I'll Shoot! Or, Stop...

Interesting article in the Los Angeles Times about escalating violence by Inglewood police officers against unarmed suspects.

  • One man was shot four times for pulling up his baggy pants
  • Another was shot for riding his bicycle on the sidewalk with a rolled-up t-shirt
  • Another was tasered in his genitals

Then there was the related story about women being raped and photographed during strip searches by the same police department.

I guess “To Protect and Serve” is intepreted differently in some locales...

Maybe high schools and colleges should start teaching "Corruption 101" so these people could at least be better at it.
