    In a slightly larger context, what's important are discovered statistically. How often do cops do this? Is there an obvious racial or other imbalance? Is there a location difference?

    According to one cop I knew, it happens pretty often in Flint, MI.
    They'll beat anyone, white or black.

    Probably the false equivalency.

    That what is equivalent to what?

    What I saw was cops telling him to roll over,
    but preventing him from doing so while
    punching him for not rolling over.

    Yeah well cops will kick the crap out of you if you give them a reason. They dont care if you black or white, run that mouth just a lil too much and it might get busted.

    The video is far too short to judge. Though it appears that he was at the very least resisting arrest. And though not convicted he was being arrested for an outstanding warrant. That almost always means that he knew that he was supposed to turn himself in but did not. I wonder if I can find anything else on this.

    I'm not the one drawing the equivalency, you'd have to ask the OP.
    However, if you're suggesting there is no equivalency being drawn (false is my opinion, so you don't have to agree with that) I'd like to sell you a small bridge in Brooklyn I own.

    You decried one.
    I didn't see it.
    So I asked.
    You didn't answer.
    Again...
    What is equivalent to what?

    It's like some modern game, where we use code words to message, but allow plausible deniability...

    The OP is crafted as a facsimile of posts and media where there is a focus on cops bullying and beating blacks.

    So no claim of equivalency, eh.
    Perhaps you've discomfort when attention is given white victims too?

    Btw, the guy looks white, but is he?
    Protesters (family & friends) are both white & black.

    Why? I'm white, and been a victim of actual race based violence.
    What is it you want? Me citing journals? This is a weird conversation.

    People join the police force to see action. That's who joins. They tend to be people who are considering joining either the military or the police.
