To Serve and Protect

Precinct meeting

Check out this video. Some off-duty dickhole from the Chicago Doughnut Squad gets drunk, gets cut off, and then beats on a woman who is, literally, less than half his size.

Sometimes people ask me why I don't trust cops. I point to incidents like this. Or Amadou Diallo, or Sean Bell, or any number of other instances. For those of you who are snooty, educated types--yes, I realize this is a single incident, and that the plural of "anecdote" is not "data."

Bonus, non-confrontational exercise for snooty, educated types--how many sociological phenomena can you spot in this video?
