I've been reading a lot of police brutality cases, and a pattern emerges. When police thugs decide to assault a citizen, they tend to recite the mantra "stop resisting" as they do so. This is ridiculous, since their victim is reeling from shock over the assault, and never in any way resisting. One presumes that the only way to "stop resisting" to the satisfaction of these thugs is to instantly transform your flesh and bones into marshmallow fluff. If you could become weightless, boneless and cloud soft they might stop chanting "stop resisting". These police thugs also tend to drag or order their victim to a location where, had the assault began in that location and the victim moved to this location of his/her own volition, the victim would have been committing a crime. This location is often the middle of a street, a crime scene or property with legitimately restricted access. In many cases the thug drags the victim from the victim's home, car or yard. The victim is usually selected for brutalization because the victim is observing the police thug doing something the thug knows full well is wrong. God help the victim if he's using a camera to hold the thug accountable. These thugs have an overwhelming sense of entitlement. For a civilian to suggest in any way that ordinary social norms or even the rule of law could apply to the police is intolerable to the thug. This is the perceived injury which sets off the thug's uncontrollable rage. Every day this pattern is played out in communities throughout the U.S. A tiny fraction of these assaults make it into the public eye. This tiny fraction still represents one or two news reports each and every single day. This is typical: http://www.kiiitv.com/story/1718731...ansas-police-officer-of-using-excessive-force There's more. The vast majority of citizens seem to think our children are protected by police. This could not be further from the truth. Statistics reveal that Police are far more likely to be sexual predators than the general population, and the preferred victim is a child or young teen. It's nearly impossible to get official statistics on the number of such assaults, but the people keeping a tally of those assaults that make the newspapers have a chilling statistic for us. When they compare the number of reported cases to the number of police officers in the U.S., then compare that ratio to official statistics about the general population, then police are 14 times more likely to be sexual predators. If you try to find statistics on the number of citizens killed by police, you run into a blank wall. These statistics simply aren't available to the general public. It's easy to get numbers on the number of police killed, but the number of citizens killed is a closely guarded secret. American citizens need hard data on crimes committed by police officers in order to make informed decisions about public policy. We should be clamoring for an honest accounting of how police are interacting with the public.
