Perp Video

Here's the video of the cops handcuffing the 5 year old girl.

Interesting that in the initial coverage, nothing I saw remarked on the fact that this was an african american child and white cops. Also interesting, while the kid "Ja-isha" is clearly out of control before the cops come, it's the cops that escalate the encounter--it's what they do after all.

The thing about the video is it demonstrates perhaps better than most anything else of late, how unidimentional cops are--how their primary reaction to volitility is a massive display of force. Just for fun--try sometime to take a video of cops making an arrest--though I'll warn you, you may need my services if you try.

Makes you wonder what kind of world we live in.
