What I see in that video is called instigating an event and your vet there is the instigator. There have most definitely been cases of entirely
unprovoked police abuse and excess. THIS thread isn't showing one of them, IMHO.
Wait. Let me make sure I'm understanding your logic.
Because the protestor should have assumed the police would illegally remove his ability to protest, a first amendment right, and then commit acts of
police brutality, he shouldn't have been there at all?
you can't be serious. I've seen you, and your gang, try to belittle and smear these guys, and I've seen you try to justify what the police are
doing, but that logic is not only pure BS, it's 100% anti-american.
If the police attempted to arrest him, and he resisted, club the crap out of him, that's legal, to an extent. He was not under arrest, the officer
was not trying to detain him, the officer attacked him, clubbing him in the leg several times BEFORE telling him to get on the ground, which I assume
he wanted so he could apply ziptie cuffs and detail the guy.
In your twisted little world the ends might justify the means, but in most of our worlds, that's a load of crap.
Well, the British probably don't want to give America up and let it be free, so if we try to rebel, they'd probably fight back and possibly commit
war crimes, so lets just not get involved.
Don't get me wrong, the guy could very well be a dick, I don't know him, neither do you. All we can go by is the little bit of video provided.
Yes, we don't know what happened in the minutes leading up to the event, but we can clearly see how it went down.
Protestor standing in the street. Police line starts chanting, slamming their shields (it's a fear tactic that dates back to the romans) and moving
towards him, he backs up. they move, he backs up, they move, he backs up. a single officer steps infront of the police line, comes towards the
protestor and starts screaming for him to leave. Which, according to the first amendment, he doesn't have to.
This angers the officer as all peasants are supposed to immediately come to heel when they bark their orders. So he starts moving closer to the
protester, who is still stepping back, and grabs at him, or grabs him, trying to toss him off the street.
He has still not voiced any commands that would lead you to think he's going to arrest the guy.
And that's when he starts violently clubbing at the guys leg.
Even if the guy should fully expect the brutal corrupt NYPD to act in this manner, it sure as hell doesn't make it ok.
