    Speaking of police violence, check out this late-breaking video from Milwaukee, WI.
    Notice the standard shout of "stop resisting", when the guy is clearly face-down on the ground & being held there.

    I hope someone got a better video showing the other side of the car, & all of what they were doing to him. (And what he was or was not doing.)

    I'm not going to bother looking at the video.

    Instead, I'm going to remind everybody of what was finally determined about Rodney King and his 15 minutes of YouTube fame.

    stay safe.

    I will! That's why we're here. If you want to frontload fodder san facts, so be it. As for me, I'll review everything at my disposal.

    Back to the video...

    He was 2x the limit 1.5 hrs after. DUI? Of course. Subject to police brutality? HELL NO.

    The vic was a prone suspect. Resistance to handcuffing with three LEOs present does NOT warrant a beating.

    The beating officer's actions were way out of line. The other officers' actions with respect to setting up and maintaining a perimeter in such a potentially hostile environment were correct.
