Police Brutality

Yesterday, at Scott Greefield's Simple Justice blawg, Scott featured the astounding assault on a handicapped man by two DC police officers.  The characterization of the assault by the DC police was a classic in the use of euphemism.  Since I'm not going to plagiarize Scott go to the link.  But let me give you this story from WSAV-TV Savannah, Ga.

Why do we tolerate this in our police?  I figure it's the same reason that Maricopa County tolerates Sheriff Joe Arpaio and OurTown tolerates, Jimmy Shoot'em.  We suffer the delusion that these violent/tough cops keep us safe.  Think again.
