    but these cops aren't.  They're pieces of shit.  Thugs.  I don't know how anyone sworn "to serve and protect" could do this to another human being.  

    That said, from watching the video, I couldn't tell why the first 2 Neo-Nazi-looking cops went off.  According to the article, supposedly the man who was beaten pulled a knife.  That in no way excuses the conduct of these officers, but I still think it's pertinent to mention in the diary how the incident started...had I not read the link, it almost looked as if he were tazed in response to an insult or noncompliance or something.  

    Again, nothing excuses these cops' behavior, but that detail would at least explain on what grounds some are apparently trying to get these fuckers' jobs back.
