I put a question mark in the title because of this video: YouTube - Beat down at Walmart in Columbus, Ohio 08/01/2009 If you can't view the video I'll explain it. A lady was walking around a Wal-Mark parking lot with a knife. This lady is around 80 years old and when the police came, one of them threw her to the ground. Mind you, she - the 80 something years old lady - still had the knife when the officer approached her. After that, you have people around her screaming police brutality. Ok, I watched the video and I saw what happened. I see zero, nada, absolutely NO police brutality in this video. I don't see why every time an officer does something people scream police brutality - especially when it's so clear it's not. I know that police brutality happens, in fact, I've seen a video of a cop kicking a suspect that was down on the ground. However, it's funny that it's now a trend to scream police brutality every time an officer does anything. Heck, the officer could be defending herself and people will still say police brutality. Amazing... Now, there are a few points each side has made that I've read in the YouTube comments. People who say this is police bruality: o-- She is an 80 something year old lady. What can she do? o-- She is black, and of course, every time police get aggressive with a black person people will say police brutality. Even in this video you hear them mention the officers by race. o-- The officer walked up to her knowing she had a knife in her hand. People who say this is NOT police brutality: o-- She had a knife o-- The officer told her repeatedly to put it down.
