    Maryland Student Beaten By Police

    Did anyone else see the video of a 19year old Maryland student get beaten by police after a Maryland NCAA tourney win? The video shows the student skipping down the sidewalk right up to a police horse. The kid stops, obviously not wanting any trouble, and actually looks as if he was willing to back away when he sees he is now face to face with a horse. Then, with little to no warning, three police officers beat the living **** out of the kid with their nightsticks. To make things worse, the police report actually claims that the kid punched the horse, thus making it assault on an officer. The video CLEARLY shows no wrongdoing by the student. This kind of stuff makes me sick. The last I hear an officer had been suspended. That is all.

    There was a link to the video last night, but I forgot what thread it was in.. Maybe, the VEISHEA thread?

    But the police NEVER do anything wrong. Anyone who gets crap from the police deserves it. Always.

    Re: Maryland Student Beaten By Police

    I saw the video yesterday on CNN. Pretty disturbing stuff. The kid was doing NOTHING wrong.

    I firmly, firmly beleive after seeing enough videos similar to this one, hearing enough stories from friends, and reading enough actual stories in various media outlets that a sizable minority of police officers would be criminals themselves if they weren't in law enforcement.

    Before I get jumped on, I do think the solid majority of cops are decent, upstanding human beings with a strong sense of justice and duty, but it's stories like these that really upset me.

    I agree with this totally. It's not that all cops are bad/abusive of their power. Far, far from it. It's just that an unacceptable # of them are.

    Re: Maryland Student Beaten By Police

    Good article about this on Deadspin. Apparently this is one of the most brutal police departments in the nation. They were also the ones responsible for shooting two of the mayor's dogs after busting through his doors on a misguided "no-knock" drug raid.

    Agreed. Actually, its similar to the priest abuse cases... the vast majority are fine, but there are a small number that have been attracted to the job that have no business being there. And both organizations have had a habit of covering their own rather than eliminating the problem.

    On another note... if only we had this kind of video available for the start of the 2004 riots that showed the people who got maced who were doing nothing wrong as well.

    I agree 100%. my wifes coworker's husband is a cop and I'm pretty sure we will see him in a video some day. So much agression in a little mans body, I am 99 percent sure the reason he chose to be a cop is to get back at the world. Every time we get together with them he makes sure to tells me about how he would use his stick to take me down and what holds he could use on me to render me useless. I always come back with dude your 5'7" and maybe 150 lbs I am 6'7" and 270 lbs and I'm pretty sure your one stick swing you would get off would not take me down and there is not much you could do when I am sitting on you giving you a wedgie. He gets pretty peed off when I come back with that one because I'm sure his childhood was full of it. The guys own wife can't even stand to listen to him talk his tough guy talk and just now leaves the room.
