No - he's right.
This wasn't a lone cop having to make a split second decision on whether or not the guy was reaching in his waistband for a gun or his wallet.
This was a premeditated use of excessive force.
Why would you get all the troops there & get geared up for the party prior to it without the intention to join in the fun?
This took a massive amount of preplanning to coordinate several neighboring local forces with the state, bring gear in from miles away, establish
lines and a battle plan and then to just begin executing it without a triggering event.
This was a training exercise, likely planned weeks in advance if not months to piggy back of a yearly event where the site of kids having fun in a
police state with high unemployment and poverty would cause many people sitting at home eating hot dogs and macaroni and cheese to not have much
This is what our society is becoming, angry, poor, frightened highly polarized people looking for a pound of flesh to appease their frustrations
anywhere they can find it as long as it's not coming out of their own hide and wallet.
If the police had there way there would be no fun, the streets would always be empty, you would always be on your way to work or back in a three piece
suit and tie and lick their boots if stopped.
The rest of the time you would be in your house locked inside watching the Main Stream News media glorif the military and police or watching police
shows on TV that do the same.
We live in a police state, it is getting beyond out of control, they no longer believe they exist to protect and serve citizens, they believe they
exist to dictate to citizens every aspect of their lives, and to protect the state that signs their paychecks.
It's disgusting, we might as well be in Cuba.
At least there you are allowed to Samba.
