'Police brutality' protest in ABQ

'Police brutality' protest in ABQ

Yesterday dozens of people protested police brutality outside the Albuquerque Police Department Headquarters, as part of an annual event held on October 22. Specifically, they were protesting fatal shootings by officers, although this is only the tip of the iceberg. The majority of police brutality isn't fatal.

Anytime a person is grabbed, accosted, questioned, or "arrested" for doing something other than initiating force, fraud, theft, or possibly trespassing, he is a victim of police brutality.

And the tragic truth of the matter is some of those who were fatally shot by police needed to be shot. That it was a cop doing the shooting is beside the point.

Then these protesters watered down their stance even further by saying they are not "anti-cop". As the system is now set up, and until they implement my reforms, I am anti-cop. Any decent person has to be.
