  •  When the police act like jack-booted criminals, (15+ / 0-)

    our society needs to change.

    This was murder, and it was an abomination. That kid was egged into being resistant, and the cops seemed well aware that there was something 'off' about Kelly. That made him a potential outlet for their suppressed anger and resentment and feelings of entitlement.

    The officer who initially questioned Kelly kept twirling his nightstick, an intimidating action in and of itself. It could distract and throw off someone like Kelly who is already on the edge, and elicit non-cooperative and resistant behavior. The officer's intent appeared to be to upset Kelly and get him to react.

    Again, this shows a lack of appropriate leadership and training of our police forces.

       It would---after all---straighten many of them right out---it would improve their sense of balance---and cure what ails them.
