This video below is infuriating. It’s a collection of video-shorts on police violence.
But, these video-shorts have been “cherry-picked” to support the contention that the America’s police have become increasingly prone to committing violence against innocent Americans. And there seems to be no doubt that the cops are dangerous to the people. But how dangerous? Is the growing volume of video evidence of police abuse simply the unfortunate result of a plethora of video cameras on the streets that record and post only the very rare instances of police abuse, or are the “pigs” really running wild?
• Most Americans believe it’s tough being a cop. Cops are portrayed as working in a dangerous world where they might be shot and killed at any moment by “bad guys”. And they’re all heroes, of course. So we need to give ‘em a little latitude whenever they go off the rails. After all, the stress of their highly dangerous profession could drive any of us off the edge from time to time, right?
