And yes, everyone should be denouncing police brutality, including conservatives who have traditionally supported the police. Failing to do so might result in perpetuating conditions that might allow you to get put in a chokehold for grilling in front of your house–even if you are a woman who is seven months pregnant and a threat to absolutely no one on the planet.
This abuse of police power is nothing short of appalling and despicable. Even more despicable is the fact that higher-ups who can put a stop to police brutality and punish those who abuse their authority turn a blind eye to stories of brutality instead. Speaking of which, I don’t suppose that any of the people who think that Bill de Blasio is the greatest thing since sliced bread are going to say anything about his dereliction of responsibility and leadership in this case. Are they?
