1. Yeah, let's do this.
Seriously. I'm no good at vidding, but there are people who make fan vids out there in Youtubeland. I can see about cutting one together.

4. That last one in LA shouldn't be on this list
The guy getting clubbed by police was attacking a woman. He deserved what he got.

The rest are sickening. If some cop talked to and attacked my son like the one from the Baltimore PD, I'd own the police department.

5. If you were wealthy, yes
If poor, you would pay a price for raising an issue.
"Land of the free" :sarcasm:

6. Too many video cams about to keep the middle class down.
Look at all the videos above. Most were taken by people on the scene and used to secure lawsuit wins.

Thankfully, there is still some outlet for the poor and middle class.

12. Did you know that you can get arrested for videotaping the police now?
That's how they are trying to stem the tide of lawsuits these days.

8. Yeah but no-you can't criticize the police
They're allowed to beat handcuffed women. That woman was clearly a threat!

10. My favorite one is the guy out in water with his kid, threatening suicide
the cops go out in a canoe, attack, and try to mace the guy and the cop maced himself.

The next scene showed the cop bawling and trying to clear his eyes and the narrator declared that the cop was overcome with "emotion" and that is why he was crying.

Seen this clip countless times on several shows. It's bunk,

13. This is the reason so many Americans call them pigs.
Edited on Wed Jun-30-10 07:18 PM by TexasObserver
There are simply far too many police who routinely engage in brutality, with little or no provocation.
