There is blatant video evidence of multiple cops beating up a helpless victim. No matter how violent or crazy the guy was (and this is far from clear), there is no excuse for supposedly professional law enforcement officials behaving this way.
Then a couple of days ago, we have a retired cop who shot someone in a movie theater after an argument over texting.
I realize these are just a couple of incidents, but if cops can get away with this kind of thing without fear of prosecution, we're well on the way to becoming a third world fascist police state.
