Police Brutality

I don't often blog about police brutality and Tasers as a topic, but holy fricking hell, this story is so totally over the top, you have to read it from beginning to end.

The short form: African American business owner. Low blood sugar. Pulled over by police for weaving. Brutality ensues.

I realize police officers are in a difficult position, and decisions are often based upon snap intuition -- decisions that could mean life or death. But at the same time, too many officers are out on a power trip with way too much to prove and way too much anger motivating them.
