Police



First:  Here is the article

Now; I am stunned at this part:
After reviewing the video, Kelly said he observed at least two cases of "active resistance" from protesters. In one instance, a woman pulls her arm back from an officer. In the second instance, a protester curls into a ball. Each of those actions could have warranted more force, including baton strikes and pressure-point techniques. 
"What I'm looking at is fairly standard police procedure," Kelly said.

Curling in a ball to protect yourself constitutes a reason to beat the shit out of a person?  Pulling your arm away?

The police are getting out of control in some areas.  Keep an eye on your own public servants to insure that they don't join this madness.

Our cops are too focused on revenue collection to beat anyone for any old reason. No profit in beating folks. They only beat or kill you for evading revenue collection...
