      Obviously, a diary posted here is only going to show one side of the story.  For more information, I look at mainstream media reporting.  I'd love to be able to go to one site and get the entire story, but I don't think such a place exists.  So, I go to multiple sources.

        what happened.  And what really happened is often exactly the opposite of what the police say happened, as demonstrated by recent court cases in NYC where the streams ultimately showed the police were lying through their asses.

        Police generally can say any shit they want about what happened because there is (usually, almost always) no way to demonstrate they are lying.  And everyone believes them no matter how many times it is demonstrated that they in fact plant evidence, claim that someone hit or touched them when they did not, etc, etc.
