This is a great example of how things should turn out in the end when the police choice to break the law instead of serve and protect the public. It still takes a video of the incident to get justice from the abuse that many are having to talerate from our own local police. Although I hope to read comments from ATS members sharing their spin on the subject I personally feel that the scale will tilt back in their direction as more and more police are attacking, beating and then deleting video taped evidence as the oppertunity is there for them to do so. "Turn that video off" "How do I know there isn't a gun in that camera?" "Do you know how many criminals have contracts our on us, you can't tape this" "If you don't turn that off I'll arrest you for obstruction" and so on....

And in this ONE instance WHERE THERE WAS A VIDEO, justice has prevailed.

Now as far as the other million or so instances.......

It takes a very disconnect individual to attack somebody in a wheelchair, it's incredible!

I suspect it's this kind of thing that makes them try to introduce laws that make it illegal to film cops. I know it's not all cops, but it seems quite a few overstep the mark, and the more the public finds out about, the less respect they have for them.
