I don't usually walk the police brutality beat around here, though I frequently read JPMasser's diaries and shake my head in disgust. But This atrocity just happened in my fair city & our newly elected mayor better do something about it.
Watch the video. This is the murder of an unarmed black man being accused of a misdemeanor offense of selling untaxed cigarettes - something for which, if true, he should have simply been issued a citation. These cops need to go to jail. This is just too much.
Sorry for the brevity of this diary, but I'll let the video speak for itself. I have no words.
Update: the video has been removed from the article. Here's a youtube clip of it:
3:39 PM PT: I just wrote the mayor's office to voice my disgust. I recommend anyone living in the city to do so as well.
