    This is different.
    The police are defending their actions.

    Unbelievable to anyone outside America.

    So it's ok for four police thugs to smack him down when he made ZERO threats or moves against the cops? Did you actually watch the video? It looks like the cops ordered him to sit down and he didn't, maybe he was drugged up, whatever, but he was standing there and the cops just came up slugging.

    Do you seriously think that scene would have gone the same way if the dude was white?

    This was blatant abuse of police power, pure and simple.
