Where have we seen the prejudice of police officers, loaded for bear, go awry before and then cover their own actions by attacking the victim? This story of a wrongful arrest has not been picked up by the mainstream media but should be.
A girl’s family has filed a lawsuit against Galveston police for their assault on their 12-year-old daughter after mistaking her for a prostitute.
Naturally, the officers involved testified under oath that they had acted appropriately and accused the victim of throwing punches, etc…. Luckily, the event was caught on video tape and the undercover officers’ honesty has come into question. On the video, which was shot outside Coors Field on the home opener of the Colorado Rockies game […]

Video from Rawstory. Honestly, if cops are so damn fearful for their own safety that they can’t exercise any judgment with the public then become a hazard to the community not a help. Some officers just shouldn’t be given toys like tasers. Scared cops are dangerous.
This is the direction the Carl Foster case is headed and there are some striking similarities between these two cases.

He was once a par golfer, accomplished enough to attract the eyes of those who run the Park Hill Golf Club. Now he wonders whether […]
In Albuquerque, NM a police officer attacks a news cameraman covering a shootout.

It is not hard to imagine that many more similarly disturbing events occur that are not video taped.
Television news video caught Philadelphia police officers kicking suspects. It is like watching rabid dogs tearing a deer to pieces. Disgusting!
