Stories from all over the nation every day feature DHS/TSA/VIPR incursions against citizens rights. Gangs of police-thugs run wild, abusing citizens with impunity directly in the public eye. It requires costly litigation and nerves of steel to even start to defend the victim of these assaults from the pile of obviously manufactured "charges" that serve to further devastate the victim. Kids used to want to grow up and be a policeman. To be a LEO used to be an honorable profession. The growing trend of thuggery in Police departments is unacceptable. We cannot tolerate this. http://www.courthousenews.com/2011/06/29/37770.htm A shocking pursuit, violent home invasion, prolonged assault, false arrest, false charges, conspiracy and other insane acts of malfeasance and committed by over 20 police officers offenders ensued. It really looks like the bored officer selected this child as an acceptable target for bullying, and the more civilians tried to intervene the more the offender escaleted the abuse. I think police offenders like Hooper feel entitled to abuse citizens with impunity. When a civilian tries to document their crimes or even take notice of the crime in progress, the victim is abused even worse and all civilian witnesses are at risk of being abused as well. Look how hard it is to get a Police department to discipline these offenders. I don't think we'd have a problem if the police would only police there own.
