I’m sure you might’ve seen this on the news recently… Philadelphia police officers apparently “losing control” and kicking, punching, stomping and baton whipping three suspects:
1. I don’t care if the police had justifiable cause. This doesn’t look right.
2. I thought that suspects are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law. Apparently, for whatever reason, the police officers decided to have the trial, verdict and punishment delivered right there in the street.
3. Watching police officers brutally beat people like that… how am I supposed to feel safe? How am I supposed to trust their motto… “to protect and serve”?
4. People need to learn that violence only causes more violence. Only hate causes more hate.
I know there’s a lot of violence out there. But watching this… I feel really sad, folks. This brings tears to my eyes. 🙁
