  •  I'm sure she began to resist (12+ / 0-)

    just about the time they began to beat her.

    Reminds me of a joke I heard from some Occupy protesters here in Portland, Maine the other year.

    A police officer walks up to a protester who is minding his own business, casually takes out his pepper spray and sprays the protester in the eyes. While the protester is covering his face, the cop takes out his baton and cracks him over the head. "Hey, cop, what's your problem, I haven't done anything!" The cop cracks him over the head again and says "Stop resisting!". "Resisting, you started it!". The cop cracks him over the shoulders. "Look buddy, I'm going to arrest you and I can't exactly arrest you for minding your own business." Before the protester can comply, the cop gives him a blow to the head which kills him. Just then the cop's supervisor appears and asks "What happened here?". "Suicide", the cop replies.

    What's sick is that that would not be even remotely (if darlky) amusing if it did not have a grounding in reality.
