I was sure this was a BS story, so I watched the video on a four different news sites.
At least one blurred out what appeared to be a fair amount of blood coming form the back of this old guy's head as he lay on the ground.
These 57 police officers are dumber than s*** to resign over something like this.... pretty much gave up their law enforcement careers... no chance of collecting unemployment... likely anything they put into their law enforcement retirement plans just got pissed down the toilet.
Clearly these 57 police officers weren't cut out for the job emotionally nor intellectually.
If I were their boss, I would be thinking, " good riddance to bad rubbish."
I guess the "good news" is that they decided to pick on an old white guy for a change.
it seems like they only resigned from the tactical team.
because the city refused to be take blanket responsibility for their actions on duty and agreed to hold them individually responsible for their actions.
I think they are still cops and technically getting paid. Though I would be good riddance to bad rubbish" also.
Also it appears that the old white dude approached the cops to give them back a helmet they dropped and they shoved him out of the way, and quite possibly could have killed him. He is stable, but still in very serious condition.
There is a police problem in this country, its not just a black and white issue, it's just more apparent with black victims because they appear "scarier" due to a history of biases.
