Of course right now if you say anything against the action of an officer, Dallas will be invoked against you, as if 7/7/16 is some kind of magical hall pass for all police brutality ever after, but here are a few random thoughts…
There’s a huge push on social media right now for people to conform and accept the burgeoning American police state, to beg for it in fact. To condone atrocious acts of violence against citizens. To grant even more power. If we’re truly living in a Matrix, you could easily say a giant program is being run on the entire population to gain this acceptance through emotional and psychological manipulation. It’s all about violence, anger, and fear. Especially fear.
In reality, if the cops in this particular video had handled this situation properly, the only thing you’d remember about it is the woman’s criminal behavior… not theirs.
P.S. – Do you think the kind of brutality and violence we’ve seen from the police state in the past decade would’ve passed even 40 years ago?
