The corporatist fascist police state is on the march, unfortunately.

good lord, all that because she got "lippy" with a cop? of course there is no audio to the tape, but given what was said in the news story, i can't see how cops being so brutal to a teenager calling someone a fat pig would be justified.

Having said that the US is probably more accountable for investigating this kind of stuff than much of Europe.

Indeed, I would say Europe is much closer to the corporatist fascist police state than the US, as evidenced by the Genoa incidents in 2001 for example.

That's really disturbing. Nobody should be treated like that in prison, unless they point a gun at you or something life threatening like that.

Nice way to show your power Cop guys, it's totally brave to treat a child like that.

I dont wanna view that but we all already know that hundreds of cops abuse their power.

fuking taser is prob abused a lot too. its not funny watching them taser people unnecessarily! and sure one time UK prog showed this dude reporting these dicks in a car to the cops one time, but the COPS turned on THIS guy reporting because he was a bit flustered and obviously was 'for some fuking reason' speaking to the cops in a fashion that had them abuse their power, again.



not all of them. but still. many cops on self-made pedestals. would be great if those pedestals were the equivalent of the game - whatever it is, you remove pieces then at some point it falls down.

from what Ive been reading, poor girl in video.

Seriously. He should have just slammed the door in her face and walked away. He probably is a fat pig...

He pleaded not guilty - how the fuck does he figure?

The girl was probably scared out of her mind when the officer charged her and started beating her like that. Jesus, and when he lifted her by the hair. This man should never be allowed to work in law enforcement again - and especially not with young people. I hope she has someone who cares about her and who will help get her through this horrible incident and whatever put her in police custody in the first place.

That's no reason to beat someone to a bloody pulp. I swear, these officers should never work in law enforcement again. It makes me weary thinking that they're on the streets, for 'our protection.' Hell, we need protection from them.

it seems everyone was all in favor of treating that 11 year old that shot his father's pregnant girlfriend as an adult.


if this was a grown man kicking a shoe,
he would have probably gotten about the same, these are not two kids on a playground.

Police are trained not to let a perp escalate a situation.
Cops who hesitate, often end up getting killed by there own guns.

I don't care if it was a 15 girl or a 45 year male with a record, the action did not warrant the reaction. Yes police are trained not to let a perp escalate the situation, but she was already in the cell, a simple closing of the door would have stopped "the situation" from escalating...
