The "headline" for this post is intentionally provocative and pretty much unsupported by the facts.
While there is a kernnel of truth to the post (which is a transcript of a part of a YouTube blog dedicated to "exposing" police misdeeds) it omits many details. It also fails to link to anything that shows
1- why the guy was beaten in the first place (not saying I support the beating, just that there is more to the story)
2 - that the death was ruled not immediately caused by the beating. Lots of contributory factors at play, any of which singly or in combination, could be the cause of death
3 - that the cell phones were seized in compliance with a search warrant
4 - that the Sheriff has taken steps to prevent any claim of cover-up
Brown stuff happens and many times LEOs do act like jack-booted thugs. I'm not yet convinced this was one of those times, even though I disagree with how the cops dealt with the situation that led up to this incident. The Sheriff is not sweeping anything under the rug.
So how about we wait to see what the results of the FBI investigation are, and what the Sheriff does in response to that?
