 26 cops and 12 police vehicles, all for one unarmed black male…

Yeah, sounds about right.

Look, cops know full well when they start beating the shit out of someone, that person won't simply lay there and allow them to beat the living shit out of them while they're conscious… It's called a survival instinct.

They resist and the cops get their blood up like a pack of hungry wolves.

I'll bet you Kroners to Krispy Kremes that this whole thing started because of a botched Stop and Frisk. Young black male, probably minding his own business, upset because a couple of asshole coppers are harassing him for no apparent reason. Of course it turned bad… Why else would they want people with cameras being whisked away?

I'm sure that all the officer friendlies out there give you some nice warm fuzzies at night, but if you're a person of color in places like NYC, it's not the same thing.
