    I don't know what I just watched.

    From moment one, it is impossible to comply. Swarmed, chaos, mixed instructions. Then deliberately creating opportunity to have 'justification' to brutalize you. Even if you somehow resisted your natural self-preservation instincts, they were just going to beat on you anyway.

    Worst beating Iíve ever seen. Worse than Rodney King. The cop throwing the right hooks should be given the chair. Considering the victim was just a kid, makes me pissed. At least the city acted quickly, not sure how you could not.

    We have to clarify your comment. Victim was 29 years old. Not a kid.

    It's Catch 22--he runs from the cops because he's afraid they're going to kill him, so they kill him for running. At this point running is a justifiable response for any Black person confronted by the cops.

    Kaepernick was right.. 5+ cops can't just tackle and cuff one 160 pound guy without beating him to death? The entire institution is rotten to the core.. This isn't just a few bad apples. It's looking more and more like it's just a few GOOD apples..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    If there's a tiny silver lining, we're finally seeing condemnation against police by law enforcement officials:

    Police are at their core bullies. Like all bullies they target people they perceive as powerless--Black people especially but not exclusively--and cower in the face of power and authority. Police violence will not stop until prosecutors, judges, juries, and politicians stand up to the cops and make sure they face predictible and significant consequences for their actions. Protests, "reforms", and editorials aren't going to do it.

    I donít disagree, but I do think protest and editorials have helped. People, including myself, are much more aware of the extent of the problem than they were 5 years ago. Itís becoming more and more untenable for judges, prosecutors, chiefs, etc. to cover for this shit.

    And yet police kill more people than ever. A protest is an opportunity for the cops to knock heads, arrest "rioters" and maybe even kill someone. An editorial is something to wipe their asses with if the bathroom at the station has no tp.

    Body cams, and dash cams should be mandatory for 100% of police. If the encounter is not captured on camera, then the suspect should be assumed to have acted entirely lawfully during the encounter, and any actions taken by police during the encounter should be scrutinized as being taken against an entirely innocent party. I do not understand why this isnt standard practice in this day and age. What is the downside to this? Cloud storage space for the video footage? Really? there seem to be a number of easy solutions for that. Or is it just that cops don't want their methods scrutinized because the general public "just doesnt understand what it takes to subdue a suspect"?

    Police are not looking to police themselves at all so why would they even give this a fleeting thought?

    Youíre the bad guy. Same with me. We need policing but they donít. Thatís the mentality, period.

    Nothing is going to change as the top brass are worse than the actual soldiers. Iíve lost most of any and all respect for the police.

    I believe that the very large majority of cops are good. I truly think that the majority want to bring public respect back to the profession and better their relationship with their communities. The most obvious way to do this, IMO, is to be completely transparent and open about each and every interaction with the public. It would better weed out the bad cops, also help fight the false narrative that police brutality and abuse of force are "common" (or it would exposed the extent of the problem).

    To first solve a problem, you must first identify the problem and the extent of the problem. All sides agree there is a problem- whether it is with police actions, or the perception of police. so lets identify the extent of the problems by capturing video evidence of EVERY single interaction.

    Except these are the same police who vote in their union reps who perpetuate this stuff.

    Why are we letting police unions decide this? Make it a law.

    Your heart is definitely in the right place. I like these ideas and wouldnít things be better if they were instituted. Iím certainly a victim of cynicism over these last few years so forgive me if I remain skeptical. Iíll still hold out some hope but itís fading.
