15. One thing I noticed was how the disruptor "managed" the encounter.
Every time the police contained him, he would carefully "demonstrate" his lack of resistance, and then do something to force the cops to work a little harder at restraining him. And he did this not once but several times, culminating with a "Please don't Tase me." that Brer Rabbit himself could not have bettered.

Police brutality is very real.

THIS was not police brutality.

This was a disruptive idiot deliberately goading the police into using the bare minimum force necessary to restrain him. And then doing it again. And again. So as to make it appear that the police were spiraling out of control.

Those cops were very aware of WHO was up on the stage and acted accordingly. They restrained themselves with this idiot, and as a result he was able to partially escape their control on multiple occasions and escalate the confrontation.
