It sounds like the Buffalo, NY Policle Department needs to clean up its act.

This source IS Raw Story for what it's worth. . . . I guess these fuckers think it's ok to beat up old people? Hell, I'm not saying it's ok to beat up YOUNG people either. . . .

But I watched the video, and two officers just walked off, leaving an elderly gentleman bleeding from his ear and the back of his head. As a nurse, I can say they could have killed him easily. And I can just imagine what they might have done had he been African American.

Why the fuck do these people think it's ok to do this? If there is something I don't know or am simply not aware of, please feel free to enlighten me. But from what I DID see, it seems it was a clear case of police brutality towards someone who was absolutely not a threat.

My apologies-- I think this is posted in LBN too.

1. This special unit is pissed that they cant beat up old men...

fire every cop in America over a 24 month period so you still have cops, rehire them IF they can pass the NEW psychological testing that will root out racists and overall bad cops...

They were "ordered" to clear the square. Apparently that means they can do whatever they want as long as it furthers the goal of clearing the square.

We really need to clarify to the police exactly what their job is. And what it isn't.
