    reminds me a bit of the guy who got tasered to death at Vancouver airport. That sucks, and unfortunately in these situations the police tend to lie, and even if their lies are discovered they tend to get away more lightly than they should.

    My guess is just that he tried to get away.
    Could be, how do individuals get that they'd kill a man who's harmless and gentle for trying to get away?

    Because we live in America and know our police.

    Especially the police in the greater Los Angeles area.

    I'm glad Ireland is such a nice place.

    See that style of discussion really doesnt help you.

    Although the clarification that this is an anti-police hate thread is probably useful and the whether and why fors of participation in it will probably be clearer as a consequence too.

    As someone who lived through a great piece of history refered to nationally and internationally as "The Troubles" I'll not read too much into your final sentence.

    There are constant reports in L.A. of police brutality, completely bizarre unwarranted things, like shooting a random, innocent drunk man in his friends back yard watering the lawn at 4 am because they thought he might be a burglar.

    The problem here is that police here are so poorly educated and armed to the teeth, and everyone else is allowed to be armed to the teeth, and in a place like L.A. I think they face so much brutal combat it gives them PTSD and they just go crazy.

    It's not about being anti-police, it's about very specific conditions here which have produced what are essentially mad men.

    I do not say that all police are like this, and my experience with police in quieter small towns is that they generally are far more respectful and dutiful.

    There was a young fella in his early 20's who told me he was planning on becoming a cop. Within seconds I had his vibe down, but I still wanted to hear what kind of answer he'd give me, after asking why he wanted to become one.

    "I want to crack skulls."

    I looked him in the eye and told him to grow the fuck up.
    It's people like him who end up in situations like the one you posted.
    "Protect and Serve" becomes "Pummel and Shoot."

    That second picture in the article was really disturbing. It made me sick just looking at it.
