I’m sure someone will point out that the teen was eventually found guilty. But that doesn’t change the fact that the police were beating a kid who was not fighting back.

    What’s the difference between mafia arm-breaking goons and the local police?

    The local police are our goons … we hope.

    Why are we surprised that the Houston police acted this way?

    They’re the same kind of people that the Egyptian people are rioting in the streets about.

    Hey, he’s a dirt bag. Give the cops a break!
    We always give rapists and child molesters
    a break.

    #28 notatall I was not defending this, just explaining some of the context. My first thoughts were how quickly videos normally hit the news and this one, involving possible police misconduct, didn’t. Funny how that works.

    #34 malone Had the 15 yr old been officially recognized as a “dirt bag” or is this totally left up to the discretion of the cops?

    Of course they didn’t to release the video. That’s a no-brainer – I can’t think of anything that would more incriminating.

    I can. It would involve searching police lockers though.
