http://loop21.com/life/houston-cop-beating-chad-holley-cries-in-court-feared-for-life These "officers" had just struck the boy hard with a police car. He flew through the air and hit the ground, motionless. In a flash at least a half-dozen police thugs converged over his inert body, kicking his head, grabbing his arms and heaving him this way and that, not ceasing even after he was cuffed. It's improbable the victim was conscious. If he was conscious he was clearly dazed with shock, because he did not move during the entire thug-scrum. Given that the victim had just been hit by a car, thrown several yards into a chain link fence and then bounced back another half dozen yards to the ground where he lay inert, the appropriate response would have been to render immediate first aid. First aid which does not consist of wrenching the patient's possibly damaged spine or repeatedly kicking his possibly concussed brain. The potential to complicate the injuries from the initial accident would be of paramount concern to an ethically normal, reasonably educated first responder. These sociopathic thugs actually think some crocodile tears and whimpering about having felt afraid will distract the jury from their moral depravity and viciousness. God, I pray not! How stupid can jurors be? PS: I do not like how 'FEELINGS" were elevated to such importance in the latter part of the 20th century that "FEELINGS" now trump REASON and ETHICS. This trend must be reversed. Officers claims about their "FEELINGS" which preceded the decision to assault citizens should not justify excessive force.
