2. "People in handcuffs can be dangerous, don't get me wrong,"... yeah, but they aren't Jason Bourne

or James Bond. Those are f-ing movies. But that's not how Internal Affairs, District Attorneys, defense attorneys, and police/correctional unions approach these things.

Juries (grand or petit) are generally presented with this idea that every prisoner is some kind of Batman/ninja waiting to happen and so whatever is done to them can be explained away by appealing to danger and fear. And the citizens on those juries overwhelmingly go along with it.

Sick, sick, sick. Our nation is sick.
