Yet another video of out of control steroid laden cop behavior.
If you look at this video, please ask yourself a question. There's obviously a city ordinance against skateboarding on city streets and sidewalks, probably with the ostensible intent of avoiding collisions and lawsuits. That the cops spend most of their time punishing people for breaking laws rather than serving and protecting is a given, so the cops are going to confront kids who skateboard on streets.
But ask yourself this - is the cop's comportment commensurate with that infraction or is there something else going on here? Is this and countless other examples showing us that people are being punished not for flouting the law, but because the cops are being taught they have the right to control our every behavior?
Grabbing kids by their throats is really going to help them learn to respect others.
