A lot of nice white liberals have recently discovered, courtesy of a few prevalent taserings, that, holy cow, the cops are pigs.
Now this is not to imply that I feel anything other than sympathy and outrage, but if I may, nigga, please:
Police in the country are now allowed to torture speeders by the side of the highway in order to get them to comply.Yo, Digs, the five-oh been doin that shit forever. Far be it from me to rain on anyone's outrage parade, but the police have been torturing black folks for speeding--or not speeding--since he first black man drove the first car through the wrong neighborhood--or not the wrong neighborhood.
Anyway, this is what you might call the Niemollerian principle at work. First they came for the such-and-such, and then they came for me. I'm just saying.
