I don't think this could get much worse. People act like believing everything police say is a given even though they're caught lying constantly. People don't believe me when I say that police are above the law and know it. A police officer shot and killed an unarmed 16-year-old when the kid tried to stop the cop from assaulting his mother, in court, in front of the judge.
The video doesn't say if the cop will be prosecuted or if they're even to the point of trying to indict, but you can probably guess where my money is on the question of, "will the cop suffer consequences?"
As for the police union, here's how I know they're lying. The kid's mother and grandmother have nothing to gain out of lying. The entire court, including an actual judge, witnessed what happened. They can't lie and hope to gain anything. But the police? They know they can say whatever they want and get away with it. So they're going to stick to the script. It doesn't matter that a judge will know the truth.
These lawless murderers need to be done away with. But of course, many of the comments on the video are suggesting that children deserve to die for touching a cop. You can't defend your own mother when a cop attacks her. You have to let her be assaulted and abused or you're to be executed on the spot without trial.
There is no justice in this country.
