If this happened where I live in the UK there would an inquiry carried out by the police on themselves and it would find them innocent. Coppers know
that they can rape, murder and steal etc with impunity and then come off as hurt and indignant when they are the objects of scorn and disrespect.
These organised thugs answer to no one and are completely out of hand. I'm thankful that our dirtbags aren't routinely armed because they would
kill a lot more than American cops do. My Father has been saying it for as long as I can remember that the police are the most corrupt of all
organisations and I agree with him. Never trust the filth to act lawfully or tell the truth. Police, criminals, and lawyers, never was there a dark
triad in which the three elements were so deserving of each other.
Whilst I agree there would be a chance that the police would investigate themselves in the UK, there would be a huge deal made of it in the papers.
Remember when that guy got punched in the testicles in the UK around 6 years ago? It was headline news and the guy got suspended (have a feeling he
kept his job after a demotion though).
There has been many other incidents in the UK, with mixed results. But at least it is headline news and everybody makes a very big deal over it,
which, has helped reduce police brutality in this country.
No longer do people get beaten up so often in police cells, no longer do the police just randomly beat the # out of protesters. Sure they still are
brutal and use kettling (and we should cause a stink over it in order to try and stop that too) but I go to a lot of protests and always have, and we
have gone from police randomly beating up women to just plain aggression and kettling........ all because of the press and public causing a stink.
I don't understand why people in the States don't cause a bigger stink.
There seems to be an air of acceptance (I accept that this judgement is made from afar).
If this happened here, it would be headline news for weeks.
