Yes they overstepped their bonds in this case, so let's FIX the problem. Don't ruin our entire society over it.
Nope, we're just venting anger here - but I think to get the ball rolling to make changes we have to play the game in order to bring attention to
Terrorist blow up buildings - the media plays it over & over on the news in order to get a response from the people.
In this case we are both the media & the people. We are also the catalyst & possible the framers of an amicable solution.
I think it's clear as a society we're not going to let this behavior continue. Either we make changes to our laws and paint the lines for the
dodo's to specifically follow and bring corrections & police in line with our standards of civilized behavior or we will begin to see eruptions of
civil unrest created by and directed at those behaviorally corrupt organizations.
Reminds me of videos we see of Palestinian children throwing rocks at the Israelis cops - most the time the cops run or shoot rubber bullets, but
sometimes they get fed up a kill people. Are we going to see people throwing rocks at police here in America. Hmm I wonder what they would do? The way
things are now either kill them outright - claiming it was for my safety & he had a weapon, or beat them up and have the jailers tear their clothes
off and humiliate them to the point that they feel worse than if they were gang raped on the side of the road. At least if a gang raped you on the
side of the road you wouldn't have wake up in a cell & then instead of an empty wallet a permant record fines that go beyond that day including how
much money you can make in the future.
I believe video cameras everywhere (except in your private living area) are in the long run a good thing. Cameras protect us all as long as we all
have the same equal access to the data. When one group keeps the truth from another for their own selfish benefit - that's where the problem lies and
it seems to be part of this case as well. Another words they can use the cameras against you for your bad behavior, but the tape isn't made available
for you to use against them their behavior is unacceptable to society.
What I see in that video is the same mentality and manifestation of evil as what I saw in the LA Riots. It's easy for most of us whities to say
"they're bad gangsters & they should all be in jail for acting like that", but it's not so easy when people we pay and represent us as a society
are caught on tape doing the same as part of their job.
When I watched the trucker get beat by the gang in the LA Riots video - I become angry & wanted to do them in. I feel the same way watching the video
tape of the jailers doing what they did to the woman. I didn't know the gangsters or the trucker, but I easily identified those doing evil. I didn't
know the jailers or the woman & I easily identified the evil there. The gangsters have their argument and the jailers do too. As individuals they may
not all be evil, but when brought together as a group for one purpose they became the disciples of the Devil himself.
