18. that happened in the city I work for
The man was the principal of a charter school. He was sitting in his BMW in a gas station parking lot. The cops broke his window and pulled him out of the car. In the end he was clubbed in the head with a nightstick and required stitches. Of course the fact that the man was black was just icing on the cake as far as the cops were concerned.
